In recent episodes of The Kardashians on Hulu, the clan matriarch, Kris Jenner, has been forthcoming about her guilt for thrusting her children into the harsh glare of public attention. Kris, famously known for masterminding her family’s rise to stardom, has spoken openly about her regret and the “curse” of fame.

It’s a well-known fact that Kris Jenner had dreams of her family basking in the glow of fame and worked relentlessly to turn this dream into reality. In her 2011 memoir, she unapologetically revealed that her dream was to have a famous family and her own TV show, a dream she sought to fulfill through her children, Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, Rob, Kendall, and Kylie. The pursuit of this dream led to the family being signed up for E!’s reality series, Keeping Up With The Kardashians (KUWTK), in 2007, despite Kourtney’s reservations about the potential implications of global attention.

Throughout KUWTK’s tenure, Kris kept the cameras rolling, allowing the world to watch the trials and tribulations of the Kardashians and Jenners, including some deeply personal moments. But this constant exposure had led to backlash from the public, scrutiny that has at times been overwhelmingly harsh, particularly for Kendall and Kylie, who were children when the show started.

Kris Jenner, who has frequently been rebuked for exploiting her children for fame, recently expressed remorse over her decisions. During an emotional conversation with her daughter Kim, Kris confessed to the guilt she feels for the heavy burden of fame that her family has had to bear, describing it as a “struggle.”

In her confessional, she stated: “We’ve built this amazing life for ourselves, and sometimes, I feel like it can be a curse. Sometimes, I feel like I’ve helped build something that can also be a burden… I feel bad that I’ve brought this element to our lives. It weighs heavy on my heart a lot.”

Despite these revelations, Kim defended her mother, acknowledging the hardships of fame but insisting that it was part of their journey. “Life is about hardships and how you get through them, and we know how to get through them…Thank God we have each other. Thank God we have that support system,” Kim expressed.

Though Kris feels that the family’s fame has often attracted negative attention and blame, Kim maintained a resilient stance, declaring that the Kardashians “don’t stoop to anyone’s level and we get through things, and we get through them together.”

As Kris and Kim delved further into the challenges of their public lives, they underscored that being under constant scrutiny has been difficult but that their bond as a family has been their saving grace. “It’s our saving grace that we get to live life with one another,” Jenner said. “That’s a gift. I hope you appreciate that.”

Through these candid discussions, the Kardashian-Jenners have offered an intimate glimpse into the paradox of their fame – a testament to their ability to navigate the whirlwind of public life while acknowledging the emotional toll it can take. It’s clear that Kris Jenner is grappling with the double-edged sword of the celebrity lifestyle she sought for her family and the consequences that have unfolded over the years.

However, the family’s resilience, strength, and unity continue to shine through, reminding viewers that beneath the glitz and glamour, they remain, first and foremost, a family.
