"I'm actually searching for the same answer to that question," Jenner said on "The View" Wednesday morning.
Jenner teared up while talking about the split, recalling the conversation she had with her daughter about the decision to end her marriage.
"She says mommy this is something that I feel that I need to do. Please trust me, please be there for me. And of course as a mom I'm with my girls through thick and thin and its tough," Jenner said. "It's a tough time for the family and for Kim and for everybody involved. It's really hard to go through this on such a public stage."
Kardashian filed for divorce Monday, citing "irreconcilable differences." Her reported $10 million dollar wedding was broadcast in a 2-day, 4-hour special on E!.
In a blog post published on her personal website Tuesday, Kardashian admitted that she "rushed" into marriage -- and filming a reality show may have had something to do with it.
"I want a family and babies and a real life so badly that maybe I rushed in to something too soon," she writes. "I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn't get off when now I know I probably should have. I got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn't know how to and didn't want to disappoint a lot of people."
So does Kris Jenner regret filming the show and televising the nuptials?
"Absolutely not," she said.
