“She’s always done… Their culture destroying ‘reality’ show was canceled… Alas, she needs attention. Her 15 minutes of shame is gone. So she’s gotta try something,” commented another.

“The show has ended, she no longer needs him for the drama,” a third opined.

Another person was convinced that Mama Kris put this news out, tweeting: “Headlines. All about headlines. When you get no press… you have to [create] headlines… Kris is totally behind it. Gotta keep the brand alive.”

Well, you know what they say: The devil works hard, but Kris Jenner works harder.
