Bruce Jenner was not a willing participant in filming scenes for “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” the same day he and Kris Jenner officially announced their split, although that’s what Kris would have everyone believe. Bruce wants out of the Kardashian family reality TV show, but he is contractually bound to continue to appear, according to an exclusive report on October 11 from Radar Online.
The Show Must Go On Despite the Split
Bruce Jenner was seen at the studio shooting scenes with daughters Kylie and Kendall shortly after the Jenner separation was announced. But he was there under duress. Thanks to Bruce’s personal manager, who also happens to be his estranged wife Kris Jenner, Bruce is locked into an ironclad contract to continue appearing on the show, which still has one more season to go.
Bruce Will Honor the Contract, but on His Own terms
Bruce reportedly told Kris and E!, the producers of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” that he wanted out of the contract because no longer wanted to do the show, but his request fell on deaf ears. Since they won’t let Bruce out of the contract, he has made it very clear to everyone involved that he will honor the contract, but only on his terms. Apparently he’s taking a hard-line course based on the terms below..
- Bruce has stated that he will no longer fake scenes or storylines. (Apparently Bruce wants nothing further to do with stages scenes and trumped up story lines. See Kardashian Family Lay the Groundwork to Exploit Lamar Odom on Reality TV
- Bruce does not want to be filmed in scenes that require him and Kris Jenner to interact with each other alone.
- Bruce will only participate in scenes with his daughters Kendall and Kylie (as he did the day the split was announced).
Filming will continue for the next few months.
What Kris Jenner Wants and Bruce Refuses to Do
Last year Kris Jenner inked an unprecedented $40 million dollar deal with E! for three more seasons of the once popular “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” They still have one more season to go. But the ratings have dropped drastically for the past few episodes. See New Proof the Kardashian Family Empire is about to Collapse
Kris Jenner wants to use her separation from Bruce Jenner as the main storyline for season 9 of the family’s reality TV show. She strongly feels that staging a reunion with her estranged husband will boost the show’s flagging ratings. See Kardashian Family Matriarch Kris Jenner Facing a Divorce of Her Own. But Bruce has flatly refused.
A source close to production told RadarOnline that Bruce is done with the Kardashian reality TV shows.
So it looks like Kris Jenner and the Kardashian clan will have to abide by Bruce’s wishes if they want to include him in any of the episodes they’re shooting for season 9. Bruce has made it clear that he’ll film on his own terms, or not at all. He’s finally laying down the law.
