Playing Move Over Kris Jenner! Kim Kardashian Says She's the 'Puppet Master' Behind Her Famous Family

Looks like the Kardashian family has Kim Kardashian to thank for their success in more ways than one.

In a new interview with Editorialist magazine, Kim takes credit for the family's enduring popularity and impressive business moves, brushing aside her mother, Kris Jenner.

"It's so funny, because I'll hear stories like, 'Kris Jenner is the puppet master, having all of her kids do this and that,' and I'm like, 'If they only knew,'" Kim says. "I'm the one that will be like, 'Kylie, do this. Kendall, you should do this.'"

"I love when I get the chance to talk about the business side of my life, because it plays a HUGE role in what I do every day," she also says.

The 35-year-old reality superstar also shared sexy swimsuit pics from the magazine's photoshoot on her website and app, donning a plunging black one-piece. The pics were shot by longtime fashion photographer, Gilles Bensimon, who America's Next Top Model fans will recognize from his work on the show.

When ET caught up with Kim's younger sisters in June, 20-year-old Kendall Jenner and 18-year-old Kylie Jenner, the two readily admitted to finding inspiration from their older sisters.

“Growing up around them and they are pretty stylish... we learn from them,” Kendall said about their fashion sense, while promoting her and Kylie’s clothing collection at the PacSun store in Santa Monica, California.

"I love Kim's style right now," Kylie added.

Kim's also well aware of the comparisons especially between herself and Kylie, and in June, she told ET that she loves their similarities.

"She is the best, you know?" Kim smiled. "She's my little twin soul. She's such a free spirit, and I love that. She's the sweetest."

Though in a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim did lecture Kylie about being "professional" at her husband Kaye West's fashion show, where Kylie walked the runway in September.

"I’ve been hearing things like Kylie makes people wait because she’s on her phone, or if she’s at photoshoots, she brings a ton of friends," Kim said. "So, I just want Kylie to know, just because Kanye’s family, this isn’t like, a casual situation. She has to be really professional and go with the flow.”
