Women earn only 78 cents on the dollar compared to men, but Caitlyn Jenner is bucking that trend (along with many others). She will reportedly be paid a whopping $6.4 million dollars for her new “docuseries” (reality show) I Am Cait, which covers Caitlyn’s steps in transitioning from a man to a woman and will air on the E! network in late July.
“It’s the biggest paycheck ever given by E! for a solo reality show, and Caitlyn’s agent was relentless in getting her the huge payday,” an insider tells Radar Online. Sources claim that Caitlyn’s agent indeed played hardball, even shopping around other networks when E! didn’t initially cough up the money. “At one point, talks … had broken down because nobody wanted to pay her more than $2 million. Caitlyn’s agent then began informal talks with other networks, and E! quickly came back to the table, ready to pay $6 million,” says the source.
This week Bruce Jenner officially announced her new identity as Caitlyn Jenner with an gorgeous Vanity Fair cover. This moving and amazing milestone opens up a lot of questions because of Caitlyn’s amazing life of accomplishments as Bruce! Most notably the Gold Medal Caitlyn, then Bruce, won for the decathlon in the infamous 1976 Olympics.
While some bigoted groups are campaigning to have Caitlyn stripped of her medal, the US Olympic Committee and Hall Of Fame is thankfully taking the opposite response! Caitlyn was inducted back in 1986, but her former name “Bruce” is attached to the honor.
I never thought I’d see the day when Kim Kardashian was overshadowed in the media by anyone else, but Caitlyn Jenner has managed just that. Kim’s second pregnancy news was left in the dust after Vanity Fair dropped the cover photo for their July issue, which featured Caitlyn’s debut and every single media outlet hasn’t stopped talking about her since! And now I am anxious to see if Caitlyn will oust Kim in reality show ratings, too.
Caitlyn Jenner’s new docuseries (the new and improved word for reality show), “I Am Cait,” is debuting at the end of July on E! and we have our first peek at it now.
Without further ado – here she is: Caitlyn Jenner. We just reported that Bruce Jenner was going to reveal “her” on the cover of Vanity Fair for their July issue and here she is already.
Bruce aka Caitlyn has also started a new Twitter account to go along with the big reveal. Caitlyn shared, “I’m so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. Can’t wait for you to get to know her/me.”
After battling infertility (and reportedly undergoing IVF), Kim confirmed the news on last night’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians when she was shown telling her family the news. “I just got the blood test back and I am pregnant!” she reveals in the clip.
Bruce Jenner is petitioning a judge to throw out a wrongful death suit filed by the adult step-children of the victim of the fatal car accident he was involved in this February.
While it’s not entirely clear what ultimately caused the fatal car accident, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s SUV rear-ended a Lexus sedan driven by 69-year-old Kimberly Howe. Ms. Howe died at the scene as a result of injuries sustained from the accident, which Bruce described as a “devastating tragedy.” Five others were also injured, although Bruce was unharmed.
E!’s summer reality TV lineup thankfully doesn’t include a Kardashian spinoff -unless you count the widely anticipated docu-series about Bruce Jenner and his transition to living as a woman. But that’s not all E! is giving us this summer -there’s also more Botched to look forward to as well as a whole host of new shows so you can escape from the heat.
It’s almost been a whole entire year that Kim Kardashian stayed married to a man, ya’ll! And that man, Kanye West, wants a do-over. Well, of sorts. The couple plans to renew their vows in Paris, France, later this month. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and her hip hop hubby, in full diva mode, will be actually be renting out the Eiffel Tower for festivities surrounding the blessed event, according to reports. A private dinner will also be held at the posh 58 Tour Eiffel restaurant.
Paris is where the couple started their media storm wedding preparation last year with family before flying to Florence, Italy, for the main event on May 24 of 2014. Kim still thinks of Paris fondly, saying, “We fell in love in Paris…and then I got pregnant with our daughter in Florence.” After their 2014 wedding, Kim also told Jimmy Kimmel that “It was the most amazing experience just to be able to share it with so many family members and friends. We wanted everyone to be on this love journey with us.”
