As part of the preview for an upcoming interview on her life, Kris Jenner said cheating on Robert Kardashian is ‘one of the biggest regrets in my life’.
In an interview with Fox New’s OBJECTified, Kris Jenner discussed her entire life story, including her marriage to Robert Kardashian, who she was married to from 1978 to 1991 and with whom she had four kids: Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob. After Kardashian, she married Caitlyn Jenner (now Bruce Jenner) and had Kendall and Kylie. The entire interview with Harvey Lenin will air later but the previews show Jenner talking about her infidelity towards Kardashian, a topic she does not seldom touch on during interviews.
She said, “I married Robert when I was 22 years old and I got pregnant on my honeymoon — I had the happiest life you could’ve dreamt about. But when you’re in something, sometimes people think the grass is always greener and that was like what I think I went through at some point.”
She also talked about cheating on Kardashian with soccer player Todd Waterman. Talking about the incident, she said, “Which wasn’t — nothing I’m proud of. When I look back on it now, probably one of my biggest regrets in my life is that that marriage fell apart.”
She also admitted that despite her mistakes, it came as a shock to her when Kardashian filed for divorce, saying, “Because it made it real. Like, you think you’re going to come through this period — that was really hard for me.”
Not only was it a blow to her personal life, but also her financial one. Jenner had been financially dependent on Kardashian, a businessman and attorney, but he did not support her after the divorce. She said, “I didn’t have anything. I went to the market one day and my credit card didn’t work. I had a market credit card and I’m like, ‘I can’t even buy a tomato.’”
Jenner also addressed another topic which the family has avoided speaking too much about: Kim Kardashian’s sex tape. Jenner said, “You know I can’t control what other people say and obviously that was a hard thing to go through,” when asked whether she believed claims that it was the tape that shot her daughters to fame.
The momager also shared how the pressure to appear together and perfect all the time affects her as well. She said that she tries never to leave the house without makeup, saying, “It’s not that it’s off-brand. Here’s what happens: If I go, like, to the market and I have no makeup on in my sweats, then you have all those people who go, ‘Will you just take one picture?’ And then you’ve got this picture, because of the negativity, posted on the internet going, ‘Doesn’t Kris Jenner look like s—t today?’ Or, you know, ‘She’s old.’ I don’t want any negative stuff. So that’s kind of a drag.”
The actual interview will air on Sunday.
