“I think one of the most interesting things is that we realized that none of us even thought he was going to face something like that.
We didn’t know how to process all that, and it was a lot. First, it was a shock, and then it became a reality. It became something we had to accept, understand and start learning.”, said Kris Jenner.
Kris admits that this period was extremely difficult for the whole family and although she had the greatest respect for Caitlyn, at first it wasn’t at all easy for her to deal with the whole situation.
Kris emphasizes that today she and 71-year-old Caitlyn are in a good relationship and there is great mutual respect between them.
“I’m sure many people who love our show didn’t expect it and were confused… Because you can see the transition in so many ways. I think then we lived from day to day. Honestly, I had no experience with anything like that, so I was just trying to understand her better.
I’m the mother of our children so it was difficult for me because I wanted to be a good parent and make the right decisions but then I wasn’t sure what was right and what wasn’t.
She is the father of two of my children, and that says a lot.”, said Kris.
