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.
Adding her wisdom on the “power of the selfie,” Kim explains, “I think it’s really cute when you go and the girls, they ask for a selfie, and they say, ‘Will you post this on your Instagram? It’s so funny to see the power of a selfie… As silly as that may seem, it really makes their day.” Can’t you just picture Kim in a Skeletor pose wielding an iPhone? By the Power of Butt-Naked Instagrams! I have the SELFIE! Erghh.
TMZ reports: “Kris Jenner was in the dark about Bruce’s desire to become a woman during their entire marriage according to sources directly and closely connected to Kris.” These sources also add that “Kris insists the subject never came up again during their entire marriage. She also says she never saw Bruce dressed as a woman during their entire relationship.”
We start off with Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian wrapping up Kim’s surgery and it appears everything went well! Full steam ahead baby-making in bathrooms with Kanye West again. Yay.
Kris is at an indoor go-cart racetrack with Khloe and Scott Disick. Kris explains that she tries to spend one-on-one time with the kids and hasn’t seen Kylie in a few weeks. What? Where is she living? Isn’t she like 15? Is that legal?
After the Easter egg hunt was over at the Kardashian-Jenner house, the family dialed up the paparazzi, grabbed their not-so-best white outfits and headed to church in Woodland Hills for an Easter service photo op. Kourtney Kardashian was the only one who didn’t get the all-white wardrobe memo.
There are so many things wrong with these photos but I’ll leave that to you guys. All I’m gonna say is that Kendall Jenner looks like she’s heading to the club (and then posted an after-church-service, nearly nude photo of herself on Instagram). And kudos to family genius Kanye West for going “holey” for the service. Also, is this the church that Kris “co-founded?”
We begin this week’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians with Scott Disick accidentally walking in on Kris Jenner in her closet while she is getting dressed. She spazzes and screams at him to get out of her space! Scott immediately runs downstairs to tell Kourtney Kardashian and Kim Kardashian that he did not intentionally try to creep on their mom and Kris whirls into the kitchen freaking out about wanting to have some private space as she flashes everyone her S&M bra under her robe. First of all ew, but also somewhat impressed as she looks good for a woman her age trying to pretend she’s 30.
Later on, Kourtney is in the kitchen with Khloe Kardashian and Khloe mentions that she thinks Scott is up to a shady business deal as all these multiple exotic cars are popping up in the driveway and there are about 10 different license plates strewn upon the counter. Like what is he up to? He could very well have a legitimate biz going on and while I don’t blame him for attempting to expand his skills of profiting outside the realms of reality TV, I highly doubt he’s doing anything resembling a la Guidice to make a buck. We’ll see what he’s up to later on.
This post came after aKeeping Up with the Kardashians scene aired in which Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian discuss Rob’s very public problems. Kim commented that Rob just needed to “get out of his funk.” Us Weekly reports an insider saying Rob basically feels Kim is two-faced. “His post was about how she seems caring in public, but he feels ignored,” says the source.
