Maybe the fact that she wanted to change her name back to Kardashian should have been an indication. Following today’s announcement that they have decided to split after 22 years of marriage, Kris Jenner put on a brave face (and dropped an F bomb or two) as she faced the public. Truth is, they have been separated since June.
If you have been following along with E! Entertainment Television’s show, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” you would already know that this was a long time coming. It’s true that Jenner wanted to change her marital name back to Kardashian, “to protect the brand,” she said. But anyone with eyes and ears could see that she had been hen pecking and harping on hapless Bruce Jenner for years.
First off, the man had an allowance. He is a former Olympic champion and Kris Jenner was giving him an allowance as if he were a twelve year-old boy. It got so bad that once had stepdaughter Khloe hired him as a handyman around the house for extra cash. That, and the fact that in order to get his daily Starbucks fix he had to rely on pre-paid gift cards which his wife doled out to him. Lately, it seemed that he was only happy when flying his beloved remote control helicopters. Put the man out of his misery, for crying out loud!
Then there was his temporary move to a swinging bachelor pad in Malibu while Kris stayed in the palatial Calabassas, CA mansion. To give himself more space and quiet time away from what was surely the Kardashian circus. A vacation home, if you will. Maybe he got a little too comfortable being away from all the drama.
Now is where it gets good. Just this past Monday Kris Jenner was spotted having dinner with Britney Spears’ ex, Jason Trawick. After their meal, the duo headed to Jenner’s Range Rover, where Jenner drove Trawick home. A simple meal shared among friends? Colleagues? Or is there something more there? Considering she is 57 and he 42 we have officially entered Cougar Town. Rowr!
Bruce’s son Brody Jenner took to the airwaves today trying to soften the news of the separation. He claims that just because the couple are living apart it doesn’t mean that they aren’t still together. Yeah, that’s exactly what that means.
Kris Jenner is a highly successful, very independent woman. The so-called “Momager” has made Kardashian a household name. She has an estimated net worth of $20 million. Her recent talk show, “Kris,” positively tanked, but is being brushed off as a fun experience while it lasted. So, clearly, she does not need a man to make her life fulfilled.
With daughter Kim and newborn baby North living with Jenner in the Calabassas home and with other daughter Khloe Kardashian-Odom suffering from her own marital woes it stands to reason that Jenner has a lot on her plate. And if all else fails maybe she and Odom can get a discount on a double divorce. Too soon?
