E! has been teasing us for WEEKS about this one, and now the actual clip of Kris and Caitlyn Jenner meeting for the first time is finally here! The exes meet up at Caitlyn’s home for a chat, and things go from friendly to awkward real fast. Watch now!
Kris, 59, and Caitlyn Jenner, 65, aren’t together anymore, but for the sake of their kids, Kendall and Kylie, they’re trying to maintain a friendly relationship — but that doesn’t mean things don’t get tense. Their very first meeting was filmed for I Am Cait, and E! has released the awkward clip ahead of the show’s Sept. 6 episode. Watch it here!
Before Kris — whose cookbook you can buy here — arrives at her house, Caitlyn appears very anxious. “I don’t know if we’ll resolve anything or whatever,” she tells the camera. “But I just probably should get some things off my chest and probably her too. We did have a lot of great times. We’ve moved on, both of us, but I don’t want to throw the good times away. So for the kids, Kendall and Kylie, I don’t want tension. I don’t want to put them in a tough position. This is really very, very difficult.”
Initially, though, Caitlyn is momentarily put at ease, when she opens the door to a smiling Kris, and the pair even share an embrace. “Look at you!” the Kardashian momager gushes. “Nice shoes!” She even brings a housewarming gift — fresh cookies! But things tense up a bit as they head into the kitchen to get down to business.
The clip cuts off before we hear any of the exes’ convo, but from previous previews shown, we know things get really intense. “You’re sensitive and amazing to all those new people in your life, but you’re not sensitive and amazing to the family you left behind,” Kris says, through tears.
The conversation eventually turns to Caitlyn’s Vanity Fair article, which Kris slams because the former Olympian said in it that her family was a ‘distraction.’ “Don’t go there,” Caitlyn warns her ex. “This is not the issue. I was defending myself. It was a distraction from who I was. It doesn’t mean I didn’t love you or the kids.”
We’ll have to wait until I Am Cait airs on Sept. 6 at 8 p.m. to find out how this all turns out! But, HollywoodLifers, let us know: What do you think of Caitlyn and Kris’ first face-to-face meeting? Do you think they’ll end up being friends?
