Kris Jenner and her mother-in-law Esther Jenner have never particularly cared for one another. In Kris’ 22 years of marriage to Bruce Jenner, she says she’s only met his 87-year-old mother four times. But the times they are a’changing.
In the latest episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” Bruce asked Kris to visit his mom in Idaho. Kris refused, so Bruce had Esther come to them instead.
Though the two women refused to speak at first, Bruce eventually got his mom to warm up to Kris. And, what do you know, they started seeing eye-to-eye — at least, they did once Esther apologized for not getting closer to Kris in the past.
“I really wanted a little time with you,” Esther tells Kris in the episode. “We haven’t been too close in any way. I’m so sorry for that. I wish I could have been closer.” Kris responds, “It was very complicated, a lot of personalities in the mix.”
Esther continues, “I felt like I should stay away, and I have. But it’s not right. You’re Bruce’s wife. And the longest marriage he’s had. You’ve been good for him.”
“Wow, I’ve waited 23 years for this.” Kris says. “Better late than never.”
That will likely make Bruce’s life much, much easier.
