It's not easy being a Kardashian (or a Jenner either, apparently). Being the most famous family on reality TV comes with its downfalls, and as Kris Jenner revealed in a new interview, it's the children she worries about most.
During The Hollywood Reporter's Reality TV Roundtable this week, the grandmother of six got real about the effects of fame on her large family, explaining that she doesn't worry as much about her kids dealing with hate; by now, they're veterans of the reality TV industry and know how to handle a little backlash.
"Kim leads the pack, and she's the queen of thick skin. She counsels everybody else," Kris said. "So if something happens in the family, she's the first one you call. ‘What should I do? How should I handle this?"'
"It's my grandchildren who I worry about because I have six of them; the oldest just turned seven, and my youngest is six months old, and they don't have a choice," she continued. "And I worry, I do, because it is such a bullying environment."
Unfortunately, that's the price of fame for many, especially when a family is as open as the Kardashians are.
"We decided as a family that if we're going to do this, we would just show everything. And one of the best decisions I made not only as a producer of the show but as one of the stars of the show was to say, 'We're not going to remove anything.' With that philosophy, I told the kids, 'Don't get on the internet,'" Kris said. "Ryan Seacrest, my producing partner, had told Kim about this little thing called Twitter, which she might be interested in. There wasn't Instagram or Snapchat or any of this other stuff then. Now, it's so heightened and, you know, haters are gonna hate. You expect it now."
Sad, but true.
