Forget teachers and books -- Kardashian clan matriarch Kris Jenner is claiming that a reality television show is really all that her six children need in the learning department.
"It's the best education I could offer them," the momager revealed to the Hollywood Reporter. She also noted that being on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" has been a great experience for Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Rob, Kendall and Kylie and the family is standing strong with their successful show.
"We’ve created businesses and a workplace," she said. "It’s so funny that somebody can criticize a show like ours, and yet we employ hundreds of people."
But Kris isn't just keeping busy by defending her family's show and reminding viewers that her unscripted family is very much the same with or without cameras. The 57-year-old cover lady has been spending time gearing up for her own talk show "Kris," which premieres mid-July, and told the magazine about her hopes to provide a path for women who might feel that it's too late to follow their dreams.
"Some people are just lost, and maybe I can be an inspiration," she said. But if she can inspire an education through reality TV, we're sure she'll be just fine being a positive influence on her new show.
