They have one of the closer bonds in the Kardashian family, but even Kris Jenner and supposed-favourite daughter Kim have their differences from time to time.

Momager Kris expresses her dismay in a new teaser clip of the family's reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, as it returns to television network E! on 23 October following a midseason break.

The 60-year-old mother of six wasn't too pleased about Kim spending time with her stepfather, Kris' ex-husband, Caitlyn Jenner.

Kim's younger sister Khloe shows friend Malika Haqq an angry text from mother Kris. She tells Malika: "She's so p****d that Kim was dressing Caitlyn Jenner for the ESPYs."

And in a heated telephone exchange between mother and daughter Kris and Kim, the momager doesn't hold back in terms of letting her know what she thinks. Kris tells her: "Kim, you are a f*****g traitor!" she says. "You're not going to f*****g play this game anymore!"

Meanwhile, that isn't the only drama brewing among the Kardashian clan. Rob Kardashian is preparing for his baby with fiancée Blac Chyna, and Khloe is ambivalent about what size breast enhancement she should choose.

Holding up chicken cutlets for size, Khloe says: "We're in LA... People get their boobs done like they fill up a car with gas."

On Sunday (16 October), Kylie Jenner took to Instagram to celebrate the milestone with a video montage of the past nine years of the show, which is now in its 12th season. She captioned the clip "major throwback #9years" as it was viewed 7.5 million times by her 76.7 million followers.

New episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians will return from Sunday, Oct. 23 at 9 p.m on E!.
