Kris Jenner faking her marriage: showbiz and business come first

We’ve heard stories for over a year now, that Kris and Bruce Jenner are on the verge of a split. We’ve heard that Kris browbeats Bruce and criticizes even his relatively harmless guy hobbies like golf and motorcycles. The latest stories have Bruce finally standing up for his youngest daughters, Kylie, 15, and Kendall, 17, and trying to keep them out of the family business of packaging and selling every aspect of their personal lives. Last week Star’s cover story had Bruce moving out of the family manse in order to get some space from Kris and protect his girls. Only not so fast, Kris of course isn’t having it because it affects her bottom line – their family image, and the amount of money they pull in for keeping it up. Here’s more, thanks to Radar:

Don’t expect either of the reality stars to come clean about the state of their marriage, or file for divorce, as the source says “momager” Kris is determined to maintain the façade of a happy union to make money and maintain the Kardashian brand.

“Kris and Bruce are all but over,” the source says. “They have grown apart and their relationship is all about business these days rather than love or romance.

“They’ve built a brand together though, and that’s very profitable for both of them, not to mention the amount of valuable assets and business ventures they have together.

As previously reported tension has been brewing between Bruce and Kris who have been married for 21 years. While the mom-of-six has denied their marriage is going through a rocky patch, it’s been reported that the former athlete is looking for a new place to live.

However, according to the source, the Jenners are not willing to publicly throw in the towel on their marriage just yet, and when they are, it’s likely Kris will want to fully control how it happens.

“There’s no way Kris is going to go through with a divorce right now, despite the problems they are having,” the source says. “She’s determined to keep up the façade of a happy marriage at all costs. Showbiz and her career come way before any chance of divorce.”

Bruce and Kris have been together for over 20 years. It would take a really huge slight by Kris to get Bruce to walk, I think. But I don’t think that the Kardashian empire would take that big a hit if Kris and Bruce split, I really don’t. I think Kris would find a way to spin it into a tale of a resourceful single mom doing her best under the circumstances. Hell, Kris would date guys on camera and build a whole plotline around the divorce and her “comeback”. Remember when we thought the Kardashians would face backlash after Kim split with Kris Humphries? That was over a year ago and the Ks are as strong as ever. They’re freaking Teflon.

    I am so sure they have enough money by now to live comfortably for the rest of their lives, even separately.

  2. BB says:

    I believe this is another false story from Star Magazine. All of Star Magazine’s exclusives have all been false and this is another one.

  3. Mini-Me says:

    You know those silly white T-shirts with a bikini body airbrushed on? (e.g., These illusion dresses are basically the celebrity version.

    Anyways, Bruce needs to run for the hills. Maybe I’ll make my OWN shirt that reads, “FREE BRUCE”

  4. cumber says:

    no surprise here. like there’s honesty in that family.

  5. LadyMTL says:

    I sort of hope it’s true, for Bruce’s sake. I’ve seen some of the show and it’s like…he’s not allowed to have any fun, it’s all Kris and her needs and what she likes and wants him to do and so on. And don’t even get me started on his plastic surgery – does anyone think he would have done it if she hadn’t insisted?

    • Jennifer says:

      I remember growing up, his picture was on the box of Wheaties and I thought he was a nice looking man. Now he just looks like an alien. I do feel bad for him because I have no doubt that in order to Keep up with the Kardashians he felt pressure to get plastic surgery. I guess that part worked. He does look plastic.

  6. Samigirl says:

    Blah blah blah.

    I need that dress though. It’s incredibly flattering. Maybe I can talk my MIL into making me one like it…hmmm…

  7. aims says:

    They are teflon!! Its crazy how this family always seems to bounce back. At this stage of the game, i think Kris would spin it in her favor. Lets be honest, shes never been a single mom. When there hasn’t been a man in her life, theres always been a nanny. Shes never had to struggle to work to pay for the needs of her kids. Shes not exactly busting her balls like a lot of other brave single moms.

  8. Bowers says:

    Don’t care. Like the picture though.

  9. Elceibeno08 says:

    It might be a little too late for the young Jenner girls. They have already been indoctrinated by their fame-whoring mother. Those two girls have tasted the sweet nectar of fame and money.

