Far be it from Kris Jenner to slam something (or someone) that appears to make her son so happy.
Rob Kardashian’s relationship with Blac Chyna hasn’t exactly been popular among the Kardashian-Jenner set, but when Kris spoke with the Kyle and Jackie O Show on Wednesday, she only had (luke)warm things to say about Blac Chyna.
“I haven’t really seen her that much and I don’t know her as well as everyone else but she seems like a really nice girl and I just haven’t been around her too much.”
True, it’s not exactly a ringing endorsement for the Instagram-model-turned-Kardashian-girlfriend, but Jenner doesn’t really say anything too negative about Blac Chyna, either. In fact, if anything, the famous momager gives Blac props for making Rob so happy.
“But you know, he’s been very, very happy lately and I think he’s in a really good place,” Jenner told the Australian radio show, which airs on KISS FM 1065. “I don’t know too much about their relationship.”

Jenner went on to say that Rob Kardashian is doing “really, really well,” and that he has been working to improve his health since his health scare in December. At the time, Rob Kardashian was admitted to the hospital and diagnosed with diabetes.
Since he began dating Blac Chyna, Rob’s happiness has been discussed in the media at great length. Previous to his relationship with the former exotic dancer, Rob had largely retreated from the public spotlight. Rumors about his ballooning weight and his struggles with depression flew around the internet completely unchecked.
But since he began dating Chyna, all that has changed. Rob Kardashian has been seen in public rather frequently as of late, and it’s obvious that he’s working to improve his health. He’s visibly slimmed down and is said to have lost up to 50 pounds.
“He feels, you know, much better about himself,” Kris Jenner told the Kyle and Jackie O Show. “He’s trying to just get healthy and get in shape. He’s been working on a few projects.”
Some of those projects include a new sock line and a rumored reality TV show with his new love interest — though the rumors of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians spin-off featuring Rob and Blac have not been confirmed.

If Rob and Blac were to shoot their own show, the show would be sure to cause a stir amongst the first family of reality TV — and the show surely would be filled with drama. Rob’s relationship with Blac has been met with resistance and criticism from his sisters, who consider Blac Chyna a Kardashian-Jenner family nemesis.
Blac Chyna and Kim Kardashian used to be friends, but that all changed when Kylie Jenner began dating Tyga, who is Blac Chyna’s ex-fiancé and the father of her son. Since Kylie and Tyga hooked up, Blac Chyna has actively attacked the 18-year-old KUWTK star via social media and many occasions. Blac even claims that Jenner and Tyga began hooking up before Kylie was a legal adult and before Chyna and Tyga split.
Kylie’s sisters have closed ranks and chosen to side with their sister. The initial backlash to the relationship was reportedly immediate and severe, though the opposition to Rob Kardashian-Blac Chyna hookup seems to have relaxed with time.
If Kris Jenner’s comments are any indication, it seems as if the Kardashian-Jenner women may be more concerned with Rob’s health and happiness, rather than concerning themselves with the relationship of their brother.
What do you think of the comments Kris Jenner made about the Blac Chyna-Rob Kardashian relationship? Do you think she sounds as if she approves? Why or why not?
