Kris Jenner “Supports” Khloe Kardashian By Dishing To Gossip Magazines

Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds Honored On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Khloé Kardashian Odom recently filed for divorce from her soon-to-be ex husband Lamar Odom, after rumors of infidelity and drug use made their way around. Momager Kris Jenner was thrilled to speak publicly about the divorce, which seems fairly invasive, to me.

Jenner told People:

“What Khloe is going through is definitely challenging, I’m not going to lie. It’s also a very interesting time for her because it’s very cleansing. She’s also showed this side of her that I didn’t know she had. I always knew Khloé was strong, but I never dreamed that she had this kind of strength. It’s definitely life lessons that she will be able to apply and use later in her life,” she said. “She’s learned a lot from this situation. I still love Lamar and I love Khloé, and I hate, hate they’re going through this. But if it’s something that Khloé feels she needs to do, then I’m 150 percent behind her. We all lean on each other, we have to.”

Sure, that’s a lovely statement. But maybe a better way to let Khloé lean on her would be to respect her privacy.

Going through a divorce sounds like an unimaginably difficult situation, only to be made worse by going through a divorce publicly, with every single element of the breakdown, separation, and any legal proceeding picked apart by the public, desperate for information.

I’m torn here because obviously these people choose to live their lives completely publicly, so maybe this is fair game. Even bikini waxes happen on screen for these people, so I guess having one person speak about another’s private hell isn’t out of the question. But I also think that they should have the choice to hit a stop button when things get too personal. I have a real soft spot for Khloé, who talks about feeling like an outside or self conscious, and is also hilarious. Once I spat out a milkshake because she called Bruce Jenner “Hitler,” in the most perfect way. I just want her to be happy.

    the statement itself isn’t malicious, like you said, but I definitely think the timing of it is inappropriate–way too soon to be so public about her daughter’s fragile emotional state.

    I don’t watch their show. The little bit about them I know, I got mostly from watching The View. Khloe always seemed the most down to earth to me. So I feel for her that she’s going through this. Divorce always makes me sad, for whatever reason. I was sorry when Katie Holmes divorced Tom Cruise, and I’m sorry here. Even though neither have any bearing on my life. That being said… I think all these Kardashian/Jenner girls (and isn’t there a boy in there?) need to divorce their mama. She just doesn’t have, and from what I’ve seen, never has had, their best interest in mind. She always is out for herself, and whatever puts her name out there and gets herself the most attention.

    I think the part that gets me about it is that Khloe has made it clear that she is hurting from all the media coverage of it. Having her Momager feed that is just…sad. It’s really sad. I have a soft spot for her too. I dunno why.
