The Kardashians were back, and more … Kardashian than ever as Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 10 Episode 1 kicked off a new season Sunday.
As expected, the drama was off the chain as the family struggles to adapt to life after Bruce and Kris’ divorce, while Kim was trying feverishly to get pregnant.
Let’s break down those storylines and more from last night’s premiere …
Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 10 Episode 1 wasted no time delving into many topics familiar to those who follow the family in the tabloids.
Most notably, the deepening divide between the Jenners and the Kardashians, who are still "transitioning" in the wake of Bruce and Kris’ breakup.
Bruce Jenner is transitioning in other ways, of course, although you won’t hear or see this overtly when you watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians online.
Instead, you’ll see what amounts to foreshadowing, as the Olympic great revealed that he was feeling "so separated" from the rest of the Kardashian family.
"Kardashians over here and the Jenners over here," Bruce told Kourtney Kardashian, and perhaps fittingly, he felt isolated. "Little me in the middle."
The 65-year-old is now living in his own place in Malibu, Calif.
Diplomatically, Bruce said Kris could be "opinionated" and the two of them spent "24 years together, every day, all the time. So sometimes it’s a little tough."
On the flip side, living alone "can get pretty lonely not seeing the kids every day. I certainly wish they would be spending more time out at my house."
To cheer him up, his sons from his previous marriage, Brody and Brandon Jenner, decided to throw him a party, themed "Bruce on the Loose."
He was sad, however, that only Kendall Jenner showed up to it. No Kardashian sisters and not even one of his biological daughters, Kylie Jenner.
"I certainly would’ve hoped that more of the kids would’ve come," he lamented. "The only one who showed up was Kendall. I guess things have changed."
Later, the girls decided to make it up to him.
"It’s so good to have all my girls here," said Bruce at lunch, which they took him out for and which he said "means an awful lot" to him, as do they.
"I just want you all to know how much I’ve loved having you guys in my life. I’ve learned a lot from you. Hopefully I’ve taught you a lot. But it has been my honor."
We know the Bruce Jenner sex change situation is causing the family great stress, and is complicated to say the least, but there is still love there.
"Even though my mom and Bruce are divorced now, he’s still our dad and we love him," said Kim Kardashian. "We just have to get used to our new normal."
Speaking of Kim, she spent a great deal of time trying to make a baby with Kanye West and sharing way, way too many details about that process.
The quote of the night? Kim to teenage half-sister Kendall Jenner, who asked why she was still lying down when other people just arrived:
"The doctor said that when I have sex I have to lay down for, like, 10 to 20 minutes, so, I just had sex before you guys got here."
"He said it takes 10 minutes for a sperm to swim up there. I’m going to wait like five more minutes just for this to marinate inside of me."
The more you know. And wish you hadn’t.
