Kris pushes for fake Bruce reunion
Kris Jenner supposedly wants to stage a TV marital reunion with estranged husband Bruce to boost ratings.
The Kardashian family matriarch and spouse Bruce Jenner announced their separation on Tuesday after 22 years of marriage.
The pair’s union has been documented for years on reality series Keeping Up With the Kardashians and it is claimed Kris is willing to act like her marriage hasn’t failed to keep up appearances onscreen.
“Kris has no desire to get back together with Bruce, but she wants to film a ‘reunion’ of them attempting to work things out, which would all be designed for the show,” a source told Radar Online.
“It would be far from reality.”
Bruce purportedly has no interest in appearing on the programme, but he is contractually obligated.
Kris brokered an estimated $40 million deal with E! last year for three seasons of the show and there is one more season left to film.
“Bruce feels he’s done with the Kardashian reality shows,” the insider revealed.
“He has told Kris and producers of the show that he wants out, but he is under contract to film one more season.”
Apparently Bruce won’t submit to Kris’ demands for a reunion storyline and is adamant about being authentic in front of the camera.
“Kris has become obsessed with the slipping ratings,” the source said.
“She knows that a great storyline to win back viewers would be to watch Kris and Bruce to start dating again — and perhaps, even get married again. But it’s a pipe dream, because Bruce won’t allow it.
“He has been very clear to everyone, behind-the-scenes. He won’t fake scenes or storylines anymore.”
On Thursday night Kris posted an image of herself, Bruce and her two stepsons Brody and Brandon Jenner smiling for the camera, with the caption reading:
“Another amazing night @brodyjenner @sprandoni and Bruceeeeee!!! Too fun I love you guys!!! Best hearts #sorryTMZgotitwrongAGAINLOL.”
