Kris Jenner Once Revealed Her Only Marriage Regret Was Her First Divorce

Kris Jenner, the matriarch of the Kardashian clan, has opened up about how she is handling Caitlyn Jenner's transition and revealed her only marriage regret.

During an interview with Harper's Bazaar, the TV personality shared that she never saw it coming and, although difficult, she is taking it step-by-step. Baby steps, to be exact.

According to Kris, who was at Caitlyn's home quite recently, at some point, it was difficult and challenging to accept her ex-husband's choice and took time to fully comprehend it.

She said:

"I never really thought about it before. And I'd never known anyone who was transgender. I didn't even know what the word meant. Because there's transgender and transsexual, and there's ... I mean, I just didn't know much about it. So, I definitely got a big education."

Kris explained that she turned to prayer and God for help and guidance, adding that time is a "wonderful healer." The former couple was together 23 years and now share two daughters, Kylie and Kendall Jenner.

During the interview, Kris said that, despite all the changes and challenges, the most important thing to her is for her children to see and feel that their family is strong and united.


Neither Kris nor Caitlyn regret marrying each other, but the former confessed that her only regret when it comes to relationships was to divorce Robert Kardashian, her first husband.

The couple called it quits in 1991 after tying the knot in 1978, and, 12 years later, Robert passed away after being diagnosed with esophageal cancer.

Although she described the late 59-year-old as the love of her life in her 2011 memoir, "Kris Jenner... and All Things Kardashian," she said that she no longer feels that way. Kris also admits they had a wonderful life together and that he was an "amazing man."


Nowadays, Kris seems to be quite happy with her much younger boyfriend Corey Gamble, who is a regular feature in "Keeping Up With The Kardashians."

The two have never been very open about their relationship but, slowly but surely, they are making more and more public appearances together, and the 25 years between seem to make no difference to them.
