"Momager" and Kardashian family matriarch, Kris Jenner, will get the spotlight turned on her with her upcoming six-week trial stint as a daytime talk show host for Fox's Twentieth Television. The show simply titled, "Kris," will be a one-hour lifestyle show focused on celebrity guests and fashion and beauty topics. Jenner will join the likes of Wendy Williams and fellow reality show star, Bethenny Frankel, who were both picked up for the long haul by Fox after their six-week test runs.
The Kardashian clan has been surprisingly mum on the topic via Twitter but Jenner provided the following statement via a press release from Fox: "This is something I have wanted to do all my life so itís definitely a dream come true!" The 57-year-old will also serve as an executive producer for the show. Meanwhile the rest of the Kardashians will remain in the limelight as the entire family is locked into a three-year deal for seasons seven, eight, and nine of E! Network's "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" in April 2012.
"Kris" is slated to air this summer on Fox-owned stations in select markets.
