Kris Jenner: Already using her separation as a storyline

Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner

It hasn’t even been a full day since Kris Jenner announced that she had successfully siphoned the last ounce of willpower out of Bruce Jenner and banished him to the tainted wasteland known as “Malibu”, but she’ll be damned if she’s not going to immediately turn around and use her newfound separation as a storyline for her show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. There are no misfortunes in the Kardashian household; only famewhore opportunities in disguise! TMZ reports …

Sources connected with the show tell TMZ … on Tuesday, after announcing the separation, Bruce went off to shoot scenes with Kylie and Kendall. We’re told the upcoming season will show Bruce and Kris living separately but coming together at various points for family events … and there will be a lot of them. What’s more … we’re told the family is very conscious of the fact that they can make more in syndication.

Sure, why the hell not? They managed to turn Kim’s divorce into a season-long storyline. They’ve managed to milk Khloé’s crumbling marriage into publicity. To Kris, this is just another plot device they can turn into a bit for the show. For she is a Kardashian, and there’s no personal issue that can’t be exploited for ratings. Seriously, Kim could be diagnosed with Ebola Gulf A and the first thing they’d do is come up with a way for Kourtney and Kim to throw wine at each other in a hospital waiting room.
