[Blind Gossip] It’s time to boost the ratings, so this show is planning two new storylines. You thought reality shows were real? Not really! The storylines could change before filming, but as of today, they are part of the next season.
The first storyline involves the current relationship of two of the cast members. It’s going to be about “control” issues. More specifically, it’s about a man controlling a woman – what she says, what she does, what she wears, what she eats, who she associates with. It will have sinister overtones, and will try to play into women’s natural sympathies for another woman who is being abused. No, she isn’t really being abused. They just want her to become a more sympathetic character.
The second storyline will involve a family “falling out”. Everyone is actually getting along pretty well, so this “falling out” is going to be completely fake. It will primarily involve two cast members, but the rest of the cast will be divided into two teams who will each support one side. Hey, they need something for people to talk about. Even if it isn’t real.

Two cast members featured in “Control” storyline: Kanye and Kim
Two cast members featured in “Fallout” storyline: Kris and Bruce
Kourtney’s baby and Kim’s baby and Lamar’s move forced last season’s story lines into rewrite, so the two story lines we discussed last year will now be used for next season.
The “Control” story line has been building for the past few months, with Kim allowing her wardrobe to be controlled by Kanye and his “stylist”, and her travel to be controlled by Kanye’s travel schedule.
Kris Jenner can talk all she wants about a wedding, but she has been unable to manipulate Kanye as she had planned. Did you notice that he’s missing in the KUWTK official photo?
When the Kimye relationship does fall apart, watch for discussion about Kanye’s “Control” issues to surface, and how bad it made Kim feel about herself. You didn’t think the split was going to be Kim’s fault, did you? Never! Kanye will be made out to be the villain in this story.
In November of last year, before the story line got changed, HollywoodLife.com started talking about Kanye’s “control” issues. From HollywoodLife.com:
Khloe Kardashian Worries that Kanye West Dominates Kim Kardashian
Should Khloe be concerned that her big sis Kim is in a controlling relationship with Kanye? HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE details on what Khloe thinks about Kim’s rapper boyfriend.
The Kardashian women call the shots, at least most of the time. But Khloe Kardashian thinks Kim Kardashian is losing her edge now that she’s dating the “domineering” Kanye West.
A friend of the Kardashian family tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “Khloe doesn’t dislike Kanye, she just doesn’t like the way Kim acts around him. She thinks Kim kowtows around Kanye and lets him run the show. Kanye has a very domineering personality and Khloe is concerned that Kim is losing herself in the relationship. Kim is usually the captain of the ship, but when she is around Kanye she lets him make all the decisions. Look at the way Kim dresses — she dresses for Kanye.
“Khloe and Lamar have a very balanced relationship and she wants to see the same for Kim and Kanye. All of the women in the Kardashian family pretty much rule their men, this is not the case when it comes to Kim and Kanye, ” said the friend.
PMK will probably make Khloe do a similar interview since the story line was pushed back. We’re sure she’ll come up with more examples of how evil and controlling Kanye is to bolster her point.
Yes, Kris loves her villains! In the “Fallout” story line, the crumbling of Kris and Bruce’s marriage will be pinned on Bruce. Kris is already moving things in that direction, as detailed in this story from RadarOnline:
Kris & Bruce Jenner’s Marriage Crisis:
He’s ‘Livid’ At How He’s Being Portrayed On ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’
With his marriage already crumbling and having resorted to moving out of the family home, Bruce Jenner didn’t need this — tension with his wife Kris over how he’s being portrayed on E!’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
RadarOnline.com has learned the family’s reality show has become a major strain on the pair’s 21-year marriage after Bruce, 63, accused Kris, 57, of making him look like a bad father, a source revealed.
Here’s how it all went down: A key storyline of season eight has been the former Olympic gold medalist’s relationship with sons, Brandon and Brody, and ex-wife, Linda Thompson.
While Brody’s relationship with his father has been strained for years, it was revealed on that reality show that he didn’t call his sons on their birthdays when they were children. The ex-The Hills star doesn’t even refer Bruce as dad, instead calling him by his first name!
That portrayal of Bruce as a shoddy parent “really has upset him,” according to our source. “Sure, there were gaps in time when Brody and Brandon were growing up and Bruce wasn’t around, but that was mainly because Kris would give him a hard time if he spent time with them.
“Kris demanded that Bruce’s attention was given to their two daughters, Kendall and Kylie. None of that — of course — was discussed on the show because it would have made Kris look bad.”
Now, Bruce blames Kris for pushing the storyline behind-the-scenes.
“He thought this season was going to show the two families coming together and not all of this negativity about events that happened decades ago,” the insider added.
“Kris is an executive producer on the show and has the final approval about what viewers see. Bruce is ticked off his relationships with his sons is being used to make him look bad. He’s livid. He is an amazing father to Kendall and Kylie and is around for them much more than Kris.”
