Together – again.
Only days after she was photographed kissing estranged husband Bruce Jenner on the cheek after a holiday weekend movie with her mom in Calabasas, Calif., Kris Jenner posted an Instagram photo of herself getting silly with close pal Ben Flajnik during dinner at Nobu in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
Posing with pouting duck lips, Jenner, 58, was joined in the group photo by her girlfriend, entrepreneur Liz Heinlein. She captioned her shot of the threesome: "Date night with Ben and Liz."

If you think Christmas can be a bit of a circus, the Kardashians seem to agree.
It wouldn't be the holidays in Hollywood without the anticipated unveiling of the Kardashian Christmas card, and this year's family photo is decidedly more high fashion than last year's more traditional white Christmas.
The glam, golden, glitzy photo features the Kardashian-Jenner clan draped in black and posing in a graffiti-strewn, artistically-trashed carnival-inspired room, littered with dollar signs, pop art and magazines, that looks as if it was taken in post-Mad Max Vegas.
Shot by famed photographer David LaChappelle, the photo seems to state that life as a member of the Kardashian family is a constant media circus.

The Bachelor's Ben Flajnik enjoys driving Kris Jenner's Bentley, but don't get the idea that they are anything more than just friends.
"I happened to be in L.A. and I didn't have a car, so she let me borrow hers. She wasn't even there. Her assistant opened up the garage and just said, 'Pick one,' " Flajnik tells PEOPLE about recently being photographed leaving Jenner's Calabasas home behind the wheel of her car.
The photos – in addition to those of Jenner and Flajnik together at Flajnik's winery and on a vacation in Mexico – have fueled another round of reports that the tech mogul and momager are secretly having an affair, but Flanik says his relationship with Jenner is strictly professional.

Bruce Jenner's sometimes dysfunctional relationship with son, Brody, has been well-documented on Keeping Up with the Kardashians but Bruce says a little golf was all the duo needed.
"We talk all the time. We talked this morning," Brody, 30, told PEOPLE on Saturday. "It's all about golf; all we talk about is golf."
Wearing blue golf pants to a party he hosted at Hyde in Las Vegas on Saturday night, the former Hills star added that his father, 64, is doing well despite his recent separation from wife, Kris.

Post split, it seems things couldn't be better for Bruce and Kris Jenner.
"She supports me. I see her every day. We're doing absolutely great," Bruce, 64, said Monday at the closing ceremonies of the All Sports Film Festival in Los Angeles, where Kris presented Bruce with a Legendary Athletes Award.
That echoes what Kris, 58, has been saying since their separation, which became public in early October – that they grew apart but that the split couldn't be more amicable.

Kim Kardashian is headed in a new direction. Specifically, West.
The newly engaged reality queen revealed she will be taking Kanye West's name when they eventually wed.
But have no fear, Kardashian fans: That famed family name isn't going anywhere.
"It'll be Kim Kardashian West," she revealed to E! News Friday at her 33rd birthday party at Tao Las Vegas with her newly separated mom, Kris Jenner, by her side.

Kim Kardashian's motto for her wedding to fiancé Kanye West is simple: leave it up to Kanye.
The newly engaged reality star flashed her 15-carat sparkler on the red carpet at her 33rd birthday party at Tao Las Vegas Friday night, but said that little-to-nothing has been discussed about the wedding or even how long of an engagement she and West will have.
"We honestly haven't had a moment to talk about it or even breathe, so we haven't really talked about it, but whatever he wants," she told PEOPLE, adding that the only sure thing is that stepdad Bruce Jenner will walk her down the aisle.
