In something totally unexpected, I was actually in shock listening to Kris Kardashian this morning on Ryan Seacrest's radio show. For some reason I expected her to come on and be just like Kathy Hilton. Well in addition to not crawling around on the floor looking for coke, Kris also didn't whine like Kathy and had nothing bad to say about "everyday people."
When she first came on I really did think the worst especially when Ryan's annoying co-host did her fake "I miss you and love you thing to Kris." For those of you not in the Los Angeles area, Ryan's co-host is a woman named Ellen who, in her life seems to be most proud of her son which is fantastic, and additionally with being the only person she knows who managed to have sex with her boss and getting him to marry her. Nice. They don't mention whether the boss was married while this was going on and I really don't want to know.
Anyway, back to Kris. She came on to discuss Khloe going to jail for violating her probation. Khloe who admitted to not doing cleanup duty as required and not attending alcohol education classes was sentenced to 30 days in the county jail. Instead of offering a litany of excuses on why Khloe shouldn't have been this or that, Kris basically came out and said my kid screwed up and she has to pay the price. She didn't do what she was supposed to do and that's that. She also added that Khloe is 24 going on 15 sometimes and that it gets tiring after awhile to deal with that.
Kris also said that this should serve as a lesson that no matter how much money you have, or what privilege you grew up in, people are still idiots and that you get what you deserve.
There was no hemming or hawing or trying to rationalize. She came out and said what needed to be said. She made no apologies for Khloe and I have to admire that. Too many times in recent months with the Hogans and the Hiltons it has just been a whine fest. Didn't get it here and have to say I appreciate it. Not going to get me to like her kids, but I can like Kris a little.
