Where Was Rob Kardashian During His Family's Thanksgiving Celebration?
The Kardashian-Jenner clan came together for Thanksgiving this year – even the reclusive Rob Kardashian.
Though he wasn’t pictured in the “blended family” holiday portrait everyone shared on social media, mom Kris Jenner revealed during SiriusXM’s Conversations with Maria Menounos on Tuesday that her son was indeed there for the family celebration, which was hosted by Khloé Kardashian, 31.
“He lives with Khloé. So he was around, and then went over to a buddy’s house,” Kris, 60, told Menounos, 37, of her only son.
Kardashian, 28, has been out of the public eye – and away from the Keeping Up with the Kardashian cameras – for over 18 months.
“He’s doing alright. You know, he’s doing his best,” Kris said. “He’s not as into being on camera as much as the rest of us. But he’s working on himself. He’s going to be okay.”
Though he hasn’t stepped out publicly, Kardashian has sporadically shared pictures of himself on Instagram.
“I know, [it’s like], ‘Come back, where are you?’ ” Kris said of her son’s social media snaps. “He’s so cute.”

Another guest at the famous family’s Thanksgiving celebration was Kris’ ex-spouse Caitlyn Jenner, 66.
“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 said.
Though the exes went through a tense period following Caitlyn’s transition this summer, the momager says the two are working toward reaching a healthier place in their relationship.
“I think it’s evolving,” Kris said. “But yeah, it’s a process. It’s a new normal. … Because we’re so busy and life is at lightning pace sometimes, you don’t stop and feel things. So I think 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.’ ”
“We were all so proud of Rob,” she gushed in a #ThrowbackThursday post. “I mean, we were shocked that he even decided to do the show, and then the fact that he was runner-up was incredible! He was so phenomenal and gave 100 percent at every show. I’m so proud of my baby bro!!!”
