Kris Jenner Swung By ‘The View’ To Talk North West’s Name Just In Time To Promote Her New Talk Show

By  | 

Kris Jenner The 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel - ArrivalsKris Jenner couldn’t have timed her third grandbaby any better. Just when the momager is fielding press inquiries about the long-awaited North West, she has a talk show debuting July 15th. Hence why she rolled over to The View to discuss both promotional platforms: a grandchild to pimp out and a new product for consumption. All in a day’s work for mama Jenner.

On The View couch, the Kardashian matriarch espoused the reasoning behind the name North West. Your guess on this PR gibberish is as good as mine:

“The way [Kim] explained it to me was that North means Highest Power, and she says that North is their highest point together…I thought that was really sweet.”

I would’ve thought that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s highest point together would be fame — or money. Or Lamborghini! Look out for that sibling. But Barbara Walters is right there cracking North West jokes with the rest of us, nominating the following for future brothers and sisters:

  • East West
  • South West
  • West West

YOU GO, Barbara!

But Kris also implied that she wasn’t quite savvy to her granddaughter’s nickname — “Nori”  — that has been floating around. Is that part rumor? Or perhaps she’s too busy saying “North West” on her Kris Jenner talk show press tour to give even know/care.
