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 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!)

Bruce Jenner is addicted to wearing Spanx

Bruce Jenner has been plagued with rumours that he’s in the process of transitioning into being a woman, and whether or not it’s true, it’s a shame that he can’t just work shit out in peace. The latest “story” claims that Bruce is obsessed with remaining super svelte – so obsessed that he is addicted to wearing Spanx to maintain his figure.

From OK Magazine (via RealityTVWorld):

“He started wearing them under his suits on the red carpet, and he loved the results so much that now he wears them all the time,” an insider told the publication, adding that Jenner is upset his estranged wife Kris Jenner recently shared his secret with the couple’s daughters Kendall and Kylie.

“The girls haven’t stopped laughing, and Bruce was furious that Kris revealed something so private, especially with all the cross-dressing rumors,” the source continued. “He insists the Spanx¨are just to hide his belly — not an excuse to wear women’s underwear.”

While it’s unclear whether Jenner has been using women’s or men’s Spanx, the reality star has been linked in the past to speculation that he wishes to have a more feminine look.

Listen, Spanx are the shit. They seriously make everyone look thinner, even if you’re already thin. For those of us that aren’t naturally stick figures, it just holds things in place a little better.  I ain’t mad at him for this. Do you, Bruce.
