Kris Jenner had no idea Bruce wanted to transition

bruce jenner kris jenner

Bruce Jenner will apparently sit down later this year to talk about his transition to womanhood, but in the meantime, the press is having a field day talking about what it all means. How long has Bruce known he’s transgender? Why is he transitioning now? And perhaps most importantly, WHAT DO THE KARDASHIANS THINK???

For one thing, apparently Bruce’s ex-wife Kris Jenner had no idea that any of this was happening and feels blindsided by this – because, of course, Bruce coming to terms with his own gender identity is all about Kris, not about himself. Oh, and she plans to make as much money as she can off the whole thing.

Family sources tell TMZ … Kris heard all the buzz about Bruce but he never told her and she never asked. It sounds incredible, but we’re told there was “a serious lack of communication in the marriage.”

When they had their family sit down — which of course was recorded — we’re told Kris squarely challenged Bruce, disbelieving he truly wanted a sex change. Things got heated because Bruce insisted he was both comfortable and determined.

We’re also told Kris felt this was a shining example of the fundamental problem they had in their marriage — they hardly communicated with each other, and Bruce was especially shut down.

But Kris was not singled out. Bruce kept virtually everyone in his life — including his close male friends with whom he spent lots of time — in the dark.

Well, that’s certainly not a shocker. Even on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kris and Bruce barely paid attention to each other. Kris had her head so far up her own ass (and when it wasn’t, it was up Kim’s) that she barely had the time of day for Bruce, and Bruce just sorta seemed to be there, getting by.

In the meantime, Bruce’s mom Esther, who is 88, recently opened up to The AP about Bruce, and said she’s more proud of him than she’s ever been for being brave through this transition:

“It was brief and I said I was proud of him and that I’ll always love him. I never thought I could be more proud of Bruce when he reached his goal in 1976, but I’m more proud of him now. It takes a lot of courage to do what he’s doing.”

“He said, ‘Mom, I’m still the same person.’ He said, ‘I’m still going to race cars, I’m still going to fly airplanes and I’m going to get my helicopter license.’”

“The family is close and very supportive of Bruce and we’re supportive of each other. He said, ‘I want to be honest about my identity and I know this is coming out in the press.’ He started by saying, ‘We need to have a long, serious talk.’ I am at peace with what he is and what he’s doing.”

Well, at least his mom sounds normal and lovely. Good for Bruce – coming out as transgender is difficult enough on his own, and doing it later in life can’t be any easier. Hopefully he is surrounded with people who will love and support him through this. And that does NOT include Kris Jenner.

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are married!

Last week, news broke that Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were planning to marry this upcoming weekend on Johnny’s private island in the Bahamas, Little Hall’s Pond Cay. That big celebration, where all the guests will have to sleep on his giant yacht off the island’s coast, is apparently still happening, but the actual wedding is DUNZO. They’re married! They did it!

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard made it legal at their home in Los Angeles on Tuesday, a source tells PEOPLE.

Well, that’s short and simple. I’ve always been somewhat perplexed by this pairing, I have to admit. I actually didn’t think they’d get this far – I sorta figured that the relationship would fizzle out before they ever made it down the aisle, but here we are. Who knows? Maybe this really is meant to be!

Do you think they’ll last?

Beyonce and Jay-Z are moving to LA!

Watch out, west coast – Jay-Z and Beyonce are coming your way! I guess they got tired of New York, because they’re looking for properties in Los Angeles and have already enrolled Blue Ivy in an elite private school. I feel like this move makes sense, especially with their new ~vegan lifestyle~ – so prepare for another set of celebs to move into the area!

From TMZ:

We’ve learned … Beyonce and Jay Z are currently living in a hotel in Beverly Hills and actively looking for an estate to buy on the westside of L.A., which includes Beverly Hills, Holmby Hills and Bel-Air. We’re told they have already discreetly looked at a number of homes, but so far none fit the bill.

We’ve also learned the famous couple enrolled their 3-year-old into a toddler program at an elite private school — we know which one but we’re not naming it. But we will tell you, the tuition is $15,080 a year.

We’re told Blue Ivy was admitted halfway through the school year, which is unusual. The school generally only accepts students at the beginning of the school year.

As for why they’re moving, sources connected with the couple tell us they want “a change in lifestyle.” You’ll re recall, Bey and Jay spent the summer in a $200K a month rental near Bev Hills.

We do not know but assume they will keep their New York digs.

I wouldn’t want to live in LA (I’m an east coast girl at heart), but if I was mega rich and could have properties on both coasts, I would definitely find a place in Malibu or in the Canyons cos they’re so nice. Ah, dreams.

