The Hills Stars Brody Jenner & Kaitlyn Carter Split; Never Legally Married

During the original run of The Hills, Brody Jenner was known for his way with women. On The Hills: New Beginnings, Brody is a newlywed who has decided to showcase his marriage on reality TV. Apparently, he has learned nothing from almost every reality TV couple who has split after their prexisting problems were exacerbated by filming a reality show.

Brody and his wife Kaitlynn Carter have been passive agressively arguing since the first episode of the season. Their time on the show opened with Brody waking up after he slept in his car following one of his DJ gigs. That’s far from a sign of marital bliss. Kaitlynn has been pushing (a very disinterested) Brody to have a baby all season long while wearing three too many hair clips. Overall, these two have been uncomfortable to watch. And now they’ve announced their split, shocking pretty much no one who has watched this show.

On August 2, a representative for the couple told Us Weekly, “Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter have decided to amicably separate.” Very smart of them announcing the news at the tail end of the business day on the final day of the work week with the hopes to diminish news coverage. Nevertheless, here we are talking about it. A couple days later and it is still news, especially since the show is on tonight.

Their rep also said, “They love and respect one another, and know that this is the best decision for their relationship moving forward.” The Hills: New Beginnings just got renewed for a second season. Does this mean Kaitlynn is out? Or will she have to endure running into Brody at clubs while he is with other women?

In the trailer for the season, it already seemed like Brody may have been with other women anyway, claiming that he and Kaitlynn had an “open marriage,” which she denied.

Us Weekly claimed that Kaitlynn already moved out of their house and that they’ve both stopped wearing wedding rings, which Brody does at his DJ gigs anyway.

Well, at least the couple doesn’t have to go through a divorce. It turns out that they WERE NOT LEGALLY MARRIED. What is up with that? Is this just the new stunt reality stars pull to have wedding-related publicity while avoiding the legal ramifications of divorce?

Ironically, Brody previously told Us Weekly that filming the show made them “closer if anything.” So much for that. Now, I’m sure Brody is getting “closer if anything” to the new generation of The Hills female fans.
