A lot of you have given me shit for liking the reality TV super-fam Keeping up with the Kardashians. All I’ll be honest, I was NEVER interested in the show. I was forced into watching and I was instantly annoyed by them all. It wasn’t long, however, until I was sucked into the drama. And now, I’ll admit, “My name is Erin, and I like Keeping up with the Kardashians.”
I’m not going to explain myself. If you really want to know why I like them, read this and this. But I have a new respect now. After watching this seasons premiere I have a lot of respect for Bruce and Kris Jenner and the decision they made to end their relationship.
Trust me, I was as broken up as anyone after the hearing the news of the split! I love them together..although it was starting to be pretty apparent things weren’t working. I was equally (if not more!) upset with the Khloe and Lamar split..but I can’t really relate to that situ (thank God!).
Here’s the deal. Things are unconventional these days. Because, the conventional ways..well, they aren’t really working, are they?? So people have kids before marriage, and married couples can separate without the huge battles, and gay people can marry, and the lawsuit drama that most people think is divorce, doesn’t have to be.
Here’s what a civil break up can look like. It looks like mom praising dad’s name rather than shit talking- and vice versa. It looks like kids making a smooth(er) transition and parents staying friends. It is possible to maintain? That is yet to be determined. But for now it seems this is a good choice for the Jenner’s and for my friends in the same boat. (Minus the billion-dollar empire.)
Look people, it’s no surprise that marriages end..it’s reality. But how you handle it, can make a world of difference, especially to the kids involved. Isn’t this what adults should do?? Don’t get me wrong. I know for a lot of you, this isn’t possible because feelings are hurt and money is involved or whatever. But ending it before you hate eachother? Sounds like a good option.
BTW..Brody Jenner is HOT! Just sayin..
