The seventeenth season—yes, really—of Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered this weekend, and it’s fair to say that during their 12 years on air, the clan has faced more than their fair share of personal ups, downs, controversies, falls outs, and makeups. So when matriarch and momager Kris Jenner paid James Corden a visit last night at The Late Late Show (weekdays at 12:37 a.m. ET), he couldn’t help but wonder—was there anything she was embarrassed by in all these years, and over 200 episodes? The world wants to know.
Turns out it wasn’t the screaming matches, lies, scandals, or drama that sent Mama Kris cringing—it was something much more relatable: “the outfits, I think and the hair,” she said. Hey—we know if we revisited our 2007 closets, we’d be pretty mortified, too. Oh, the flared jeans!
When Corden continued to probe if there was anything she’d change in the family’s storied history, she was quick to confess that re-watching old episodes was a little awkward, admitting, “sometimes it can get a little cringeworthy,” but vowed she wouldn’t change a thing. After all, “We’re here because of the journey we’ve been on, so I’m just grateful.” Well damn, how’s that for earnestness?
But it wasn’t all about the show, oh no. Jenner had plenty of time to talk about other things like how prepared she is for any impending disasters that might come our way. She’s a self-confessed “girl scout” with a survival kit for all manner of natural disasters. So when the inevitable climate apocalypse hits, we’re heading straight to Calabasas… you know, assuming it’s not under water.
But the evening wasn’t all reflection and disaster prep’ Jenner also enjoyed a go at ‘The Price Is Right’ game Hi Lo, as well as a birthdate quiz with fellow guest James van der Beek, who has a brood almost a big as the Kardashian one, with a stunning five children. So when the Kardashians have had their fill, maybe a nice new season of Keeping Up with the van der Beeks will keep us entertained.
