Last week, we learned that Kris Jenner and Corey have broken up, and while there's been no official confirmation from the couple, the fact that they haven't denied the rumors speaks volumes.
Of course, Kris is the mastermind behind a family that's turned interpersonal drama interpersonal drama into a lucrative art form, so it's possible she and Corey are just milking the reports of their separation.
Not surprisingly, sources close to the Kard clan say the split is already being worked into new episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Many believe it's no accident that news of the breakup comes on the heels of reports that KUWTK will soon be canceled due to declining ratings that show no signs of turning around.
In fact, there are many who believe that Kris' decision to end her relationship with Gamble was motivated by a need for new storylines.
According to Radar Online, Kris and Corey split primarily so that their separation could be featured on new episodes of her family's failing reality series.
In a way, it's not surprising that Kris would offer her own relationship as a sacrifice to the gods of reality television.
After all, she's the one who's reportedly most concerned about the possibility of the show coming to an end.
While Kim and company are said to be happy to wave goodbye to the series that made them famous, sources say Kris is acutely aware of the important role that KUWTK plays in keeping her family relevant.
Now, those closest to the family say that whether or not she timed her split with Gamble in order to rescue the show, Kris is making the most out of her romantic misfortune.
Radar claims that Kris has already filmed "breakup scenes" with her youngest daughters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
“Kendall was even told to tell Kris how ‘great’ she looked," says a source who witnessed the filming of one such scene.
Of course, this situation begs the question:
Are Kris and Corey just faking their breakup for ratings?
Possibly, but if anyone were willing to actually end a relationship in order to save her family's reality show, it would be Kris Jenner.
