Kris Jenner can promise that anything you say about her and her family, they've heard before, which is why she raised her kids to take the high road and not take anything too seriously.

In a new interview with London's Evening Standard magazine, the momager assures, "We're in on the jokes," adding, "I don't have any regrets. I always tell my kids, ‘Don't take yourselves too seriously.'"

She maintains that demeanor even when asked about difficult topics. For example, whether she believes Caitlyn Jenner was intimidated by her in their marriage. "I didn't think so at the time, but perhaps," she says calmly. "You'd have to ask him. Or her."

When asked for more details about her marriage to Caitlyn, she maintains her cool but refuses to dive into any more detail than she already has in the past, leaving that part up to her ex-husband.

"I'm not going to talk about it... I wish everybody well; when it comes to everybody else's journey, as far as people that are trying to find themselves, this is a very fresh and new thing, so I think it's important for me to let her tell her own story."

And that's something she believes to be true for her family as a whole—each one of them has a story to tell.

"I see us as women who work hard. We want to do it all, we want to have families and we want to empower other women — men, too," she explains.

However, she says business comes last, and that's a mantra they all live by: "It's about family. I teach my kids: ‘God first, family second, and everything else comes behind that.'"

In fact, despite Kendall and Kylie Jenner moving out and finding their own agent—something that might look like them pulling away from their momager—she assures the world they're still a tight-knit group.

"I talk to them 12 times a day, I vacation with them," Kris laughs, before getting a bit more serious. "It was a tough one for me to give up [managing them] and say, ‘Somebody else is going to make a decision about one of my girls.' But I was never the strict mom that put up a lot of boundaries."

She adds, "Nobody has the kids' best interests at heart like I do. I don't want anything ever compromised, either one of my kids, or the brand."

Someone she still considers one of children is Lamar Odom. After being found unconscious in a Nevada brothel, Khloe Kardashian and the rest of the Kardashian family—who could have easily walked away from the complicated situation—really stepped up to help take care of him, proving that once you're part of their family, you're always part of their family.

"Khloé would never want anyone that she loves to be in a bad place or in pain," Kris says on the topic. "When you love someone, you love someone. Family is family. We all love him."
