Get to Know Your Celebrity Blabbermouth: Bruce Jenner's Sister Lisa
That is, unless your Bruce’s younger sis Lisa Jenner.
“I knew nothing about it,” Lisa told Celebuzz. “My contact with my brother has been limited.”
But even though this news is news to her, she saw a split coming.
“It’s not a surprise,” she added, thinking of how best to elaborate.
“Because of how surreal and crazy life is down there [in Los Angeles],” said Lisa, 47, who once called California home before opting for the country life in Idaho where she works in property management.
“I went to school in California, but got away from the city as soon as I could.”
You’d think like the millions of people who are glued to their TV screens to watch every move of reality TVs first family, Lisa would probably be one of them.
But you’d be wrong.
“I really don’t like the show,” she admitted. “I don’t watch the show.”
So what were her first impressions? Once again, she carefully couched her thoughts: “I don’t know. Bruce seemed to love her a lot.”
Well, now the 63-year-old athlete-turned-TV dad may have more time to catch up with his long lost sibling. But Lisa’s not counting on it.
“We’ve tried from time-to-time [to stay in touch]. But I like the quiet life,” she said.
“He’s a really busy guy.
“He was off in college when I was in diapers. There’s about a 16-year difference between the two of us. He was out of school and off to college when I was 2-years-old.”
Instead, she gets tidbits about her star sibling through other family members, including their mother, Esther, who often speaks with the Olympian but (as seen on the reality show) has never been close to Kris.
“Divorce is a horrible thing no matter what,” added Lisa, “for my brother or people to go through.”
