Why Didn't Kris Jenner Urge Kim Kardashian To Get Marriage Counseling On 'KKTNY'?

Tue, January 10, 2012 1:28pm EST by 26 Comments

Did anyone else watching this week’s episode of ‘KKTNY’ find it completely bizarre that Kris Jenner didn’t in any way encourage Kim to work at her marriage to Kris Humphries?

When Kim Kardashian confessed to her mother, Kris Jenner, in the back of a limousine  on the way to the airport in Dubai that “something in her relationship (with Kris Humphries) wasn’t right,” and that “married life just isn’t what I thought it would be with him,” Kris Jenner had a strange reaction, in my mind.

She didn’t get upset or overly excited. She didn’t put her arm around her daughter or touch her hand to comfort her. Neither did she look shocked or give her any advice … at all.

Kim had asked her mother if her feelings about her marriage to Kris Humphries were normal and Kris Jenner replied that they weren’t. “This is the stage in your relationship where you should be obsessed with each other,” she told her daughter — who isn’t even distraught, by the way.

But what’s so confusing is that despite assuring her daughter that the situation doesn’t sounds “normal,” she doesn’t advise her to get any marriage counseling or to even have a serious sitdown with Kris when she gets back from Dubai. Neither does she offer to help Kim and Kris at all. She says nothing.

Does this sound like how YOUR mother would act if you had just dropped the bombshell that your marriage was on the rocks after just six weeks and a $10 million wedding?

Mine (may she rest in peace) would have flipped out, and then rushed my husband and I into marriage counseling — not to a divorce lawyer.

But forget about me and my mom — what do the pros say about Kris Jenner’s reaction to Kim’s shocking announcement about her troubled marriage?

“It’s really strange,” believes relationship expert Cooper Lawrence. “Unless the mother really hated the husband or had felt her daughter was coerced into the marriage — and there’s no evidence that Kris Jenner felt that way – seeing herr daughter in pain should have elicited more of a reaction from Kris.”

“If Kris Jenner felt her daughter was in pain, she should have tried to alleviate it,” believes Lawrence, who is also the author of the new book The Yoga Club, “Kris should have offered to sit down with Kim and Kris Humphries or to help them get counseling.”

Kris Jenner’s reaction is especially abnormal for a woman who has had a successful marriage, believes relationship expert Diana Falzone. “The smart advice would have been for her to suggest that Kim and Kris meet with the pastor who married them or to get family counseling.”

Diana believes “a mother’s opinion” is very powerful, so when she told Kim the marriage was abnormal and didn’t encourage her to work at it, it sent a message to Kim that she could throw in the towel. If Kris had said — calm down, let’s figure this out -- maybe they’d still be married.

This isn’t all.

Pyschologist Jeff Gardere of Healthguru.com insists that “this is the time when (Kris Jenner) should have pulled out all guns and said — ‘how can we help’ and should have encouraged Kim to address the issues in her marriage immediately.”

So why does pyschologist Gardere think Kris Jenner refrained from urging Kim to get mental help. “Maybe she’s overwhelmed with what’s on her plate and doesn’t have the energy to give her daughter what she needs. She may not have the emotional energy to give Kim more than superficial interaction.”

Wow! In any case — the shrinks and relationship experts agree- Kris Jenner’s reaction to her daughter’s shocking confession about her marriage WAS strange and they also agree — most moms would have immediately suggested counseling.

Coincidentally, Jenner appeared on Cooper Lawrence’s radio show – Scott & Todd  on PLJ in New York, the day after the divorce announcement to promote her then- new book, Kris Jenner … and All Things Kardashian, and claims Cooper, she didn’t come across as emotional at all when we asked about Kim filing for divorce. She just said “it’s a tough thing we’re going through.” At the time, we all thought, it was very strange.

Agreed! What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Should Kris Jenner have immediately urged Kim to try and figure out what was wrong in her marriage, rather than just throwing in the towel?

Kris didn’t try to tell Kim to get marriage counseling because it’s been proven that scene was done AFTER Kim filed for divorce and had been back from Dubai, in other words the scene in the back of the limo was staged after the fact, a month or so after the fact. boycottkim.com

As with all reality shows, there are a lot of things that go on behind the scenes that we do not see. Kris H. could have been a total jerk and his camp may have had some leagal documents signed for the public not to see that side of him. As bad as Kim wanted a husband, I don’t think this was all her fault. Didn’t see like he was ready for her lifestyle. I wish the both of them luck.

