As a socialite, reality TV star, talent manager, TV producer, entrepreneur, author, and full-time celebrity, Kris Jenner has proven that he is different things to different people at different times. The matriarch of the highly acclaimed Kardashian Jenner dynasty has spent most of her adult life raising several members of her family to become world-famous superstars. She has proven to be the perfect embodiment of her nickname “momager” after successfully building her children’s careers into a billion-dollar empire.
Unlike the glitz and glamour of her current life, Kris Jenner didn’t have it so rosy when she was growing up. She was born on November 5, 1955, in San Diego, California, as Kristen Mary Houghton and raised by her mother after her parents divorced when she was 7 years old. She graduated from Clairemont High School in 1973 and worked in a doughnut store as a teenager, and after graduating from high school she also worked as a flight attendant for a short time.

Although he may not receive as much media attention as his sisters, Jenner’s only son, Rob Kardashian, is also a socialite, a television personality, and a businessman.
The Kar Jenner sisters are all models to some extent, but Kendall Jenner has made a name for himself as a professional fashion model. Kylie Jenner, for her part, has also made a name for herself as a true social media personality who has gained a large online fan base over the years.
