The next reality TV star getting her own talk show is Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner, via Twentieth Television, a production and syndication arm of News Corporation. There will be a six-week test of the show this summer on Fox before any decision is made about a longer run. And nobody could be more supportive than Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian.

"This is the time for their mom to shine," a friend of the family tells The Huffington Post. "After focusing on her family, making them into some of the biggest stars in the world, it's time for Kris to have her moment in the spotlight."

Short summer runs have apparently become the way Fox tests out talk shows. "The Wendy Williams Show" ran for several weeks in 2008 before receiving its permanent slot. Likewise, reality TV veteran Bethenny Frankel had a six-week test run for her show last summer before it was green-lighted.

"Kris has never ever been more excited," says a friend. "The entire family is being so supportive. As they move on with their careers, families and children, it's a great time for Kris to focus on a new project -- herself."

No news yet on whether the woman who has successfully managed the careers of her family plans to manage herself.
