Kris Jenner defends Kendall’s party: ‘All we can do is live our lives’

To help distract a nervous country from a crucial election, the blessed Kardashian-Jenner Klan performed a series of circus acts. Kim Kardashian colonized a small island, while Kendall Jenner took over the roof of a popular LA hotspot. They were both celebrating lavish birthdays with large groups of people during a very dangerous pandemic. In Kendall’s case, she’d meant to keep her wealth and stupidity under wraps by asking her incredibly vapid friends who don’t exist outside of their social media accounts not to post anything. Oops, that message must have fallen off the table. Or no, wait, it’s right here, in all the photos being posted on IGs – haha, we’re so funny.

After the inevitable backlash ensued, ol’ Momager Kris Jenner lumbered off her Throne of Cash to do damage control and once again play the Jelly Haters card for anyone trying to get mad at the girls, who are getting through this trying time the best they can.

Kris Jenner is addressing the backlash aimed at her family after her daughter Kendall Jenner threw a large party amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 64, responded to the uproar over Kendall’s recent Halloween bash — which was also a celebration of the model’s upcoming 25th birthday — during her appearance on SiriusXM’s Radio Andy on Monday.

“We live our lives, trying to be just really good people,” Kris began, after host Andy Cohen asked how she handles negative comments about her children “as a mom and their manager.”
“We’re dealing with lots of people that have different opinions, and all we can do is live our lives the best way we know how and be responsible and do the right thing. And we’re doing that,” she said. “And I think, I am very sensitive to what’s going on. Believe me, you know, I’ve really tried so hard.”

The matriarch went on to explain that her family is “very lucky to work in an industry where we get tested once or twice a week” as they film the final season of their reality show, saying that they all get tested for COVID-19 “whenever we have a gathering, no matter how big or small.”

“At Kendall’s, everyone got tested before they walked in the door and they had to wait a half an hour until … the results were in,” she continued, adding that people were also “tested a few days before” Halloween as well. “So we are really responsible, and we make sure that everyone in our family and our closest friends are tested religiously.”

“We do what we can. We try to follow the rules. And then, if people are commenting and they’re being critical, I can’t control that,” Kris said. “I just can control how we behave, and I try to do the best we can.”

Kendall’s party was in violation of the three-household restriction so there is no defending that, no matter how good of a person Kris wants to be. The testing part is interesting. I had no idea we had tests that could give results in 30 minutes. What did the guests do while they waited? Was there some clean room in which they could wait? Isolation booths that got scrubbed down between guests? They must have started testing at 5 in the morning to ensure proper social distancing while awaiting results. I don’t doubt these people probably are tested all the time so I’m willing to concede on this one minor point, that perhaps the guests were, in fact, healthy. I assume the establishment’s staff was as well, it would only be fair, right? I question those who tested prior to the party, though. I’ll bet the Kar-Jen Klan took their guests’ word for it.

Once again, though, the bigger demon is Kris optics. Kendall did not need a swanky 25th birthday party, just like Kim did not need an extravagant 40th, not during a pandemic. Health care professionals and disease prevention experts are trying to get us all to adhere to the same guidelines to get through this. Kendall and Kim might have tested everyone because they can afford to. But others are running down the street without masks on, screaming for the country to reopen. So Kris is wrong that they’re being responsible and doing the best that they can. I think they are living selfishly. This is one of the greatest crises we’ve faced as a country and they’re having huge parties and complaining because we suggested they should have known better.

    So much privilege, but no brain or decency.

  2. Noki says:

    I can almost understand someones genuine desire to have a 40th and 25th birthday celebration,those are big milestone ages.But this family just loves the attention. Every Single YEAR they have to have a shindig(and since they are so many members its none stop birthdays every other week)but there comes a stage in life say age 13 where you really should only make a fuss about the BIG birthdays.

  3. KS says:

    Influencers who don’t want you to live by their example 🤔 cuz you know, everyone can afford what they can. #tonedeaf

  4. Chaine says:

    All of the rest of us peasants have had to have our birthday parties on zoom this year. The Kartrashians used to amuse me, but now I truly hate them.

    • Shane says:

      Right? I usually don’t click on articles about them, but, they’ve been everywhere. In the news for their useless stunts.

      My hope is that we leave these people behind in 2020… the world has gone through such a seismic shift, there can’t be room in our lives for the kardashians going forward ✊🏾

    Yeah, either that, or Kris is lying about the testing-before-entering part. As you’re showing here already Hecate, it’s not even logistically possible. I think she just made it up afterwards to not make it sound so bad.

    • Noodle says:

      I think the tests she is referencing are the same ones they give athletes and politicians, where results are immediate. The thing is, from what I understand, is that they can give false positives and aren’t as reliable. I would love to see the data from the test results because of all the people there, statistically, someone probably got a positive test (false positive). What then? Test again right away until you get the result you want?

      And this “We are doing our best” is bologna. If they were doing their best they wouldn’t have had this party. The rest of us have gone party-less since March. We haven’t gone on wild vacations or colonized islands. Why is what’s “doing my best” not good enough for you entitled twits?

