When Kris Jenner stopped by satellite radio station Shade 45’s Sway in the Morning show today (to promote her book, Kris Jenner … And All Things Kardashian), she did her best to set the record straight about daughter Kim Kardashian’s 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries. She used her best soothing, motherly voice, but that didn’t hide the protective mama-bear tone of her words.
“The misconception that’s so annoying in the media and the press is that the wedding was a sham and she did it for the money,” Kris told Sway. “Kim didn’t make any money off of this wedding. She didn’t make 5 cents off of the wedding. She spent millions of dollars of her own money on a wedding.”
While several reports have said that Kim and Kris earned about $18 million from the wedding special and stories sold to People, Jenner denies any such payment. “All of us our shooting fees and all that, but it’s not as if we walked away with millions of dollars jingling in our pockets. Absolutely not. The people that write this stuff, it’s absolutely ridiculous. What angers me so much is when people print things and everyone thinks, ‘Oh, that’s a fact.’
“Get your facts straight people before you start judging,” Kris admonished. Regardless of the rumors, she’s confident that Kim will recover from the split like a champ. “I told Kim, ‘You’re not the first person who’s ever gotten a divorce. And guess what? You’re not going to be the last.’ ”
As for her soon-to-be-ex-son-in-law, Jenner was kind to the other Kris. “He’s a great guy. I like Kris, and he’s a good person, but they needed to do what they needed to do, so we’ll see what happens.”
