Separated: Bruce and Kris Jenner, after 22 years of marriage during which they leveraged a spot on the L.A. social B-list and a brood of photo-ready kids into an era-defining reality TV empire, anchored by “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” No word if they’re formally divorcing, but “we are living separately and. . . much happier this way,” they announced late Tuesday through E!, their network.

The former Olympic decathlete, 63, and the socialite ex-wife of late O.J. defender Robert Kardashian, 57, have two teens together, who have joined their many half-siblings on TV. Jenner-Kardashian unions have had a rocky time lately, after Kim’s quickie divorce from the NBA’s Kris Humphries and Khloe’s apparent marriage troubles with Lamar Odom (or so the tabloids keep telling us) — but all the more to discuss in Season Nine.
