Kris Jenner is undoubtedly best known as the mother to Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian, as well as Robert Kardashian, Jr., and Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Born Kristen Mary Houghton in California on November 5, 1955, she wed lawyer Robert Kardashian in 1978. They divorced in 1991 after she had an affair, one she has since said she regrets.
Jenner was best friends with Nicole Brown Simpson, but remained somewhat close to Robert Kardashian even as he worked on O.J. Simpson’s murder defense team. She was devastated upon the attorney’s death from esophageal cancer in 2003. Following their divorce, however, Jenner went on to wed Bruce Jenner, and blended their families to an extent, as the Olympic god medalist also had sons and a daughter of his own from prior marriages.
The Jenner-Kardashians started their own reality show, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” in 2007, and Jenner became a “momager” overseeing her daughters’ careers as their fame grew exponentially. Jenner, who is also now a grandmother of four through Kim and Kourtney, established her own brand for a short time with the “Kris” talk show, and released a cookbook in 2014. Jenner has been quite open about undergoing plastic surgery, some of which was documented on the family’s reality series. She and Bruce separated in 2013, but didn’t file for divorce for another year. The proceedings are expected to be finalized in 2015. Jenner is currently dating Corey Gamble, who is in the music business.
