It would be an understatement to say that Kris and Caitlyn Jenner are doing fine financially these days, but that wasn’t the case when they first got married.
Kris says, “I told my assistant, Lisa, ‘OK, listen. We have the greatest guy here. He really knows his craft. He is really good at what he does, but he doesn’t have anybody doing anything for him.
“‘He doesn’t have a lot going on. He has $200 in the bank. What are we going to do?’ Because the kids have to eat. We have to get it together.”
They DID get it together. They set Bruce up with a photo shoot, put together press kits, made a “sizzle reel,” and sent everything out to, “every speakers’ bureau in the United States.”
Pretty soon they were getting booked for speeches by Visa and Coca-Cola…and the rest is history.
Kris also admits that Kim Kardashian initially got famous for, “not the greatest reason,” but she added that she was “just being a silly kid.”[Lenny Letter]
