Caitlyn Jenner has been in the 2015 zeitgeist more than Madonna circa late ’80s, but today a piece of news is cropping up that’s been dogging Caitlyn since winter. Back in February of this year, when Cailtyn was Bruce Jenner, she was involved in a Malibu car crash that left one woman, Kim Howe, dead.
Shortly after the crash, Howe’s two adult stepchildren attempted to file a wrongful death lawsuit against Bruce claiming, “Bruce was ‘careless and negligent’ when he slammed into Howe’s Lexus on PCH…causing it to careen into oncoming traffic where it collided head on with a Hummer.” But TMZ is reporting today that the initial settlement shows the accident to be tragic, but not criminal.
What’s that sound I’m hearing? Oh! It’s the entire Kardashianempire’s heads simultaneously exploding. News broke today of MTV nearing the end of contracts to produce a new reality series with Amber Rose and Blac Chyna, sworn (social media) enemies of most of the Kardashian – and Jenner – women. I picture Kim, Khloe, and Kylie smearing war paint under their eyes at this very moment, armed only with selfie sticks.
Amber Rose skyrocketed to stardom for her high profile romances with rapper Wiz Khalifa and Kanye West. West notoriously dogged Rose after their relationship was over, spilling in a radio interview that “It’s very hard for a woman to want to be with someone that’s with Amber Rose… I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim.” Rose has also been very outspoken about Kylie Jenner’s questionable relationship with rapper Tyga, who he left his baby mama (and Rose’s friend) Blac Chyna for. Rose stated in a Feb. 2015 interview, “[Tyga] should be ashamed of himself. For sure. He has a beautiful woman and a baby and left that for a 16-year-old who just turned 17.” (Kylie is now 18.) Big sister Khloe got into it on social media with Rose after her statement.
VH1 has decided that we all need a little more Dr. Jenn Berman Mann in our lives. Clearly, VH1 is wrong, but I digress. Yesterday, the network announced a Couples Therapy with Dr. Jenn spin off, Family Therapy with Dr. Jenn.
Aww, little Bindi Irwin is all grown up. And she’s celebrating her latest good news as the first contestant to be announced in the upcoming 21st season of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars! Bindi joked in a retweet today from an interview with Good Morning America, “I’m more afraid of the judges than I am of Crocs!”
Daughter of the late Steve Irwin, best known as television’s Crocodile Hunter, Bindi is no stranger to the spotlight. After Steve tragically died from a stingray barb in 2006, Bindi (then only 8-years old) delivered a heartfelt public eulogy to a TV audience of more than 300 million viewers, going on in later years to star in My Daddy the Crocodile Hunter as well as various fitness and music DVDs.
Kim’s lawyer, Sara Caplan, is now vaguely reporting that Kim is back in a “program,” which she proved to a judge via a retainer letter so that Kim’s original Aug 20 court date (regarding the Target arrest) could be pushed back. The judge agreed to change the court date to Sept 11. Outside of court, Caplan did not comment on where Kim is locked up or for how long, saying only, “She’s doing well.”
Well, here’s a blast from the past! Carmen Electra is finding her way back into the spotlight (at least a very thin, flimsy sliver of it) with her new gig as host for WE TV’s new reality series: Ex Isle. The series pledges to help couples break it off with their exes for good, supplying them with plenty of fresh meat alternative choices in future dating partners.
Production is rolling on the 10-episode series, which will take place in the Casa de Campo Resort in the Dominican Republic. Five couples who are already broken up will be guided by an on-site psychiatrist, Dr. Ish Major, to “break free from the past” in order to move on with new relationships. And just to move things along at a proper reality TV pace, Ex Isle will ship in 10 ready-to-mingle-singles for the recently fractured couples to snatch up. This, of course, is all in the name of “building emotionally healthy and productive relationships,” says WE TV’s president Marc Juris.
“One day the people that didn’t believe in you will tell everyone how they met you,” wrote Monty. “That quote is in honor of @kimrichards11 all I will say at this time besides being best friends, and personally a person who has a great heart is thankful to all her fans and friends for believing in her.”
