Here’s what Kris had to say…
On who the family turns to in hard times: “Kim is an extremely emotional person who’s so full of love and affection for me and for her kids and her husband and her sisters and brother. But she’s strong and calm in the midst of a storm. She’s like the one we all run to asking, ‘What the heck just happened?’ I’ve learned a lot from her.”
On yearning for being needed: “I’ll pull it together and be really strong for someone else. That gives me strength – when somebody else needs me. When I’m needed, I’m at my best. When I’m not needed, I get restless. I get anxious. I want my kids to need me because it gives me purpose. I’m the captain of the ship. So it’s my responsibility to make sure everybody’s okay.”
On overcoming pain: “Some people can’t handle what I have to give. I am very emotional – I can get hurt and I can cry. That pain is real, but it used to be a lot harder. I’ve lost people that I loved, and still love, very much. I’ve been disappointed in friendships over the years…At the end of the day, the reason we are so tight-knit is that there’s nothing that can get through the coat of armor. There’s just nothing. I love my family so hard that there isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for them.”
