The Kardashian momager revealed in an interview with Billy Bush on Access Hollywood that she is still getting used to the new female identity of her ex-husband. When asked if she calls Caitlyn by her first name, Kris revealed that she does not and uses a workaround until she eventually feels comfortable using her new name.
“I say ‘Jenner,'” Kris told Bush, explaining that Caitlyn’s transition has been difficult on the family. “What I have realized in all of this is that everyone handles stuff a different way. No matter what it is, you know. We’re all people. We all have different emotions.”
Kris adds that she is getting to know Caitlyn slowly. “I just thought she would be a little bit different,” Kris said. “Bruce had a distinct personality and, you know, had definite characteristics. And Caitlyn has some different ones, I feel.”
Time will tell if the women will ever be the couch curling-up girlfriends that Bush idealizes in his interview, but Kris notes that they are taking baby steps.
“She came over for a drink last night, and that was nice.”
