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.