    • paranormalgirl says:

      The rapid tests are not as accurate as they should be and should not be counted on to be a good indicator of infection.

    • Val says:

      New York has 15 min results and also results in 3-4hours. I’ve done both, but for some reason, felt more confidence from the 3-4 hour one.

  6. Lemons says:

    I would say this is fine. Live your life and deal with the consequences…Unfortunately, others have to deal with them too.

    I’m sure that staff was hired for the party and the 100+ partygoers will be out and about around hundreds, making thousands of other people.

    They expect us to stay inside so that we can keep working, but they want the privilege of partying while putting us at risk. The poors are stupid for indulging in the same activities, but Kendall is “just having fun and living her life.”

    • smcollins says:

      Agreed. The double standard between the haves and the have-nots never ceases to amaze me. I don’t take issue with people “living their lives” either, but that’s not what this is. This is people showing an utter lack of regard for others’ health & well-being because they’re selfish, self-centered assholes. Coming from this family it’s unfortunately not surprising, it’s completely “on brand”.

      • Lemons says:

        Totally on brand. And it’s maddening because they have the means to just stay home. But they can’t do it…None of them have “essential jobs” where they need to be present anywhere…At this point, they don’t even need teams around them.

  7. josephine says:

    They’re not doing the best that they can, they’re not even remotely close to that. Decent human beings wouldn’t make a living shilling crap that no one needs, shilling crap that plays off of women’s insecurities. Sorry, but I find these people the lowest of the low. They have every privilege and advantage in the world, and had it since birth, but they use that only to make more money. They treat people poorly, have sham marriages. They have done no good in the world and in fact make it a worse place in my opinion.

  8. Sarah says:

    The four of them in the sunglasses I’m struggling to put names to surgically altered bodies. I also originally read the whole Kendall birthday story as ‘Kylie’ and only realised my mistake in the comments. None of them look particularly human at this point.

    This whole things is foolish and bad. Bad optics, bad messaging, bad for the guy trying not to be blown on when Kendall does her birthday candles. They are just bad people with no clue about the rest of the world. Ugh.

  9. Lightpurple says:

    Do the staff and their family members get to live their lives too?

    How about living your lives in your home with a homemade birthday cake or one ordered in instead of exposing innocent people to your germs?

  10. Pamspam says:

    The vulgarity is astounding.

  11. Heylee says:

    I know that in the Hamptons this summer rich people hired doctors for their parties. Guests were administered tests in their cars and waited in their cars for test results. I wonder if that’s what happened here?

    Before the Rose Garden super spreader I know guests were tested and waited in a room or one of several rooms.

    Rapid tests have one of the highest false negative rates. Also, you can be infected and contagious and still test negative because of the way these tests work.

    • Chip says:

      My coworker didn’t get a positive result until her 3rd test! She knew she’d been exposed and was symptomatic but tested negative the first 2 times. Luckily, she quarantined anyway!

      • Nana says:

        Good for your friend for being persistent! Thankfully so many people are so careful and considerate.

        Also, re Rose Garden event, wonder what’ll come out of the election night party at the WH? That looked even worse than the rose garden – closely packed, no masks in sight, lots of drinking…. They really don’t care. Those poor staff who had to wait on those parasites, the poor drivers who drove them home, the poor staff at their households and retail and other workers who’ll have to serve them in the coming days, never knowing they flouted the rules in such a selfish manner only a few nights before.

  12. Porter says:

    See, this is my problem with excessive wealth. It insulates people from consequences and from reality itself. It creates a sense of entitlement that is beyond all reasonable proportion and that hurts people. Nobody in this family (except maybe Robert Kardashian, sr.) earned their lifestyle. You can’t tell me that reality tv, makeup lines, shapewear, and porn mean you deserve so much more money than say, a teacher. It is grotesque and it is wrong.

    Maybe they sincerely believe they’re doing the right thing (or trying to), but wealth corrupts even the well-intentioned. It gives people a totally warped sense of importance. They have no idea what’s happening outside their tightly controlled, gilded bubble.

  13. HoofRat says:

    How nice that they can live their lives. 250,000 Americans no longer have that option.

  14. Vava says:

    Kris Jenner looks like Ghilane Maxwell in that photo.

  15. Chip says:

    I have 2 very sad kids who can’t go to school because adults won’t stop having parties, going to bars, and “living their lives”.

    F them and everyone else who’s prioritizing parties over the well being of the community

  16. Turtledove says:

    I can understand for sure WHY anyone would WANT to celebrate their 25th or 40th. But I mean, there are a lot of things I want right now too, and it just isn’t going to happen.

    My 10 year old had a Zoom Birthday party this year, ten is a big deal and she is an actual child, and i think she handled it a lot better than these spoiled, entitled brats did. This whole statement of Kris Jenner saying all they can do is “live their lives”? No, actually, if your lives involve the potential spread of a virus jut so you can have another party, you really shouldn’t be doing it. it is so frustrating to be in a situation where many people are losing so much, while others act like nothing is happening.

