How Kris and Bruce Jenner's Separation Will Affect 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians'
Despite the fact Kris and Bruce Jenner have officially separated, the show must — and will — go on for reality TV's first family. Come on… did you really have any doubt?
Sources confirm to Yahoo TV that both Kris and Bruce will continue filming E!'s "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," despite the fact they are no longer together.
"Kris and Bruce have been filming over the past couple of weeks, even though they were already separated," one production source tells us. "It will be addressed."
Signs that Kris, 57, and Bruce, 63, were headed to splitsville have been quite prevalent during the current season of the show. For one, Bruce has been living in Malibu, California, while Kris resides in their former shared home in Hidden Hills.
A second source close to the family reveals there are two main reasons Bruce will be part of the show: daughters Kendall, 17, and Kylie, 16.
"Just because Bruce is no longer with Kris doesn't mean he won't be involved in all of the kids' lives," a show insider tells Yahoo TV. "But since Kendall and Kylie are still young and will be featured [on the show] a lot, he wants to be there for them."
Sources also tell us that Bruce will be in attendance to film "big family events" as well.

When the cameras aren't rolling, Bruce is spending time with sons Brandon and Brody. As for how much they will be featured on the show, sources tell us it's "likely" you will still see them.
Bruce, Kendall, and Kylie were all spotted filming scenes for "KUWTK" on Tuesday after news hit of the separation. The Olympic champion was still wearing his wedding ring.
In April 2012, E! Entertainment announced "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" was renewed for three more years. The show is in its eighth season, and is currently still in production.
The bottom line here?
"[Filming] is business as usual," our on-set production source says.
Yeah… business as usual, but with a giant ratings boost on the horizon. Leave it to the Kardashians.
"Keeping Up With the Kardashians" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on E!.