  10. lisa2 says:

    Bruce is a grown man. If he wanted out he would leave. He is successful in his own right. And has enough money on his own to live the life he seems to enjoy. So the fact that he is staying is his choice.

    I hate when we don’t hold adults responsible for the life choices they make. He an Kris don’t have small children. Heck we see couples splitting who have infants.

    If he is being treated like a doormat then he should stop lying in front of the door.

  11. garvels says:

    It just goes to show you how depraved society has become if these are the type of people who are elevated to success. They are nothing more than grifters who worship fame and money. They have no musical,theatrical or dance skills but yet they enjoy the recognition,money and fame of an A-list movie star…..I just don’t get it! Is Hollywood so devoid of talent that this is all it has to offer!

    • Elceibeno08 says:

      You said it. The people who actually have talent, like music writers, screenplay writers go un-noticed.

      • garvels says:

        I completely agree. The writers do not receive the recognition nor the money they deserve. I personally think the networks are taking the cheap way out by producing these reality shows. These shows do not cost much to produce and people must be watching them so why would the networks bother with spending the money to produce a great show with talented writers,cast and crew?

        I really feel for the talented writers, actors who have spent years perfecting their craft only to be over shadowed by Kim Kardashian’s fat ass and Honey Boo Boo.

    • RN says:

      It’s the American public who doesn’t demand greater talents (or any, in this case) from their entertainers. Let’s face it – somebody out there is watching this show, along with Honey Boo Boo and Jersey Shore. When people stop sitting slack-jawed in front of this crap night after night, then these parasites will be starved and drop off.

      I don’t see that happening in my lifetime, though. What you can show on network tv now versus even 15 or 20 years ago is dismaying.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Yes. and unfortunatley the same thing ggoes for all those fake housewives shows..each one becomes a “celebrity” by “creating” something with their name on it…what a farse. Even worse, millions buy into it.

  12. Gabby says:

    They have all that money and it appears that Bruce can’t rock a suit? It looks pretty cheap IMO.

  13. JenD says:

    One episode (maybe a year or two ago), Bruce was talking about how ignored he was in the house. Without saying a word, he left and went to Khloe’s house for the day (or two, I can’t remember specifics). No one even noticed. That has to suck.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      I remember that one….one of Bruce’s hobbies is flying model airplanes, and Kris tripped over one in the garage or something, causing a pissy kat rage, in which she went searching for him to hiss at, and couldnt find him…LOL ironically funny.

      • erika says:

        hard to know if this is just another PR spin…

        but. Despite the Dash curse, I still do respect Bruce Jenner. Standing alone, which he always has, even on TV. He’s never allowed himself to sink as low. Hard to do considering that klan.

        I hope he does this, get out while your reputation is still intact. those Dash/Roberts kids treat Bruce like S***t. They always remind him that they miss their real Dad’s fatherly advice, support, love, presence….slap in the face to Jenner as I truly believe he’s done 110% for them.

        Do they Kardashians realize where they all sit on the ladder of public hatred?

        #1 KIM – all the way, hated.
        #2 Kriss/Mom- she has a Satan in disguise presence about her. I love you Mom, looking at Kris, I know just how classy of a parent you are (me mum…not Kris)

        the rest of em’ ehhhh…Khloe is second to last and Bruce is last.

        But Kim? You gotta a lot of hate out there. I’m you #1 in that dept

      • deehunny says:

        @Erica- I think u make an excellent point. Whenever we talk about the favorite Kardashian, we all think Klhoe, and concisely overlook Bruce.

        They do treat him like crap & take him for granted. Sad.

  14. PinkG says:

    Like I said a million times before, this vile excuse for a human being should be forced to wear bag over her hideously deformed face.

  15. Dragonlady sakura says:

    All I can say is stunt cat! I can’t get my grown cat to sit still for a picture so how is “Mercy” doing it?

  16. palermo says:

    Look at her legs, totally spotted and badly fake tanned, just like Kim’s. I believe they can’t stand one another and eventually they will divorce. I read Bruce has gotten 100 million since his Olympic fame, he doesn’t need her “brand” to have a good life.

  17. Bonfire Beach says:

    The Kardashians are a “brand” just like Hefty is a brand of trash bag.

  18. jane says:

    she’s had 6 kids, looks great!
