Mary Jo Shannon 'MJ' - Kim Kardashian's Grandmother

Several times, we've seen the Kardashians' grandma Mary Jo Campbell (Shannon) appear on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. The family calls her MJ and she is the mother of Kris Jenner. According to Celebuzz, over the summer, the girls of the Kardashian-Jenner fam got together and went to San Diego to celebrate MJ's birthday. In the past, we've seen Kris Jenner struggling with visiting her mother as she felt it was painful to see her mom age. So, what's the background on the Kardashian grandparents on their mom's side? According to Radar Online, Kris Jenner's father Robert “Bob” Houghton, was an abusive alcoholic. The site reports that it was his drinking binges that led to his death in a car crash. Robert Houghton crashed into a vegetable truck and the steering wheel of his car went into his body. Kris Jenner's parents ultimately divorced years prior to his death and Jenner's relationship with her father was reportedly estranged.
