Old School Pic: My Nana

December 5, 2008 / 84 Comments

This old school pic is of me and my grandmother. We always called her “Nana.” She is my Dad’s mother and her real name is Helen Kardashian.

She passed away earlier this year…

Once my father passed away, she was never the same. She had three children, my aunt Barbara, my uncle Tommy then the baby of the bunch… my dad!

My grandmother is full Armenian. It’s actually very typical to have blond hair and light eyes being full Armenian. This is where Khloe gets her coloring from, in case you have been wondering.

Nana was seriously so much fun! She lived right near my parents growing up and also had a house in Palm Springs that we always spent so much time at.

She was your typical Armenian grandmother: always cooking the best Armenian meals, our favorite which was this Armenian breakfast called “beeshe”! I’m not sure if that’s even how you spell it but it’s basically a fried pancake with lots of sugar on top!

She passed along the recipe but Kourtney is the only one in our entire Kardashian family who has mastered it. So every year in December my dad’s side of the family gets together and Kourtney makes it for us all!

I miss my Nana so much!

Cici is my style guru

My cousin Cici (far left) styled the jewels on my mom here. Jeweler Lynn Tran (far right).

Have you noticed my Mom’s fabulous jewelry she has been wearing on Dancing With the Stars while fulfilling her duties as correspondent for ET and The Insider? She reminds me of a modern day Liz Taylor!

My cousin Cici is a fashion and jewelry stylist and is responsible for selecting my Mom’s incredible jewelry! Cici has an incredible sense of style! She is like an encyclopedia on fashion and design! We can talk fashion for hours!

Cici’s mentor, my Grandma Helen Kardashian, was a fixture on Rodeo Drive and on best dressed lists in Beverly Hills for years!

Cici’s life-long love and passion for fashion is amazing! I always love to see what she is wearing! She loves coming to my house and looking in my closet!

The jewels are gorgeous and Cici’s swears by Jewels by JT. I love their pieces too!

Check out pictures of my mom wearing the jewelry and there is an extra picture of me wearing a set of beautiful JT earrings. Talk about bling!
