Hold up, while we were all busy carving turkeys and OD’ing on pie, Kris Jenner’s sister was celebrating her 60th birthday in a hospital. Yes, Kris Jenner, 63, has a younger sister. Maybe you knew about it, but somehow, this information seemed to be hidden inside our turkey’s guts with the stuffing.
The two are estranged. Kris' niece Natalie Zettel shared the Instagram snap of her mom, Karen Houghton, enjoying birthday cake in a hospital bed. 19-year-old Natalie captioned it, “Happy birthday Mom!”
The Daily Mail reports that “Kris tries to keep Karen out of the spotlight.”
Kris hates Karen’s choice in men, with a source saying, “Karen’s relationships with such unsavory characters had to have been a major sore point with the Kardashian clan.”
“Kris, born Kristen Mary Houghton, was raised in San Diego with Karen, her only sibling,” said the report.
Their single mother, Mary Jo Shannon (MJ), looked after them when their parents divorced.
Karen once made news for letting cameras film a five-hour face-lift.
Karen told In Touch magazine in 2013, “The whole world knows it – Kris is vain,” because of Kris’ love of plastic surgery.
