Kris and Bruce Jenner’s separation may feel like old news to us by now, but that was the main topic at hand during the season 9 premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The episode was filmed just as the couple was deciding where their future was headed, and cameras were rolling to capture the family’s stunned reaction to the news.
Last night, E! premiered the ninth season of its hit reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and if you have, in fact, been keeping up with the Kardashians, then you know that Bruce and Kris Jenner’s marriage is essentially over.During the show last night, the couple of 22 years broke the news to their children, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Rob, Kendall and Kylie, as well as Kourtney’s baby daddy Scott Disick.
Before the family meeting, Kris and Bruce discussed their future, with Bruce letting Kris know that he decided to extend the lease on his Malibu beach house, even though she was against it. “To be honest, I just don’t see myself going back,” heconfessed. “We both seem to be doing better with our space.” Kris finally agreed, and after the two decided to officially separate, the tough task of breaking the news to the kids was all that was left.
The kids all knew something was up when Bruce and Kris call a family meeting, and Bruce was the one to deliver the news. “Kris and I are deciding what we want to do in the future and where we want to go. And both Mom and I seem to be very happy with the arrangement we have now. So for the time being, we’re going to keep the beach house. Nobody’s getting a divorce, nobody’s doing anything right now.”Kim and Kourtney both questioned the logic behind the living arrangements, saying that the more time Bruce and Kris spend apart, the more comfortable they’ll be with being alone. Kris tried to sum up their feelings by saying, “I think we both decided that we want to be first and foremost family and friends. We’re better as friends than we are the other way.”
Of course, the main question that comes to mind is how in the hell the Kardashian and Jenner kids could possibly have been surprised by this news, considering Bruce and Kris had been living apart for months, but hey, stranger things have happened in a marriage than that.
So what did you think of last night’s premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians? Did Bruce and Kris Jenner handle the situation the right way? Tell us in the comments!
