WATCH: Kris Jenner Wants to Change Her Last Name Back to Kardashian
“I was the original Kardashian.”After 24 years as Kris Jenner, the Kardashian matriarch is ready for a change. Taking a cue from her friend Yolanda Hadid, Kris wants to return to her first married name Kris Kardashian and daughter Khloe Kardashian is not here for it.
In a deleted Keeping Up with the Kardashians scene, Kris explains to Khloe that when she makes reservations she uses the name, Kris Kardashian. Khloe is understandably confused telling her mother, “Your name isn’t Kris Kardashian.”
Kris then explains that she’s going to change her name back to Kardashian, insisting she was the “original” Kardashian. Khloe asks why Kris wouldn’t just use her maiden name (Houghton), but she insists it “doesn’t sound right.” When Khloe then points out that changing her name might be a little disrespectful to her daughters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Kris replies, “If Bruce can change his name to Caitlyn, I think I’m good.”
Yea, we don’t think that’s the way it works Kris.
This isn’t the first time Kris has contemplated changing her last name back to Kardashian. During her marriage to Caitlyn Jenner, Kris said she wanted to change her name back to Kardashian for business purposes. In an episode of KUWTK, Caitlyn along with daughters Kendall and Kylie explained how hurt they were that she would consider distancing herself from them. Kris decided to not to change her last name, but with her ex-husband out of the picture, it may just happen this time around.
