Plus, find out which "Burning Question" Ellen DeGeneres asks that brings the game to a screeching, uncomfortable halt.
Kardashian momager extraordinaire Kris Jenner dropped by "Ellen" for Friday's show where she dished on Kanye's presidential luncheon, Kim and Kourtney's big fight and played a candid round of "Burning Questions."
It was a little shocking to hear the matriarch of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" admit that she can't and doesn't always control everything, but we kind of got the sense from her chat with Ellen about Kanye's recent antics at TMZ and the White House that she sometimes wishes she could.
"It was surprising that he was able to have that-- It was very spontaneous," Kris said of Kanye's chat with Donald Trump. "He was sharing thoughts and things of himself but I would rather he share some of that privately."
She had nothing but praise for Kanye as a father, husband and son-in-law, but said that he's revealing something new in recent weeks. "He definitely has his own thoughts and opinions and he gets very excited about that," she said. "He does have different sides to him. This is a side that nobody's seen before."
Ultimately, she just has to accept, as Kim has done, that she isn't always going to agree with him and that's okay. "It's really hard," she admitted. "You all know when you have kids and they might have a totally different opinion about something or a different view about something and his are very strong. He's very opinionated and he has a big voice and he has a lot to say."
"And he has access to the White House," Ellen quipped.
"I don't," Kris laughed.
Later, the two strapped down for a lightning round of "Burning Questions" where Kris revealed all kinds of interesting tidbits like who her favorite child was and which of them is the smartest: Kendall and Kim, respectively. She qualified it by saying that her favorite child changes daily, so Kendall was just in that top slot for the day.
No qualifications for smartest child, though.
At another point, Kris was sure she'd disappointed Ellen when the host asked her what was in her nightstand drawer.
"Heating pad, Bible and lip stuff," Kris said. Then, looking slyly at Ellen, she added, "She wants me to say vibrator."
"No I don't."
"Yeah, you do. You were waiting for that."
"I was not waiting for that," Ellen insisted. "But is there?"
It was all fun and games until Ellen asked a question Kris did not seem to be prepared for. "Why wasn't I invited to Kylie's birthday party?" she asked.
Kris came to a dead stop, as she thought about it. "Do you know that that is such a good question," she finally said. "But I brought you a party favor."
"I don't care," Ellen said shortly, moving on.
Kris also talked about that epic fight between Kim and Kourtney over Kourtney's so-called work ethic, and how the biggest takeaway she got from that episode airing was that it actually served to normalize the multimillion dollar family to a lot of its viewers.
"That was the feedback we got," Kris said. "'Who knew this was going on in your house. This goes on in my house all the time.' I can't tell you how many millions of times I heard that."
