Kris Jenner has bribed a TV critic for better reviews.
Kris Jenner, the producer of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, has launched her own TV talk show simply titled Kris. Thus far, the show has been getting some pretty horrible reviews, and Kris Jenner is apparently willing to do anything to save the show … except make it more entertaining.
One TV critic in particular has been the target of a bribe from the host of Kris. The New York Post’s Linda Stasi has gone on record as saying that Kris Jenner’s TV talk show is “so horrible it should come with a hazard warning … [Kris Jenner] comes across as a spoiled, vacuous woman with nothing to say of any interest, importance or humor.”
Of course, being the producer of the super-popular Keeping Up With The Kardashians has left Kris Jenner with a pretty thick skin, as the 57 year old TV star doesn’t seem to be harboring any hard feelings toward TV critic Linda Stasi. In fact, the harsh review led to Kris Jenner sending the TV critic gifts including a dozen magnolia cupcakes and a sterling silver Tiffany pen worth $325, along with a note. Said note stated that Kris Jenner loves the TV critic’s reviews, and hopes that her next review, written with the enclosed pen, will be better.
TV critic Linda Stasi has blatantly stated that she can’t be bought, but of course she accepted the gift. Kris Jenner may just need to try something new to get better reviews. She has replied to the gift as well, saying that Kris Jenner needs to be more entertaining and interesting on her TV talk show, and suggests possibly doing a better job with her bribes. She says the likelihood of being bought enough to change her reviews of the TV talk show is the same as “the Pope turning Jewish.”
