Kris Jenner pulls out of TV appearance after allergic reaction

Kim Kardashian's mother Kris Jenner scrapped a TV appearance on Monday (31Aug15) after suffering an allergic reaction to an insect bite.

Jenner was scheduled to appear on dating show Bachelor in Paradise: After Paradise, but had to pull out at the last minute after her lips swelled up.


The 59-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star called into the show and explained her absence to host Chris Harrison, saying, "Nobody's more sorry than I am, because I'm, like, your biggest superfan, by the way... A couple of years ago... we were in the Dominican Republic, and I got bitten by something. And my lip blew up like the size of a - God knows what - a tyre on my face.


"And the same thing happened this morning! I got up, and we just came back from St. Barts - we were on a family vacation filming our show about a week ago - and I feel like, I don't know what happened. I feel like I got a bite on my face and, like, half of my face blew up."


Jenner, who attended the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night (30Aug15) with members of her extended family, called out a doctor in a bid to recover in time for her TV appearance, adding, "They gave me everything they could possibly give me in 12 hours. It went down a little bit, but not quite enough. I'm a little too vain, I think, to go on live TV with a huge lip."
