While their kids and their fans are saddened by the break-up of their long marriage, there is one person who is happy to see that Bruce Jenner and Kris Jenner are no longer going to be a couple; Bruce’s mother! It seems that Jenner’s mother, 88-year-old Esther Jenner, is not a fan of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, more importantly; she’s not a fan of her ex daughter-in-law, and she has some choice phrases to use when describing the woman to whom her son was married for several years (not to mention the mother of her two granddaughters).
“I don’t think she treated anybody very well. She could insult you with a big smile on her face. What do you do with a person like that? You’re going to avoid them if possible. She was backstabbing as far as my grandchildren were concerned, and that is something I can’t stand. She’s domineering – it’s do it her way, or there’s no way. I had very little to do with Kris. I stayed away from her as much as I could,” said the former Olympians mother. She even goes so far as to agree with the interviewer her asked her if Jenner is a “controlling monster.”
If that’s not a harsh enough opinion, Esther Jenner goes on to say she’d like Kris Jenner to change her name to that of her former husband because she doesn’t “want her to carry the name.” She then tells reporters that Jenner is an awful mother.
“Kris never cooked while Kendall and Kylie were growing up. She was always running out to eat with her girlfriends and she left Bruce to take care of the two babies and he did. The only one I ever saw change the diapers was Bruce, I never saw Kris do it. Kris hasn’t bothered to bring up Kendall and Kylie, but Bruce has brought them up, thank God,” she said of Jenner – harsh words for a grandmother to use when she knows her grandchildren will read this information about their mother.
She is, however, proud of her granddaughters.
