Caitlyn Jenner: The Kardashians Don’t Want Anything to Do With Me!

Not everything this year has gone as Caitlyn Jenner had hoped.

True, she might be dating a hot blonde 21-year-old, but Cait has been thoroughly disappointed by Trump. And she’s also become estranged from various Kardashians — from her family.

Caitlyn is publicly lamenting that the Kardashians want her out of their lives.

Caitlyn Jenner spoke about her memoir, The Secrets of My Life, and its detrimental effect on her relationship with the Kardashians at the Cambridge Union on Monday night.

And this sounds pretty rough.

“It’s been a little bit tough over the past couple of years on the Kardashian side.”

Yeah, we’d say so. Especially since April, when the memoir was published.

“To be honest, I don’t talk to them anymore. Kim I haven’t talked to in a year.”

That tracks, more or less. Back in September, we learned that Caitlyn and Kim hadn’t spoken in 9 months.

(11 months is “a year,” for most intents and purposes)

“They don’t want me in their lives, they bashed me pretty badly.”

We saw quite a lot of that, with Caitlyn getting called insane by her own family on Keeping Up With The Kardashians over some of the things that were written in her book.

“It’s devastating when your kids do that. It really hurt.”

Remember, folks — Caitlyn fathered Kendall and Kylie, but she’s been Kim and Kourtney and Khloe and Rob’s dad for decades, too.

Caitlyn doesn’t feel that their responses are justified.

“I tried to be honest in my book — very fair and very nice. Unfortunately, they didn’t take it that way.”

Honesty is not always the best policy — particularly when writing a memoir about your very famous, still-living family members.

But Caitlyn emphasizes that the Kardashians were not the focus.

“In the book I express some opinions and got shut down. It was not about the Kardashians.”

Sure, but obviously people are going to latch onto Kardashian news.

“They were only mentioned on 20 pages.”

Do you know how much any one of us could upset people in our lives by telling 100% truthful stories about them in just 20 pages?

You could lose every friend and family member that you have with too much honesty.

You gotta have a filter, folks. Yes, even when writing a memoir. You don’t need to lie; you just need to edit.

But Caitlyn thinks that the Kardashians doing what they do — turning every circumstance into entertainment for their own professional and financial benefit — is to blame for the perception that Caitlyn’s book was negative towards them.

“They made it more about them on television. The book was about my life. That caused a lot of the separation between us.”

Like we said, they sure did talk about it on their show.

But when you speak negatively of your celebrity family members outside of, like, a therapist’s office, don’t expect for them to be super chill about it.

Caitlyn seems to be regarding her book, because it is a memoir, as some sort of sacrosanct confessional whose contents should be untouchable.

But … it’s a book, and the Kardashians are (mostly) real people with (arguably) real feelings.

It’s important for us to note that Caitlyn still gets along with some members of what’s considered the Kardashian clan.

Caitlyn is still close with Kylie. Cait appeared on Life of Kylie. and the two regularly hang out on Father’s Day.

Also, Caitlyn took her gal pal Sophia Hutchins to Kendall Jenner’s 22nd birthday party.

That was potentially a little awkward, since Cait’s “friend” is still only 21 and therefore younger than Kendall, but it shows that Caitlyn and Kendall are still getting along.

Still, it’s sad to see a family torn apart. We wonder if they’ll mend fences or just resign themselves to this estrangement.


Kylie Jenner: Huh? I Don’t Have a Baby Bump!!!

Kylie Jenner may have gotten pregnant by accident…

… but the 20-year old now has a very clear purpose:

To break the actual news of this pregnancy on her own terms.

We’re way beyond this being an achievable goal, of course.

Nearly every website on the Internet has written about Kylie being pregnant, with word already leaking about the gender of her impending baby (a girl), along with its due date (early spring).

Still. Kylie has not confirmed the development. Nor has anyone in her family.

And the reason why is obvious:

They want to sell the story either to the highest tabloid bidder… or make the announcement on Keeping Up with the Kardashians or maybe even Life of Kylie Season 2.

The family wants to maximize ratings, money and exposure.

However, The Daily Mail published photos on Sunday morning of Kylie boarding a private plane, wearing some baggy clothing and appearing larger than usual.

There’s a pretty clear baby bump in these snapshots.

But not according to Kylie!

Peeved over the outing of her expecting stomach by this British newspaper, Jenner took to Instagram in response and alleged the Daily Mail pictures were edited.

“First of all if you’re going to photoshop my photos blogs/paps!! Check for the crooked lines in the background.2nd photo is clearly altered,” she wrote.

As some kind of evidence (we guess?) that she doesn’t actually have a baby bump at the moment, Kylie then shared a photo of herself in this same baggy outfit, apparently hanging out at a convenience story with half-sister Khloe.

The images in question were taken by a photographer from X17Online.

The photo agency has responded to Kylie’s accusations of Photoshop as follows:

“100% REAL! No Photoshop, #nofilter, no additives, no preservatives—all organic and all REAL!”

And then The Daily Mail has written the following:

“ can confirm the pictures have not been digitally altered.”

Folks are welcome to believe either side in this debate, of course.

But most Internet users appear to be on to Jenner.

Based on the comments below, they understand that Kylie is just trying to delay the baby bump/pregnancy reveal until it works best for her financially…

Kylie Jennercriticism

Assuming she really is expecting, this will be Kylie Jenner’s first child.

The father is Travis Scott, a rapper Kylie only first started dating a few months ago.

We’re pretty sure the couple is still an item, but they actually haven’t been seen in public very much since the major news broke.

