Star in a Bollywood movie, integrate their fashion brand, open a nightclub, interior design an entire building, get to grips with the food and see the sights — the Kardashians will have their work cut out for them when they land in Dubai next month.

Eldest sibling Kim and her mum-cum-manager, Kris Jenner, are packed and ready for their first trip to the Middle East and had an important message for fans.

"We really appreciate our fans in the Middle East," said Jenner in an interview conducted in Los Angeles and given to tabloid! by "We're excited to come and have an adventure with them. We want to thank all the people who have tuned in, invested in us. At the end of the day, it's all about family."

In her first interview since agreeing to fly to Dubai, the reality star spilled all.


"When someone says ‘Dubai', I think of this glamorous place. I think about the fashion, about food. I think about just the culture over there — [it] is something that I'm so not used to. I just wanna go and embrace it.

"When I was first invited to Dubai, I was just so excited because it's a place I've just always wanted to go to. I've never been to the Middle East. This will be my first trip and I'm going with friends. I want to really just see the town."

Her reality show:

"My E! show will be following us to Dubai and the whole experience of coming [to] this country and seeing Dubai for the first time."

Dubai business plans:

"When I come I hope I can meet many amazing people. I want to make some new friends and that they can just take me around and just show me Dubai.

"I am so open to different business ventures. I'm a businesswoman, at the end of the day. I just wanna get out and see what it's all about. I'm so excited to bring my TV show so the US can really see what Dubai is really like and to kind of document my experience."


"I would love to be in a Bollywood movie. Every time I see a Bollywood film it seems so glamorous. My brother actually went to India once and came back with all this amazing jewellery and so many stories. I would love to go there."

The Arab world:

"I love Arabic food and I love Arabic music. I mean, I'm half Armenian so I love Middle Eastern food. I'm curious to see what the food will be like. I'm really hoping to be able to learn about the fashion. I'd love to take some of their influence back with me, I mean I have my own Kardashian collection clothing line so I would love fashion from another place to inspire me."

Dash :

"My sisters and I get asked all the time to open up a Dash store in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. I think it's just really important for me to see what it's like first. I don't wanna dive in too soon. I'd like to spend more time in Dubai and [will] hopefully open up a store there soon."

Millions of Milkshakes:

"I'm really excited to be launching my own shake, because I launched a shake in Los Angeles when Millions of Milkshakes first opened.

"I still can't decide on my milkshakes. I have two favourites. Maybe I'll talk my mum into picking one of them and I'll have the other one and that way I can have the best of both worlds."

Kris Jenner on:


"Salam United Arab Emirates! I am so excited. When we first got invited to Dubai, the first thing we could think of was how much we've heard about the city, the country, the culture. It's really fun for us to go somewhere new, because we can have quite an adventure and learn more.

"It's a part of the world which is really magical for us. We would love to one day create a business over there which we can really be passionate about. Things that spring to mind when someone says ‘Dubai' is skiing and the malls and the tallest building in the world."

Dubai wish:

"Obviously, the fashion industry is what we're really about right now but the real estate business is so intriguing to me. It's the one category we haven't really [explored] yet. It would be really fun to have a nightclub. Or have a building and design the rooms and things, because that sort of taps into the creativity and the fashion we love so much."


"A friend once told me, about 30 years ago, find out what you really want to do in this world and then figure out a way to get paid for it. Find your passion. Do what you love to do."

Final word:

"My best advice to the kids was always this — if someone says no, then you're talking to the wrong person. Don't let anyone tell you that you can't achieve something."

Don't miss it: The Kardashians will open the Millions of Milkshakes store in The Dubai Mall on October 14.
