Kris Jenner – Spills Yellowstone News!
Yellowstone fans could have seen a member of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians (KUWTK) cast co-star with Kevin Costner. At least that’s the claim from KUWTK matriarch Kris Jenner. And the season four premiere of The Kardashians reveals Kris confessing how she banned her boyfriend, Corey Gamble, from Yellowstone, reported EW.
However, prior to her confession, Jenner and her family get together in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. And Khloe Kardashian and Kim Kardashian join Kris and Cory for a peaceful dinner. But then the KUWTK matriarch announces, “I’m so excited to watch the next episode of Yellowstone.”
And Gamble, who began his romance with Jenner in 2014, drops a bombshell. Turning to Kris, he claims, “If it wasn’t for you, I would be a Yellowstone star!” But Kim promptly reacts to the shocking announcement that Cory rejected the chance to star on the show. And she questions, “They asked you to be on Yellowstone and you said no?”
However, though Kim asked Gamble, Jenner answered. And she confessed, “Correct. I told him to say no. Because I thought he was going to have to have a romantic relationship [on the show].”

Meanwhile, Yellowstone has soared to success on CBS, attracting 6.6 million viewers to the network for its broadcast debut. And the final number of viewers, given three days of viewing via platforms such as DVR, showed almost 7.5 million tuning into CBS for the drama, according to Variety.
