The Kardashian crew – Kim, Khloé, Kourtney, Kris, Kylie, Kendall, and baby Mason – grace REDBOOK’s May cover and first-ever family issue, on newsstands April 12. In the interview, the Kardashian women open up about their family, life in front of the camera and their strong work ethic.
Kourtney on being out in public with 1-year-old Mason: “When I’m out in public with him, at a restaurant or just walking down the street, people come up to us and always want to talk to Mason. I mean, I like that everyone is so friendly, but I don’t want to confuse him. When people come up to us and want to take his picture, I always say no. I’m sure people are like, “Ugh, who does she think she is?” But that’s my time with Mason.”
Khloé on why people are fascinated with the Kardashians: “We are a real family. We don’t sugarcoat anything. We’re not the Brady Bunch, but we always put each other first. We love each other on camera, we cry on camera. I think people relate to the realness of it.”
Kris on the biggest misconceptions about the Kardashians: “It’s annoying when I hear, “What do your girls do?” Well, first of all, all of my daughters have jobs. They are fashion stylists and designers; they own a chain of stores. They had the stores before they had the show. And my kids worked from the time they were 13 years old. So to me, that’s a huge misconception — that the girls don’t work. They work 25 hours a day. And that they don’t have any talent? They might not be singers or dancers, but they certainly know how to produce a television show. Whether you want to call it talent or not, they have multiple shows on the air. [I want to say,] How many shows do you have? My girls’ work ethic is second to none. They get up at 4 a.m., go to work, work until they fall down, and then get up the next day and do it all over again.”
Kris on family values: “Our joy in life is that we always have each other. So I’ve tried to teach my kids three things: love God, love your family, and love yourself.”
