Kris Jenner Continues Media Blitz, Set to Appear on 'The View'
On the heels of Kim Kardashian's divorce news, Kris Jenner will be appearing on ABC's daytime talker The View on Wednesday, it was announced by Barbara Walters.
The appearance comes at an opportune time for Jenner, who serves as Kardashian's manager in addition to being her mother, and who will also be stopping by NBC's Today that day to discuss her daughter's 72-day marriage to professional basketball player Kris Humphries. Jenner will be promoting her book Kris Jenner ... and All Things Kardashian, which was officially in stores Tuesday, during her View appearance.
Following Jenner's appearance on the ABC talker, Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Kardashian will stop by Wednesday, Nov. 16.
According to her official website, Jenner has scheduled several book signings: two on Thursday, one in Calabasas on Nov. 12 and another in Los Angeles on Nov. 15. On Wednesday, Jenner will be holding a launch party at The Darby in New York City. On Monday evening, Jenner appeared on QVC to tout her clothing line, Kris Jenner Kollection and her new memoir, for three hours. She also discussed her daughter's impending divorce on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight on Halloween.
When news broke Monday that the 30-year-old Kim Kardashian was seeking a divorce from her 26-year-old husband, the Kardashians issued several statements to the media. First, of course to the E! network, which airs the family's Keeping Up With the Kardashians franchise. An E! spokesperson said that producers and executives were surprised by the divorce filing, going into emergency meetings to discuss how to proceed, including how the network will deal with scheduled re-airings of the couple’s two-part wedding special.
"After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage," Kardashian said through her rep. "I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever but sometimes things don't work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best."
Humphries said in a statement in response to the divorce: “I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce. I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.”
On Monday evening, Kardashian left for Australia and E! confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday that cameras will not be joining her.
