With Bass off shooting a project for Comedy Central, the 57-year old was happy to take over his hosting chair and began by addressing one of the biggest rumors in the tabloids about her: that she and Bruce Jenner are headed to splitsville.
“We are not going to get a divorce,” Kris said to a caller about the lingering rumor. “You know what? That’s something that’s been out there in the tabloids and the rumor mill for quite some time, and no, we’re not getting divorced. We’ve been married going on 23 years and everything’s really good at home. [I’m] just getting ready to shoot another season of ‘Kardashians,’ so it’s all good.”
The talk then turned to one of her famous daughters – Khloe Kardashian-Odom. Drew Pokorny – who is moderator and co-host for the radio show, which airs on OutQ 108 and Cosmo Radio 109 – asked how she landed her coveted prime-time gig as host of “X Factor.”
“Well, she got offered the job from Simon Cowell,” said Kris, who is also the business manager for her offspring. “They wanted her to come and kind of do an audition for the part, and she nailed it. I think she did a really good job. So, we made it happen. We made sure that E! and Fox were lovebirds together, and just got her on the air. But I was so happy for Khloe because it’s something that she’s so passionate about, she’s always wanted to host, and I thought she’d be really great at it.”
As for whether we’ll see Khloe next to Mario Lopez for another season of the series, Kris wouldn’t spill the beans. “Well, we’ll find out,” she teased. “Can’t tell you anything about that. I’d have to kill you.”

And of course the subject of the latest member of the Kardashian klan – Kanye West, who is having a baby with Kim – came up as well.
“Well, he is just a great guy – obviously talented and wonderful, but he’s a great guy,” she gushed. “I am in love with him. You know you date someone in our family, or you marry someone in our family, or whatever it is, you kind of get the whole family.”
“This is the Mafioso talking, by the way,” Pokorny interjected.
“You get the whole family,” Kris replied. “I’m so impressed with him. I’m so happy for him and Kim. He’s great… And now there’s a little one on the way.”
As for the gender, the excited grandma-to-be didn’t dish on that either. “I don’t know. I don’t even ask anymore,” Kris replied. “There’s just so much going on. But whether they have a boy or a girl, I can’t wait to see what he or she looks like.”
