Keeping Up With the Kardashian star Kris Jenner fears her grandchildren will be bullied as they grow up in the public eye.

The 61-year-old reality star said in an interview published Monday with The Hollywood Reporter that she worries about daughter Kim Kardashian's children, North and Saint West, and her four other grandkids because of her family's fame.

"It's my grandchildren who I worry about because I have six of them; the oldest just turned 7, and my youngest is 6 months old, and they don't have a choice [about celebrity]," she said. "And I worry, I do, because it is such a bullying environment."

Jenner is also grandmother to Kourtney Kardashian's kids, Mason, Penelope and Reign Disick, and Rob Kardashian's daughter, Dream Kardashian. She and her family have starred on 13 seasons of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

"We decided as a family that if we're going to do this, we would just show everything," the star said of not removing controversial or embarrassing footage from the show. "With that philosophy, I told the kids, 'Don't get on the Internet' ... You know, haters are gonna hate. You expect it now."

"Kim leads the pack, and she's the queen of thick skin," she added. "She counsels everybody else. So if something happens in the family, she's the first one you call. 'What should I do? How should I handle this?'"

Jenner told New You Media in May 2016 that spending time with her grandkids is her favorite "indulgence" after traveling, saying, "I think that's why I had so many kids to begin with—I truly enjoy it."

Keeping Up With the Kardashians completed a 13th season Sunday. Jenner's daughter Khloe Kardashian divulged during the episode that her boyfriend Tristan Thompson wants to have "five or six" kids with her.
