I loathe any schtick that deals with eating gross stuff. James Cordon plays this game on his show called Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts, where you either have to answer a question or eat something gross. He’s done it several times with the Kardashian-Jenners. James had Kris Jenner on this week and made her choose her poison. But he went easy on her while she grossed us out by making James eat a cow’s tongue. I’ve posted the clip at the bottom for those less squeamish than me. At one point, James asked Kris if the diamond ring she had been spotted wearing is an engagement ring from Corey Gamble. I can answer that – no. Even if they are engaged, I can promise you any ring she’s wearing is from herself. Kris, however, refused to give an answer and ate a cricket instead.
For his last question, James gave the E! star the option of eating crickets or responding to a rumor. “I’m not eating a cricket!” Kris said. With a devilish smile, James replied, “You might be!”
“Kris, you’ve been spotted wearing a massive diamond ring on your wedding finger,” James said. “Are you and Corey Gamble engaged?” Initially, Kris said “no” and took a long, hard look at all the crickets. Then, James asked, “Do you mean ‘no, you’re not going to answer,’ or ‘no?’”
“No!” Kris said. “I’m not going to answer!”
The camera then cut to a shot of Corey on the side of the stage, grinning from ear to ear.
“The ring’s right there,” James told Kris, pointing to her hand. “It’s a real giveaway.”
“This isn’t the ring,” Kris replied, to which James smiled and said, “But there is a ring!” That elicited a big laugh from Kris, who then took a bite of the cricket—and still evaded the question.
I swear, her coquettish refusal to answer was more groan-inducing than the cricket-eating. What truly baffles me is why on earth would she evade this, of all questions? I asked Kaiser for a motive and her theory is that it’s all for a hyped-up storyline that will be dragged to death on KUWTK. Of course that makes perfect sense. We are talking about the strategist who still hasn’t officially confirmed Kylie’s pregnancy. And whatever her motive is, Corey has been trained accordingly because he wore a coy grin on the cutaway implying he’s not telling either. Lord, I hope he’s getting paid enough for this nonsense.
I’m sure this contrived intrigue is for the show. And the cat and mouse game Kris is playing is to drum up interest because I’m sorry, do we really care? I’m sure Corey is a nice enough guy and if he’s in love with Kris – more power to him. They just don’t generate any excitement in me. Actually, her keeping him and their relationship out of the spotlight would be far more interesting. Alas, I don’t think Kris knows how to view any relationship outside how it will play to the audience.
