For years, Kris Jenner has been known as the leading matriarch of the Kardashian-Jenner family, but in an upcoming interview with Editorialist, Kim Kardashian says the image isn’t exactly accurate.
According to People, Kardashian posted an excerpt from her upcoming Editorialist interview to her website and her app. In that excerpt, Kim explains that she has taken over for her famous momager.
“It’s so funny, because I’ll hear stories like, ‘Kris Jenner is the puppet master, having all of her kids do this and that,’ and I’m like, ‘If they only knew,’ I’m the one that will be like, ‘Kylie, do this. Kendall, you should do this.'”
It’s true that, in the past, Kim has been filmed giving instruction to Kylie Jenner during Keeping Up With the Kardashians episodes. During a recent episode of KUWTK, for example, Kardashian was seen giving Kylie instructions when it came to participating in Kanye West’s fashion show.

While writing on her website, Kim also went on to say that she’s excited for the world to see the Editorialist interview because it allowed her to talk about the business aspect of her life.
“I love when I get the chance to talk about the business side of my life, because it plays a HUGE role in what I do every day.”
Admittedly, Kardashian’s plethora of business enterprises is growing. In addition to her obvious career as a reality TV star, model, and fashion icon, Kim K also has the Kim Kardashian: Hollywood app, which is a multi-million dollar entity all on its own. She also has two other apps: her personal app and the Kimoji app, which was released at the end of 2015. Want to have a conversation using nothing but images of Kim Kardashian?

Additionally, Kardashian also published her Selfish book, which boasts 448 pages of Kim’s selfies. The book hasn’t received great reviews on Amazon, but rumors of a second selfie book have circulated, anyway. Find out more about Kim’s book in the video below. (Article continues below the video.)
Okay, so not all of Kim Kardashian’s business ventures are successful, as evidenced by her book. Nevertheless, Kardashian wrote on her website that she believes that she is a force in the publishing world — especially when it comes to digital publishing.
“I definitely see the shift from magazine to digital, and that’s exactly what I envision,” the 35-year-old mother of two said when talking about her website. She went on to say that her website grew out of a desire to be the one to publish her own thoughts and opinions.
“I did want my own avenue to tell my story, to show my fashion pics, to offer my beauty tips, my secrets. I was doing so many interviews with so many different magazines, and I would find that it wouldn’t be written right or maybe the product was off or I didn’t feel it was truly representing me.”
Do you think Kim Kardashian really is the “puppet master” of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, or do you think Kris Jenner still has more of a role in the success of her daughters than Kim is willing to indicate? Why or why not?
