Most parents will tell you that they don’t have a favorite child.
But usually, once they’ve downed a few glasses of fermented truth juice, they’ll be honest and admit that one offspring is head and shoulders above the rest.
Of course, in the Kardashian-Jenner clan, the most effective way to curry parental favor is by helping to build the family brand.
And so, Kris Jenner’s favoritism has likely shifted from Kim to Kylie, what with her youngest daughter becoming the world’s youngest billionaire and all.
But Kris Jenner didn’t become Hollywood’s most successful momager by sticking with same cash cow year after year.
She’s always on the lookout for the next big thing — and it looks like she may have found it in Sofia Richie.
As you’re probably aware, Sofia has been dating Scott Disick for quite some time.
This is surprising for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that Scott is 35 and Sofia is 20.
A 15-year age difference isn’s always a big deal, but when one person is a father of three and the other is an aspiring model who’s not yet old enough to buy booze, well — you can probably see why fans didn’t expect it to last.
But even more surprising than Scott and Sofia’s continued relationship is the fact that both seem to be in Kris’s good graces.
In fact, Scott and Kris have been developing a reality show together, and it seems that Sofia is now jumping on board with the project.
The show will focus on Disick’s house-flipping efforts, but because there are already roughly 40,000 such shows on basic cable, Kris reportedly feels that the addition of Sofia will help Flip It Like Disick stand out from the crows.
“Kris knows that it could not hurt ratings to have Sofia’s sexy little self on Scott’s spinoff,” a source close to production tells Radar Online.
It may seem strange for a mother to partner with her daughter’s ex’s new girlfriend — and that’s because it 100 percent is.
But that’s the nature of life in the Kard clan.
“Sofia is clearly becoming an asset and clearly isn’t going away,” says the insider.
“Kris thinks that the best part is that she can utilize her and market her for quite some time because Sofia hasn’t even turned 21 yet.”
And how does Kourtney Kardashian feel about all this?
Well, as you may have guessed, she’s less than thrilled with the situation — but not for the reasons you might think:
“Kourtney was upset about it because Kris has been putting all of this energy into Scott’s show and she has been sitting on negotiations for a spinoff for Kourtney and Khloe,” the tipster claims
Yes, Kourtney isn’t upset that Sofia is stealing her mother’s affection — she’s upset that she’s losing her manager.
But it looks like she’ll have to accept situations like this as part of her new normal:
“Sofia isn’t f–king around anymore,” says the source. “If she is going to be with Scott she’s sure as hell going to get paid for it.”
We guess Sofia is smarter than you’d expect for a young woman willing to enter a serious relationship with Scott freakin’ Disick!
