If you've been wondering why Kris and Bruce Jenner announced their separation only to then show up everywhere together, the answer is simple, says Kris: The sorta not married anymore pair are still best friends and have no plans for divorce. Kris told Kathie Lee Gifford during a podcast: "I adore Bruce. Bruce and I are and will remain best friends. We’re just separated, we’re not divorcing." She even hinted that the two might indulge in the occasional booty call. Ewww.
Kris told Kathie Lee that the two had come to a seriously bad place in their marriage arguing over, among other things I'm sure, whether Kylie and Kendall should drop out of high school, and owning a gun. Kris said: "We came to a place where this isn’t healthy, the way we were treating each other."
I'm sure Kim, Kanye, and baby North moving in with Kris didn't help matters much either.
Well, anyone who has caught even a few of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians episodes could see that Kris and Bruce, while they had built a big life together, weren't exactly on the same page most of the time.
So if they've decided to a build a different kind of relationship -- one that allows them to continue to parent and run their businesses (which is essentially their kids) anyway -- then I say good for them. Too many couples drag it on for too long, and by the time they end it, they can't stand each other and the kids have been damaged.
I never thought I'd say that Kris Jenner is sounding pretty mature here, but I think she is. She adds: "We are better people and happier just spending time apart than we are spending time together."
Right on. I'm all for sacrificing things for family -- but when it comes to your mental health, and you've already given it all you've got, then sometimes you've got to give each other space. Or divorce papers.
Besides, the Kardashian and Jenner kids are all pretty much grown up now anyway, and they don't need two parents who are at each other's throats just so they can see them under the same roof occasionally.
Do you think Kris made the right decision? Can space make a marriage happier?
