No, no. Not the family you’d THINK she be ashamed of!
Apparently, Kris Jenner is so image-obsessed that she’s turned her back on her younger sister, Karen Houghton, because of her and the dudes she dates!
“Kris is so over the top when it comes to being image-conscious,” a family insider told the newest issue of STAR. “And while Karen is a totally down-to-earth sweetheart, she certainly doesn’t come close to meeting the glam standards that Kris likes to publicly project for her family. That’s also more than likely why you never see Karen on any of the family TV shows.”
The magazine emphasizes that Houghton’s been with men who are into drugs and crime. Both her ex-husband of 6 years and live-in boyfriend fit the bill…and Kris ain’t having it!
Her relationship Ex-hubby Mark Zettel ended in 2002, though they have a daughter together named Natalie, 15. Zettel’s been arrested 16 times for g rand theft, possession of ammunition by a prohibited person and being under the influence of a controlled substance. Karen doesn’t want her kid to have anything to do with her ex, thankfully…
“He’s on crystal meth, psychiatric drugs, bipolar meds,” Houghton claimed in a request filed with the San Diego County Superior Court, alleging that her ex’s behavior was “volatile, threatening, scary, bullies me and my child. He will take my daughter away. He will find a way to make me pay for leaving him.”
Less than two years after her request for protection against Zettel, she then requested another order against Steven Edward Thornton, an ex-boyfriend with 12 arrests in California and Tennessee on charges of aggravated burglary and theft.
A family insider says, “Karen’s relationships with such unsavory characters had to have been a major sore point with the Kardashian clan. Karen means well, but bringing violent cons into their family circle has made her a bit of a black sheep — especially to Kris.”
Okay, it makes sense that Kris doesn’t want this kind of riff raff around the Kardashian Klan, but I wonder to what extent she’s isolating her sister from the family. It’s obvious Karen likes a bad boy but come on, how much could that possibly destroy the illustrious reputation of the family (sex tape, ahem, sex tape)?
