Tonight's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians ended with one of the show's trademark bows in which the problem is solved, lessons have been learned, and everyone moves on with a big smile. Only this week it involved the relationship of Bruce and Kris Jenner, and it felt as false as Kim Kardashian's eyelashes.
The episode began with the end of Kris's secret meeting with Todd Waterman. She said she felt like she got closure from it and skipped home to tell Bruce the happy news. Only, we saw absolutely no closure, just mad flirting down to the end, and Bruce was justifiably pissed that she even met with her ex in the first place -- especially because she did so behind his back. Telling him she'd been fantasizing about Todd for the last 23 years didn't exactly help either. (Side note: Why the hell were they doing this with Kylie standing right there?)
"What an idiot you are," he told Kris. "I don’t even know if I can trust you."
When she told her daughters she'd met with Todd, Kourtney called her a whore, then they arranged to have her take a lie detector test. Though the administrator declared that she passed, it didn't prove anything except what we all knew -- that Kim is her favorite daughter. When she was asked if she wanted to have an affair with Todd, the machine went wild, busting her. The administrator however gave her an out and said it could be due to old feelings being stirred. Uh huh. During that meeting with Todd, it looked like feelings were still being stirred BIG TIME.
Not so surprisingly, Bruce wasn't comforted by the results either, so the girls put plan number two into action in which they sent Bruce and Kris off to Malibu for a romantic two-night stay alone. Only neither seemed to want to be there at all. Instead of spending time together Bruce found the TV, and Kris found her ever-present glass of wine (does she ever NOT have one in her hand?!).
Finally, they got out the book Kim had sent containing pictures of them from their first date, their honeymoon, and plenty of other good times (thankfully none of them chewing steak for one another). They started to realize all they had been through together and committed to trying to put their relationship first again.
It was lovely ... but I don't think it's going to be that easy. One stroll down memory lane does not a marriage fix -- especially one that seems to be as broken as theirs. Throw in rumors that Kris is STILL seeing Todd Waterman, and things just aren't looking up for these two.
Do you think the reunion between Kris and Bruce Jenner we saw tonight will last?
