Kris and Caitlyn Jenner finally came face to face on Sunday’s I Am Cait, the first time the exes had spoken in "at least six months," according to the reality star.
"I just felt thrown under the bridge," Kris said of her ex’s transition. "You were so excited to be going through this exciting time in your life, but I feel like I really was blindsided in a lot of ways. And that really got to me so bad that I couldn’t...I didn’t want to communicate with you and be angry."
"What would you be angry for?" Caitlyn asked. When Kris was reluctant to explain, Caitlyn pushed her, "because it affects the kids."
"You’re sensitive and amazing to all these new people in your life," Kris admitted. "You’re just not so sensitive and amazing to this side of the family that you left behind."
The two discussed their lack of communication since Caitlyn’s transition and also addressed more recent issues within the family, specifically Caitlyn’s hurt feelings at not being invited to daughter Kylie’s graduation party.
"I was so disappointed in everybody," Caitlyn admitted. "For 15 years of my life, I carpooled the kids every day. Sometimes I would spend three or four hours a day in the car. [It’s] a slap in the face when you don’t get invited to the graduation."
"That’s exactly how I felt with the Vanity Fair article," Kris retorted. "It wasn’t malicious. I didn’t intend to hurt anybody's feelings. But my feelings still weren’t healed."
The pair were married from 1991-2015, though Caitlyn told Kris that the reason for their split was only "20%" about her gender identity.
"I did not leave you thinking I was going to transition," she told her skeptical ex-wife. "I didn’t know what I was going to do. I never thought I’d be here."
"I know you said you haven’t gone anywhere and you’re still the same person," Kris admitted tearfully. "But sometimes they just miss having Bruce around. We all do."
Both women clearly still have some resentment issues to work out -- Caitlyn over Kris’ radio silence in the month following her announcement, and Kris for comments that Caitlyn made in her Vanity Fair expose. However, by the end of their conversation, things were looking up.
"I’m really happy for you, I really am," Kris told Caitlyn. "Because I want you to be happy."
The finale episode of the reality miniseries, which also showcased Caitlyn introducing Culture Club at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and a renaming ceremony the reality star and friends held at her home, seemed to reveal the beginning of a new relationship for the exes, and they marked the event in true Kardashian-Jenner fashion -- by snapping a selfie.
"We just have to get used to our new normal," Kris conceded with a smile, adding that she’d welcome her ex over for a drink, but stopping short at the idea of them going shopping together. "I just want to get to a place where it’s comfortable for us to share celebrations together."
"Maybe it’ll be a little different in the future now," Caitlyn concluded. "I hope it is. Because I want to keep my relationship with all my kids, and that’s the most important thing."
