A dinner party for the books!
In this clip from Sunday's new Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Alice Johnson brings a few family members with her to Kendall Jenner's house, where the rest of the KarJenner clan is happily awaiting their arrival. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have maintained a close relationship with Alice since Kim personally asked the president to commute her lifetime prison sentence, and he obliged.
The dinner was originally supposed to take place at Kim and Kanye's home—Alice is in town to speak at a prison reform summit with Kim and the two had made plans to cook a meal together—but the tumultuous Woolsey Fires have rendered the Hidden Hills estate temporarily closed for business. The last-minute location switch turns out to be no issue. Soon after arriving with her own clan in tow (sisters Dolores and Patricia are there too) Alice is in the kitchen with Kim and North West, teaching the gals how to make biscuits from scratch.
"So, where are you guys living now?" Kris Jenner asks once everyone's sitting down.
Alice says she's been living in Arizona with her daughter, who's raising 8-month-old twins. "Gonna send you a playmate for your baby," she nods to Khloe Kardashian with a chuckle before adding, "It feels good to be there to watch the babies grow."
Since her release from an Alabama correctional facility last summer, Alice has landed a joint book and movie deal to tell her story. But both she and Kim acknowledge that many people in her position struggle to support themselves after leaving prison, often because opportunities to do so aren't available to them.
"That was one of the reasons that many of them came back to prison. They couldn't find jobs and they returned to what they knew," she explains. But despite the lack of employment options for recently- or soon-to-be-released inmates, Kim says having a job offer locked down (or some other source of stability) is basically a prerequisite for people seeking clemency. Luckily, Alice always had a really strong support system.
"When I was pleading your case to the president, I was like, 'She has family that she can live with. And she has job offers,'" Kim remembers. "So that was a huge thing is, I had to say, 'She has a job offer.'"
