Although both sides of Bruce Jenner’s family showed public support (tweets, interviews, soundbites) in the wake of his Diane Sawyer interview last week, things aren’t as hunky-dory as they may seem. (Are they ever!?) In the new issue of US Weekly, an “inside source” reveals, “It’s still Camp Jenner and Camp Kardashian, in a major way.” (On the Kardashian side are Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Rob, Kendall, Kylie, and Kris; on the Jenner side are Burt, Casey, Brandon, and Brody, Bruce’s kids from his marriages to Chrystie Scott and Linda Thompson.) Evidence of this divide may lie in the fact that the two camps have not come together in a joint statement, joint interview, or – US is told – even in a joint viewing of the original interview on TV last Friday. US reports, “In order to keep the peace, Bruce scheduled two separate viewing sessions for the 20/20 interview, one with his Keeping Up With the Kardashians family, and one with Scott and his four eldest kids, who appeared on the ABC special in a show of solidarity with their father.”
Kylie and Kendall Jenner, the youngest of the Jenner children, and the “link” between the Jenner/Kardashian tribes in many ways, are reported to be struggling the most with Bruce’s public revelation. “The whole transition was much harder for the Kardashian kids and Kylie and Kendall,” a source tells PEOPLE. “It was hard to grasp. And there was a lot of lying to the kids over the years on Bruce’s part, even as close as they were. It’s going to take some time for the kids to get used to it all.” But one more clue of the disrupt between the families came in the form of a tweet from Burt Jenner, 36, who wrote, “Having a hard time not putting a few people on blast who were not supporters beforehand, but want to act like they were all along.” Hinting at the tension between the Jenners and Kardashians, one source tells us, “He [Burt] feels they’re [the Kardashians] only supportive now for publicity.” Burt has since deleted the tweet.

Above: Camille Grammershowed off her legs and her shoes on the orange carpet this weekend at the Race to Erase MS event, but thankfully her “girls” stayed put when she bent over! Also at the event: her former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star Lisa Vanderpump.
Khloe Kardashian and sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner attended Calvin Klein Jeans’ celebration launch of the #mycalvins Denim Series at Chateau Marmont. Kim Kardashian was spotted out and about in NYC and then attending the Variety Power Women awards ceremony.
More specifically (sorta), Khloe plans to offer advice on how women can develop “strength and true beauty” in a “culture that worships skinny,” Khloe’s publisher, Regan Arts, says. Khloe comments, “I am so excited about sharing my philosophy on how I live and the power of strength. I hope to be an inspiration to readers everywhere on how they can create their own true strength and beauty inside and out.” The currently untitled advice book will hit shelves November 3 of this year. Just in time to fill those Christmas stockings! The book launch itself, occurring on May 31 at BookCon, will of course be filmed on this season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Kim Kardashianis the undisputed(?) queen of social media, naked selfies, and spinning-sextapes-into-goldmines, but now she’s using her power – and her bazillions of social media followers – to bring a little positive change into the world. (Did I wake up in an alternate reality?) According to Fish Wrapper, “Kim’s teamed up with Dr. Drew Pinsky for a documentary called ‘#RedFlag,’ which highlights the correlation between depression and social media today.”
Kim will serve as executive producer on the new show and says, “I am blessed to be surrounded by family and friends that are loving and nurturing, but not everyone has that kind of support. Twenty-five percent of adults in America will suffer from a mental illness in their lifetime, and many of them turn to social media to vent their depression, loneliness and isolation.”
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West headed off to NYC this week to attend the TIME 100 Gala to celebrate the magazine’s “most influential” honorees. Since Kimye made that list, they graced everyone with their presence. Comedian Amy Schumer was apparently so overwhelmed about seeing the “royal couple” that she dropped at Yeezus’ feet right on the red carpet.
It may have been a fancy schmancy gala, but Kanye is above that, ya’ll. He wore his finest tattered t-shirt to the event. Geniuses do not cave to the pressures of conformity. He’s a rebel. And a fashion God. Kneel before him. (I said kneel, not face-plant, Amy) I feel like I should start a Go Fund Me campaign to buy Kanye some new Hanes t-shirts with the neckbands in tact.
I will give Kim Kardashian some credit, from certain angles her dress looks very nice and fits fairly well for once. But from other angles, you can see the sheer material and carefully placed fabric triangles are barely holding her boobs in.
It must be an off-year for Time Magazine because the infamous news magazine just voted Kim Kardashian and Kanye West among their 100 most influential people who have shaped the past year. Seriously!? Are they that desperate for readers?!
