Kendall Jenner’s “fraternal twin” Kirby Jenner discusses Quibi’s new show and Kris Jenner’s maternal advice


The series, titled “Kirby Jenner,” will air Monday on Quibi. The show centers on a 24-year-old performance artist who has become famous in the past five years with his parody Instagram account, where he claims to be Kendall Jenner’s fraternal twin brother.

The eight-episode series is produced by Kendall and Kris Jenner. The two make cameos in some episodes, with Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Kim Kardashian West.

The show will also feature guest appearances from actors Ray Romano, Ted Danson and Beverly D’Angelo.

“Kirby Jenner” started adding photos with Kendall Jenner and her family in 2015 and they noticed. He now calls Kris Jenner his “mom”.

CNN caught up with “Kirby” before the show started. He refused to give his real name and did not break his character during our conversation.

Kirby, why did you decide to participate in this series?

“In fact, it was not my decision at all. It was actually my mom’s idea (to put on the show), “he said of Kendall Jenner’s real mom, Kris Jenner. “(Kris) mentioned something about a guy named Quibi and how he wanted to do a reality show with me and I thought,” Whoa, is there a guy named Quibi? I was so intrigued and she said, “No, the network is called Quibi, the guy’s name is Jeffrey Katzenberg. I did a research on Jeffrey Katzenberg and I was amazed to learn that it was the guy who did ‘Shrek! ‘ “

How is the working environment with Kris Jenner?

“It’s fantastic, she’s such a good mom. I feel really lucky to have someone like her in my life. Not only is she a mom … when it comes to reality TV, she’s one of the best executive producers in the world. produced all my life. She is the executive producer of my house, where I live with her, she produces most of my meals and a large part of my travels. I mean, she’s the best. “

Tell us why you live in the attic of your “mom” house?

“I love it up there. I was in a room, but she (Kris Jenner) turned it into a lotion cupboard. Which was good, because the attic gives me a little more privacy. I’m 24, so I like having a little bit of my own space. It smells a bit like water up there, but it’s cold. “

Why should people listen to your Quibi show?

“My show has a little bit of everything. There is fashion and modeling. There is pyrotechnics, my sisters are there. I fought with a bird and a business clown and I sing. I’m really excited to show the world what I do behind closed doors. “

Tell us about the celebrities you invited on your show, including Ted Danson, how did that happen?

“Ted, I try to spend time with so many years. We met once, we played a phone number and we talked about going out and it never happened. Finally, I convinced him to sign up for a Japanese class with me because I knew he was trying to learn Japanese. I wasn’t, but I just wanted to hang out with Ted. “

Have you ever fought with your “sisters”?

“I will chat with some family members from time to time. Kimberly (Kardashian West) can get pretty disjointed, but the fights that Kendall (Jenner) and I will have will be really small and petty. Like, we used to fight over what to watch on TV. You know, Kendall always wanted to watch “Cops” and criminal justice shows, and I was more like “SpongeBob” and “Rocket Power” and cartoons. “

How are you during quarantine with Kris?

“I’m actually not at my mother’s, I’m at Kylie’s (Jenner). I am like in her mother-in-law or as a carriage. I don’t even think she knows I’m here to be honest. “
