If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. At least that is Kris Jenner’s attitude as she attempts to trademark the word “momager,” a term often used to describe the reality star since her family rose to fame on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

The matriarch of the Kardashian clan confirmed to People that she has just filed the legal documents necessary to trademark the word. If the filing is granted, Jenner would have the right to sue anyone who uses the term without her permission.

“Momager” is an appropriate nickname for Jenner, who has acted as manager to her six children for years. Head over to People to read more about what Jenner does to help daughter Kim Kardashian West with her career.
