Bruce Jenner IS transitioning to become a woman, a source “confirms”

The world can’t just leave Bruce Jenner alone. Is he transitioning to be a woman? Is he “on a journey”? Ever since he started growing his hair a bit longer, the world has been going nuts speculating about what’s going on in his private life, and now it seems like People has got the REAL SCOOP (yes, that’s sarcasm).

“Bruce is transitioning to a woman,” says a source close to the family. “He is finally happy and his family is accepting of what he’s doing. He’s in such a great space. That’s why it’s the perfect time to do something like this.”

“He’s being very smart about and also respectful about his transition,” the insider says. “Instead of completely shocking everyone, his changes have been subtle, and his family has had the chance to slowly get used to his new looks and life.”

And his family, including children Cassandra, 34, Burt, 36 (with ex wife Chrystie Crownover ) and sons Brandon, 33 and Brody, 31 (with ex wife Linda Thompson), as well as daughters Kendall, 19 and Kylie, 17 (with Kris Jenner) are adjusting to the new Bruce. “The [kids'] concern seems to be Bruce’s happiness, and he acts very pleased with his new life,” says the insider.

Admits the family source: “It is an intense thing. Of course not everyone is 100 percent on board. Different people have different reactions. But everybody loves him.”

“The family is really giving this space and time to Bruce. This is his story and they want him to tell the world the way he wants,” the source close to the family says. “They really want to empower him to tell his story so that hopefully he can help other people too. That’s the goal.”

Now it appears that Jenner, finally happy in his own skin, will soon be ready to live life out in the open. “He has come out to those closest to him,” says the family source. “He’s so happy and excited. He gets to lay down a huge bag of bricks. He’s been through a dark period and is coming out on the other side.”

So basically, People feels okay paying an intern to make up quotes from a “source” to make another headline about Bruce’s gender identity? That, or the Kardashian/Jenner clans know some really shitty people who are quite happy to give over private details about their lives in exchange for a hundred bucks… which seems just as likely, now that I think about it.

Kim Kardashian on Bruce Jenner transgender rumors: “He’s on a journey”

kim kardashian

Yup, it’s ANOTHER Kim Kardashian story. Two in a day! Lucky you!

If there’s one thing the Kardashians know how to do, it’s to take someone else’s press and turn the attention back on themselves. Kim Kardashian is probably the best of this, having learned from mom Kris Jenner, and indeed Kim stopped by Entertainment Tonight to speak out on all the rumours surrounding her step-father Bruce Jenner and his alleged desire to become a woman.

“I will say that I think Bruce should tell his story his way … I think everyone goes through things in life and I think that story and what Bruce is going through, I think he’ll share whenever the time is right.”

So, basically Kim has decided to act as Bruce’s personal spokesperson to let the world know that yeah, there’s shit going on with him and he’ll tell you when he’s ready. Only, hang on, she’s going to tell you first and squeeze some attention out of the whole situation for herself. Who wouldn’t? (Answer: Any decent human being.)

I’m truly not sure why anyone thought this was in good taste – even Kris has remained quiet, and that’s saying something.

Russell Brand wants you to stop bullying Bruce Jenner

trews

In case you forgot, Russell Brand has his own daily YouTube show called The Trews, where he gives his views on what’s happening in, well, the news. A lot of his commentary in this series tends to be about what’s big in pop culture, and one of his recent shows is about the whole Bruce Jenner transgender debacle. His views? Everyone needs to shut the hell up and treat the man like a human being.

“Transphobia seems to be the most recent and encouraged form of prejudice, now that racism and homophobia are not tolerated. It’s such a celebration of the worst aspects of human values. What this does is it sanctions people being judgmental and cruel toward transgender folks.”

Can’t argue with that. Say what you want about Russell Brand, but he’s whip smart and really eloquent and generally gets shit like this spot on. Here’s the full episode, if you’re interested in watching:

Yeah, so how about we stop worrying about what makes the most ludicrous headline to the point that we’re literally Photoshopping makeup on a man and trying to sell it as real/humiliate him for it and actually start treating people with a modicum of respect? Sounds like a grand idea…

Kris Jenner is having a meltdown over that Bruce Jenner InTouch cover

bruce jenner intouch

Last week, InTouch Weekly stooped to new lows (I know, you didn’t think it was possible) by superimposing Bruce Jenner‘s face onto Stephanie Beacham‘s body and adding a full face of makeup. This was an attempt to “out” him as transgender, which is not a new story by any means, but a fucked up one nonetheless given that a) Bruce has never spoken about this publicly and therefore, even if there is any truth to it, is a hot ass mess and b) There’s never been any proof that there is any truth to this and c) it’s InTouch and who even reads that bullshit?

