UPDATE (October 18, 2013):
Turns out Kris Jenner likes her name just the way it is. She recently fired back at rumors she'll be reclaiming the Kardashian name.
ORIGINAL STORY (October 11, 2013):
Watch out world — there may just be another Kardashian on the way.
Kris Jenner may have only announced her separation from husband Bruce Jenner on Tuesday, but it looks like she’s intent on getting her old life back as soon as she can.
RadarOnline.com reports that among Kris’s first orders of business as a newly somewhat-single woman is to change her name — not to her maiden name, Houghton, but, strangely enough, to her other ex-husband’s name, to rightfully take her place as the head queen of the Kardashians.
A source claims, “Kris has seriously been thinking about changing her last name back to Kardashian.”
The insider adds, “Kris always considered [her ex-husband] Robert Kardashian to be the love of her life, and their family empire is built on the Kardashian name. It would be so much simpler if Kris just changed her name back.”
Kris similarly considered switching her name to the more heavily-branded Kardashian name on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but was convinced out of the decision by her children, who pointed out that it would be a pretty big slap in the face to Bruce.
“I think it is so disrespectful and so rude,” said surprising voice of reason, Kim.
While it remains to be seen if Kris will remain Mrs. Jenner, both she and Bruce continue to insist that their separation is not an indicator of a future divorce, because love just doesn't follow the same rules in Calabasas.
