The mom-of-six revealed to Access Hollywood that while the world has embraced her former husband's new female persona, her ex's name is still an issue for Kris.

"Can you call Caitlyn, Caitlyn?" Billy Bush asked Kris during an exclusive interview with the momager, 59.

"No," Kris revealed. "I say 'Jenner,'" she explained.

"It's hard, you know, it's really, really hard," she continued. "What I have realized in all of this is that everyone handles stuff a different way. No matter what it is, you know. We're all people. We all have different emotions."

Kris went on to explain that she is gradually "getting to know" the female alter ego of the person she was married to for 22 years, but adds that these things do and should take time.

"I just thought she would be a little bit different," Kris admitted, candidly. "Bruce had a distinct personality and, you know, had definite characteristics. And Caitlyn has some different ones, I feel."

"Can you ever be great friends with Caitlyn? Girlfriends? Curl up on the couch? Can this happen?" the host asked.

"I don't know about curl up on the couch, but she came over for a drink last night," Kris replied. "And that was nice."
