Earlier this week, we reported that Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner finally met face-to-face for the first time.
The news came as a surprise to many, as Kris and Caitlyn had been feuding ever since the latter made her debut on the cover of Vanity Fair.
Kris claimed that Caitlyn had lied to her about her desire to become a woman, and essentially carried on a 23-year sham of a marriage.
If Kris really believes that was the case, what could possibly motivate her to forgive Caitlyn, or even offer her a chance to explain?
Well, this is Kris Jenner we're talking about, so the promise of a little free publicity did the trick nicely.
Yes, sources connected to the show are now saying that Kris and Caitlyn's meeting was filmed for an upcoming episode of I Am Cait.
“Never wanting to miss an opportunity to further advance her public image, Kris knew it would be a good thing to have the reunion with Caitlyn filmed,” says one insider. “They were both in full hair and make-up, and dressed very fashionably.”
The meeting was mutually beneficial, as it allowed Kris to rehab her public image - which has took a hit after she publicly bad-mouthed her ex - and it helped Caitlyn drum up some much-needed hype for her reality show.
Ratings for the premiere of I Am Cait were a big disappointment, and if they don't improve over the course of the season, Caitlyn could be facing the embarrassment of cancelation.
In news that's unlikely to surprise anyone, the encounter was scripted and rehearsed do that both ladies would leave the audience with a favorable impression:
“Kris admitted that while she was still having a difficult time processing Caitlyn’s transition, she sees how happy she is, and in the end that is all that mattered,” said the source.
Naturally, the segment ends with both ladies hugging and forgiving one another.
We guess you can't be married to a PR mastermind for 23 years without picking up a trick or two of your own.
