Bruce Jenner may no longer have to keep up with the Kardashians after splitting with his wife, Kris, but he’s “doing great” and easing into the single life.
That’s the verdict of his son Brody Jenner, who tells Confidenti@l his dad’s main concern is his ever-increasing mane.
“He seems like he is doing great,” Brody told us. “Seems like better than ever … growing his hair out, and he has a ponytail.”
The Jenners announced their split in early October, after 22 years of marriage, but are yet to file for divorce.
“At the end of the day, once you get to that age, the most important thing is, are you there for the kids?” Brody said.
The 30-year-old model and TV personality revealed that Bruce may be growing his locks to infuriate Kris and the Kardashian clan.
“He does a lot of these things in spite of the girls,” Brody said.
“One of the girls will make fun of his hair or say something about his hair, and he’ll grow it longer just because they’re saying that.
“He’s one of those types. Even though maybe he’ll want to cut it, he won’t just because when he goes over to the house, they’ll say, ‘Oh my God, what’s going on with your hair?’ ”
Bruce, 67, hero of the 1976 Summer Olympics, has taken up full-time residence in Malibu while Kris remains in the family’s Hidden Hills, Calif., estate.
Fans of “KUWTK” have seen Brody and stepmom Kris almost come to blows on the hit show.
“The tension was real as far as growing up not knowing her intentions, who she is, there was obviously just drama between the family and parents,” he told us.
But Brody said that after spending time on the show, he and the momager are on good terms.
“Kris and I have had some very deep, long conversations, and we actually really got to know each other, and so we’re all good now,” he said.
The Jenners married in April 1991, one month after Kris’ divorced her first husband, celebrity lawyer Robert Kardashian, with whom she had four children — reality stars Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob . Bruce and Kris have two daughters together, Kendall and Kylie . Bruce has four children from two previous marriages, including Brody, who found fame on “Laguna Beach” and “The Hills” and recently broke up with model Bryana Holly .
BARBRA WINS AN UPHILL BATTLE
Barbra Streisand’s diva ways extend from her performances to the driveways of her rich and famous friends. When the singer was ready to leave a recent Hollywood Hills house party with husband James Brolin, the actor told her to walk up the hill with him to retrieve their car at the valet stand.
“Streisand was complaining and carrying on and told Brolin in a very whiny, shrill voice, ‘I’m not walking up a hill in my heels. Get the car. I can’t walk like this. I’ll ruin my heels,’ ” says our spywitness. Brolin became frustrated and asked Babs, “What do I have to do — carry you?” We’re told Streisand looked perturbed and said, “Get the car. I’m not walking up a hill!”
Some party staffers were driving up the hill in a golf cart and offered Babs a ride, but she refused, instead standing off to the side and waiting until Brolin caved and drove the car to pick up his demanding wife.

The star of “The Wrestler” loves to walk around Caffe Roma in Beverly Hills wearing only his boxer shorts and a sport jacket. “He acts like it’s completely commonplace to do it, and then says hello and chats with younger, pretty blond women patrons who are not the least bit interested in him,” says our insider.

Jon Lovitz, sushi fan.
SUSHI IN THE RAW
Actor Jon Lovitz had a bizarre request for event planners helping him with a recent event. Lovitz told them he wanted to have a naked woman with sushi all over her body on display. They hired someone for the job, but we’re told Lovitz complained, “The woman is so ugly. I wanted you to get a beautiful woman, not some horrible-looking one! I don’t want to eat sushi off her — she’s too ugly!”
A TORRID TORI AND DEAN
While Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott try and move on from reports that McDermott had a one-night stand with a woman in Canada, we hear Spelling recently had an embarrassing moment while moving boxes around her home. “Her assistant found naked photographs of Tori and Dean in one of the boxes. The photos showed them involved in very explicit sexual situations,” our source tells us. However, we’re told the “Beverly Hills, 90210” actress laughed it off, admitting she’s a major hoarder and has trouble throwing anything out, even if it’s junk. Which could explain her tolerance for her cheating husband.
