Kris Jenner Loves Costco And Being In Control, Just Like Us

In this week’s New York Times Magazine, the brilliant Taffy Brodesser-Akner profiles Kris Jenner, who I now believe is one of the savviest women out there. The matriarch of the Kardashian industrial complex is actually just like us. She eats salads. She has a pile of nondisclosure agreements strewn on a table in her foyer. She loves her children fiercely and believes they are special enough to deserve the searing heat of the spotlight. She uses black toilet paper, much to Kim’s chagrin. And, she fucking loves Costco.

“Costco is a passion,” she told me. “Costco is like a massage.” She wanted to pick out the salmon with the herb butter on her own. She wanted to feel around for the best avocados. She did not trust anyone else to check the date stamp on the oatmeal-raisin cookies to see which were baked most recently. “They have the most amazing dog beds,” she said. “Don’t even get me started.” And the specials! “During the summer, there’ll be a fabulous surfboard. I don’t surf, but I’ve got to buy a surfboard. I mean, that’s how crazy I am.”

What I wouldn’t do to stroll through the wide aisles of Costco’s frozen foods room with Kris Jenner! The entire piece deserves a thorough read, so please, stop what you’re doing and check it out.  Happy Mother’s Day!
