Kris Jenner talked about having her daughters on the reality show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” and said she believed it has helped give “young women self-esteem.”

“I think when the girls, Kourtney [Kardashian], Kimberly [Kardashian] and Khloé [Kardashian], first started doing our show, people really responded to them because they offered an image of something that was different,” the 63-year-old television personality shared during an interview for Harper’s Bazaar Arabia July/August Issue, according to an E! News piece published Monday. (RELATED: Kylie Jenner Keeps Bikini Season Going With Jaw-Dropping Swimsuit Shot [PHOTOS])

“It gave young women self-esteem,” she added.  “They started to feel better about themselves because they could embrace their bodies and didn’t have to have a certain look. Overall, I think the girls have been very influential in changing the way that women look at themselves.”  (RELATED: Kendall Jenner Goes Topless For Love Magazine Shoot [PHOTOS])

Jenner continued and explained that the show was “life-changing for a lot of people because they finally felt accepted.” She also noted that her daughter, Kim, really embraced the role of being “sort-of a spokesperson for curvy women.”

“And after that, when Kylie [Jenner] grew up and came onto the scene, she was really disruptive in the beauty industry and turned that on its head, too,” the entertainment manager shared.

“I don’t really do it to make money or think that far into the future if this is going to be super-successful,” the 21-year-old reality star shared. “I just knew my talents and was passionate about make-up and lips and lipsticks. It’s been a real love of mine for as long as I can remember.”

Kylie continued and said it was really just a matter of finding out she could turn her “passion into a business” when it came to cosmetics.

“I just followed my heart and went with how I felt,” she added. “Now I just feel so blessed every day to wake up, have fun doing what I love and make a career out of it. It’s amazing!”
