Kris Jenner Explains Where Rob Kardashian Was on Thanksgiving

It’s been years since Rob Kardashian has appeared on his famous family’s reality series, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. And the sole son of Kris Jenner has successfully stayed out of the spotlight, not even posing for a picture with any of his social media-loving sisters.

So when the whole Kardashian-Jenner clan congregated at Khloe Kardashian’s Calabasas, Calif., home for Thanksgiving, fans were curious to see if Rob, 28, would show. Though he didn’t appear in the group photo that both Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian posted, momager Kris, 60, confirmed that Rob was nearby.

“He lives with Khloe,” she explained on Maria Menounos’ SiriusXM show. “So he was around, and then went over to a buddy’s house. He’s doing all right. You know, he’s doing his best. He’s not into being on camera as much as the rest of us. But he’s working on himself. He’s going to be okay.”

And though Rob wouldn’t appear in any photos with his fam, one somewhat surprising guest did make a cameo. Caitlyn Jenner, who has slowly been working on her relationship with her ex-wife Kris during this season of KUWTK, posed for the shot and attended the festivities.

“Caitlyn kind of did a drive-by, came by, spent some time, then went on to do the family rounds because everybody’s scattered all over the place,” Kris explained. “Because we’re so busy and life is at a lightning pace sometimes, we don’t stop and feel things. So on days like Thanksgiving and when you have down time, you sit back and go ‘Wow, this is a little different than it was last year.’”

Another big change for the family is the strained relationship between Kourtney Kardashian and her former longtime love, Scott Disick. Though the pair split over the summer, they’ve been spotted more and more together with their three kids in recent weeks. Kris noted she would be all for them to get back together for good.

“Everybody deserves another chance, and she just wants the best for her and her kids,” Kris, who recently called Disick, 32, “one of the true loves of my life” in an Instagram, said of the former couple. “So I think it’s just a wait and see what happens to the two of them. So all a mom can do is pray. I do a lot of praying these days.”
