Kris Jenner is a monstrous genius, gets named the new “fill-in host” of ‘The Talk’


Kris Jenner is a monster. Can I say that? Sure. Because it’s a fact. Kris Jenner has just been named the “fill-in host” of CBS’s The Talk. We discussed The Talk a few weeks ago, when Page Six reported on the internal issues the show was having, what with Scientologist Leah Remini fighting with everyone and Julie Chen acting like she was better than everybody because she’s boning the boss. Now add Kris Jenner into the mix. Disaster. But is it a watchable disaster, or will it be as interesting as watching rats escape from a sinking ship?

What in the world is CBS thinking? The network is going to announce shortly that Kris Jenner, the insufferable manager mom of those incredibly annoying Kardashian sisters, is the new fill-in host on The Talk. (Don’t these people have enough money for doing nothing already? I suppose Jenner at least can talk about her plastic surgeries…)

Also being added is Sheryl Underwood, the African-American stand-up comedienne used to be a regularly syndicated radio personality on the national Tom Joyner Morning Show as well as on the Jamie Foxx channel for Sirius XM satellite radio. She is now a weekly contributor on radio’s Steve Harvey Morning Show. A former member of the U.S. Armed Forces, Underwood likes to call herself ”a sexually progressive God-fearing black Republican”. (Black GOP-er? CBS went looking for a needle in a haystack…)

As for Sharon Osbourne, she wanted out of the daytime gabfest but will come back for six non-consecutive weeks. Sara Gilbert, who’s considered one of the creators of the show, and Les Moonves’ wife Julie Chen are still on board in front of the camera. But as Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva previously scooped, options for Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete weren’t renewed. It’s been no secret that tensions between most of the women, especially with the overbearing “Chenbot”, had developed during the first season. Sounds like the backroom battles were far more interesting than anything on air: the jealousies, the bickering, the micromanaging. All I know is I wouldn’t want that famous-for-being-famous Jenner momager, who’s already a fixture on E! Entertainment thanks to Ryan Seacrest, anywhere near a network camera. Ugh!

[From Deadline]

“The jealousies, the bickering, the micromanaging…” why isn’t THAT a show? That would get better ratings than Kardashian/Jenner stunt-casting. Sidenote: did you guys watch Oprah’s “Behind the Scenes” show on OWN? That was so awesome, and WAY more interesting than Oprah’s last season. Behind-the-scenes dramas, no matter how mundane, are almost always more interesting than the actual shows.

By the way, did you hear that Kris Jenner is now Kris Humphries’s manager? True story. Kris Jenner manages all of her daughters, and while they all turn a profit, nothing says “this will all end in a horrific disaster” like Kris Jenner assigning herself a new client in her daughter’s athlete-husband. Does Jenner manage Scott Disick too? No, right? I feel like Scott has his own people, separate from the Kat-Face Klan. Same with Lamar Odom. So what’s the big deal with Humphries? He must be super-dumb.

    What’s happened to her nose?

  2. someone says:

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe Lamar Odom is also being managed by Kris Jenner…or that’s at least what I read. Either way, it’s totally crazy and whenever I see that woman, I can see dollar signs flashing in her pupils…

  3. LIVEALOT says:

    her nose is botched!

  4. Innocent says:

    That wasn’t a smart move by Kris to allow his mother in law to manage him although everyone thinks the marriage will last a year tops.
    I will not be watching this and how will she find the time ?
    E! created this!

  5. VeneficA Delirium says:

    I’m so totally going to tune in for Kris Jenner’s refreshing and down to Earth insights.

    *Coughing fits*.

    Wow, her nose just keeps getting smaller and smaller every time I see her, and her eyes look insane. Not a good look, tootz.

  6. chakliuk says:

    Gross, look how much alike Kris and Sharon Osbourne look. they could be sisters with all that messed up plastic surgery.

