Exclusive: Alleged Serial cheater momager Kris Jenner was caught in friend's home gym reportedly
The relationship drama and constant make-ups and break-ups that some of Kris Jenner's six children go through on a near-weekly basis are nothing compared to their mother's sexual escapade .
In his new book 'Kardashians:
An American Drama' from St. Martin's Press, which will hit bookshelves in September, New York Times bestselling author Jerry Oppenheimer details the many relationships of the former Kris Houghton, and how the teenage golf-groupie became the head of a billion-dollar empire.
The book also includes scandalous new details about Kris' many affairs, and interviews with the men and women who caught her in the act as well as childhood friends who reveal that Kris was taught in the art of seduction under the training of her mother Mary Jo Shannon.
And if illicit romances and passionate romps are not enough, there is also a still-unsolved $30,000 jewel heist that many pin on Kris, according to the book

Kris' interest in men started at a young age according to her friends, and with a bit of an assist from her mother.
'The way I knew Kris, she was a good person and then something happened,' explains Joan Zimmerman
New York Times-bestselling author Jerry Oppenheimer is telling all about Kris Jenner in 'Kardashians: An American Drama,' which is out in September
'She changed and we weren't seeing much of each other. She was pursuing something else.'
Zimmerman then adds: 'I don't want to use a bad term, but I think her mom was pimping her out.'
This sudden shift came about in the 11th grade according to Zimmerman, who prior to that had been Kris' closest friend.
Even though she was close to Kris however, Zimmerman claims she never really got a chance to get to know mom Mary Jo, who by that time was married to businessman Harry Shannon.
'I knew there was a mom, and I knew she had rules in the house for Kris, but she never interacted with us,' says Zimmerman, who later explains that the 'family was just very private, and Kris kind of lived within those rules.'
Kris' father Robert Houghton was also not in the picture, having disappeared from her life after divorcing her mother when she was just 7, leaving her mother to raise Kris and her younger sister Karen.
That brought Kris and Mary Jo closer, and by the time she was 16 the two ladies began spending their weekends together at Rancho La Costa.
It was there that Kris learned how to socialize with rich and older men while also developing a fondness for golf - and golfers.

Zimmerman says that by her final year at Claremont high school Kris had left her behind and forged a new friendship with a popular cheerleader who had just graduated from the school, Debbie Mungle.
The two became so close that they decided to take off for Hawaii after Kris graduated, and it was not long after they arrived that Kris snagged herself a man with a bit of fame and fortune.
Kris, who was still just 17, began dating professional golfer Cesar Sanudo, who at 28 was more than a decade older than the recent high school graduate.
The two met at the Hawaiian Open in 1973, and according to Sanudo's daughter Amber Carrilo, her father had no idea that he was striking up a romance with a teenager.
'He told me she told him she was twenty-one, but she was only seventeen, or just about ready to turn eighteen,' says Carillo.
'He said she fabricated things and didn't really talk about where she came from, about who her real father was, details like that.'
She also claims Kris 'was being groomed at home' at the time from what she understood.
'She wanted to be mature and be a golf groupie and try to find a man who had money, that whole thing of just climb the ladder, try to find somebody who was going to get her where she needed to be, wherever that was.'
Kris was travelling the world with Sanudo by the next year as she followed him on the tour, and when she skipped out on tournaments she would stay at his San Diego home.
Then, soon after she turned 19, Sanudo popped the question and Kris said yes according to a number of the golfer's friends.
It was around that same time that Kris also met Robert Kardashain and the Armenian lawyer quickly to a shine to the teenager.
Kris was still focused on Sanudo however, and says they were almost married in Great Britain during the 1975 Open.
The wedding was not to be however, and nor was the engagement, with Kris slowly growing closer and closer to Robert until she finally decided to go out on a date with him while Sanudo was out of town.
After dinner and a few sodas it was back to Sanudo's pad for a little post-movie magic.
Kris claimed in her 2011 memoir that she and Robert were 'messing around and heading in the direction of some major hanky panky' when Sanudo arrived home, referring to the golfer as Anthony in the book.
"Thanks god we had our clothes on,' added Kris of the soon-to-be highly-devout couple.
But that was not the case, according to Sanudo's good friend and fellow tour player Jack Spradlin who was interviewed by Oppenheimer.
He says that Sanuto was very clear in his version of events, telling all of his friends: 'I was out of town and I came home and I caught Kris and Kardashian in bed.'
This was the cleaned-up retelling of the story, with an unnamed friend later adding that he was told: I found that b**** in bed with that sleazy Armenian. I could have killed the motherf***er.'
Spradlin and Sanuto's daughter also dismissed Kris' claims that the golfer ever cheated on her, with Carrillo adding that he her dad was 'very, very hurt by what Kris did' and 'pretty messed up about it for a 'long, long time.'

Carrillo also claims that Kris left with some very expensive tokens when she got kicked to the curb for her adulterous ways.
'My dad had gold bullion, gold coins, and one day, a couple of weeks after Kris left, my dad went to look for them and they were gone,' says Carrillo.
'Sometime later he said he had run into Kris' mom and he saw that she was wearing a bracelet that had three gold coins on it, and my dad thought they were from his collection.'
Sanudo told the same story to his brother Rudy, and according to Spradline even called Kris a number of times to accuse her of stealing his pricey collection of golden treasures and demanding their return.
Kris eventually married Robert in 1978 and the two went on to have four children: Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob.
They were wealthy, had great friends and were living the high life in Beverly Hills, but Kris still could not control her cheating ways.

Robert got his karmic retribution for sleeping with the fiance of another man, in the form of personal trainer Todd Waterman.
And for their secret romps, she picked the home gym of her husband's best friend Larry Kraines.
Kris would claim she was working out there on most afternoons, but Larry was forced to confront her and caught her in the act after being told by his housekeeper 'that they were doing something bad' and it was 'very quiet down there in the gym.'
Kraines says he did not told Robert, and Kris never actually admitted to the affair even after he caught her in the act.
He gave up the secret however when Robert himself asked his friends if he knew about Kris' relationship with Waterman, calling it 'f***ing bulls***.'.
Kraines says Robert also revealed that he had confronted the man, at which point Kris told Kraines and his wife Joyce the she 'regretted' her decision.
Kris then continued having an affair with Waterman, claims the author.
