Poor Kris Jenner wants everyone to know she's not the evil pimp momager we think she is!
Speaking to Joan Rivers on In Bed With Joan, Kris admits to being devastated when the news of Kim Kardashian's sex tape with then-boyfriend Ray J leaked.
"I literally fell apart," the Keeping Up With The Kardashians mom admits. “I cried myself to sleep. I don't think anything can prepare you for something like that when it comes to your daughter."
Kris said that she withdrew for a few days before deciding to be strong for Kim and her whole family. And thus the Kardashian kingdom was born. Thank goodness for serendipity I suppose… "I'm somewhat a religious person – and I keep that to myself," Kris says. Lest you forget she owns a church… "So I live a certain way and I feel a certain way and I pray for my kids everyday. I'm so in love with my family life; and that hits me, you know, up the side of the head and I literally fell apart."

"I had to go into a room and cry for a couple days and say, 'okay, pull yourself to–f**king–gether because you have to be here for all these kids and your family, and you have to show them as an example how to get through this,'" Kris confesses.
Kris also defends her choice to act as managers for her daughters' (and son's) careers and claims she makes a fraction of what most managers take. Is that why she's always pushing them to do more, more, more?!
"I love what I do. I think I have a lot to offer. I think I'm good at what I do but my thing is I would never take that for my own," she says of her children's earning potentials.
Kris says that her decision to make show business into a career for her family came naturally because they possess a "star quality".
"They do have talent," she insists. "Because what they started out to do they accomplished, which was clothing designers, they opened stores, and they had a business." Kris maintains that she is "extremely proud" of her kids' passion and that they found a way to turn that passion into careers. Famewhoring is a passion? Who knew!
Kris also reveals the family will continue with reality TV so long as they have fun with it and that everyone – even Bruce Jenner's sons Brody and Brandon – are "all in". I wonder if Kim has changed her mind about quitting the show then?
You can watch the whole interview with Kris below. Among the revelations she admits that Kourtney Kardashian was the most hesitant about reality TV (but now is the most honest on the shows), insists that the hijinks comes naturally to her family, Khloe is often confused about whether Kris is a mom or a manager, and that Scott Disick's antics are not at all scripted!
