This week’s episode of ‘KUWTK’ (July 15) revealed how seriously dysfunctional Kris and Bruce’s marriage is; with each partner needling and nagging each other relentlessly in front of their daughters – awful!
“You have a dark side that no one else sees but me,” Kris accused Bruce in front of Khloe, who bemoaned: “No matter what, my mom tends to blame Bruce for everything.”
“Just envisioning my mom nagging Bruce is giving me a headache,” confessed Khloe.
Khloe, who was so vocal during the episode about Kris and Bruce’s unhealthy behavior, of course has the only good romantic relationship in the family. Not only is she just plain deeply in love with husband Lamar and vice versus, but she actually spends a lot of time talking with him, trying to be sensitive to his needs and then working out their issues.
Not so for the battling Jenners. Emasculating Kris calls Bruce a “hot mess” and tells him “you have no image.” Bruce tells daughter Kylie that her mother is “nuts” and “horrible.”
When Bruce tries to get Kris out of the house to leave on a trip, she yells back at him: “if you say let’s go one more time, I will stab myself in the eye with a fork.” Now that’s really nice for your younger daughters, Kendall, 16, and Kylie, 14, to hear. Kris and Bruce – you are terrible marital role models for your daughters, screaming at and threatening each other. No wonder, Kourtney is terrified of commitment, after growing up witnessing this kind of nastiness.
Khloe has an eye-opening view of Kris and Bruce’s complete cycle of negativity with each other, during their stressful trip. “It’s actually painful to travel with Bruce Jenner,” she warns Khloe. “He can snap and became crazy if he has no control.” Then she calls him “Mr. Perky” and confides in Khloe that she can’t wait to have a “peaceful lunch” without him.
Now, it’s not that Kris is the only offender here at all. It turns out that Bruce is a little crazy control freak about their business appearances. But why hasn’t this bickering duo checked into marital counseling long ago, instead of relentlessly repeating their pattern of insults.
Kris and Bruce – you’d be so much better served and so would all your daughters if you two would try and talk out your issues instead of acting out like nut bars in front of your family.
Bruce’s promised crazy side does make its appearance as Kris and Khloe get dressed and made up. He paces, he nit picks, he nags.
“How many people does it take to get you ready? Let’s move it!” he annoys. “Let’s stay on schedule.”
When the trio arrive at their event on time, he practically hyperventilates trying to get out of the car. “Come on guys, let’s go. I’m getting out or climbing out.”
When his wife and step daughter don’t hop to it instantly even though it’s raining outside, he gets so worked up, he starts swearing.
“Open the f**king door, I’m getting out,” he rages. Khloe is shocked.
What’s even more shocking is that when Kris and Bruce get home, Bruce is completely oblivious about his behavior. “I thought we had a good time,” he tells Khloe and his wife. “It’s shocking to me that you guys can do anything without me.”
He’s actually feeling so good that he walks over and hugs and nuzzles Kris, who looks like the cat who ate the canary. She’s thrilled that she’s RIGHT – she’s exposed her husband’s craziness to Khloe and Khloe has new sympathy for her mom.
But “winning” here isn’t the point Kris, and neither is denial Bruce. You two SHOULDN’T be comfortable with your dysfunctional state. You shouldn’t be trying to spend your time trying to get your daughters on each of “your sides.” This isn’t a war! It’s a marriage, and a marriage that should be loving, not a war zone.
You clearly can only break out of your dysfunctional behavior if you have outside intervention. Sign up for marital counseling now.
You may not end up providing as much drama in KUWTK but it’s much more important to be great marital role models to your kids – don’t you agree Hollywoodlifers? Tell me now.
