In Defense of Kris Jenner

th 3

Yes, THAT Kris Jenner …

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m writing a post in defense of the Kardashian matriarch. According to the Huffington Post, Kris took the President to task for some remarks he made about Kanye West and her daughter, Kim Kardashian in which he basically said kids should not be inspired to go on vacations like Kanye West or be concerned with what clothes Kim Kardashian is wearing.

From HuffPo:

On Friday’s episode of her talk show “Kris,” Jenner responded to Obama’s critique of the over-the-top lives of West and Kardashian and the effect they have on today’s youth, when he explained, “Kids weren’t monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success.”

And oh, boy, Jenner was not pleased.

“It’s really great that people aspire to get a great job … but I wasn’t aware that you could only set the bar so high and that we could only dream so big,” Jenner said after she read Obama’s remarks aloud on her show. “I was taught: Dream big, work hard and you could have whatever you wanted.”

She went on to say that Kanye West never takes a vacation. Ever! She also said that Kim is the hardest working woman in show business.

I’ve said this before, and say what you will about Kim Kardashian, but I believe she works overtime on her famewhoring. She wanted to be rich and famous and she figured out a way to make money doing what she loves. I say more power to her!

I also think Kris Jenner has worked very hard to get her family where they are. Everything they have did not simply fall in their laps. They worked for it. They worked very hard for it.

Is it back-breaking, blister-causing work? No. But not all work is.

I have heard Kris Jenner speak in the past about vision boards. I have also heard her speak about meeting with Kim and going over future goals. She encourages her family to “think big” and go for what they want, even if it seems out of reach.

If President Obama was trying to discourage people from dreaming, then shame on him. I think everyone should dream as big as they want to, but they also need to realize that Kanye West, Kim Kardashian and anyone else they aspire to be like, worked very hard to make their dreams a reality.

So yes, I agree with Kris Jenner: Dream Big! Work Hard! Don’t Quit!
