Bruce and Kris Jenner 'Encourage' Kendall's Modeling Career

08/11/2010 at 12:45 PM ET

With older sisters like Kim, Kourtney and Khloe, it might be hard to steal the spotlight in the Kardashian family, but there’s no denying that budding model Kendall Jenner has had her fair share of the limelight lately. From her controversial bikini photo shoot to her recent high fashion portfolio pictures, it’s obvious that she’s serious about making a name for herself in the industry, and her parents couldn’t be more proud. “One of her lifelong passions is to be a model, and it’s something she’s really excited about,” Kris Jenner told PEOPLE at an E! junket for Keeping Up with the Kardashians in LA Tuesday. While her father, Bruce, has voiced his concerns in the past about Kendall pursuing modeling, he’s now supporting her career—as long as her schoolwork doesn’t suffer. “I sat down with her and said ‘If I see school slipping, that’s not going to work. You’re going to stop until you’re out of school,’” he said. “Last year she had her best year ever, so I encourage it. I think it builds a lot of character in a young person so I have no problem with them starting early.” As for the bikini photos that caused quite a stir earlier this month? “I grew up in San Diego wearing a bikini my entire life, so I didn’t think there was anything wrong with it,” said Kris. “They’re tasteful, she’s covered up completely and they’re not provocative. They’re just gorgeous shots.” —Mussarat Bata

Kris is a money and fame whhore. She will pimp her kids to the highest bidder. Bruce stands by the sidelines holding his balls in her purse (if Kris lets him). Kris is the boss of that family and everyone knows it. When she says spread your legs, they ask how wide?

I think Kendall and Kylie look so much like Khloe, really pretty!!!

So why does ANYONE care about any of these “Kardashians” who’ve done absolutely nothing with their lives except be socialebrities…and why? Because they have money!
