Karen Houghton and Kris Houghton Relationship

The sisters reportedly had a complex relationship, largely raised by their mother, MJ, in California following their parents' divorce in 1962. In her 2011 memoir, Kris Jenner... and All Things Kardashian, Kris described their bond as strong, stating they supported each other through various challenges.

However, tensions arose in 2013 when Karen garnered attention for speaking to reporters outside Kim Kardashian's baby shower, allegedly violating a non-disclosure agreement. That same year, Karen publicly criticized Kris in multiple interviews, prompting Kris to express her disappointment and distance herself from her sister.

In 2016, Karen underwent a five-hour facelift in a quest for a more youthful appearance, expressing a desire to resemble Kris. Following the procedure, Karen Houghton remarked that she now bore a resemblance to her sister, Kris, something she hadn't anticipated.
