Kris Jenner’s Bio (Ethnicity)
Kris Jenner was born Kristen Mary Houghton on the 5th of November 1995. She was born in San Diego, California and moved around only a little before ending up back at her birthplace. She went to Longfellow Elementary School and later graduated from Claremont High School.
When she was younger, Kris Jenner developed a cancerous brain tumour. Luckily for her and her family, the cancer did not spread and she underwent a surgery after which she was given a clean bill of health. After leaving high school, Kris had little interest in furthering her education, preferring instead to settle down and become a wife and a mother.
Her decision to tow the family path would still lead her to find a lot of success. She met with Ryan Seacrest, a producer in 2007 and the hit reality TV show Keeping up with the Kardashians was born. In it, Kris Jenner and her family are shown living their lives which has been characterized as that of celebrity entrepreneurs. The show has birthed spin-offs like Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Khloé and Lamar and Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, which was initially Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami. Her youngest daughters also have their own similar spin-offs.
Kris Jenner first described herself as a momager and then a lot of people began to follow suit. She manages the varied business ventures and projects of her biological children which stretch from fragrance lines to autobiographies. She attempted debuting her own daytime TV talk show in 2013 but the program was not renewed after she failed to attract enough of an audience.
Kris Jenner’s Family, Sister
Her father is Robert Houghton and he was an aircraft engineer. He had one more daughter named Karen with his wife before the two got divorced in 1962. Their divorce would move Kris Jenner’s mom to sell their home and move the rest of the family to Clairemont, California.
Her mother got married again to a man called Harry Shannon and the family moved again to Oxnard, California before Shannon’s business partner cheated him and ran off with all the company’s money, forcing them to move back to San Diego.
Her Husband, Is Kris Jenner Dating? Boyfriend, Affair
Kris Jenner has been twice married and twice divorced. Her first marriage was to a successful high-powered attorney named Robert Kardashian. The two were married on the 8th of July 1978. robert Kardashian was the best friend of O.J Simpson, the athlete and actor who was at the centre of one of the most dramatic murder trials of the decade. Kris Jenner was, therefore, soon close to O.J Simpson’s wife Nicole Brown Simpson and was devastated by the death of her friend in the 1990s and also that her husband O.J Simpson was being accused of murdering her. Robert Kardashian gained national prominence in the course of the case and he later died in 2003 of oesophagal cancer. Before his death and even before the full attention that the case drew to the family, the two got divorced in 1991. Their marriage was blessed with four children named Robert Jr., Kourtney, Kim and Khloé.
Almost immediately after her divorce from Robert Kardashian was final, Kris Jenner got married to the former Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete, Bruce Jenner. Bruce already had four children from his two previous marriages – Burt, Casey, Brandon and Brody Jenner – who Kris Jenner became a stepmother to. They, however, also had two children of their own who they named Kendall and Kylie. Kris Jenner took on the role of Bruce’s manager when she married him. She negotiated his deals and promoted his career as a racecar driver. The two were, however, having problems in their marriage and separated in June 2013 before finalizing their divorce in December 2014.
In 2015, Bruce Jenner came out as transgender and officially changed his name to Caitlyn, beginning to identify as female.
The beautiful momager has never been outed in an affair while dating someone else and seeing as her family is placed under so much public scrutiny that would be an easy thing to do. After her second divorce, she began in 2014 to date an entertainment businessman named Corey Gamble who is younger than her by 25 years.
Kris Jenner stands at a height of 5 ft 6 in and weighs 63 kg or 139 pounds. She is a self-proclaimed foodie and as she enjoys food so much, keeping in shape sometimes poses a problem, still, at her age, Kris Jenner looks very fit. She told Heat Magazine in 2014 that she gets up at 4:30 am to exercise.
