Kris Jenner has created a near duplicate of the Art Deco entrance hall in her Calabasas, California mansion for the set of her new chat show Kris, which premieres July 15.
The new set looks almost exactly like her foyer – which is often featured in E!’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians – complete with a sweeping double staircase, black-and-white checkered floor and white chandeliers, reports TV Guide.
“All that’s missing is Fred Astaire,” said Kris Jenner, who teamed up with production designer Anton Goss (responsible for The Voice set) to create a replica of her home.
“I know other talk-show sets are intimate and conservative, but I dream big.”
Kris Jenner, 57, explained: “We need energy and glamour in the afternoon.
“I make a grand entrance down my own staircase at least once a day only there’s nobody there to enjoy it. I’m like, <<Where is everybody?>> That’s why I needed a talk show!”
The Kardashian momager – who has masterminded the reality TV careers of her entire family, most notably daughter Kim Kardashian – will present a one-hour show featuring celebrity guests and fashion, beauty and lifestyle discussions.
Kris Jenner said: “This is something I have wanted to do all my life so it’s definitely a dream come true! I can’t wait for this new adventure to begin.”
She tweeted her excitement about the show on Friday, stating: “Cannot wait for you dolls to see my talk show @krisjennershow!!! #KrisTV.”
Her daughter Kim Kardashian was also drumming up some support.
On her blog she wrote: “How amazing is this? The set design for my mom’s talk show is brilliant!
“It looks just like my mom’s house! Make sure you check out Kris when it airs July 15th!”
Twentieth Television believe Kris Jenner’s experience as a momager will help her be a great TV host.
Stephen Brown, Twentieth’s EVP of Development & Programming said: “The latest adventures, successes and disappointments surrounding the extensive Kardashian and Jenner family fill entertainment magazines and create daily online headlines.
“ [In the middle] of this fascinating empire is Kris Jenner – a dedicated mom and a successful business woman.
“Whether offering real advice to her family or sharing personal moments with viewers, Kris is honest, compelling, entertaining, and unscripted – all excellent qualities for a daytime talk show host.”
