Jetlag can make us do some stupid things, right? Just ask Kris Jenner, who made a bit of an arse of things as she struggled to read the autocue and pronounce words when presenting the Multichannel Award at last night’s national Television Awards 2015.
Jetlag really is a b*tch sometimes. Or at least that’s what we assume she’ll blame it on anyway.
Not that we laugh/cringed/experience second-hand embarrassment for her or anything. NOPE. Professionals ’til the end, us.
Finding the autocue more of a struggle than being a momager, the 59-year-old mother of Kim Kardashian West stumbled her way through her presenting gig and showed us that not everyone has the skills needed to become a presenter.
Like reading, for example.
It all went wrong for Kris after she was dazzled by the ceremony’s host Dermot O’Leary, gushing over him on stage and saying: “May I say you have the most handsome television host. [You may, Kris. He is a hunk so we'll let you].
“I just wanted to give you my condolences because I would have voted for you.” [For entertainment Presenter, won by Ant and Dec for the 14th year in a row].
With Dermot on her mind, things went t*ts-up for the Kardashian when, in a particularly awkward moment, she managed to pronounce ‘Georgie Shore’ instead of ‘Geordie Shore.’
Yes. GEORGIE SHORE. The shore of Georgie. Georgie’s own personal shore. Amazing.
It didn’t really get any better for Kris (probably got worse, actually), as she left a big awkward gap when the video announcing the nominees kept going.
When the camera came back to her after her long silence, she then quickly ran off the last two nominees: ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘game of Thrones’.
Well at least she looked gorgeous anyway.
Kris allegedly sent a ridiculously long list of diva requests ahead of the awards, with a source telling The Sun: “She doesn’t do stairs, germs, or Z listers and has to fly first class.”
The mother of Kim Kardashian West allegedly demanded that she was not to be referred to as ‘the mother of Kim Kardashian West’ because she is a ‘stand-alone celebrity away from her famous children’.
The newspaper also claimed that another outlandish requirement made by the mother of Kim Kardashian West was that she did not want to pose with any British soap or reality stars – but she was happy to have pictures with fans.
But the list didn’t stop there. Oh no. The mother of Kim Kardashian West apparently wouldn’t walk down more than six steps at a time and would only drink Cristal champagne.
Maybe she should’ve added ‘Kris Jenner won’t read autocue’ to that list as well.
