Jenner confirms talk show test

Kris Jenner

Kris Jenner has confirmed reports she has landed her own talk show.

The Kardashian-Jenner family matriarch has managed the careers of her famous children Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Rob, Kendall and Kylie for years.

The family catapulted to fame with their US reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

But Kris says she's ready to step into the spotlight with a solo venture, confirming long-held rumours she is branching out with her own programming.

Kris said on Tuesday her eponymous show will debut with a preview episode on Fox network this summer.

"This is something I have wanted to do all my life so it's definitely a dream come true," she said in a statement, adding, "I can't wait for this new adventure to begin and look forward to working alongside Twentieth Television and the Fox Television Stations."

Entertainment Tonight reports Kris will begin as a one-hour entertainment talk show.

A press release issued by Fox indicates the show will "offer daytime viewers a daily jolt of celebrity guests, fashion and beauty trends; plus a mix of lifestyle topics - all through the distinctive and unpredictable perspective of Kris Jenner."

Kris will be filmed in Los Angeles.

Network executives said they hope the show "will bring a cool blast of fun and high energy to summer television".

The deal follows Khloe Kardashian's new stint as co-host of America's The X Factor.

The reality star is a presenter alongside veteran master of ceremonies Mario Lopez on Simon Cowell's TV talent show, which also airs on Fox.

The more you resist, the more they'll persist. Are you already in a relationship? Start pursuing a cherished dream. Fulfilling your heart's desire will make you a better partner and friend. Dwelling on what might have been will just make you bitter. Take a risk. It's better to try and fail than be paralysed by fear.More
