Kris Jenner is pulling out all the stops to get people talking about her new show, Kris, in an effort to boost ratings. Jenner didn’t have to look much farther than her daughter Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby, North West.
Kim K and West were flooded with magazine offers for the exclusive first photo of North, including a reported offer of $3 million to $4 million from an Australian magazine. It was initially believed that momager Jenner was pulling her hair out at the thought of passing on $3 million, but it appears she had bigger plans all along.
Last month she played coy with NBC’s Matt Lauer when speaking of the big reveal,
“Well, while that’s ambitious, that would be fun, I think you’re just going to have to wait and see and tune in because I’m not sure exactly what’s going to happen.”
According to Radar Online, Kardashian will indeed give her mother the first exclusive to help her struggling show.
An unnamed source revealed to the publication that West’s girlfriend also had the safety of their daughter in mind.
“Right now, she is worried about the safety of Nori because paps are throwing stuff over the walls, yelling awful things at her. She feels threatened and scared right now that if they don’t just let everyone see the kid, you all are gonna go cray-cray on her when she does finally emerge.”
North is expected to make her debut on Kris this Friday in a photograph that shows her lying on a comforter in a “very expensive” onesie. Friday is the last air date of Kris before Fox executives decide to give the show a full run. Explosive ratings will more than sway their decision.
Nori’s father, who will reportedly get the final say over the segment, is also considering a monthly high fashion magazine for a full-on editorial of his daughter.
An insider told Radar Online:
“He wants it to be shot by someone like Mario [Testino] and have that art quality.”
Whether Kim K and her beau decide to pass on a big pay day, millions of hungry fans will await their small glimpse of North on Friday on Kris, and that’s what matters.