A mismatch…certainly. He seems like a nice, normal guy trying to do what he does best in Minnesota. She seems like an entrepeneur in every circumstance she approaches,which is not necessarily bad.
It takes a lot to make a marriage work in the best of times. Each has to give, and I didn’t see much giving. It is a 50-50 proposition.

Wow. Up until now I thought maybe that all the hype with the Kardashians was unfounded but now, this has changed my mind. This episode has clearly been edited to show something other than what was really was going on. Kris’ responses to Khloe were completely cut off. I thin if we got to hear the full dialogue, it would have nothing to do with what was portrayed. If you noticed, when Kim entered the stage in Dubai she said out loud to the public that she wanted to return to Dubai with her husband. Than in the interview, it was made out that she had to pause and think about it. She didn’t pause to think about it on the stage. It’s apparent to me that the dialogue in the car was scripted and a VO in place. They are being deceptive. This is not good.

Why should she? KH is as dumb as rocks and completely irritating. He’s like a big cretin. I feel sorry for anyone who makes the mistake of marrying that doofus.

I think the car ride was added in after Kim had already made her divorce announcement but before the tv show started airing. It was weird that
the car windows were completly blacked out and you could not see anything out the windows if they were driving in Dubai. How easy would it be for the Kardashians who own the show and have final edit to add additional footage that slams Kris Humphries. Even with their editing he looks normal. This episode seals the deal for me that Kim just married for the cameras. Who leaves their new husband for a weekend in Mystic Ct and takes their mom to Dubai instead of their husband. The episode shows that Kim thought she could be married and single at the same time. She loves the spotlight more than she can love any man.

i totally agree with you because kim was wearing the same outfit that she was after the divorce when her movie shoot was done and she was seen outside…it was the same white top, black blazer, make up and hairdo…it obviously looks after the divorce…they just needed that extra drama to make her look innocent and in pain

Another thing that I thought was odd about the situation was that Kris compared Kim’s marriage to her marriage with Robert Kardashian, which ended with infidelity and divorce. If that marriage was actually real, which I highly doubt, it would have been nice for her to point out, “It’s sort of strange but you’re also in a strange situation. You got married on television show. You’ve had cameras around while you’re adjusting to marriage. You’re living with your sister, her boyfriend and their kid. Of course you’re miserable with him.”

They are cool calm and collected because this is their movie they are acting in only using real lives to walk over and step on.

I actually had this same conversation with my Mum. My mum is a pyschotherapist and from the beginning has always wondered why people are upset that Kim pulled the plug on her marriage because my mum has seen and heard it all from her clients. However, after this scene she, too, is wondering what is really going on with this family. A normal mother’s reaction would be to question her daughter’s thoughts and recommended to that they seek counseling. Furthermore, a real mother would have wondered why her daughter wanted to marry someone as quickly as she did. Such an odd scene that was extremely edited. I sincerely hope this was not all a money-making scheme but when my Mum, who is one of the most impartial people I have ever met starts having doubts, something is not right.

Nothing about the Kardashians is normal. If my mother had to “get me to counseling” just over a month I was married, THAT wouldn’t be normal. In fact, as close as parents are to their children, it is NOT their job to get them marriage counseling. This WHOLE article is stupid.

That’s it. I’m done with anything and everything Kardashian. We have ALL been duped. She has gotten FILTHY RICH because we are stupid enough to fall for there BS. I can honestly say without hesitation that me and my friends will NEVER buy anything connected/endorsed by ANY of these people. This is my LAST comment about this so called woman. As for Kris H. I really hope this guy makes a fortune because he was duped just like US!!!!

Just Google “Kim kardashian December 7 2011 people.com” and you will see that she is wearing the same top half of the outfit, hairstyle, makeup, and nail polish. Her reality show is just as fake as she is!!!!!!

Well considering how the show went off soon after we will have to wait and see what else Kris Jenner said to Kim and not jump to conclusions!

I was thinking that this was taped well after the announcement of the divorce and then edited into the reality show to explain the 72 day marriage.

just listen to their conversation in the car. it sounds so FAKE… especially when Kim is telling Kris about not being entirely happy with the marriage and when camera is showing Kris, did u notice the change of Kims voice??? Like it would be recorded later ??? really pay attention, I was shocked was staged and fake this whole conversation sounded.

The car scene has some really poor editing and the sound quality was definitely different. I can’t believe their sound person is honestly that tone deaf–he/she needs to find another job. When the lips won’t match the voice over, changing the subject focus is utilized. Oddly enough, when things are done live, the camera will usually follow the main subject that’s talking unless it’s a group scene or a thought projected dialogue. This is low quality work….
