There are some phrases that never really make sense, no matter how real they are. For instance: “Academy Award-Winning Guy Who Directed Anchorman,” Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Faye Resnick’s reaction to Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy. But Adam McKay does have an Oscar for The Big Short, the Terminator did serve as Governor of California from 2003-2011, and 20-year-old makeup mogul Kylie is reportedly pregnant. And over the weekend, Faye Resnick reacted to Kylie’s pregnancy in an interview with Us Weekly. Kylie is the youngest of Kris Jenner’s six biological children, and Kris’ best friend Resnick only had nice — if nicely shady — things to say about Grandma. Sorry, Grandma Kris. No! Just Kris. Kris Jenner, a human woman and grandmother, soon to be seven times over.
The chat was brief, but Resnick managed to call her pal Kris “the greatest grandmother” more than once. It seems kind of suspect that she wouldn’t mention Kylie’s health, the family’s excitement, or anything else; she simply used the opportunity to call Kris a grandmother over and over again. Was she shading her longtime pal? Sending a hint to her own daughter? Or just being good ol’ Faye Resnick? Most likely D. All of the above, and then some.
She also told Us, “I can believe it. They blow up the internet for everything. I mean, this is huge — if it’s true.”
For those not in the know, Resnick is the longtime best friend of Kris, the Patron Saint of Reality Television. Resnick shot to infamy in 1994, when she published a “biography” that was critical of the late Nicole Brown Simpson. More recently, Resnick has appeared on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Keeping Up With The Kardashians. If none of this rings the proverbial bell for you, this might: She was played by Connie Britton in the FX miniseries about the O.J. trial. So, that’s Resnick in a nutshell. It should surprise no one that she has found a way to make her friend’s daughter’s pregnancy at least a little about herself.
Resnick’s daughter, however is decidedly lower-key than her mother. According to social media, Francesca Sophia runs a floral arrangement company in Los Angeles. She’s married to film and TV composer Kevin Blumenfeld, and uses the name Francesca Blume professionally. Though Resnick has essentially been a notorious tabloid fixture for Francesca’s entire life, she’s still a mom, and all moms want to be grandmothers. It’s just a thing. It’s not that you, her beautiful child, aren’t enough, but mom would love to be a grandmother, too. Just like her pal Kris Jenner.
While most of us are still desperate to wrap our minds around Kylie’s rumored pregnancy, Resnick has already found a way to publicly share in her friend’s daughter’s happiness. The most persistent rumors claim that Kylie is four months pregnant, supposedly with a girl, and the proposed due date is February 2018. (When the news first broke, Bustle reached out to Scott’s rep, but did not receive an immediate response; Kylie’s rep could not be reached.) None of this has been confirmed, but that opens the door to one Very Special Game: What Will Kylie Name Her Child? She’s expecting with boyfriend Travis Scott, whose legal name is Jacques Webster, Jr. Elder half-sister Kourtney Kardashian has three children with ex-flame Scott Disick, all of whom have the last name Disick. You can’t forget about Kimye’s two kids, North and Saint West. Kris’ sixth grandchild is Dream, daughter of Rob Kardashian and ex-fiancée Angela “Blac Chyna” White.
So, what will Kylie Kristen Jenner name her baby? It’s really anyone’s guess. Maybe Resnick will have a suggestion. No matter what happens, though, fans can breathe easy. According to Resnick, Kris is “literally the greatest grandmother in the world.” Not a great-grandmother, mind you, though one would imagine Resnick understands that confusion. Kris is just a great grandmother. Thus spake Zarathustra, and the world spins madly on.
