Kathie Lee Gifford on Kris Jenner: ‘We Talk The Lord and What He’s Doing in Our Lives’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Kathie Lee Gifford shared how faith has bonded her and friend Kris Jenner while promoting her new book, The Jesus I Know: Honest Conversations and Diverse Opinions About Who He Is.

“[Jenner] is one of my oldest friends and people don’t think of Kris Jenner as a person that actually has a personal relationship with Jesus, but she does,” the Movieguide® Visionary Award Winner shared while appearing on THE KATIE MCGRADY SHOW. 

“I met her in Bible study in the 1970s in L.A. And when we get together these days, that’s what we talk about. We talk about the Lord. And I don’t need to hear the garbage that’s going on in this world and all the gossip and all that. No, we talk about the Lord and what He’s doing in our lives.

“And I don’t get to see her very much,” Gifford continued. “Our lives are, our worlds are completely different, but I know that if I needed her, it’s one phone call away and she knows the same. And people [say], ‘How can you be friends with – ?’ I said, ‘Because that’s what a friend is.’ You love your friend. You don’t drop them at the minute you don’t agree with something or choice they make. Don’t call yourself a friend if you’re not willing to be one in the hard times.”

Gifford also spoke about her book, which features interviews with notable people. 

“I just had these conversations with people as diverse as the United Nations, honestly,” Gifford said. “But what they had in common, first of all, they’re all people that I know and value. And I think too often, we, in our Christian little worlds, Jesus said go into all the world and make disciples of all people and bless them in my name. Right? Well, too often, we don’t do that. 

“We just get very, very cozy and comfortable and sort of fat and sassy sitting in our pews. And I mean that in a derogatory way,” she continued. “And not going out there and seeking out those who are completely different than we are. The way Jesus did, the Samaritan woman, the Demoniac, so many stories in the Bible, the 10 lepers. He went out of his way literally to love what the world said would be unlovable, the outcast. 

“And I said, that’s why we are not alive as a church. In my lifetime we haven’t been. We have not done that. It’s easier for us to write a check and send it off to a missionary in Africa, then actually be with somebody, and love them, and take the time to see their hearts and their hurts and love them the way Jesus did,” Gifford finished.
