I have to be up front and tell you the truth. Being British, I don’t know who Kris Jenner is.
Indeed, I have to admit that I thought the Kardashians were aliens in Star Trek.
However, I understand that many people *do* consider Kris Jenner a celebrity, and avidly follow the antics of her family - most of whom seem to have first names beginning with the letter K.
In an upcoming episode of reality TV show “The Kardashians”, Kris Jenner is expected to reveal that a hacker has broken into her iCloud account, and managed to access surveillance footage of her pottering about nude inside her Californian house.
What is more, according to reports in TMZ and The Independent, the 59-year-old reality star claims that the hacker is blackmailing her, and threatening to release the video footage of Kris Jenner’s private moments to the public.
According to TMZ, one of the Kardashians is not rattled by the news of naked footage potentially appearing on the net:
“Kris tells the kids that someone wants money for the video and everyone present is disgusted … EXCEPT KIM!”
Sources in the production team have told the media that the LA County Sheriff’s Department has informed of the hack.
I’m not sure which I would prefer to believe: that the hack plot is a load of old hokey dreamt up by TV producers to inject some tasteless bogus drama into a tabloid TV show on the back of last year’s celebrity hack, or that a family that lives its life in the glare of TV cameras is the innocent victim of an unpleasant and frightening privacy invasion.
Your guess is as good as mine.
Let me know if the identity of the hacker is ever resolved. I won’t be watching.
