Kris Jenner Says She 'Prays' to Get Through the Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson Scandal
"I find that just the spiritual side of me has to kick in because otherwise I feel like I wouldn't survive," Kris Jenner said
Throughout the many highs and lows that her famous family has faced, Kris Jenner looks to her faith to keep her grounded.
Throughout the past 15 seasons of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, audiences have watched the Kardashian and Jenner families rejoice and cry with one another through breakups, marriages, babies, a burglary and much more. On the upcoming season 16, which premieres Sunday, fans will get a behind-the-scenes look at the most recent shakeup that rocked the KarJenners: the Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson cheating scandal.
Speaking with Ryan Seacrest on On Air with Ryan Seacrest on Friday, Kris, 63, told the radio host that it’s prayer that helps her cope with the difficult events in life.
“First of all, I pray about it. I really do,” she said. “I find that just the spiritual side of me has to kick in because otherwise I feel like I wouldn’t survive.”
As for her children, Kris has confidence in her six children, who she said make “good decisions” and stick together as they navigate trials that come.
“I think that my kids make really good decisions and I think … as challenging as some of these situations are, I think that because they have one another and they try to make really good decisions, that they’re going to come out the other side with a lot of clarity and a lot of honesty and do what they feel like is the right thing,” she said.
The family matriarch also shared that her children having offspring of their own has made a difference on their outlooks on life.
“I think kids have really made such a difference, obviously, in all of their lives,” she said, and added, “Everyone so far except Kendall, she doesn’t have a baby yet.”
Shortly after news about Woods and Thompson’s hookup broke, Kris’ youngest child, Kylie, was named the world’s youngest self-made billionaire by Forbes.
Days before, on March 1, Woods, appeared on Jada Pinkett Smith‘s Facebook Watch show, Red Table Talk, to share her side of the cheating scandal, claiming that Thompson kissed her while she was on her way out of an afterparty at the NBA player’s house in February.
Although Woods has admitted she made a mistake, she’s denied being the reason why Thompson and Khloé — who share an 11-month-old daughter, True — are no longer together.
“I’m no home wrecker,” Woods said. “I would never try to hurt someone’s home, especially someone that I love. And someone that I’ve seen — has a beautiful daughter. I never was trying to steal someone’s man.”
But the scandal, which caused a serious rift in Kylie, 21, and Woods’ friendship, certainly hasn’t impacted the Kylie Cosmetic founder’s business pursuits.
“Kylie is an old soul and she’s super smart and she’s really responsible and she works hard,” Kris told Seacrest when asked how she keeps “a billionaire daughter on track.”
“She’s got the most amazing work ethic, and she’s really creative,” she said about Kylie, who shares 1-year-old daughter Stormi with boyfriend Travis Scott. “At this point, I just show up for work and say, ‘Okay boss, what are we doing today?’ ”
In July 2018, the makeup mogul was named one of America’s richest self-made women — with many wondering if “self-made” could apply to someone from a wealthy family like the Kardashians.

To set the record straight, Kylie told PAPER that her parents, Kris and Caitlyn Jenner, “cut her off at the age of 15.”
“I had such a huge platform, I had so many followers already and I had so many people watching me,” she said, adding that “the self-made thing is true.”
“My parents told me I needed to make my own money, it’s time to learn how to save and spend your own money, stuff like that,” she said. “What I’m trying to say is I did have a platform, but none of my money is inherited.”
Of creating her makeup company, Kylie told PAPER that she “followed her heart.”
“I just knew for myself as a customer, like, why am I buying a lip liner and a different lipstick? I wanted it the same color, I wanted it to be easy,” she told the magazine. “And I really spent every last dime that I had starting it, not even knowing if it would be successful.”
