Kris Jenner aspires to be an inspiration!

The matriarch of the Kardashian clan has been talking about her upcoming FOX-affiliate talk show, "Kris," and she says she's ready to inspire her viewers. In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Jenner said, "So many women give up in life when they get a little bit older. I want to be a positive influence. I want to come from a really good place. Some people are just lost, and maybe I can be an inspiration."

Of course, the talk also turned to her show's guest list, and the self-described "momager" dished some rather shocking news: She's not entirely ruling out inviting O.J. Simpson to appear on her daytime chat fest.

"I don't know. I just don't know," Jenner said when asked if she'd consider having Simpson as a guest on her show. "You know, it's very challenging because God asks us to forgive one another and to be kind to one another and to let Him do the judging. The Bible says don't judge anybody else. And I try to live by that. I try not to judge anybody. Am I devastated, am I confused, am I all the things that I felt since that morning when I found out that my girlfriend had been murdered? Yes. But it's taken me a long time to get to this place of where I need to let God judge him and not me."

Not even Oprah has been able to secure an interview with Simpson, but Jenner has connections: She was close friends with Simpson's slain ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and, to complicate matters, Jenner's first husband, Robert, headed up the former football pro's "Dream Team" defense team during his infamous murder trial.

Kris's Jenner's O.J. connection has also caused some people to speculate that Simpson is the biological father of her daughter Khloe, a rumor the Kardashian mom flatly denies: "That's 130 million percent untrue," she says. "People make up stories about two-headed aliens. That's ridiculous."

In happier times, O.J. was such a good friend of Kris's that he appeared in a campy music video in honor of her 30th birthday. The video, produced by Robert Kardashian, had Kris singing a song called "I Love My Friends" to the tune of Randy Newman's "I Love L.A." O.J. appears near the end of the video, touting Kris's love for her pals. You can see the video here.

"Kris" will begin a six-week trial run on July 15 on select Fox stations.
