Is Kris Jenner really this desperate for publicity and ratings? Rumor has it that she's pushing her much younger man Corey Gamble to get engaged in an attempt to revive the floundering Keeping Up With the Kardashians, reports Radar Online.

Several photos have circulated of Gamble, 33, wearing what looks like a wedding band on his left ring finger. Jenner, 60, has apparently been making him sport the ring and plans on marrying him on the finale of KUWTK next season in the hopes of boosting the reality show's sagging ratings, a source told Radar.

"Kris forced Corey into wearing the ring because she wanted to see how the public would react to them being married before the actual scripted proposal takes place," the insider dished. "She wants to make him her husband, but first needs to know how it will affect her brand and the brand of her empire."

Oh, brother. And as for how uncomfortable their nearly 30-year age difference makes people? Well, that's been on Kris' mind too, apparently.

"Since Corey is so much younger than her, Kris just wants to be sure that the public does not think that her relationship is seen as 'sugar momma takes on young stud,'" Radar's insider said.

The pair have been romantically linked for about a year, following Kris' divorce from ex-husband Bruce Jenner (now Caitlyn Jenner after a sex change operation) after 24 years of marriage.
