Kris Jenner to the rescue.
Kim Kardashian may have spent endless hours sweating at the gym and bleaching her hair to cosplay Marilyn Monroe on the Met Gala 2022 red carpet, but it would never have happened without the help of her momager.
On Thursday’s new recent episode of Hulu’s “The Kardashians,” fans learned how Jenner, 67, convinced the Ripley’s Believe Ir or Not! museum to loan her daughter the one-of-a-kind “naked” dress Monroe wore to sing “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” to John F. Kennedy in 1962.
“They were not gonna let me wear this dress. They weren’t even gonna let me try it on — until Kris Jenner calls,” Kardashian, 42, explained in a confessional.
“I was like, ‘Please, Mom, if you make this happen I’ll marry you,’” she added in a mock whining voice. “I would have done anything.”
When asked how she swayed the museum’s team, Jenner simply laughed.
“I cannot tell you my secrets,” she said. “But if somebody says no, you know what I say: You’re talking to the wrong person.”
And while Ripley’s agreed to let Kardashian borrow the dress, she could only wear it while walking the red carpet, which meant she had to change into it on-site and then immediately swap it for a replica before entering the party itself.
“All of this — this losing weight, dyeing the hair for 30 hours, leaving the hotel in a robe, getting there, changing on the red carpet, just walking to the red carpet, then changing again into a replica of the dress because we can’t risk sitting in it and eating dinner — is all for maybe 10 minutes of my life … like, that’s it,” Kardashian mused on the show.
However, that red carpet moment — and the ensuing controversy — will live on forever.
However, her impact — and the criticism of her decision, plus accusations of damage — will live on forever.