It’s the latest setback to the couple’s once fairytale romance: As Radar previously reported, Kris has refused Bruce’s plea that the embattled couple go to marriage counseling.
Bruce, our source said, “wanted to go to marriage counseling with Kris several months ago. The marriage has been in trouble for a very long time and had only continued to go downhill. Bruce and Kris have become more like roommates and there is just no romance in the relationship.”
But mother-of-six Kris refused because she “didn’t think anything was wrong and was happy with the status quo.”
“She felt that it would just be a waste of time,” added the source. “This was one of the main reasons why Bruce got his own rental house in Malibu. If she didn’t want to work at the relationship, why should Bruce?”
You didn’t think the split was going to be Kris’ fault, did you? Never! Bruce will be made out to be the villain in this story.
Congratulations to everyone who got this one right! Yes, we still have to install those old comments.
We have updates for you on both the “Control” and the “Fallout” storylines!
The original blind item was published a year ago, and we are now definitely seeing the implementation of these two storylines.
The “Control” storyline will be getting more play in the press soon. After all, the family is going to have to come up with some excuse as to why Kim and Kanye aren’t getting along. Of course, it’s going to be all Kanye’s fault!
From Radar Online:
Kanye Is In Kontrol!
Kim Kardashian’s Life ‘Dictated By’ Baby Daddy West
Kim Kardashian has been deep in hiding since giving birth to her daughter North West but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that people around her feel like that’s because she is being controlled by Kanye West.
The 32-year-old new mom is reveling in the joy of motherhood with her baby daddy, but a source close to Kim says Kanye is in charge now.
“Kanye wants to make sure that every single aspect of Kim’s life is now handled the way he wants it to be,” the source said.
“He is controlling everything from her wardrobe to business choices and it’s definitely a change for Kim, who has always relied on her mother to take care of her. A lot of what Kim does now is dictated by Kanye.”
Kim and Kanye have been living in Kris Jenner’s house since the birth of their daughter but as Kim is adjusting to her new role as “mommy” she is struggling with managing the rest of her life.
With the NY Post report that Kim has taken a hiatus from her long-time publicist, the source said this isn’t a surprise.
“This is just another way Kanye is asserting his control over Kim and trying to make sure she follows his lead in everything instead of what her own mother has always done, which is completely expose every aspect of her life to the public for money.
Now, on to the “Fallout” storyline.
Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner just announced that they are separating. We’d call that a “Fallout”, wouldn’t you?
BTW, although using the Khloe and Lamar breakup would have been much more dramatic, it was rejected as a storyline. Kris is always talking about the family brand… and she does not want drugs to be associated with the brand at all. So, they will brush over the whole Lamar drug issue, and force people to focus on Kris and Bruce’s separation instead.
Thus, exactly as we told you a year ago, Kris and Bruce will be the subjects of the “Fallout” storyline, with Bruce being painted as the bad guy. And, again, just as we told you, the rest of the cast will be divided into two teams who will each support one side.
Bruce and Kris Jenner Separate
After 22 years of marriage, Kris and Bruce Jenner announced they have separated.
“We are living separately and we are much happier this way,” the pair tell E! News in a joint statement.
“But we will always have much love and respect for each other. Even though we are separated, we will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our number one priority.”
The couple has faced numerous split rumors. A year ago, a source told PEOPLE, “This same basic story has been on covers of mags for the last year and none … is true.”
Their breakup is the latest marital problem in the famous family.
Kris’s daughter Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom have been struggling with their marriage. And daughter Kim Kardashian recently finalized her divorce from Kris Humphries.
And, just like we told you, the separation will become a major plot line of the upcoming season. From TMZ:
Kris and Bruce Jenner may have split, but hey, business is business — we’ve learned not only will they continue shooting “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” the separation will become a major plot line of season 9.
We also have some notes for you about the timing of all this.
Star Magazine says that the pair actually split at the end of last year::
It was just this week that Kris and Bruce Jenner publicly announced their separation, but Star readers have known about the split for nearly a year! In early December 2012, Star broke the news that the 63-year-old Olympian had moved out and that the former couple was leading separate lives.
“We are much happier this way,” Kris revealed, also adding that she, Bruce and the rest of their family have been keeping the split a secret for a year.
However, according to other sources, Bruce and Kris have “admitted” that they separated in June. That was five months ago. Why did they keep insisting that their marriage was fine? Why didn’t they announce it in June? Simple: Because there was no ratings boost to be gained from it!
Instead, the announcement was held until the new season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians aired… and then only after it was determined that ratings for this season were not very good.
So, we told you last September that this was going to happen. Star Magazine says that they separated last December. Other sources say they separated in June.
Believe who you want to believe about the reasons for the split and the timing of the announcement. Just know that, with this family, you can’t believe anything they tell you. Events are create, manipulated, and spun for the sake of publicity, ratings, and money.
