Kris Jenner is fuming over Today Show 9/11 scandal: Kim Kardashian compares her marriage to cancer

Kris Jenner's 'Today Show' interview on 9/11

On Monday, the world remembered the tragedy of 9/11 and while all the other morning talk shows chose to share their sentiments by airing a national moment of silence in honor of those lost, the Today Show aired something else — a Kris Jenner interview about her breast implants and reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Now that the nation is in an uproar over the incident, Kris Jenner is furious that she’s stuck in the middle.

“Kris is a big supporter of the troops and she’s very upset about this,” a source tells Radar Online. “She had absolutely nothing to do with the decision to skip the national moment of silence on 9/11 and suddenly she’s in the middle of it and it’s her face being shown on TV while it’s being discussed.”

It’s kind of strange that she’s not issued an official public statement, but according to the source “She isn’t saying so publicly but she is furious. She’s angry the show put her in this position.” Hmmm, wonder who the source was?

The fact that Kris had anything to do with the Today Show is’s line-up unfortunately not helping her case much as her face is being plastered everywhere with headlines such as “TODAY Skips 9/11 Moment Of Silence For Kris Jenner Interview” and “‘Today’ show airs Kardashian mom, skips 9/11 moment.”

“She had no idea that she was speaking during the moment of silence,” the source adds. “She has always been such a strong supporter of the troops and now she’s caught in this mess and it’s NBC’s fault, not hers.”

As if that weren’t enough controversy for the Kardashian family, Kim is feeling the heat as well after comparing what many call a fake marriage to having a fatal disease. During an interview with Britain’s The Guardian, Kim put her foot in her mouth in a big way when trying to explain her decision to air her wedding on television.

“We had done filming our season at that point, so we decided to film for the wedding. And that was a decision that [ex-husband Kris Humphries] and I made together,” Kim tells the interviewer. “But I think that, with any decisions in life, like, I spoke to a girl today who had cancer and we were talking about how this is such a hard thing for her, but it taught her a big lesson on who her friends are and so much about life. She’s 18. And I was like, that’s how I feel.”

Right.. your 72-day marriage made for TV is just like cancer. She should stick to reality TV and home-made videos… and tweeting bikini photos of herself. Even though she wasn’t really saying her marriage and divorce was just like cancer, comparing her personal struggles and growth to those of a cancer patient is incredibly myopic.

The Guardian interview is actually pretty interesting. She defends her “brand,” and reality TV show. The obvious point here is: love her, hate her, or just be annoyed by her, enough people “buy in” to her an her family to keep them relevant and successful. Not everyone can do that with a reality show, though many, many have tried, and still many more just want to be given the chance.

On why she deserves fame:

“When I hear people say [what are you famous for?], I want to say, what are you talking about?” she says slowly, her eyes wide as a bushbaby’s. “I have a hit TV show. We’ve shot more episodes than I Love Lucy! We’ve been on the air longer than The Andy Griffith Show! I mean, these are iconic shows, so it blows my mind when people say that.”

On her talents:

“What is my talent?” She cocks her head to one side. “Well, a bear can juggle and stand on a ball and he’s talented, but he’s not famous. Do you know what I mean?”

  • Why does the source keep mentioning how much she supports troops? What the hell does that have to do with 9/11? That was the wrong day to go into nyc and do a vapid interview and she should have passed on it. She can’t blame it entirely on NBC.

    Hmmmm…. and The Today Show wonders why their rates are so bad….& furthermore 9/11 moment of silence was for the victims of 9/11 not our troops …. Don’t get me wrong God Bless our Troops & their families…

  • jen

    now im not a kim supporter at all, but i honestly think what she said about her marriage and the girl with cancer was just worded wrong and she didnt mean for it to sound the way it came out. she wasnt comparing her marriage to cancer she was comparing the bad choice she made of airing her wedding and then looking back now and saying it was a lesson, like how the girl with cancer looks at her hardships and calls them her lessons.

    • Ashley

      Agreed. This article is really mean spirited and harsh. Its especially surprising considering how supportive this site is of the teen moms. And how willing they are to give them the benefit of the doubt. Disapointing.

  • pat

    Bla Bla Bla, everyone hates them, meanwhile millions watch their show. I don’t understand that, and millions buy their products, as long as people watch and buy their products, they aren’t going away. Neither is Farrah, everyone hates her, meanwhile her book is on the New York Times best seller list, that is no easy feat but yet she made it. How do you explain these facts?

    That whole family is disgusting…where’s a direct flight back to Armenia when you need one?! Geez…one of her daughters does nothing but stuff her face, the other does nothing but stuff every orifice with any pen!s from any black male with a pulse and capability of an erection; the others nobody gives a damn about…every single incident that has their name involved is completely 100% about them – this is worse than the days when Anna Nicole had her own reality show.

  • Piper

    This women is so self absorb .she couldn’t of taken the intuitive to remind the viewers to please take a moment of silence or say thank you to a soldier ..she was very well just aware of what the date was too.. 9/11 is a unfortunate iconic date that should never of happened ,however as a American we ALL should pay our respects.

  • dumb

    The bear is more talented. That’s what you mean.

  • Guest92

    Whats the big deal. How long are you Americans going to complain because NBC didn’t stop for a moment of silence at the exact time you wanted them to.
    As long as they took the time out of the day to acknowledge what happened 11 years ago that’s all the matters.
    R.I.P to all the people from all the different countries that died that day in 2001

  • Angie

    They’re swine. Every single one of them. I can’t believe these people actually exist.

  • tab

    kimmy kakes is getting dumber by the day. she needs to stop opening her mouth. what a moron.

  • Vanessa

    I can not stand them! They all need to go away!

  • Candace

    People with no lives or pathetic lives only watch that shyt and other reality shows with fake people in. TV and life in general have gone downhill substantially through time, especially plummeting when reality shows started. There’s nothing real about them, they just strut their stuff to show off and get attention. More cases of obesity/obesity related deaths through the years as well. Hmm, don’t tell me that’s a coincidence.

  • ???

    Bwahahahaha. KUwtK has aired 85 episodes
    I Love Lucy aired 181 episodes
    The Andy Griffith Show had 249 episodes.

  • Isn’t she famous cuz she made a sex tape with Ray J???

  • Kim kardashian says her other ex husband forced her to get plastic surgery(breast implants and liposuction. Kim kardashian tries to say that she is out there to make women embrase their curves when hers aren’t even real. natural curvacious women have a bit of fat in their stomach to which is only natural, kim got hers liposuctioned away. She isnt a role model for curvy girl shes just another barbie.

  • EX husband? They”re still married. Cancer? she is a moral cancer herself. now that she”s pregnant she”s becoming a Sainte all of a sudden.