Kylie Jenner looks different as a blonde

Everyone else in her family has posed nearly naked for LOVE Magazine, so Kylie Jenner had to get in on the action (though from this “sneak peak” shot, she’s surprisingly – and thankfully – clothed). Kylie posted the photo on her Instagram page, as you do, sporting a blonde wig and her signature overdone makeup, as per. (No shade – she doesn’t need all that, but if that’s what she likes, sure, why not?)

I’m not quite sure what to make of the blonde. And I don’t think I understand what the point of this feature is. What does Kylie Jenner do, exactly? I know we could ask the same for most people in the Kardashian family, but… I dunno, this one is extra weird.

I guess it’s good that her photo shoot is mostly clothed – especially considering the fact that she’s only 17.

Where do you think Kylie Jenner will be in 5 years?

Bobbi Kristina was never married to Nick Gordon

Bobbi Kristina is currently in hospital fighting for her life, and her very serious condition is causing some discussion about just what will happen in case she doesn’t pull through. A lot of this discussion is surrounding Bobbi Kristina’s husband (and childhood surrogate brother) Nick Gordon, who everyone seems up in arms about since if Bobbi doesn’t survive this awful event, he theoretically stands to inherit a whole lot of money.

Turns out, that’s never going to happen, particularly because, uh… they were never actually married.

Despite the fact she announced to the world that she had wed Gordon last January and has since referred to him as her “incredible husband,” “Bobbi Kristina is not and has never been married to Nick Gordon,” Bobby Brown’s lawyer says in a statement to PEOPLE.

Furthermore, from TMZ:

We’re told by Houston family sources … there are no legal documents that would allow Gordon to get any of the Whitney Houston fortune Bobbi Kristina inherited — if she passes.

Well, I guess that’s a relief? I’m not quite sure why they lied and said they were married or why they didn’t actually go ahead with any kind of ceremony, but I suppose one doesn’t need a piece of paper to document commitment. It’s all just very strange…

In other Bobbi Kristina news, it seems she’s been moved to a new hospital for further neurological treatment:

Family sources tell TMZ … Bobbi Kristina is at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, GA which is considered one of the top facilities for neurological problems. She’s was at North Fulton Hospital in Roswell, GA near her home where she was found face down in a bathtub Saturday.

It looks like the move could intensify a brewing feud between the families of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown. We’re told the families are bickering over who gets access to the part of the hospital where Bobbi Kristina is receiving treatment.

As one source put it, “The Houston family is sick of the Brown family acting up, as they always do.”

This is just such a tragic situation all around, as I’ve said a hundred times already. I really hope Bobbi fights and gets through this.

Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney release ‘Four Five Seconds’ video

five four seconds

Honestly, the new Rihanna/Paul McCartney/Kanye West track ‘Four Five Seconds’ is one of the most perplexing single releases in recent history. It’s an absolutely horrendous song with a collaboration that just does NOT fit (and that probably only happened because they thought it would be ~unexpected~ and ~legendary~), no matter what way you slice it. I get that RiRi needs to get back out there, though I don’t think this is the way to do it. I’m not really shocked at Kanye, though – he’s always trying to one-up everyone with some crazy shit (which REALLY worked with 808s and Heartbreaks, but NOT here).

Here’s the video, which was released yesterday:

Ugh, this is AWFUL. What do you think?

Katy Perry throws shade at Taylor Swift in ‘Elle’

katy perry elle

Oh God, I’m so, so bored of the Katy Perry and Taylor Swift feud. It’s the most boring, vanilla celebrity bullshit in the entire world. They used to be really close, then Katy stole Taylor’s dancers for some tour or something (but didn’t really steal them because they apparently worked for Katy first) and now it’s some whole thing that is seriously putting me to sleep just to type. And that’s coming from someone who likes them both.

Katy was rumoured to be planning a big “Gotcha!” at Taylor’s expense during the Super Bowl, which never happened (though apparently the dancing sharks had something to do with it?). Instead, Katy shot off at the mouth to Elle magazine, where she cast not-so-subtle shade in Taylor’s direction for being seen as America’s sweetheart.

“You’ve got to name someone the villain, someone the princess, someone the mom-, the dad-type—you know there always have to be characters. As pop figures, we’re all characters. And the media uses that. Who is the sweetheart, who is the villain? You know. Taylor‘s the sweetheart. Kanye‘s the villain. That’s the narrative.”

I mean, why even bring Kanye into this? Trying to position yourself as super progressive and cool, Katy? To me, this just reads like someone who’s a bit butt hurt about Taylor’s success (despite her own), but whatever.

kermit

I’m over this nonsense, and both of them need to be, as well, because Taylor is petty, too. Grow up, ladies.
