Kris Jenner is thinking of changing her name to Kardashian again
Kris Jenner is tired of being a Jenner. That’s right — she wants to adopt the name Kris Kardashian after more than 24 years (!!!). In a deleted scene from Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kris dropped the news to a very shocked Khloe, who was only wondering who she called to get reservations at their favorite Mexican restaurant.
“I call the manager usually and I say, ‘Hey! It’s Kris Kardashian,’” Kris said.
“Your name isn’t Kris Kardashian,” her daughter responds.
“I’m going to change my name back to Kardashian,” Kris explains. But Khloe, confused, asks, “Why? You haven’t been that in over 24 years.”
“I was that before you were that,” Kris tells her. “I was the original Kardashian.”
But Khloe was adamant, telling her mom that she should instead use her maiden name instead. But Kris said it “just doesn’t sound right.”
So Khloe tried a new tactic. “Keep Kris Jenner,” she told her mother. “Don’t you think that’s insulting to your two daughters?”
Then, Kris cracked a joke about her ex Caitlyn Jenner, saying, “If Bruce can change his name to Caitlyn, I think I’m good.”
While that last joke is tone-deaf — using the birth name of a transgender person against their wishes and misgendering them is hurtful and certainly not supportive — we’re happy Kris is changing her name if that’s something she wants to do. Names can be an important way to establish your personal identity, and you should *love* your name. Just make sure to call Caitlyn by the right one, OK, Kris?
