Kris Jenner talks about her family's infamous bombshell

The Daily Mail reports that Kris Jenner talked about her family's success and fame on a new episode of "OBJECTified" on Fox News.

The 62-year-old momager, who rose to fame when she started starring on the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," was asked whether it was the pornographic home video of her daughter, Kim Kardashian, 37, and ex-boyfriend Ray J, 37, that catapulted her empire to international stardom [VIDEO].

In the featured video, Kris Jenner didn't directly answer the question and cleverly evaded admitting that it was Kim Kardashian's sex scandal that got them famous. "You know I can't control what other people say and obviously that was a hard thing to go through. That was obviously a real hard time for any mom, it was devastating," she said.

Kris Jenner was also asked how her family dealt with the issue. She said that as a family, anyone can get through anything - something that she learned as the matriarch of the Kardashian-Jenner empire.

Was Kris Jenner responsible for the video?

Kim Kardashian was known for being Paris Hilton's personal stylist before her sex tape with singer-songwriter Ray J leaked in 2007. Rumors have it that Kris Jenner was responsible for the leaked home video, something that she firmly refuted. Although fans didn't think that the momager would do something like that, others were doubtful, especially when it comes to money and fame.

Kris Jenner's alleged notoriety in fame

A recent report from Radar Online claimed that the famous mother of six has been trying to befriend [VIDEO] TV host Steve Harvey, 61, to learn his TV secrets. The famous comedian is known for his TV expertise and the game show "Family Feud" can thank Harvey for its success since he began hosting the show in 2010.

The same news outlet also reported that Kris Jenner is romantically linked to Harvey, which allegedly prompted his wife, Marjorie to file for a divorce that might cost him $400 million.

These reports, however, remain unconfirmed and should be taken with a pinch of salt.

Meanwhile, there will be more things to know about the Kardashian-Jenner empire on the upcoming episode of "OBJECTified, which will be aired on Sunday on Fox News channel.
