The matriarch of the Kardashian clan worries for the next generation.
Kris Jenner fears her grandchildren will be bullied. The comment came during a special round table discussion for The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s my grandchildren who I worry about because I have six of them; the oldest just turned 7, and my youngest is 6 months old, and they don’t have a choice,” Jenner stated.
“And I worry, I do, because it is such a bullying environment,” she further explained. Jenner’s grandchildren are Mason, Penelope and Reign Disick; North and Saint West; and Dream Kardashian.
Speaking about her own famous offspring, Jenner described Kim Kardashian as the leader of the squad: “Kim leads the pack, and she’s the queen of thick skin. She counsels everybody else,” Jenner said of her 36-year-old daughter. “So if something happens in the family, she’s the first one you call. ‘What should I do? How should I handle this?’”
It was a bold move for the family to embrace the very real stresses of reality television and Jenner was cautious ever since “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” took off. “We decided as a family that if we’re going to do this, we would just show everything,” the 61-year-old elaborated.
“And one of the best decisions I made not only as a producer of the show but as one of the stars of the show was to say, ‘We’re not going to remove anything,'” she added. “With that philosophy, I told the kids, ‘Don’t get on the internet.’ Now it’s so amplified… you expect it now from the trolls.”
“There’s somebody everyone can relate to in my family — whether you’re 7 or 107 — and I think people got emotionally attached and invested.”
