"Keeping Up Appearances With The Kardashians"

From Wiki and Wiki:

The TV series revolves around Kris Jenner (Patricia Routledge) - who insists her surname is pronounced Bouquet (although in reality, "It was 'Kardashian’ until she remarried!”).

She is a pompous social-climbing snob, originally from a very poor working-class background, whose main mission in life is to impress others with her children from her first marriage to deceased attorney Robert Kardashian: Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, and Rob.

Kris likes to spend her days visiting stately homes (convinced she will meet her children by her second husband: Kendall and Kylie) and hosting "executive-style" candlelight suppers (with her Royal Worcester double-glazed Avignon china and Royal Doulton china with "the hand-painted periwinkles").

She ostentatiously brags about her eldest daughter Kourtney's relationship with boyfriend Scott Disick, as well as their two children, Mason and Penelope.

Since the series' premiere, the Kardashian sisters have established careers in the fashion industry, answering the ‘phone with "Fashion boutique D-A-S-H, a co-owner speaking." (Frequently, they receive calls asking for a Chinese take-away, which make them very angry.)
