Kris Jenner is nothing if not prepared!

Serving as manager for her daughters Kim, Kourtney and Khloe, the Kardashian-Jenner family matriarch, 56, frequently plans out her schedule well in advance — and as Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians showed, that includes organizing her own funeral.

After she asked her mother, MJ, if she can be included in her parents’ burial plot and is rebuffed, Jenner got the wild idea to purchase a group mausoleum so that the entire Kardashian-Jenner clan can transition to the afterlife together. To explore her options, Jenner visited the famed Hollywood Forever Cemetery as well as a casket factory with children Rob, Kim and Khloe in tow.

“As a gift to you, I want to do this so that you’d never have to worry about anything ever again if anything happened to me or Bruce,” she tells a skeptical Rob, who joined Khloe and Kim in humoring their mother despite their misgivings.

As they toured the cemetery grounds, Khloe, 28, and Kim, 31, joked about what type of mausoleum they’d like. “We want our own mausoleum with a moat so no one can steal our bodies,” joked Khloe, while Kim said she’d like their final resting place decked out in black and white marble.

Things got all too real for the siblings when Jenner took them to ABC Caskets Factory so she could “test drive” a casket. “It’s very pretty and comfortable,” she mused when stepping inside one and settling in.

“Seeing my mom in the casket is weird to look at. She’s all serious and I don’t want to think about that,” Rob, 25, admitted. “My mom’s intentions are always great, but this is a sad process that’s messing with our emotions.”

Khloe also found Jenner’s pre-planning to be too much to take and was reminded of her father Robert Kardashian, Sr.’s 2003 death following a battle with esophageal cancer. “I don’t know if this is a way for my mom to deal with death, but it’s not fun if you’re a kid,” Khloe said. “I was trying to play along and make it playful, but I don’t think she realizes that we’ve already lost a parent and we don’t want to lose another one.”

Funeral Homes are Struggling to Keep Their Doors Open

Ryan Thogmartin - August 13, 2017

This is a topic and conversation that does not get talked about or covered enough. We all want to put the blame on cremation and ignore the fact that many of the issues facing funeral homes aren't because families choose cremation but because of bad business decisions of many funeral directors who don't want to change or accept cremation.
