Kris Jenner is reportedly intent on becoming the next Barbara Walters and a new report claims the reality TV star is urging her daughter Kim Kardashian to unveil her newborn on her upcoming talk show.
On July 15 the mother-of-six, 56, will debut her first ever talk show "Kris." And Kardashian's unborn baby could ultimately help make the show a ratings winner. The 32-year-old reality TV star is scheduled to give birth to her and rapper Kanye West's first child within weeks and while there is an alleged bidding war among tabloids over first baby photos, Jenner is reportedly determined to garner rights to any exclusives.
"Kris Jenner wants Kim's baby all over her show. Either having the name reveal or have Kim bring the kid on the show to be the first to show what the kid looks like," a source told HollywoodLife.com.
"They know much will be revealed about the baby before the July 15 show debut, but many firsts with the baby will be revealed on Kris' show," the source explained.
Jenner, who is no stranger to the camera, will host "Kris," a daily 1-hour program that will reportedly air on select Fox-owned stations in New York, Los Angeles and other cities. The E! Star, who is renowned for her aggressive money-making tactics, is reportedly saying that she will be the next Barbara Walters.
Walters, 83, is a highly respected award-winning Journalist who has worked in the media for over five decades. She currently works for the ABC network and hosts "The View."
"She's excited to get even more famous with the show and will prove to everyone that she's more than just a reality star," a source explained about Jenner's ambitions.
"She says she wants to be the new Barbara Walters, and knows what it takes to get people to open up and reveal their deepest, darkest secrets," the source said adding "She is the Barbara Walters for the new generation."
