On Tuesday, the two most famous Kardashians who are not Kardashians, Kris and Bruce Jenner, formally announced their separation after 22 years of marriage.
In a statement to E! News, the couple revealed (?) they are living apart, a fact that has been public knowledge since Kris' daughter Khloe riffed on it with Jay Leno back in June. ("Well, they're not having problems," said Khloe then, even though the second half of her sentence—"but they still like to live apart"—would seem to disprove her thesis.) The Jenners told E! they "will always have much love and respect for each other" and "remain remain best friends," adding that "as always, our family will remain our number one priority." One would assume they mean this in the financial, brand-conscious sense.
Neither Jenner has officially raised the topic of divorce (possibly because they don't want to steal the spotlight from their children's impending divorces). Bruce will spend his days wandering aimlessly around upscale department stores, sitting quietly on a bench in the shoe area so as to be "out of the way," and giving way too much information when the happy hour server asks him "How ya doin' this evening?" Kris, will likely search for clarity and guidance where she always has: in the inspirational Instagram posts of Sean "Diddy" Combs.
Kris Jenner spends a lot of time Instagramming inspirational Instagrams Instagrammed by Diddy.
"Love this," wrote Jenner, reposting a Diddy Instagram of black text reading, "Dear God, Today I woke up. I am healthy. I am alive. Thank You."
"LOVE this," wrote Jenner, reposting a Diddy Instagram of black text reading, "Live every moment, Laugh every day, Love beyond words."
"I kind of LOVE this quote @iamdiddy," wrote Jenner, reposting a Diddy Instagram of a Chinese proverb reading "Failure is not falling down but refusing to get up. ~ Chinese proverb."
Sometimes Kris Jenner posts cell phone pictures she has taken of her computer screen while reading an inspirational Diddy Instagram. Sometimes Kris Jenner posts a Diddy quote ("Preach @iamdiddy") and then, seven months later, posts the same Diddy quote. Diddy is a veritable brainyquotes(dot)com(slash)quotes(slash)keywords for Kris Jenner. Diddy is Kris Jenner's Eleanor Roosevelt.
Since Diddy's Instagram has so often been a source of strength for Kris Jenner, we have assembled a tidy collection of 11 of his most inspirational quotes here. We encourage you and Kris Jenner to revisit this list any time you're experiencing a lot of drama, your husband moves out of your house, you're ready for the freakin' weekend, baby, etc. Positive vibes only.