In any case, because the world revolves around his ex-wife Kris Jenner, she is apparently so distraught over this cover that she’s having an absolute meltdown, acting out with her classic histrionics to the point that Khloe Kardashian felt the need to send her mom a huge bouquet of flowers, promising to always be there for her.

Now, sources close to the Jenner and Kardashian families tell Confidenti@l they sure hope In Touch got a good laugh out of the Photoshopped mockup, because it’ll cost them access to team Kardashian in the new year.

“Kris (Jenner) has cut off contact with In Touch, Life & Style and all Bauer publications,” says a source close to the reality TV royals.

“They won’t get any ‘real’ quotes from the family, and will be banned from Kardashian-Jenner red carpets, events, premieres and fashion events,” we’re told.

“Kris is a powerhouse — you’d better believe she’ll stick to it,” we’re assured.

Kris was so upset that Khloe Kardashian sent flowers to her momager, trying to lift her spirits about the way her ex-husband is treated in the press. She included a card reading, “Everything will fall into place, and until then we’ll have Belvedere (vodka). I love you mom.”

While a rep for Bauer declined to comment, a publishing insider says VIPs at the tabloid feel like their marriage to the Kardashians ended a long time ago.

“In Touch doesn’t care if the Kardashians don’t speak to them,” says our insider. “They felt betrayed anyway, that the family used them to get famous, then dumped them.”

Yeah, whoop-dee-doo that Kris won’t give quotes to InTouch Weekly. I mean, heaven forbid! Whatever will they do now? I dunno, maybe make the quotes up like they’ve always done? Photoshop pics just like they did on this very cover???

I think it shows the depths of Kris’ sheer delusional selfishness, however – and keep in mind, this isn’t surprising – that she’s more concerned about how this cover affects HER rather than how, you know, Bruce must feel to have something that’s very personal be speculated about so publicly AND to be made fun of to the point that a national trash magazine is Photoshopping makeup on his face. Good God.

Bruce Jenner wants his own reality show… without Kris Jenner

bruce jenner sons

Bruce Jenner played a pretty big part on Keeping Up with the Kardashians for many years, but obviously now that he and Kris Jenner are divorcing, that’s all changed… sorta. He’s still under contract on that show, despite his recently reduced role (and his desire to get the hell out). Bruce is ready to get out there on his own… without the Kardashian clan having a single thing to do with it.

From TMZ:

Sources close to the situation tell us most of the offers involve shooting, ironically, Kardashian-style — following Bruce and his 3 sons while they race cars, travel, and just generally bro out. Think “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” … with a bit more testosterone.

No deal’s been signed yet. As we’ve previously reported, Bruce has soured on shooting reality TV. However, we’re told he’d be game for a new opportunity — where Kris Jenner is NOT the executive producer … like she is on ‘KUWTK.’

Right on! I mean, I think the Kardashians are boring enough on their own, so the idea of watching a show about Bruce Jenner’s family literally puts me to sleep and I doubt it’s going to take off, anyway. Unless, of course, the show revolves around his glorious hair. That, I’d probably watch.

Kris Jenner officially files for divorce from Bruce

kris jenner bruce jenner

Kris Jenner and Bruce split a little over a year ago, but there were rumours of a reconciliation somewhere in there. However, it looks like that’s not going to happen, since Kris officially filed for divorce from Bruce this week. I am unsure how to feel for Bruce – relieved because he got away from that She-Devil, or bad for how awfully he was treated throughout their marriage. I suppose really, I don’t feel either because I don’t know them and don’t really care. C’est la vie!

From TMZ:

Kris filed pro per — meaning NO LAWYER. Our sources say this was all orchestrated. Bruce Jenner‘s response is about to be filed at the L.A. County Courthouse.

She cites the standard “irreconcilable differences” as grounds for the divorce.

Everything has been worked out with their business managers … our sources say. There was NO PRENUP and they have already agreed to a property split.

Neither party will get spousal support. As for Kylie — who is 17 — they have joint custody.

Bruce, Kris and their managers worked out the deal over the last few months.

Well, that’s that, I suppose. Now Kris can desperately cling to her youth in peace and maybe even change her last name back to Kardashian, just like she’s wanted to do for the past 10 years, in an attempt to siphon off her kids’ fame. Bruce can grow old in peace and perhaps save what’s left of his hair after having lived with Kris for nearly three decades. Everyone’s happy! (The split is apparently “extremely amicable” – I bet!)