  17. MaryContrary says:

    I haven’t seen my parents in almost a year. They’re in their 80s, live on the opposite coast. My oldest daughter graduated from college in May “virtually”, my other kids are in their bedrooms online doing school, not seeing their friends, our birthdays have all been celebrated at home, with just us, the numbers of cases are skyrocketing. I want to say “FU” to these selfish a-holes who are just continuing to “live their lives” spreading covid while the rest of us hunker down and try and survive.

  18. Murphy says:

    She didn’t wear a “f you” t-shirt Kris, she knowingly and arrogantly ignored health guidelines during a global pandemic that has devastated the planet. Those lame “different opinion” words are just trash.

  19. ME says:

    They don’t care about anyone but themselves. Poor them, the pandemic has been “so hard” on them. Yeah right. They have huge mansions with full staff to cater to their every need. They don’t have to leave their house for work or groceries. They can chill at home until the entire pandemic is over. But nope. They can’t handle not having all the attention on them. Kim and the Klan used to use nudie pics for attention. That doesn’t work anymore. Now they flaunt their undeserving wealth in our faces 24/7 just to get reactions and then call us all “jealous”.

  20. HeatherC says:

    As long as it gets them publicity, PMK doesn’t care if they roll in a vat of smallpox.

  21. Jules says:

    This is the 2020 version of “let them eat cake”. But we know what happened to Marie Antoinette, this is the beginning of the end of this trash family.

  22. Juju says:

    “We live our lives, trying to be just really good people,”

    Good people don’t have huge parties right now. If you must celebrate, why not with a handful of people?

  23. grabbyhands says:

    As someone on another site said “The outrage is the point”.

    These famewhore grifters know exactly what they’re doing and they know that no matter what, people will always defend them and follow what they do. They really, really don’t care.

  24. Amelie says:

    The rapid test results are known to have a high false negative rate. People will most likely get sick from her party. Maybe not right away but in a few weeks time someone who attended that party will come out and admit they got the virus from attending that party. I wrote off the Kardashians a long time ago and haven’t watched their show in years and I’m not regretting that decision. They continue to prove they are selfish and vapid and don’t care about the consequences. They just want to party and hold their lavish unnecessary celebrations no matter the cost.

    This year for Thanksgiving my family is most likely skipping the extended family dinner. My aunt who usually hosts it was going to keep it small but rates here in the Northeast are rising. My aunt’s mother is constantly breaking the quarantine rules (she is 80+) and one of her nephews was in the hospital recently due to the virus (so he supposedly has antibodies but we know those mean nothing). So we don’t trust her extended family. Even if we did get tested for the virus the week of, everybody else is going to want to get tested the week of Thanksgiving as well which will delay the test results. Plus the logistics of traveling this year are going to be a nightmare since our relatives moved two hours away. So it sucks but it will probably just be me, my parents, and my sister and that’s it.

  25. holly hobby says:

    Between this and Courtney’s (I refuse to use that mispelling Chris came up with) mask causes cancer statements, I could have sworn this family is full of MAGATs with the top one being married into the family (he too shall not be named).

  26. Kristen says:

    Except that this kind of thing is the reason that people are dying and literally cannot live their lives any longer. Even if they could be 100% certain that no one at the party was infected, a lot of people will see this and think that if it’s fine for the Kardashians to have a giant party, it’s fine for them.

    Violating state law and breaking 12856987340 ethical standards to have a Halloween party is the exact opposite of doing the best you can.

    Trump voter says what?

  28. SpencerAuLait says:

    Both celebrations were unnecessary,vapid and seemingly unsafe. I understand the desire to celebrate milestones in our lives but couldn’t it wait?? I see no problem in throwing an extravagant 41 / 26 year old bday when the pandemic is over. With all of their money and privilege they even could have had a wonderful social distant celebration with family / household members only that would have been more than most of us could ever afford or dream of. SMH

  29. Nibbi says:

    wow, so bc they can afford to test every 5 seconds (although, hahaaaaha duh, the rapid-result tests tend not to be as reliable AND one often needs a couple of days after infection for viral levels to be high enough to show up on tests) – the actual public health rules studied by experts and put in place by public officials magically don’t apply to them?
    and. AND!! . given that young people tend to be the biggest assholes in this pandemic, paying the least heed to the warnings and recommendations and less likely to wear masks etc etc etc bc less likely to drop dead and die themselves (who gives AF about grandma or someone in the proximity with handicapped immunity for whatever reason, amiright?) – it’s not like these useless, vapid, culture-draining “influencers” could actually have anything POSITIVE to do for society like, at the very least, set a good example ?!!!
    they’re just detestable and gross. it makes me think of Trump, really: just when you think they can’t go any lower, they find new ways to be shameless

  30. The Recluse says:

    Can these people just fade away into obscurity now?

  31. Mar says:

    Yuck. That last picture is gross. Kendalls torso looks abnormally long, Kim looks like plastic cheese and Khloe nose. Kourtney is the only one that looks good.
