Kris Jenner on her Ex-Husband Becoming a Woman, Selling Out Her Family & Haters in Harper’s Bazaar Interview



Kris Jenner_Harpers Bazaar_1Harper’s Bazaar interviewed the legendary Kris Jenner, 60, in the presence of her boyfriend Corey Gamble, 35.

The two-time divorcee and mogul (she managed her family from obscurity to fame with her shrewd business decisions) speaks on her family legacy and relationships in this new interview, titled “Target Practice”.

About Bruce Jenner, who was her Husband for 23 Years
“I think at some point, although it was difficult and, uh, a challenge … I just have to let it go. And try to be tolerant,” Kris says. How?

“Prayer. God. You know, just trying to understand. It takes time. But time is a wonderful healer. And we have two children together. It’s important for my kids to see our family strong and united.”

I ask Kris if, before Caitlyn’s transition, she knew any transgender people or had an opinion about it.

“I never really thought about it before,” she says. “And I’d never known anyone who was transgender. I didn’t even know what the word meant. Because there’s transgender and transsexual, and there’s …” A pause. “I mean, I just didn’t know much about it. So …” She smiles. “I definitely got a big education.”

Did She Doubt Herself as a Woman After That?
“No, I never. Thank God, I never doubted myself. I never really doubted my femininity. I just doubted the relationship. You know, ‘What were those 20-plus years all about?’ And I felt like, at some point anybody would feel like, ‘Wow, why was I put through this? For 20 years I could have been, you know, doing something else.’ But I really do believe everything happens for a reason.” And the reason, in this case, was Kendall and Kylie, the children she had with Bruce.

Was Robert Kardashian ‘The Love of Her Life’?
In Kris’s memoir, Kris Jenner…and All Things Kardashian, which was published in 2011, she describes Bruce Jenner, not her ex-husband Robert Kardashian, who passed away from cancer in 2003, as the love of her life. Does she still feel that way?

The short answer: No.Kris Jenner_Harpers Bazaar_2She says the only regret she has is her divorce from Robert, the father of her four older children. “I had a wonderful, beautiful life with Robert. He was just an amazing man,” she explains, adding that as she went through the Bruce/Caitlyn thing, she wished she could call him, to have a solid shoulder to lean, or maybe, cry on. “I always wish I could call Robert right now. That’s an everyday thing.”

About Keeping Up with The Kardashians – the show is now 9 years old – And If She Exploited Her Family
When I ask Kris about the biggest slam against her, that she sold out her family for fame, she removes her Céline reading glasses and stares straight into my eyes.

“Nooooo,” she replies. “I made and created a show that my family was all on board with, and we were so excited because we got to work together.”

Does she ever wonder if there would be such vitriol if it had been Bruce, or even Robert, who came up with what is surely an unprecedented and hugely successful family industry?

“I think there’s definitely an attitude when a woman accomplishes anything,” Kris says. “But I also think people are very jealous. Or are bitter and angry about their own lives. So maybe they don’t have anything else to do but be nasty and criticize someone else. That sounds like a simple answer, but I don’t think it’s much deeper than that. And there are so many millions of people who are great to us that I can’t worry about some idiot in Oklahoma.” She smiles and glances at the piles of gifts that surround her. “You just have to have a thick skin and say, ‘That poor person, I feel sorry for you.’ ”

How Does She Feel About the Haters?
“Here’s the thing,” she says. “We have literally millions and millions of fans. I mean, even Kendall and Kylie have 50 million followers on Instagram—apiece. That’s a hundred million people you have somehow touched emotionally, enough to follow you on a social-media platform. And I think with that also comes, you know, haters. But in comparison, like I tell my family, they’re such a small percentage. We wouldn’t be around for 12 seasons as a television show if there was that much negativity.”

    Kris is the definition of tough skin. Without that she would have hung herself by now. I cannot help but admire her.

    You can hate this woman but what you can’t take away from her, is her strength and will to overcome whatever life throws at her. I’m beginning to see Toke in the same light.

      She’s right, you’re the one who should do the math. 50M+50M = 100M. Now if she said 500M, then she would have been wrong.

      Lol. Sorry AA but actually, Jaygirl is right. Just because they each have 50 mill followers doesnt mean they have touched a total of 100 million different people. As Jaygirl said, think about it! It could be the same people following both Kylie and Kendall. The only way we could say for certain that 50mill kylie followers + 50 mill kendall flowers = 100 million different people is if everyone on instagram was restricted to following just one person. As this isnt the case, the only thing we can say for certain is 50 million kylie followers + 50 million kendal followers = somewhere between 50 million and a 100 million different people. Simple math as Jaygirl said :).
