(NEW YORK) -- Kris Jenner allegedly tried to bribe a columnist who panned her new talk show, Kris, the New York Post reports.
The Post’s television critic, Linda Stasi, wrote a scathing review of the talk show, saying Jenner should just “shut up."
Stasi says Jenner responded by sending her a dozen Magnolia cupcakes and a $325 sterling silver Tiffany pen. The Post has published a photo of the pen, along with a letter from Jenner that reads, “Dear Linda, sorry you didn’t like the show. I’m still a huge fan of your column. Love and blessings, Kris.”
Stasi replies with the message, “Sorry Kris, because the gifts didn’t work.” She adds, “To improve your rating…either you somehow become interesting, which given the data seems as likely as the Pope turning Jewish, or you do better with the bribes.”
