Kris Jenner's Klassy Kookbook Features A Nicole Brown Simpson Recipe
Kris Jenner has come out with a new cookbook, In the Kitchen with Kris: A Kollection of Kardashian-Jenner Family Favorites. While that in and of itself is fairly unremarkable, what is interesting is that she has included a recipe for nachos from the late Nicole Brown Simpson. Back when Kris Jenner was Kris Kardashian, she and her husband Robert were good friends of O.J. and Nicole Brown Simpson. By Brown Simpson's murder in 1994, Jenner had divorced Kardashian and married Bruce Jenner. During all this time, Jenner was Brown Simpson's best friend, and Jenner would even name her daughter Kendall Nicole, born in '95, in Brown Simpson's honor.
According to the cookbook, Nicole was a great cook, and the first dish that comes to mind when Jenner thinks of her is her chicken nachos.
They were "so fabulous, they had a cult following," Jenner writes. "And for some reason they taste even more delicious when you gathered around the living room watching sports with family and friends."
In Jenner's 2011 memoir Kris Jenner…and All Things Kardashian, she said that Brown Simpson contacted her the day she was murdered, according to The Daily Mail. Jenner said that Brown Simpson told her she had something really important she needed to discuss. Jenner, however, said she was busy with her children that day so arranged to meet Brown Simpson the following day for lunch. By lunchtime the next day, it was too late.
Jenner claimed that what Brown Simpson wanted to discuss with her was the years of abuse she suffered at the hands of O.J. Simpson and how she had documented it over their 17-year marriage. This information seems like it would have been valuable during the trial, perhaps, and not in her memoir in 2011.
Of course, it was the late Robert Kardashian who would defend O.J. Simpson during the trial in which he was acquitted, despite popular opinion that he was the killer.
For those of us who want to relive the trial, Ryan Murphy is producing a American Crime Story: The People Vs. O.J. Simpson as a true-life companion piece to FX's American Horror Story.
