Reportedly the former wife of Bruce Jenner is seeking to remarry Caitlyn in a fabulous on-air ceremony. Kristen Mary Jenner is known to be the mastermind behind the successful Keeping Up With the Kardashians reality show and is now looking for ways to help boost ratings for I Am Cait. While this may seem farfetched to some, allegedly Caitlyn is considering the idea.
The powerhouse behind reality TV’s most famous clan changed the nature of what had been known as celebrity status when she created a strange new form of family business with reality TV. Kris is not only an executive producer of Keeping Up With the Kardashians but she also manages the careers of all six of her children, as well as her own and has been credited with maintaining the Kardashian empire.
What started as a strange idea stemming from cameras following the lives of a family has grown into a new standard of television. Kris has changed the climax of the Kardashian-Jenner name. At one time, they were famous for simply “being famous,” but now they known for the industry they have created. This family has not just invaded the culture but metastasized into it; with Kris at the forefront, members of the family have emerged as legitimate business people.
On Aug. 7, fans went crazy after her daughter, Kim Kardashian-West, shared a picture of Caitlyn and Kris together. Supposedly, this is when the million dollar idea arose in the mind of the 59-year-old celebrity personality. Kris believes this is one of her most profitable ideas because the fans will go crazy watching her and Caitlyn together in a fabulous ceremony all glammed up. According to the source who leaked the idea to the media:
She is giddy over the idea. The image of her and Caitlyn — whom Kris privately still refers to as Bruce, by the way — reunited for a fabulous TV wedding makes her deliriously happy.
Although it is simply a publicity stunt to boost the ratings and thereby increase income for the current reality show based on the Jenner brand, many believe the fans will still be excited to watch. After witnessing the ugly divorce, it is no secret that Kris is done with Jenner except for money-making purposes. While it is quite obvious that the 59-year-old is not experiencing a shortage of money, it is equally clear that she loves it.
Does she love money enough to remarry her ex on national television? I Am Cait has not produced the ratings the network or Caitlyn has hoped for, but it is quite possible without all of the attention garnered over the years from Kris that millions of viewers would never have tuned in to catch “Bruce’s” tell-all interview with Diane Sawyer. On April 24, a whopping 16.9 million televisions were tuned in to hear the story of Bruce’s transition to Caitlyn.
Prior to the infamous Diane Sawyer interview, Jenner had been “in the closet” living as a female behind closed doors. When she decided to break her silence and go public as a transgender Kris was horrified. The powerhouse was concerned that this decision could tarnish the brand she had worked so hard to build.
Now, in hopes of gaining a profit from the transition, Kris is allegedly seeking to remarry Jenner in a televised event. A special like this could rake in millions of viewers for the network and mega dollars for the Jenners. The idea is still in the incubation phase of creativity, so fans will have to wait and see whether Kris and Caitlyn can successfully pull off this million dollar stunt, or not.
