Every talk show host has various strengths and weaknesses. Some are great at interacting with the audience. Others are great at asking the right questions to celebrity guests or coming up with really informative topics. Kris Jenner really hasn’t been on the air long enough to be graded on a complete set of pros and cons, but, without a doubt, we can say she’s great at having famous family members who can be easily coaxed onto her program, such as Kanye West.
The hip-hop star stopped by the Kris Jenner Show this morning to talk about his new family life with Kris’ daughter Kim Kardashian. During the exchange, he revealed plenty of fun facts including he’s awful at working the car seat, but most importantly to many fans, he finally authorized the release of the first picture of baby North West. She’s that lovely girl in the picture at the top of the article, and to be honest, she’s kind of chubby and adorable.
It might seem like a slam dunk to release the first baby photos of a child on her grandmother’s new talk show, but in truth, the Kardashian/ West/ Jenner family left a lot of money on the table as a favor to Kris. There was so much interest in getting the first picture of the child that Kim actually sent out fake snapshots of other people’s children to some of her friends to see if anyone would leak them, which was a smart move because two of the six actually did. No concrete numbers of what they might have been offered ever emerged, but based on what other stars have gotten, it’s safe to say they could have netted seven figures.
As for the actual interview itself, West was his typical fascinating and conceited self. He tried to be honest and open and even take a few shots at himself, but many of the statements were actually backdoor brags. Take this quote for example, as per The New York Daily News…
Or how about this one, which deals with why he wants to be with Kim…
Regardless of whether he’s apt to pat himself on the back or not, West seems like a devoted father and a caring partner. He clearly does love his family, and I hope he spends the rest of his life happily showing off pictures of that family. If Jenner had it her way, those reveals would all come on her show, but only time will tell whether that’ll happen.
Enthusiastic about Clue, case-of-the-week mysteries, the NBA and cookies at Disney World. Less enthusiastic about the pricing structure of cable, loud noises and Tuesdays.
