As if the world didn’t already know, Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner are separated. After months of speculation and rumors, probably started by the Kardashian matriarch, the couple has finally released a statement confirming the news. It is hard to be sad when the two seemed so wrong for each other. And quite frankly, they both seem to be a lot happier in general.
It was pretty obvious Kris Jenner was getting tired of Bruce Jenner’s desire to get away from the constant media attention. There was no way she was going to give up that precious spotlight and sacrifice her status as one of the players in Hollywood. Not to mention, her bank account would take a major hit as would each of her darling daughters’ careers. She is not a momager for nothing.
The separation comes at a time when all eyes were on Khloe Kardashian and her estranged husband, Lamar Odom. Kris Jenner was spotted meeting with divorce attorneys and many assumed it was on behalf of her daughter. Turns out maybe she was the one looking into getting a divorce. Or not if you choose to believe sources who say Kris has not tried to get a divorce rolling.
And why would she? There is so much more drama if she drags it out. You know; counseling and all of the trials and so forth she could turn into some juicy gossip which translates into high ratings. You may or may not know or care, but the show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians is tanking. Viewers are dropping like flies and something must be done. Enter another Kardashian, or Jenner divorce.
In the joint statement released to E! News (imagine they would pick their own network) Bruce and Kris Jenner state, “We are living separately and we are much happier this way.” Ah, such love. They go on to say, “But we will always have much love and respect for each other. Even though we are separated, we will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our number one priority.” That certainly sounds pretty permanent. Is it really feasible to imagine the couple who are worth millions would not seek out legal counsel?
It is too bad they couldn’t make. They did have 22 years together and seemed to be in it for the long haul. And despite sources saying attorneys have not been called in. Kris Jenner tells US Weekly, “We ended a marriage, but that's not the end of our friendship.” Again, that seriously sounds like it is final. The magazine reports the two have actually been split for a year. All those tabloids had it right it seems. Other sources report Kris has stayed at the family home in Calabasas where Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are currently living. Bruce has been living in Malibu and spending time with his sons Brody and Brandon.
Does anybody else think the timing of this announcement is suspect? It is either for ratings or as a smokescreen for Khloe and Lamar’s marital problems.