  7. Relli says:

    hahahahahaha… you know after Jezebel posted that video Kris did in her younger days it was blatantly obvious that this stage mommy’s ways were more about her own desire for fame. Also the blowing a kiss pose is sooooooooooooooooo lame, lady you are too old to be thinking you are still cute when you do that, actually they all are.

  8. tiki says:

    it looks like kris inherited michael jackson’s nose now that he’s no longer using it.

  9. Jackson says:

    I’ve only watched this show a few times. Will there be anyone left to be snarky at this woman when, inevitably, her famewhore daughters pop up in the press? Anyone to challenge the truckload of BS she will try to dump on the American public? Ugh. Why is this woman being given a platform to speak? I guess she can teach moms how to famewhore their children into a corporate entity. Sad.

  10. TQB says:

    God, I just f’ing LOATHE this woman. She is hateful. Rich and famous for whoring out her children. Very nice.

  11. your mama says:

    Does she plan on running for President next? Will she try to take over the world…. :-O

  12. your mama says:

    cracking myself up – seriously, look at her last pic… she’s thinking, the world is mine! Mine! Mine! (cackling). LOL

  13. Maritza says:

    I’m not sad to see Leah Remini go, I like Holly though. Julie Chen does take over the show, the woman doesn’t shut up. Kris Jenner is a good addition to the show, it’s going to be interesting to watch how all those women get along.

  14. the original bellaluna says:

    Thus ensuring that I will never watch this show.

    Wow, that’s definitely going to make the subsequent divorce much messier, isn’t it just? (Talk about a glaring conflict of interest.)

  15. fabchick says:

    I think she is Lamars’s “entertainment” manager ( for the reality shows and endorsement deals) and he has a separate manager for his basketball career. I read that after they got married. These men are fools.

  16. Kasey says:

    WHHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY??!!!!!! I’m SO ready for their eleventy minutes of fame to be OVER! Everytime I think I may be seeing the light peeking in at the end of the tunnel it feels like a dump truck dumps a load of bricks and sod on top of that little ray of light. Go away already! Well, Khloe and Lamar can stay.

  17. Jayna says:

    I have to give Chris Jenner credit. She is extremely driven in her fifties at a time when many rich wives just shop. But she’s becoming so huge that I see Bruce leaving her in a few years. He’s bored and alone a lot And his girls are older. I see an affair on the horizon

  18. Sassy says:

    When is this show on? What channel? I don’t watch much daytime TV. Gotta watch it, though. My sentiments about this bag of wind are with you. She is a no talent, who pimps her no talent, vapid children and pathetic husband, Bruce.

  19. Truthful says:

    unfortunately she DOES manage Lamar Odom. smdh.

    I won’t be watching this, never have.
    that Chen lady irks my nerves and now with the new added hens there is NO way.

    I do like Ms. Gilbert, but I’ll pass.

  20. as says:

    Her right nostril looks like it’s going to collapse. She pared it down too much. On the other hand this isn’t farfetched because she used to host a LA morning show before she popped off the ho sisters.

  21. boo says:

    I do not watch the K’s at all, I thought the wedding was tacky but that was to be expected. And now daytime TV for the mom? Why? I don’t like them and her specifically because they are greedy and disgusting in their greediness, little piggies who never get enough.

  22. 4Real says:

    A little off topic but, I couldn’t wait to share…

    True Story:

    I’m driving home yesterday on the freeway (99) and some GROSS POLLUTING big rig is in front of me with smog just pouring out the top of it. Had the whole freeway filled with smog and it was pulling a truckload of…wait for it….

    KIM’S perfume with her picture plastered all over the side. Coincidence…?? I think NOT!!

  23. the original bellaluna says:

    Now the day Pimp Mama & White Oprah team up, well…that will be some Apocalypse-level 2012 shit and we are ALL in SERIOUS trouble.

  24. faye says:

    Face like a pig. Fitting.

  25. corey says:

    She really is the devil in a leopard print dress

  26. BeckyR says:

    Include me OUT.

