>>> a brand new season of " keeping up with the kardashians " premieres later this month and there's a lot to keep up with, including the announcement of the fallout between kris and bruce jenner . i just don't like it, the more time we spend apart, the more they speculate about our family.
>> speculate about our family?
>> i know.
>> to be honest, i don't care.
>> i don't need our friends and family speculating.
>> kris kardashian is the executive producer. you're chuckling about that. what did you see funny about that?
>> it's just when you see it back because it's all so real and our family is continuing to transition and change every single season. and then you said "season nine" and i thought "season nine"?
>> what did you mean about the split.
>> i think you see a lot of what's going on in our lives, especially in the first several episodes of season nine. it's kind of shocking.
>> how'd they take it? what was the reaction?
>> you know, my family is so amazing and there's a lot of love and a lot of support. so i think all of different decisions we make individually, we always seem to come together as a family at the end of the day .
>> what is your relationship with bruce?
>> we're best friends . we talk all the time. and right now we're happier than we were. it's life as normal except we're living in two different houses.
>> what about the pony tail ? are you managing that, too?
>> i tried to manage. it needs its own manager. i think we've ganged up on him as a group. kendall and kylie are on trying to get rid of it.
>> what's been specifically some things that you've heard that have bothered you, either coming from the media or from within your own family?
>> we all have pretty tough skin. i think that after a while some things just get to you on a certain day. there's nothing really specific. it just that there's so -- 90% of it is more or less b.s. like when i read stuff, i'm like, oh, my goodness, this is like a creative writing assignment. but i think when you watch the show, it gives you a real clear picture.
>> embarking on a different path is khloe, there's been reports of a split and infidelity. but she said i don't regret anything about my life and i'm very happy with who i am. how difficult is it to see your kid go through a tough time, even though she's now an adult?
>> it's always tough when one of your kids goes through something like this. my heart is always with them 150%. and khloe, it's tough what she's been going through but, you know, we're just doing the best we can.
>> on the flip side you got baby north and kanye in the family?
>> oh, my gosh. and they live with me.
>> how's that going?
>> it's great. it's exciting to see her make all these changes. she's almost seven months old, so she's getting big.
>> nine seasons. did you think it would last this long?
>> nine seasons.
>> when you look at this, what do you think?
>> i love it. those are are the girls. i love it. it's really, really great and it makes me happy we all get to work together every single day so that's the joy, the blessing.
>> it's fun to see you. thank you, kris jenner . you can see the season premiere of " keeping up with the kardashians " on january 9th .
