Kris Jenner name back kardashian

Kris Jenner says she’s changing her name back to Kardashian in a scene deleted from the upcoming episode of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” If for nothing else, the family matriarch reveals the Kardashian name helps her get reservations at restaurants. See the video below.

The idea of possibly going back to her first married name is broached while in a car with Khloe Kardashian, who asks Jenner for her contact for reservations at her mom’s favorite Mexican restaurant, Casa Vega. “I call the manager usually, and I say, ‘Hey! It’s Kris Kardashian,'” says Jenner, which prompts Khloe to note, “Your name isn’t Kris Kardashian.” Very causally, Jenner responds, “I’m going to change my name back to Kardashian.”

But Khloe wants to know “Why?” adding, “You haven’t been that in over 24 years.” Jenner shoots back, “I was that before you were that. I was the original Kardashian.” Khloe replies, “I don’t care if you were that. That’s bizarre,” and offers, “Why don’t you go back to your maiden name?” But Jenner says her maiden name of Houghton “just doesn’t sound right.”

Khloe suggests, “Keep Kris Jenner,” and points out, “Don’t you think that’s insulting to your two daughters?” Jenner then snipes, “If Bruce can change his name to Caitlyn, I think I’m good.” Check out the video below of Kris Jenner saying in a deleted “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” scene that she’s changing her last name back to Kardashian.