  27. Poison Ivy says:

    Oh Lord, there ain’t no good plastic surgeons in LA huh? She probably went to the cheapest one…

    I would rather stab myself then walk around like my face was been hitten by a tank!!!

  28. Firecracker says:

    Kasey, I totally agree, whyyyyyy.

    On a side note, I was watching TMZ on tv last nite and they showed the “newlyweds” on their honeymoon. The bride was laying on top of the groom on a chaise lounge making out. It was the most vile, revolting thing I have seen in a long time. And sooo staged.

  29. gee says:

    This is the perfect fit for her. She’s like an evil genius. She has such hustle.

  30. KC says:

    I liked the show as it was, including Holly and Leah. Why do the Kardashians have to ruin everything?! Ugh I can’t stand this family! If Kris is there I will definitely not be watching.

    I do hope the rumors about Julie Chen being a b*tch aren’t true because I really like her, especially on that show.

  31. says:

    That woman has “666” etched into her cranium.

  32. Juliesunflower says:

    Say what you will about Mama Kim; fact is she stood up for her daughter during her time of need.

  33. Kelly says:

    Disgusting. I feel sad for Sara Gilbert, she is awesome. It must be embarassing to share a show with this repulsive person.

  34. Truthful says:

    yeah she STOOD up for her alright!!

    she got KIM, 5mil for the horrible sex tape, KIM is JUST like her mama back in the day.

    minus the coke

    she’s always been a athlete ball chaser-pun intended, especially while married.
    ask Faye Resnick.

  35. lila says:

    I don’t think l poor Lurch has enough of a brain to realize Kris managing him is a bad idea. She probably told him it was fate since they had the same name.

    I never watched the talk, but if they would actually broadcast all the drama I might. Trainwrecks are highly entertaining. Just ask linnocent:)

  36. Ally says:

    That episode where Kris Jenner talks her daughter Kim into revealing more for Playboy to get the cover and more money was like a reality version of a Law & Order episode… you know, the one where the fame-hungry mother makes her daughter do porn, and the girl kills herself? /shudder.

  37. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    I don’t know if ‘stood up’ is the phrase, so much as ‘controls sales and takes a sizeable cut off the profits’.

  38. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    Sara looks so dejected in that photo.

  39. Cherry Rose says:

    Sharon Osbourne and Kris Jenner in the same room together? Either they’ll get along great, or it’s going to be all out war.

    I hope it’s the latter.

    And I feel bad for the Jenner girls. Their time to be pimped out is coming up pretty soon.

  40. Skinnybetch says:

    Kris could be lounging around her million dollar home all day doing nothing with Bruce, so kudos to her for being a savvy business woman and a grade A hustler. Typical Scorpio. . .

  41. Erica says:

    Kris does manage Lamar.

  42. Debsa says:

    I’m done with “The Talk”…

  43. Anne says:

    Well good thing I can’t stand any of those women – because if I liked the show before, I’d boycott it with her on it for sure.

  44. Tristyn says:

    WTF !!!!!!does this greedy bitch have to taint everything.. GOODBYE CBS !!!!!

  45. Shona says:

    Okay I think they all need on a diet except for Kourtney and Kendell and the kissy-face pic is ridiculous! And that wedding dress that was suppose to be so gorgeous was tacky. Sorry Vera Wang. I seriously don’t see what anyone sees in the K’s. All attention seekers if you ask me.

  46. Sohpie says:

    Oh my — how horrible is that? American media has become a joke by promoting this trash family. So disgusting and speechless. When the media will understand that promoting this family does not increase the value of journalism? It is only making this unscrupulous family richer and richer by the day. So damn sad and unfair. Enough already.

  47. Lu says:

    She totally used her husband industry connections for that video Randy Newman is listed as a collaborater and he does the music for Disney and Pixar films!

