Kris Jenner and husband Bruce Jenner have been split for a while. She has gone on to date Corey Gamble. He has supposedly stepped out with Kris’ best friend. But he as also supposedly moved forward with plans to become a woman. Take that all with as many grains of salt as you need without raising your blood pressure.
Now TMZ reports that it is official: Bruce and Kris are split, and a date for the divorce to be final is set: March 23, 2015.
Kris Jenner is, of course, the matriarch that holds her family’s fortune-raking empire together. As both mom and manager — a hybrid they call “momager” — she oversees her daughters’ modeling careers, prepares the proper exploitation for their Keeping Up with the Kardashians hit reality TV show and all its spinoffs, and still manages to find the time to publish a cookbook that offends people.
Bruce Jenner may be better off now, at least according to his mother. TMZ says that Kris filed for divorce in September, 2014. She listed the date of actual separation as June 1, 2013. But Bruce’s mum says she thinks Bruce himself did the leaving.
“He is ecstatically happy right now,” Esther Jenner says. “When I talk to him I can hear it in his voice and he’s spending a lot more time with his kids. I don’t think he’s a bit lonely. He seems like he’s himself again.”
Esther says Kris was a control freak who wouldn’t let Bruce carry his own money.
“I don’t think she treated anybody very well,” Esther said. “She’s domineering – it’s do it her way, or there’s no way. I had very little to do with Kris. I stayed away from her as much as I could. She could insult you with a big smile on her face, I know. What do you do with a person like that? You’re going to avoid them if possible. She was backstabbing as far as my grandchildren were concerned, and that is something I can’t stand.”
As for the divorce itself, Esther is clear about that.
“I hope she changes her name back to Kardashian I don’t want her to carry the name,” Esther said.
But would Bruce want to stray too far from the KUWTK brand? He and Kris do have kids together, although he is reportedly skipping the Kardashian Christmas soiree.
But there are also reports that Bruce might want a KUWTK spinoff of his own — one that documents his transition to living as a woman.
Have some more salt.
