Kris Jenner will do anything to keep the Kardashian empire from crumbling!
In fact, her sister, Karen Houghton, exclusively tells In Touch about Kris’ latest attempt to stay relevant: ‘dating’ Bachelor Ben Flajnik.
“I texted her about Ben the Bachelor the other day and asked if they were dating,” Kris’ sister shares with In Touch, “She said it was more of a business deal.”
Kris Jenner Forced Khloé Kardashian to Exercise — at Just 4-Years-Old!
A family insider tells the mag: “Everyone in her circle is joking that she’s going to leak a sex tape with Ben to get more attention. It worked for Kim — and no one is putting it past Kris!”
The Kardashian brand is not doing as well as it once was — Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which boasted 5 million viewers in 2010, ended season 8 in 2013 with only 2 million.
Karen says when Kris feels like she is losing control, “she works and she exercises. She gets in the office and she sits at that computer at 5 a.m. and she tries to make things happen.”
Karen adds her sibling has “lost about 20 pounds. She doesn’t want her money, fame and power to go away.”
Kris was then banking on her talk show to keep her in the spotlight, but now the chat fest has reportedly been axed after abysmal viewership.
“I think it was really important to her. I think she really wanted it to work out,” Karen confesses to In Touch.
