Kathie Lee Gifford: Bruce & Kris Jenner Lives Are ‘Out Of Control’
“I think they’ve just been under such unbelievable pressure, but there’s just so many things going on,” Kathie Lee revealed on her show Oct. 9. about her close friends.
“The last time I was at Kris’ house, if you walked through, in every different room of the house, somebody was meeting with someone about a new deal,” she explained. “If it’s always about the deals, and you can’t find your husband in your house or your wife in your house, or your kids, because there’s so much going on, it’s just gotten out of control.”
The TV spotlight has been on the Kardashians for eight seasons now. They’re currently filming season nine, in which they will reportedly focus on the separation for the plot.
“When you shine such a spotlight on someone’s life, and your life becomes ‘now we’re in season eight, now we’re in season nine,’ and that’s how you’re viewing your life,” Hoda Kotb said. “You wonder what part of your life is just yours to live.”
Kathie Lee: I Hope They Reconcile For Kendall & Kylie
Kathie Lee, the godmother to Bruce and Kris’ daughters, Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner, revealed that she’s known about the split for a “long, long time.”
“Every time I’ve been out there and seen her, I saw him as well,” she said, explaining that the couple was still on great terms. “When I was with her and the phone rang, it was Bruce calling in. When I went out to do her talk show this past summer, that’s when we had the chance to really talk about it. Who says I can’t keep secrets?”
Naturally, Kathie Lee is worried about her godchildren.
“The best thing they have is not stuff,” Kathie Lee said. “The best thing they have is those two girls together, my godchildren, Kendall and Kylie. I’m just worried about them.”
“I’m hoping for the family’s sake that they’re gonna be reconciled,” she added. “They really do love one another.”
