Kim Kardashian instantaneously became a household name in 2006 when a sex tape she made with then-boyfriend Ray J wound up on the internet and 11 years later, momager Kris Jenner is still insisting the videos release was devastating.
The 61 -year-old sat down with The Hollywood Reporter where she described the incident as one of the most horrific things that we, as a family, went through. However, she also observes it offensive when people still say the videos release was an effort to quickly attract publicity.
Of course its nonsense, she told. You know, haters are gonna dislike. People are gonna come up with the most ridiculous things.
According to Jenner, the family was just too busy working on several projects. For starters, Jenner was managing then-husband Bruce Jenners career, as well as operating childrens clothing store Smooch with daughter Kourtney. In addition, Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe were running the clothing store Dash next door. Kim was also working as a stylist/ closet organizer whose clients included hotel heiress Paris Hilton.
Jenner added shes used to bullies, especially after the success of the familys made reality Tv series, Maintaining Up With the Kardashians, which is currently in its 13 th season and lately aired its 195 th episode.
Im a lot softer than you would imagine, she explained. It stings sometimes when somebody tells, Youre so fat, or Youre too old to be on social media, or You look awful in that outfit like, such silly, stupid things. Youre going, Really? Ill call up Kim and go, Do I seem that bad in that scene? Do I seem fat?
“But I suppose the most hurtful thing is when people will say, Oh, youre only managing your children youre getting fund from your children or your family or whatever. Im thinking, Well, hell yeah! I mean, Im trying to create a business here, and nobody has their best interest like I do. We all love working together and we love our situation. Why dont you go worry about your own situation and run get a job yourself?
While dealing with critics is something the family continues to tackle, Jenner is still trying to make sense of it all as they chronicle their lives in front of cameras willingly.
Theres definitely a lot of bullies out there the internet is a crazy place, she said. Theres a lot of really miserable, unhappy, terrified, angry, bitter, nasty people out there that dont have undertakings or are hopeless or depressed and sad, and they can be a big, fat, important bully by going online and typing a really ugly statement to someone else that they’ve never even met before, that has impressions and a heart. And I thought, ‘Wow, “whats happened to” merely you know, ‘give peace a chance’? What happened to the ‘6 0s ?! ‘ I’m from a different generation I’m, like, vintage.”
