In the wake of a sensational divorce announcement between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, we sat down with Kim's mother, Kris Jenner, to find out how she handled her own public and "messy" separation from Robert Kardashian more than 20 years ago.  

What advice do you have for divorcees to pick themselves up again?

You're never going to be the first person to get a divorce and you're never going to be the last.  So it's really about how you handle a situation.  What I learned from it was really not to judge anyone else.  Another thing I learned from it was how amazing it can be to have a relationship with your ex-husband, which makes it much nicer for your children. So if anyone's out there struggling with one of those messy divorces where the kids kind of get in the middle, it only hurts the kids.

How did you start dating again?

When I was set up on a blind date with Bruce Jenner, we met and married within five months.  I was a single mom with four kids, and who would marry a girl with four kids? I give Bruce a lot of credit, but it also gives hope to women out there who want a second chance and already have a family to find love again.
