In the shiny world of Hollywood, Kris has managed to turn her clan into leading influencers, reality TV royalty, and business magnates in their own right. This feat is mind-blowing, yet Kris pulled it off with total style. And along the way, she’s banked a heck of a lot of money. Her net worth in 2023? Only a cool $170 million.

Early Life, Career, and Breakthrough

Born as Kristen Mary Houghton on November 5, 1955, in sunny San Diego, there wasn’t much that could slow this gal down. Her dad, Robert Houghton, was an aircraft engineer, while her mom, Mary Jo Campbell was a smart cookie in the business world. When her parents split in 1962, Kris, her little sis Karen, and their mother hopped over to Clairemont, California.

In the years before she morphed into the powerhouse we know today, Kris was earning a living as a flight attendant for American Airlines in 1976. That same year, she added a bit more to her piggy bank when she and her mom started up local candle shop in chic La Jolla, a suburb in San Diego. Indeed, it did not take Kris long to find her entrepreneurial feet.

Her humble beginnings gave way to fame and fortune in 1978 when she married high-profile lawyer Robert Kardashian. They had four kids (you may have heard of them): Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, and Rob. They went their separate ways in ’91. She tied the knot with Bruce Jenner (now Caitlyn Jenner) the same year. With Cait, Kris had two more girls: Kendall and Kylie.

Now that the “cast” was in place, it was time for the limelight. In 2007, Ryan Seacrest thought to create a reality show about the wild and unpredictable world of the Kardashians and Jenners. The offspring of his brainstorming: Keeping Up with the Kardashians (KUWTK). The show proved addictive and has been a mainstay on TV in various forms ever since. Kris, not only a star, joined the production crew and cranked up her influence… and her bank account.

Reality TV Earnings: Kris Cashes In on the Kardashians

It’s no secret that most of Kris Jenner’s fortune comes from the crazy success of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Launching this show in 2007 turned out to be a genius move, making the Kardashian-Jenner family globally famous for their bold and glamorous lifestyle.

For 14 years, Kris made serious cash from KUWTK, earning $100,000 an episode from 2007 to 2021. Considering the number of episodes in the 20 seasons and the multiple specials, KUWTK contributed a huge chunk to Kris Jenner’s worth.

And Kris didn’t stop there. In 2022, she started another reality TV series for her family on Hulu: The Kardashians, further expanding the Kardashian-Jenner reality TV dynasty.

As the manager of her celeb kids’ careers—head of Jenner Communications—Kris Jenner has cleverly turned their fame into a well-oiled money-making machine. She’s taking a 10% cut from absolutely everything they earn like product sales, show appearances, and television shows. This means Kris earns herself a payday every time one of her kids launches a product, films an episode, or signs an endorsement deal.

Beyond the Kardashians: Kris’s Other Revenues

While Kris Jenner made millions by being the icon of Keeping Up with the Kardashians and the momager to the most famous clan in Hollywood, it’s not the only revenue stream at her disposal.

Kris has managed to turn her family tree into a multi-industry empire, from stylish threads to killer beauty products, and even eco-friendly cleaning products.

In 2021, Kris linked up with social media star Chrissy Teigen to whip out Safely, a range of green cleaning products. In the same breath, she also had a major hand in the sizzling launch of Kendall’s high-end tequila, 818 Tequila, in 2021.

Kris also helped her son, Rob Kardashian (a.k.a. the recluse of the clan), get his own fashion hustle off the ground. In 2012, they tag-teamed to start Arthur George, a luxury sock brand that had Kris’s finesse all over it. Fast-forward to 2019, the dynamic duo launched Halfway Dead, an edgy streetwear brand that proved Kris has still got it in the fashion department.

Kars & Kribs & Kare: Kris’s Possessions and Philanthropy

In 2020, Kris shimmied into a mansion (“mansion” doesn’t do it justice, really) in the swanky Hidden Hills neighborhood of the city of angels itself, L.A. The 16,000-square-foot palace cost her $20 million, which is a testimony to her business queen status.

Her luxurious life doesn’t stop at real estate. Kris also owns an awe-inspiring collection of rides. Her garage‘s got a Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG ($142,800), a Bentley Continental GT convertible ($236,100), Rolls-Royce Ghost ($343,850), Ferrari California ($195,840), and a 2018 Ferrari 488 Spider ($280,900) stuffed inside. 

Even with the glitz and the glam, Kris doesn’t forget to share the love. She’s big on giving back. In 2020, she made sizable donations to charities like the Ronald McDonald House Charities, who are all about helping the families of sick children all over the world. Despite the chaos and uncertainty of the period, Kris managed to raise $3 million for MCHC during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Getting Real with Reality: Kris’s Personal Life

Right now, Kris is deeply in love with her man Corey Gamble. They had a chance meeting at a party in 2014 and went public with their romance the next year.

Despite juggling a killer career, Kris is all about her #1 priority: her family! She’s regularly snapped supporting her kids, whether that’s working together with them on their individual endeavors or attending her own grandkids’ birthday parties.

Major Events: Kris Overcomes Controversy

If you find it hard to keep up with the Kardashians, you’re not alone. The celeb world is like a game of dodgeball where every word or move can spark a scandal. So what would a prime-time Kardashians episode be without Kris Jenner in some kind of trouble, right?

Back in September 2020, a man named Marc McWilliams, who back in the day babysat the Kardashian family as their bodyguard, sued Kris. According to him, Kris had pushed the flirt button too hard and too often during his shift.

Kris Jenner took it in stride while her army of lawyers took care of the legal entanglement without upsetting Kris’s public persona. By August 2021, Kris and her ex-bodyguard agreed to settle in private arbitration.
