Kris Jenner has been slammed by her own sister and called out for her hungry ambition but she does have her defenders, and RadarOnline.com spoke exclusively with the stars of the new reality show Mother of All Talent who said they believe the controversial momager is “a genius.”
Nikki Galarza and her daughter Lorri Tierney are two Staten Island, NY women who run a talent agency for kids and they know what it takes to make a family famous.
“Kris Jenner is a genius,” Lorri told RadarOnline.com about the famous matriarch.
“She’s a smart business woman and I really like her dynamics with her kids. All of them are beautiful and I like her.”
Her own mother Nikki had a different take on one Kris’ daughters.
“One of them put on some weight but she looks like she lost the weight,” she said about Khloe Kardashian and when Lorri admonished her she sniffed “I’m not trying to be a supermodel.”
“She can only do so much and I feel so bad for her,” Lorri said.
“You have to be careful.”
Nikki and Lorri have a tumultuous mother/daughter relationship that is balanced out in their business and they told RadarOnline.com that they have seen firsthand how tough the business can be for child stars and how the tides are changing for what casting agents want today.
“It used to be the blonde haired blue-eyed ones got all the roles. Now it is a more universal look. Brown hair and brown eyes and the kid on the block look is what everyone wants,” Lorri said.
But they admit that they’re brutally honest to all the kids and parents.
“I’m not crude but I tell some kids, ‘You should take up soccer,’ which they sometimes want to hear because their parents are pushing them too much.”
Mother of All Talent premieres on TVGN on Tuesday, October 22 at 8/7c.
