She'd been hoping to make a name for herself as the next Oprah Winfrey until her self-titled chat show was panned by critics.
But Kris Jenner went to somewhat extreme lengths in the hope of keeping one television critic sweet.
The Kardashian matriarch shamelessly attempted to bribe New York Post reporter Linda Stasi into writing a positive review of Kris by sending her a sterling silver Tiffany pen - retailing at a price of £275 - and cupcakes.
However, unfortunately for the 57-year-old reality star, the columnist outed her sneaky move on Twitter.
Kris wrote: 'Dear Linda, Sorry you didn't like the show. I'm still a huge fan of your column. Love and blessings, Kris.'
She added: 'P.S. When you think I've improved, maybe you will write a better review with this.'
Slamming the attempted bribe as 'shockingly wrong', Linda then took to her Twitter page to spill the secret.
She tweeted: 'Does this bribe make me look fat? Kris Jenner just sent me a Tiffany pen with which to write her a better review next time! Shockingly wrong!'
'She has as much right having a talk show as her dopey daughter [Khloe Kardashian] with no talent had being a host of the X Factor,' the critic said in the video
'Horrible, horrible, boring self-involved. I couldn't bear it.'
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the fame-hungry matriarch's inaugural broadcast on Monday beat out Katie, Steve Harvey, and Dr. Phil in Los Angeles. In Dallas, her Fox talk show topped Ellen, Dr. Oz. and Dr. Phil.
However, Fox's The Real beat Jenner's show in the ratings for New York and Philadelphia.
The mother-of-six kicked off her new talk show with controversy as she passed off her stylist's baby for granddaughter North West in order to drum up ratings.
