Kris Jenner made headlines this week after confirming that she has indeed separated from her husband of 22 years, Bruce Jenner. The two have two daughters together, Kendall and Kylie Jenner. On “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” Bruce moved out of the mansion to a Malibu beach pad to get some space for himself and the decision seems to have benefitted them both. However, it is questionable how well it has helped the marriage. And now, according to a new Wetpaint Entertainment report published on Oct. 11, Kris Jenner could be planning for them to get back together as a way of boosting ratings for the show.
Bruce has expressed his disappointed in “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” as he wanted it to be a family show. On a sit-down episode that served as a reunion, he was disgusted with the way the family was talking about sex. He found it to be rude and wrong. “Bruce feels he’s done with the Kardashian reality shows,” says a source with inside knowledge of the show. “He has told Kris and producers of the show that he wants out, but he is under contract to film one more season.”
And since ratings have dropped since Kim Kardashian had her baby and Kourtney isn't filming Penelope as much as she did Mason, it sounds like Jenner needs to be creative to get those ratings back. “There is no way E! will let Bruce out of the contract because viewers will want to see how the family deals with the split,” reveals the insider.“Bruce is stuck and under contract. He knows that the split storyline is inevitable. But in reality, all Bruce wants to do is golf, fly his helicopters and spend time with his kids, including Brandon and Brody.”
And Kris is planning on making the connection with her husband again. “[Kris] knows that a great storyline to win back viewers would be to watch Kris and Bruce to start dating again — and perhaps, even get married again. But it’s a pipe dream, because Bruce won’t allow it,” says the insider. “He has been very clear to everyone, behind-the-scenes. He won’t fake scenes or story-lines anymore.” It is just a shame for her that fans may be more curious about what is happening with Khloe and Lamar than to see Kris and Bruce reconcile.
