When Kris graduated from Clairemont High School in 1973, she worked at a donut shop. She then worked for a year as a flight attendant for American Airlines.
In 1978, Kris married Robert Kardashian, who was famous since he was one of OJ Simpson’s defense attorney during the famous murder trial in the 90s. The marriage gave her four children: Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, and Rob. Robert and Kris got a divorce in 1991.
Kris then married Olympic athlete Bruce Jenner the same year she and Robert got divorced. The marriage gave her two daughters, Kendall and Kylie. Kris and Jenner also got a divorce in 2014. The next year, Bruce came out as a transgender person and was known officially as Caitlyn Jenner.
The show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” was pitched to producer Ryan Seacrest by Kris with the idea of making a reality TV show based on her family’s everyday life. The show debuted in 2007 on the E! entertainment network channel and is recognized as one of the longest-running reality TV shows in the world. She now serves as an executive producer of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
Kris also started a production company called “Jenner Communications,” based in Los Angeles. She was able to produce spinoff series such as “Kourtney & Kim Take Miami,” “Khloe & Lamar,” “Rob & Chyna,” and “Kourtney & Kim Take New York.”

Kris is also involved in entertainment management, starting with her own children’s careers – dubbing herself as a “momager.” She is known to take a 10% manager’s fee from all the projects of her children. A majority of Kris’ time is spent running her daughters’ careers.
In 2013, Kris was given her own talk show in daytime TV called “Kris.” However, due to low ratings, the talk show was not renewed.