    It’s pretty S%%% how she dropped Robert Kardashian for Bruce, right?

  48. eternalcanadian says:

    Ugh. Good thing I don’t watch that show. I don’t even watch The View and barely watched Oprah. Only thing I watch is Dr. Oz. Daytime television blows. Bleh!

  49. ShanKat says:

    The Suck.

    @Truthful knows. Coke nose!


  50. jover says:

    That’s what i can’t understand sophie; what hold does this classless trash have on the media – the talk shows, the fashion/womens mag/pop culture events,etc., – and the media enable this with a straight face as though it were the pinnacle of culture, and yet they trash the palins, bachmans, but elevate this – and no one calls them on it; something is going on with the media and pop culture that this is happening; is this clan truly, truly that popular or do they simply now have the money to buy their way into our collective consciousness?

  51. dorothy says:

    I’m over the Kardasian’s. They were somewhat interesting, but now the media has saturated the market with them. I think it has done the opposite of what was intended. Just turned people off.

  52. Laura says:

    ENOUGH!!!!!!! Really, this latest venture is just plain ludicrous. She has nothing to contribute; she only takes!!! She’s the poster old lady for everything that is wrong with this country, Be gone, already, and take those uneducated, materialistic lame-brained hookers with you,

  53. Judy says:

    LOL @ Tiki–agree and I won’t ever watch The Talk when she’s on…she’s as plastic as her nose is. Run Bruce Run! (Oh, and I want to know how she’s still 55 when she was 55 when the series started…looks like she’s even gotten Google to change the date of her birth. I hate liars and frauds.)

  54. Sohpie says:

    @jover: you are so right when you note these two women in politics and even Clinton and others. They go through hell by media and it is never easy for them and they do not get this recognition although they really contribute to US life and politics. The sad part is the the level of intelligence of the audience in the US is going in the lowest level. I mean what do you learn by watching Kardashians and promoting them. I really do not get it. Other than showing their blings and stupid talks on their show I really do not see any little value. I never watch their show but had to click once on these advertisement on internet just to see what is going on and was totally shocked. Reality shows are getting redicilous.
    What I would love to see as much as I hate it, is having Kriss Jenner replace one of the big names in TV such as Katie Couric and others and let see if they are going to promote her anymore and interview her fake daughters. Believe me Kriss Jenner is so delusional she can run media empires and replace the CEOs and she would not give a damn even knowing she is no one. She just got lucky by the US stupid media and that’s all. She will never had this luck if she was in Europe and any other country.

  55. skeptical says:

    I feel sorry for Sara being stuck in that mess. I loved Darlene and Sara seems so down to earth, her split with her ex is so drama-free, she doesn’t seem to seek the tabloids. She seems classy. She’s like the polar opposite of kris jenner.
    Poor Sara.
    I ain’t watching this but i’ll keep an eye out for Sara’s next project.

  56. Carolyn says:

    hehe I’d love it if the ladies on this show called Kris out on her pimping of her own family….that would be stellar tv viewing.

  57. Bopa says:

    She has a coke sniffers nose. I’m not saying she does coke because I haven’t witnessed her snort it…

    Just mentioning that she has the nose of a coke snorter.

  58. your mama says:

    Ok, I just had to come back to this post b/c of her NOSE. Her one nostril is freaking me out and now I see what I must have missed earlier. Oh for the Love of Pete – WHAT is wrong with it???!!!

  59. Amanda says:

    She has said on the show several times “You do not mess with my family and you definitely don’t mess with my business.” Shouldn’t it be definitely not mess with the family? Doesn’t she have enough money yet?

  60. Barb says:

    Amanda, (#59) My thoughts exactly!!! Family should of been what she said you definately don’t mess with not her business, that was a disguisting comment by her.

  61. mike says:

    dont like the new show bring back Holly an Leah

  62. anom says:

    Kris Jenner is a loser.She looks ridiculous. She is revolting, dresses gaudy and trashy.
