A lot has happened to TV's royal family since the season finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians—and the Season 12 premiere did not disappoint. Along with addressing the initial weirdness of Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian's relationship, as well as where Kourtney stood on getting back together with Scott, the premiere also showed a super intimate and huge falling out between Khloé Kardashian and Caitlyn Jenner.
Earlier this year, while promoting her now-canceled show Kocktails with Khloé, the reality star did an interview with Howard Stern in which she ended up delving into the fact that she "felt betrayed" by Caitlyn after finding out that her "business people knew" about her transition before her family. After the interview aired, Caitlyn inundated Khloé with angry and aggressive text messages, allegedly criticizing her for even talking about the transition in the first place. This prompted Khloé to call Mama Kris in a rage.
"I said, 'You slaughtered my mother and you have the nerve to say what happened to family sticking together?," Khloé said to her mom. "I said, 'You jumped that ship as soon as you did Diane Sawyer and attacked my mom,' and instead, [she] tells me to 'get a life' and to 'shut up,' and I'm like, 'You shut up and you get a f--king life.'"
"Mom, can you handle this?," she continued. "She can tell me to f--k off all she wants. I don't have a relationship with her. I'm done."
Being the expert momager she is, Mama Kris later called Caitlyn to try and smooth things over—but at first, Caitlyn wouldn't hear any of it.
"She's out there talkin' s--t about me," Caitlyn told Kris over the phone. "I don't want her talking about me, OK? You don't go on Howard Stern and call me a liar...Why is she even talking about it?"
In return, Kris pointed out that Khloé isn't the only one to have said less-than-favorable things about the family to the press, and that it wasn't fair of her to get so pissed at Khloé.
"What do you think I said to you about Vanity Fair?," Kris responds. "You f--king say something nice or don't say anything at all...All you said was negative s--t, so now you know how I feel!"
"This is not intentional, you're making this so hard," she continued. "You were her father. You were her dad since she was five years old. Give her a break."
Everything ends on a positive note, and Caitlyn eventually concedes that Kris is right. In fact, the whole episode ends up being somewhat of an ode to Mama Kris, and how the entire family owes basically everything to her. Of course, the Kardashians aren't your average family—and luckily, Kris is there to keep them together.
