Kris Jenner admits she's 'in denial' about O.J. Simpson's parole

Kris Jenner has broken her silence about what she thinks of O.J. Simpson being granted parole last October after serving nearly nine years behind bars for armed robbery.

On Sunday's Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the 62-year-old reality star met up with her longtime friend, Faye Resnick, and the subject turned to the former NFL pro getting out of prison. Both women were friends with Simpson's ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, who was murdered in 1994. 

Simpson was found not guilty in the murders of his ex-wife and Ron Goldman in 1995, though two years later, he was found Iiable for their deaths in a civil trial, and was ordered to pay over $33 million to the victims' families.

During their lunch, Resnick -- who co-authored the 1994 book Nicole Brown Simpson: The Private Diary of a Life Interrupted -- admits that Simpson's parole "scares the death" out of her and has led to her "having nightmares."

Jenner -- who was married to Robert Kardashian, Simpson's friend and one of his defense attorneys -- tries to change the subject, confessing that she's "in denial" about him being a free man.

She's not the only one that was in disbelief. After Simpson was granted parole in July, ET spoke to Kato Kaelin -- who rose to fame as a witness for the prosecution in Simpson's murder trial -- about the 70-year-old former athlete getting out of prison.

"Watching it, I think the biggest shock was that he didn't seem to have the compassion," he said. "I didn't see the compassion from him. I thought he seemed to be the same O.J. -- just tried and true charisma."
