Kris Jenner’s Defense For Changing Her Name Back To Kardashian Isn’t Great

Watch out, world! Kris Kardashian wants to make a comeback. 

The Kardashian matriarch, who currently uses the last name Jenner, revealed that she wants to take back her first husband’s surname. 

In a deleted scene from “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” the 60-year-old momager nonchalantly brings up the topic while she’s riding in a car with her daughter Khloe. While explaining that she sometimes uses the Kardashian last name on the phone, Khloe cuts her mom’s story short to say, “Your name isn’t Kris Kardashian.”

“I’m going to change my name back to Kardashian,” Kris responds. 

Clearly, Khloe isn’t impressed with the decision. 

“Why? You haven’t been that in over 24 years.”

Kris then reminds her daughter that she had the Kardashian name long before Khloe or her siblings, Kim, Kourtney and Rob, came along.  

“I don’t care if you were that, that’s bizarre,” Khloe snaps back. “Why don’t you go back to your maiden name?” 

Despite the fact that Khloe thinks Kris’ decision could seem insulting to her youngest daughters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Kris says she doesn’t think her maiden name “sounds right.” 

Then comes the kicker, which is, for lack of a better word, problematic: “If Bruce can change his name to Caitlyn, I think I’m good.”

Sigh. A trans person changing her name to accurately reflect her gender identity and journey forward as her authentic self is not the same as you wanting to change your last name, Kris. But you do you.

This isn’t the first time Kris said she was changing her name. In Season 6, Episode 3, the reality TV star told her then-spouse, formerly Bruce Jenner (who now goes by Caitlyn after coming out as transgender), that she wanted to go back to Kardashian, which naturally left her upset.

We can’t keep up anymore.
