Hollywood Reporter Celebrates 10 Yrs of The Kardashians...Reveals The Brain Behind Their Hit Show

America's first family of television is on the cover of Hollywood Reporter magazine and they are celebrating 10 years of letting us into their lives. 
As expected, they revealed somethings about what has been happening behind the scenes. 
It has also been confirmed, like we suspected, that the original momager, Kris Jenner, sold the idea of the show, when Ryan Seacrest was looking to cash in on the  emerging reality TV business at the time. Excerpts......

In Caitlyn Jenner's memoir, The Secrets of My Life, released earlier this year, she implies that the series may actually have been her brainchild. She writes, "The house is awash in puberty and adolescence and young adulthood and two parents with very different styles. It seems to me something is there for television. … Kris says she is the one who came up with the idea …" Jenner declined to participate in this story.

Kris It's so absurd. I'm not sure what the motivation was for her to say something like that. Maybe somebody should remind her that it's called Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Ryan Seacrest (executive producer) Everyone was talking about The Osbournes, and I said to my development executive Eliot [Goldberg], "Let's try to find something in this world and take it to E!"

Kris One night, Deena Katz [casting director for Dancing With the Stars] came over for dinner and life was swirling around, and she said, "This is a reality show — I think you should really talk to Ryan Seacrest." So I did.

Seacrest Kris told me what she envisioned, and I said, "Let's send a crew to your house and tape some stuff and then we'll take a look at it." Then I realized I didn't have a crew; I didn't even have a camera. I had Eliot buy a camera, and he went and shot them. He called me after and said, "I think we have something special."

Kourtney Kardashian (star, executive producer) We had talked to producers about doing a show about the three of us running the store, Dash, where Khloe and I would do the day-to-day, and Kim would come in as a stylist. It didn't go anywhere.
