Kris Jenner reportedly drunk dialed her ex-husband Bruce Jenner, and accused him of ruining her reputation with recent news of his transformation from a man to a woman. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians matriarch has yet to make a public statement about Bruce Jenner’s upcoming change, but it seems when she’s a bit boozed up, she has no problem expressing her feelings at all.
A source tells RadarOnline that on Wednesday night, “Kris called Bruce after 9 p.m., and sounded like she had been drinking. She was slurring her words.”
Her words seemingly weren’t kind ones either.
“Kris said she’s endured several weeks of negative press about her reaction to Bruce’s big sex change announcement, and she wants him to issue a statement insisting that she has been supportive,” the source explained. “Bruce is refusing to do it because Kris has been quite the opposite.”
“Kris seems to think Bruce has a secret vendetta against her for being so successful, and that he is attempting to ruin her reputation,” the source added. “This reaction isn’t surprising at all for Bruce, because Kris always makes everything about her. Kris has even instructed her daughter Kylie to not mention Bruce’s name in her house!”
Bruce apparently tired of listening to Kris Jenner and her drunken tirade, and simply hung up the phone.
Meanwhile, E! is getting ready to promote the upcoming tenth season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, but because of the present media frenzy about Bruce Jenner, the entire Kardashian-Jenner family has reportedly opted out of all press events. RadarOnline says they won’t discuss anything to do with Bruce until the show returns.
Kris Jenner is no doubt miffed at Bruce Jenner because he stands to make a bundle of money when his docu-drama, detailing his transition from a man to a woman, airs on E!. She probably wasn’t happy to learn that Diane Sawyer has landed an exclusive interview with Bruce that will air in May.

“I think everyone goes through things in life, and I think that story and what Bruce is going through, I think he’ll share whenever the time is right,” she said. “I feel like that’s his journey to talk about.”
Will Kris Jenner now try to undermine Bruce’s relationship with their kids? Or was she simply drunk and out of control when she called Bruce on Wednesday night?
What, exactly, does Kris Jenner think she stands to lose with Bruce going forward about his sexuality? Is she afraid people will wonder why she didn’t know about it? Or is she simply afraid that Bruce Jenner–who always took a back seat in the whole Keeping Up With the Kardashians empire–will suddenly be making more news (and that, of course, translated into making more money) than she is with her daughters and her show?
