Look, I know it may be difficult to take me seriously because I've given the Kris Jenner book 4 stars, but hear me out. It's good. I mean come on - Kris admits to cheating on Robert Kardashian in a scandalous affair with some loser AND gives us intimate details on the whole Nicole Brown Simpson murder!! She even tells us wether or not she thinks O.J. is guilty. In fact, I was shocked that such a huge chunk of this book was about that case and so little was written about Kris' now famous family. ...more

Judge away, but this shit was $3.99 at TJ Maxx and I'm a sucker for a cheap book. She's pretty shameless but whatever she's doing is working, whatever she's selling people are buying and I've been known to get dragged into an ep or two of Keeping up with the Kardashians.

She's pretty candid about her affair and for all her success pretty much credits that as her one failure in life... and losing money on a town home. Her other eye-rolly moment was when everyone was gathered around her before her

One quote from the book says it all: How can I take these 15 minutes of fame and turn it into thirty.

That's all there is to say on the subject.

Even when I thought that this book might get annoying, it actually never did. Kris is very likeable in this book and she is honest about her life and her families'. It never seemed or felt to me like she was bragging about their successes and to be honest I really enjoyed her honesty about the whole OJ Simpson & Nicole Simpson tragedy. I had heard that they were close friends but I did not know how close until reading this book. It must have been very hard for the

Many people think The Kardashians are just famous for being famous, but people don't take into account that they are real people, a real family, with real problems. I believe this book gives a look into Kris Jenners life that not many people know or understand. I like the fact that she doesn't hold back anything and lets the reader into everything that had happened in her life good or bad. She strives to be a great mother, great wife, businesswoman, and a rock for her family and friends. The boo ...more

“Kris Jenner and all things Kardashian” details Kris’s Jenner’s biography and stepping stones to creating the media frenzy currently enjoyed by this family. Kris herself came from a modest family background, her grandmother ran a candle store, and her father left them when she was little. Kris the teenager has a romance with a professional golfer, and gradually gets introduced to Robert Kardashian, a family-oriented lawyer of Armenian descent who fell head over heels for her. Kris doesn’t feel t ...more

I have a love/hate anything Kardashian philosophy. I try to keep up with what's going on in the entertainment world because you never know when I might be on a trivia show and a Kardashian question might come up.

On the one hand, I must say this book was better than Kyle Richards' recent book.

While on the one hand Kris is a real powerhouse, I'm not sure if it's all in a good way. She is a social climber and has done an excellent job at it. Her work ethic seems to have been picked up by some of h

Kris Jenner is the “Momager” to all her kids but is her husband Bruce’s manager as well. Most people today know her from their family show Keeping Up With The Kardashians but there is so much more to her story. How she got to the point she is in today. From where she started with the strong women who influenced her early in life, to her marriage to Robert Kardashian, to her friendships with Nicole and O.J. Simpson, to how she met and married Bruce Jenner. She tells all.

I picked this one up after hearing about it on the premiere episode of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" (yes, I watch that show, and I enjoy it) and hearing about some affair that Kris Jenner had. I didn't know she wrote a book, a few days later I got this from my local library, and honestly, I couldn't put it down.

The book starts off with Kris and her childhood. It spans her adulthood with a pro-golfer boyfriend till she meets Robert Kardashian. Then the book sorta goes to a different tone. I

This was our second book club pick and it made for a ridiculous book club party. I enjoyed reading about Kris's past and her affairs and how she came to meet Robert Kardashian. The biggest chunk of the book focuses on Nicole Brown Simpson and the OJ trial and how it affected her relationship with Robert and her children. That stuff was fascinating, but other than that she's just rambling about her new houses and her success and how everything is just "amaaaazing". Also it's super obvious that Ki ...more

I absolutely loved this memoir. The Kardashians are my guilty pleasure and just love this reality family. This book was not about the glitz and the glam but about Kris' life and the ups and downs she faced. I liked how a good portion of the book focused on her relationship with OJ Simpson and Nicole Brown and about the murder and trial. Definitely interesting. I recommend this book if you're a fan of the Kardashians, even if you're not it's still a good read!

I really enjoyed this book, to a point. I am fascinated by the Kardashians (and my husband think's it's an irrational obsession), so I picked up the book. Kris is a decent writer and I was truly sucked in to learn about her upbringing and how she came to marry Robert Kardashian. It was a great story.

Then there was the information about the OJ/Nicole story. She went into great depth about the deterioration of their relationship and the trial, which I found fascinating as well. I was really excite

I picked this one up from the library this week, and stayed up and read it all in one go, in a couple of hours. Because of only having poor peoples tv, I have only managed to see a few of the shows, when house sitting and watching a Keeping up with the Kardashians marathon. You can't avoid them though, that whole Kardashians are everywhere, magazines, TV and papers.

