Bruce Jenner Says He's Not Getting Out of 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' Alive
It seems like Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian Odom and Kris Jenner have been doing most of the promoting for the seventh season premiere of their reality show, but has anyone bothered to check in with Bruce Jenner?
USA Today reports that Bruce, the often-indifferent patriarch of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians clan, has pretty much accepted that there is no end in sight for the first family of reality TV.
"I'm not getting out of this alive," he joked. "You know when my last show is? The last show I'm going to do is Kylie's wedding. When we do her wedding, I'm done, OK? Just send me to reality heaven."
Kylie Jenner, 14, and big sis Kendall, 16, have been slowly following in the limelight-ridden footsteps of their stepsisters, mostly with modeling and TV-hosting gigs.
Bruce also addressed the "rough patch" he and wife Kris face this season, as teased in the press material for the show.
"Oh my God, does it say that? I've been married to Kris for 21 years, and there have always been rocky times. And it's nothing special," he says. "Our relationship is very good. I think the reason our relationship has lasted for 21 years is we're both family-oriented. We have 10 children between us. That's such a bond. That'll always keep us together."
Some of those 10 children who are rarely seen are Bruce's sons, Burt, Brandon and Brody. Bruce told USA Today that viewers will see a little bit of Brandon this season, along with his fiancée, Leah Felder. The two are tying the knot in two weeks.
"Her dad is Don Felder, one of the original Eagles," Bruce says. "She's grown up in the music business, and she is an absolute superstar."
We won't see Brandon and Leah get married on TV, though, and Bruce says we probably won't see Kourtney and Scott Disick's vows either.
"Nah. I would be shocked. They're kind of doing just great the way things are going. Scott's been a great dad, I have to admit. He's out there trying to make it. He's doing good."
As for his most famous/infamous stepdaughter, Kim, Bruce says he "has no idea what the deal is" regarding her relationship with Kanye West... and he likes it that way.
"One thing I learned is keep your nose out of everybody's business. I don't bring the subject up," he says. "He's never been around. On Mother's Day, he stopped by and I kind of met him for the first time but didn't really talk to him. The jury's out. I don't know the guy. It's hard to make an opinion. I've seen on him on TV.
"I just want to Kim to be happy," he adds.
The season premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians airs tomorrow at 9 p.m. on E!
