Arguably the most popular family in all of American television is the Kardashians. They wouldn’t have earned such recognition without their mother, Kris Jenner, who acts as their manager. She is the executive producer of their famous show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. As of 2022, Kris Jenner has an estimated net worth of $170 million.
Kristen Mary Jenner was born on November 5, 1995, in San Diego, California. Her father, Robert True, was an engineer and her mother, Mary Jo, was a children’s clothing shop owner. Kris also has a younger sister named Karen.
Her parents decided to split up when she was seven years old. Kris and Karen lived with their mom, who married entrepreneur, Harry Shannon. With this, she got a half-brother called Steven.
Harry moved the family to Oxnard, California, but they later went back to San Diego. There, Kris helped out with her mom’s store and graduated from Clairemont High School in 1973.
After finishing high school, Kristen landed a job at a donut shop. Later on, in 1976, she became a flight attendant at American Airlines. She left her position after one year. In the 90s, she advertised workout equipment on QVC.
In 2007, she was introduced to producer Ryan Seacrest. She pitched the idea of having a reality show centered on her family’s daily life. Seacrest agreed, and the show was titled ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’.
It started airing on the E! cable network in 2007. Eventually, the program became one of the longest-running reality TV shows in the United States. Furthermore, it sparked numerous spin-off series due to its success.
Jenner also got her own talk show titled ‘Kris’. It premiered in 2013 on a number of Fox stations. Her latest reality TV venture is The Kardashians, a Hulu series released in 2022.
Apart from media appearances, Kris also makes money from other business ventures. She is the owner of the production firm Jenner Communications and clothing brand Kris Jenner Collection.
Net Worth and Earnings
Kris is a real business and media mogul. She serves as the manager of her celebrity children and a couple of other stars. She gets a 10% cut from all the earnings of the clients she manages.
However, she hasn’t revealed how much she makes from her other pursuits. It’s worth noting that she has book sales from her two written works. She makes public speeches and is paid $50,000 to 75,000, which adds to her $170 million fortune.
With this, she had six more kids: Kendall, Kylie, Burt, Casey, Brandon, and Brody. Caitlyn and Kris got a divorce in 2015. Since then, Kris has been dating talent manager Corey Gamble and currently lives in Hidden Hills, California.
