Annnnndddd the plot thickens. Just when we thought things couldn't possibly get more confusing or bizarre between them, the news emerges that Bruce Jenner dumped Kris Jenner -- not the other way around.
According to Kris' sister Karen Houghton, "Bruce left. He walked out on her, and I think he’s not coming back. He couldn't take the yelling anymore and stuff."
Huh. If that's the case, then he's sure doing a great job of making us believe that he and Kris are on their way to getting back together, what with him holding her hand in public and all.
And then there was Kris' sweet anniversary message for Bruce, which led us all to believe they're having second thoughts about calling it quits after spending 23 years together. Are these two a couple o' decent actors or what?
Houghton also added that the couple is getting along better since the separation, and she insists that Kris is single. I guess we can put the Ben Flajnik hookup rumors to rest once and for all. (Damn.)
But if this is really true and Bruce did decide to quit Mama Kris once and for all -- why the heck is he agreeing to the little charade of making it look like they're still in love?
Duh. OF COURSE it has everything to do with money and fame. What else is there as far as the KDash crew is concerned? Think about it for a second. It has to be kind of a drag to be married to Kris, so why in the hell wouldn't you high tail it out of there unless there were some sort of generous incentive pulling you back in?
Bruce may be a lot of things, but stupid certainly isn't one of them. And as long as Keeping Up With the Kardashians is still going on, he might as well milk it for all it's worth and make a few extra bucks off his marriage to Kris. (Really, can you blame the guy?)
But one thing's for sure, as soon as that show runs its course? Exactly. Bye bye Bruce Jenner. For good this time.
Are you surprised that Bruce is the one who called it quits?
