Kris and Caitlyn Jenner, although divorced, seem to be on good terms. It’s not all roses for Kris, however, who’s gone on record saying she misses Bruce. The couple was married for more than 20 years, according to Us Weekly, but after Caitlyn decided to transition, Kris filed for divorce last September.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Kris Jenner believes her family is “cursed” when it comes to relationships – herself included. “I just miss Bruce. And that’s going to take me a minute to mourn that relationship,” Kris said in the Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce special. “You think you’re going to grow old with somebody, and they drastically change over the course of just a few years.”
Although Kris Jenner knew Caitlyn had received hormones back in the early ’80s, Kris confessed that as far as she was concerned, “there wasn’t a gender issue. Nobody mentioned a gender issue.” According to People magazine, Kris Jenner might have been in denial about Caitlyn’s desire to transition. Although Kris denies ever seeing Bruce dress in women’s clothing, Caitlyn Jenner disagrees, insisting that Kris knew she would dress in women’s clothing.
While the couple can’t agree on that point, they can agree that they still have a mutual love for each other. “I still love you, baby,” Caitlyn told Kris during the E! special. “Is there anything I can do now to make [the transition] better for you?” Kris replied that she wanted Caitlyn to “live the happiest life you can live. That’s all I care about. That you can find the peace you’ve been looking for for so long.”
The reality star now has her own show, I Am Cait, which recently premiered to rave reviews, but the couple discussed Caitlyn’s decision to transition on the E! special, Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce. With I Am Cait premiering to rave reviews, Kris has been asked what she thinks of Caitlyn’s transition. The reality star told Extra when asked about Caitlyn that she thinks “someone following their dream is truly inspirational to a lot of people … you have to do what makes you happy.”
I Am Cait follows Caitlyn Jenner as she lives her live post transition. In the first episode, Caitlyn meets her children and their families for the first time. In one scene, Caitlyn, while sorting through her closet with Kim Kardashian, realizes she owns the same Tom Ford dress as Kris Jenner. “Who wore it best? Oh, we got to do that,” Caitlyn jokes to Kim. “It’ll be the funniest thing ever,” reports Us Weekly.
