Kris Jenner Makes a Difficult Confession on ‘The Kardashians’

Kris Jenner has been taking a lot of heat from her family this season on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” ever since she bumped into her former lover Todd Waterman.

He’s the man she had an affair with 23 years ago, which ended her marriage to Robert Kardashian. Bruce and her kids, particularly Kourtney, were outraged that Kris gave Waterman her email address and would even considering seeing him again after how destructive things turned out.

But Kris defied logic and obvious consequences and went ahead and met Todd for dinner and drinks on Sunday night’s episode. She claimed she wanted to get some “closure.”

Realizing that the spark with Todd wasn’t there anymore, Kris thought it smart to tell Bruce that she sneaked behind his back and had dinner with her ex-lover.

“I wanted to tell you that tonight I realize I really appreciate you a little more,” Kris said. “I may have been fantasizing about somebody for the last 23 years that didn’t really deserve that kind of recognition.”

Huh. And how did her husband of 21 years react to her admission that she’s been carrying a torch for another man for two decades?

“What an idiot you are!” Bruce replied. Furious, he added: “I don’t even know how I can trust you!”

Later in the episode, in true over-the-top Kardashian style, Kris took a lie detector test to prove she wasn’t still in love with Waterman. She passed. Then her favorite child Kim sent Kris and Bruce off on a romantic getaway to rekindle their relationship.