I didn't expect to like the book, I thought it would be all superficial frothy staff, however it did surprise me. Kris met her first

Okay, this book was amazing. I began reading this with almost no expectations. I adore the Kardashians; I've seen every episode of every one of their TV shows and I'll always defend them against the nay-sayers. I know they've had some very tragic and dramatic backgrounds, but I just wasn't sure if I'd find this book interesting.
Honestly, this was amazing. Kris Jenner has had the most incredible life with some of the most heart-breaking things that can happen to a person. I truly admire all the K

Sooo yes I just rated a Kardashian biography 5 stars haha. I KNOW. When I started it, I almost put it down after a few pages, because I thought the writing style was too simplistic and I was bored, BUT I waited and I was rewarded! It was very interesting to learn about the OJ SImpson case from an insiders perspective, and I feel like Kris is very honest about things. It made me feel connected to the whole family even more, and I think that being so open is part of their magic! Kris has had an in ...more

At first I started to watch the reality show just to get a laugh... at them- not with them. But as the episodes went by it became a guilty pleasure and just like that I was hocked. And as soon as I found out that Kris Jenner had written a book I instantly wanted to read it.

And I must say-
Wow what a strong magnificant woman Kris is! She deserves more credit than she is given. I enjoyed reading the story of her life, all the ups and the downs. She is really honest in this book and that is somethin

I enjoyed this! Self-serving, celebrity-seeking, name-dropping (my best friend, Nicole Simpson, I didn't know *sob*) Kris "wrote" a fun book. I don't watch the Kardashian shows, have never bought a Kardashian product (I borrowed this audio book from the library) and think that the family is more trashy than admirable, BUT you have to admire a woman so driven to succeed that she has made herself, her six children and Bruce/Caitlyn richer and more known/notorious then any of them could have ever d ...more

The Kardashians are definitely my guilty pleasure. I thought this would be a little more juicy, but I enjoyed it for what it was. I didn't really know all of the circumstances of her divorce, and I also didn't realize just how close she was to the Nicole Brown Simpson murder. I knew that her ex was OJ's lawyer (ugh) but I didn't realize that her and Nicole were such close friends. That part of the book was so sad to read.

All in all, a quick way to pass a Saturday afternoon.

Great story about Kris Jenner's life and childhood.
Also talks about the Kardashians and there hit TV show keeping up with the Kardashians.

Yes you can judge me for reading this! This book was interesting because I just got done watching the OJ Simpson show & he was a big part of this book. It was only $1 and I got hooked on it.
I read it to learn more about the O.J. Simpson murder trial and it did not disappoint. Her connection to this horrible crime provided a new perspective on a case that I always found fascinating.

For the sake of an authors hard work and dedication put in developing a book, I refrain from writing my review until I've completed reading it in it's entirety.

That being said, here are my thoughts and feelings about this memoir by Kris Jenner.

Okay so first and foremost, I am a fan of the Kardashian Klan and do enjoy Kris for the most part. That being said, reading this book at times could be extremely annoying as every single sentence I read, I heard Kris' voice narrating her story. That wouldn

I'm not going to lie, I'm kind of disappointed. I thought the book would delve into what makes Kris tick but most of the book is about before her success as a momager. In fact, the chapters on her momager years are so short and felt rushed. Also with such a busy and continuously changing family a lot has changed for the Jenner/Kardashian clan. Caitlyn Jenner, obviously being the most shocking.
I'm a little sad that this book isn't more real in terms of Kris discussing her issues with her childre

All in all I really learned alot from reading this book. Kris covered her life's "defining moments" in pretty good detail up until most recently. It was interesting to learn that when she was younger she could have had her leg amputated. Luckily she didn't have to. When she divorced from Robert Kardashian she took nothing from him. She learned business skills very early on from her grandmother and mother.

I thought the pace of the book was very good. Kris wrote just the right amount for the subje

I found myself taking this out from the library twice because I didn't finish it the first time and I wasn't going to but the Nicole Brown and O.J. insight was actually quite intriguing. I was surprised to find out she was so close with them. A terrible experience for her, for example the day after Nicole was murdered Kris had plans to meet her to discuss something private and crucial...eerily makes you wonder what Nicole was finally ready to say. Events like this make for an extraordinary read. ...more

Everyone I know hates the Kardashians and what they represent (opulent celebritydom). Yet for some reason, people still continue to watch their reality tv show(s). So not for nothing, they are interesting enough (whether we admit it or not) and keep us amused with their lives.

So yes, I will admit that I really enjoyed reading this book. It felt very candid (at least her early life), especially in regards to Kris' marriage and divorce with Robert Kardashian. And oooooooooh OJ Simpson! I had comp

"Kris Jenner… and All Things Kardashian" was an honest insight into Kris Jenner’s personal life ( from her childhood to the age of fifty five). She used her own, personal experiences to prove to the readers that nothing is impossible to achieve as long as there is passion and perseverance. Personally, I loved how detailed she was in every chapter of the book. The amount of details in the book made me live the happy, the sad and the scary moments she experienced throughout her life, especially in ...more
