The Kardashians’ Childhood Nanny Reveals Kris Jenner “Wasn’t Easy To Work For”

His intentions might be good, or at least amusing but already there had been backlash about Jenner being "self-made", with detractors pointing out that she was born into a wealthy clan that accumulated even more riches over the last decade as reality TV's first family. The new mom, who welcomed a daughter named Stormi earlier this year with rapper boyfriend, Travis Scott, took to Twitter to thanks fans after her Forbes cover was released online. But her sister Kim Kardashian didn't think the criticism was warranted because she's adamant nobody works harder than her entire family.

'Just because we're a family now. - "Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided", Dictionary.com tweeted in response to the story, before adding: "Used in a sentence: Forbes says that Kylie Jenner is a self-made woman".

"I really didn't get it, because she is "self-made" - we are all 'self-made, '" said Kardashian West.

"When I landed in Houston to make up, he - I always kept saying I really want a Stormi chain, so when I landed, he had one made for me", she reveals.

"I know so many people like that who haven't turned out to be as successful as Kylie". In a preview for Kim's episode of Scandal Made Me Famous, Behan - who would drive the kids to school and extracurricular activities around Los Angeles and became a trusted member of the family - was seen discussing her experiences with the family.

"That's how I lived my life with my dad [Robert Kardashian]", she continued.

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott have addressed the ongoing rumour surrounding the supposed "Kardashian Curse". He never gave me anything. It was organic. And we would just go to these random cities.

In its article on Jenner, Forbes valued Jenner's cosmetics company, Kylie Cosmetics, at almost $800 million, saying that Jenner rakes in another $100 million from endorsement deals and appearances on her family's reality TV show. And I was like: "I guess I'm coming with you".
