Kris Jenner, Momager Extraordinaire, Has Body Issues Too


In a bizarre moment of realness on her family’s notoriously ham-it-up-for-the-cameras reality show, Kris Jenner admitted she was upset about her aging body and looks on the latest edition of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. What did her daughters Kim and Kourtney do about her tender revelation? Make fun of her, and then call her “dramatic” and “weird.”

Let’s start from the top of the episode: the entire extended family was flown out to Bora Bora for a tropical vacation where they’d get to know Kim’s new beau Kris Humphries and lip-sync to Katy Perry songs. Unbeknownst to Kris, Bruce and his daughters had planned a very special surprise into their trip: a renewal of vows for the pair on their 20th anniversary. Kris was distraught — thinking only of how she used to look when she married Bruce the first time — and when it was time to go shopping for clothes for the event, she broke down crying; a moment that E! sensitively edited to splice old photos of her bikini body of yore. (Classy touch.)

Kim and Kourtney don’t understand why she’s so upset by the comparison to their own svelte bodies, and they likely won’t until its 20 years from now. It’s also funny how Khloe, the daughter who’s most-often poked fun at because of her weight (often by Kris herself) was notably absent. We figure she wouldn’t have been able to keep her anger at bay at Kris’ hypocritical tears. Guess managing the careers of your three famous daughters isn’t all its cracked up to be?
