It’s a great week to be a blind item, my friends. They’re really getting a lot of opportunities to say “I told you so.” Yesterday Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias split up after twelve years and solved a blind item about their impending breakup in the process. And now the royal family of publicity stunts, the Kardashian-Jenner klan, have brought another blind item to fruition with not only a separation but also a plotline involving family members taking sides. You gotta have conflict for good TV, and Kris Jenner was running out of ratings for her daily IV drip.
Radar Online is reporting that Kendall and Kylie Jenner are living out their very own Parent Trap, with each of them taking a different side in their parents’ split. Kendall is apparently splitting her time between Bruce’s Malibu house and the family mansion, since according to a source she’s closer to her dad. Kylie, on the other hand, is siding with Mama Jenner, “because they have always been so much alike. She is obsessed with having the latest designer handbag, flashiest car, and loves being the center of attention.” Judging by the price of the gift bags she gave out at her sweet sixteen, I believe it.
And what do you know, this situation is eerily similar to a post on Blind Gossip from a year ago focused on a reality show planning to boost ratings with two new storylines, one of which involved the family taking sides in a “falling out.”
Everyone is actually getting along pretty well, so this “falling out” is going to be completely fake. It will primarily involve two cast members, but the rest of the cast will be divided into two teams who will each support one side. Hey, they need something for people to talk about. Even if it isn’t real.
SOLVED! As the blind item update points out, and as we concluded yesterday, the Jenners waited so long to officially announce the separation because ratings for Keeping Up With the Kardashians just happen to be dropping recently. Now that Kris’ talk show has been canceled, how else is she supposed to survive? This is a life or death situation, people.
