Kris Jenner's new talk show, "Kris," has been getting terrible reviews, but rather than try to make the show more entertaining, Jenner attempted to win over one particularly dissatisfied TV critic with a bribe.
In her July 16 column, the New York Post's Linda Stasi wrote that Jenner's talk show "is so horrible it should come with a hazard warning," and the 57-year-old reality star "comes across as a spoiled, vacuous woman with nothing to say of any interest, importance or humor."
Jenner has developed a thick skin over the years, so we're not sure if her feelings were hurt by Stasi's review. However, her show is only on a six-week trial run and she needs good reviews and even better ratings to prove to Fox that it should be renewed for a full season. What is a woman such as Kris Jenner to do in a situation like this? Well, naturally she'd attempt to bribe Stasi with a dozen Magnolia cupcakes, and a $325 sterling silver pen from Tiffany's.
Along with the gifts came a note from Jenner that read:
"Dear Linda, Sorry you didn’t like the show. I’m still a huge fan of your column. Love and blessings, Kris. P.S. When you think I’ve improved, maybe you will write a better REVIEW with this!”
It seems this is one scheme that's not going to work, especially since Stasi wrote that she can't be bought, and that she thinks that for Jenner to improve her ratings she either has to "somehow become interesting, which given the data seems as likely as the pope turning Jewish, or you do better with the bribes."
