Kris and Caitlyn Jenner Try to Take a ‘Positive Step’ In Their Relationship in New ‘KUWTK’ Promo
Kris Jenner and her ex, Caitlyn Jenner, have had a tumultuous relationship following their divorce and Caitlyn’s subsequent transition, but the former couple is trying to take positive, reconciliatory steps on this week’s new Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
In this brief sneak peek at the upcoming episode, Caitlyn visits Kris at her home, and she brings along a manuscript of her new memoir. It’s clear that things are still tense between the two — who were married for nearly 14 years — but they both are trying to come to terms with the nature of their relationship.
Although Caitlyn doesn’t make things easy when the first question she asks is about a gun she left in the house when she moved out.
“I asked you the day you left, ‘Is there anything you want to take with you?’ And you said, ‘No,'” Kris says, sounding annoyed. “I said, ‘You don’t want a picture? You don’t want a memory? You don’t want a candle? You don’t want a glass?’… And now you want a gun?”
“The only problem I have with the gun is it’s registered under my old name,” Caitlyn explains. “I’ve gotta get that changed. I’ve got everything changed.”
Caitlyn’s explanation prompts Kris to ask her a more pointed question about whether or not she’d consider undergoing gender confirmation surgery, but Caitlyn isn’t interested in having that conversation.
“You know what? Don’t even go down this road because I’m not talking about it,” Caitlyn says.
However, that isn’t the only question Kris has about her ex’s transformation, and the years they spent together when Caitlyn was still living as Bruce Jenner.
“You know what I was gonna tell you? I always wondered why you peed sitting down,” Kris shares.
“When you’re struggling with your identity, there’s little things you can do [that] just make you feel better about yourself,” Caitlyn explains.
“It was kind of perfect,” Kris replies. “Because I never had to yell at you for not putting the seat down.”
The pair also exchange small talk about their personal lives, but it’s evident that they both felt a bit on the defensive.
Talking about her day-to-day hectic schedule, Kris jokes, “I’m like a fireman. All I do is put out fires, all day long. That’s my job. I’m gonna get one of those yellow suits and a hose.”
Caitlyn suggests that Kris should come over to her house, where she can relax and enjoy the view.
“Well, any time you want some action, you can just come here, and it’s chaos 24/7,” Kris notes.
“Those were the old days when I came here for action,” Caitlyn quips.
Despite their somewhat bitter past and their guarded demeanor, Kris can’t help but be optimistic about what their little get-together represents.
“I think it’s a really positive step in a great direction,” Kris says in a solo interview.
However, as we’ve seen in other sneak peeks, Kris has something of a change of heart when she reads Caitlyn’s memoir and finds quite a few things to get outraged over.
