On Monday, July 29, 2013 I was invited by my friend, photographer Barry J. Holmes, to a taping of Kris Jenner's new daytime talk show 'Kris.' (The show aired on Wednesday, July 31st). I was really excited to attend the taping because I love the Kardashians and I really love their mom Kris. Also, I found out that the co-host for the day was going to be the one and only Nene Leaks from The Real Housewives of Atlanta!As we walked onto the studio lot (I had never been on a real Hollywood studio lot before) I approached the stage for 'Kris.' Before we walked up we were informed that there was going to be an animal segment with a camel but I had no idea that I would also see a live alligator in the stage loading dock. This would soon be the infamous alligator that chased Nene Leakes off the stage of Kris' show. Check out the clip here:
As the animal trainers soothed the gator, I walked in backstage and was quickly seated. The music was super loud and bumpin'. I referred to is as "Klub Kris" because it was basically like being at a Hell's Kitchen club in NYC on a Thursday night. Once the show began Nene and Kris came onto the set on the camel I mentioned before to celebrate "Hump Day." The ladies scrambled off of the camels back and the show began.

I think Kris did a great job during the taping of her show. You can tell that she really loves what she is doing and she seems very sweet and down to earth. The animal segment was hilarious, especially when Nene kept freaking out and running away and/or sassing the animals.
After the show, Kris came to talk to a few of the audience members and to pass out some chocolates form DCS Chocolates. I had a chance to say hello to Kris who was very sweet and said "Look at your bowtie!" I will take that as Kris loving my look and loving my bowtie! Nene came over to my side of the audience as well and I was the first person in the section that she spoke to (I told you bow ties can and will take you places). She said "Hey Love!" and gave me a hug and grabbed my hand as she told other people hello. It basically made my day! I think she felt the sassy factor that we both share and it and the universe finally brought us together as I knew it always would. BLOOP!