And Scott hasn’t confirmed it, either.

So we’re stuck playing this very silly waiting game, with the entire free world well aware that Kylie Jenner is pregnant, yet Kylie and her family trying to pretend otherwise until the perfect moment.

Whatever, though.

Rain Brown: I Don’t Know if My Mom’s Going to Make It

Just over a week ago, we told you that Ami Brown’s second round of chemo was coming up. 

The Alaskan Bush People star’s family might be living large in a Beverly Hills mansion, but the Brown matriarch spends her time these days undergoing chemo and then recovering from those sessions.

Well, she’s undergoing chemotherapy treatments now, and we have some details on how she’s coping.

We know that chemotherapy is a brutal but vitally necessary treatment as Ami Brown fights against stage 4 lung cancer.

Rain Brown, the youngest member of the Brown family, took to Instagram and offered an update on her mother’s progress.

“My mom and I spent all morning making our favorite peach tea and our own mix of essential oils together.”

Though it’s a bad situation, it’s good that they still have mother-daughter time.

They use the essential oils as a homeopathic treatment — to aid comfort and recovery.

Rain lists the specific scents:

“(frankincense, eucalyptus, pink grapefruit, and spearmint) with coconut oil as a carrier and a touch of shimmer.”

A lot of those sound great.

Rain sounds like she has a very realistic grasp on her mother’s condition:

“She is now going though her second round of chemo, sadly I can’t say how she is doing just yet, but we are all hopeful and faithful.”

Sometimes “I don’t know” is the most honest, mature answer that you can give.

“Thank you all so much for your support and love in this harsh time. Stay strong my rainbows, God bless.”

Rain is such a sweetheart. We’re so glad that she’s there for her mother.

We know that being surrounded by (almost) her whole family — since they all live just minutes from the hospital — must be a great source of comfort for Ami.

Rain is maintaining a healthy perspective on life.

This is important, too. As we’ve mentioned, cancer patients do go through their ordeal alone. All of their loved ones are along for the ride.

And, at just 14 years of age, “Rainy” does not have the kind of life experience or coping mechanisms that some of her much older siblings do.

(No matter how bad your experiences as an adult may be, they would always be worse as a child)

Rain shared a quote on Instagram:

“What screws us up most in life is the picture in our head of how it’s supposed to be.”

Rain also added quite a few of her own words in the caption:

“Quotes aren’t about who said what when and what they meant when they said it they are about a few words put together in a way so beautiful it speaks to everyone differently.”

Rain regards quotes as a sort of inspirational poetry, then. If we’re reading this correctly.

“For me they were something I found myself drawn to and couldn’t find out why, they helped me through some of the darkest times in my life, and have lifted me up to great heights.”

Rain is at that age where she’s figuring out who she wants to be and also who she is.

Quotes can have a powerful impact and become a guiding force as you figure out what resonates with you — and what does not.

“People always mock them for being so small and stupid but knowing so much, meaning so much but just being something someone else said.”

We think that what Rain is trying to say here is that some people have a dismissive attitude towards quotes, but she finds meaning in them.

“Being a copycat if you will, but I find quotes are beautiful and hold all the secrets to life.”

And we think that, here, she’s asserting that using quotes isn’t being a copycat, it’s finding inspiration.

“Even the ones that are right in front of our eyes, quotes are like a magic that is always there but only makes sense when you need them to most.”

That’s true. Even a quote from a childhood cartoon — or a dream — can have meaning.

(I’ll always remember that famous dream that someone had where Obama said “Violence for violence is the rule of beasts”)

“So I guess you could say I’m a lot like a quote small and young but has a deeper understanding then even I could ever understand.”

It’s cute that she was able to connect how people are dismissive of quotes with how they sometimes underestimate her.

it’s sad, too.

And tough, being the baby of the family — especially such a large family.

Rain will pull through, though, even as she battles depression.

Right now, we wish that we had as much confidence in Ami Brown’s fragile health.


Kourtney Kardashian: I Don’t Wear Panties OR Care What Scott Disick Does!

Kourtney and Scott may no longer be a couple, but they’ll always be linked and there’s still so much to say about them.

One, there are some truly bone-chilling rumors floating around that Scott Disick and Sofia Richie might step things up … with an engagement.

Two, Kourtney Kardashian is absolutely not letting her infamous ex keep her down. In fact, she’s stepping up her sexy game and going panty-free in a steamy new photo.

(No, this isn’t the new photo, as Kourtney looks all kinds of hot but is very clearly not going commando)

For years, Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick were a — or perhaps the — central couple on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Sure, they had their ins and outs, but Kourtney was the mom. She was the one who had things together — relatively speaking. And Scott was her snarky love.

But Kourtney and Scott are a couple no longer. They’ll always be connected, by their shared history and by their three young children, but they aren’t just “on a break.” They’re done.

And while any couple could conceivably get back together one day, Scott Disick’s terrible behavior throughout the spring and summer of this year make that seem less and less likely.

Kourtney’s moved on, though. She’s with Younes Bendjima.

Younes is a hot younger guy. The two of them don’t seem crazy-serious, but they’ve been together for a while now. So what they have is working.

And even though Scott Disick freaked out over Kourtney dating, he spent most of 2017 chasing every 19-year-old model he and his alcoholic genitals could find.

But it seems that Scott has settled on one very special 19-year-old model.

Which … might be worse.

Scott Disick is dating Sofia Richie — yes, that Sofia Richie. She’s a 19-year-old model, so we’d say that the guy has a type.

Quite frankly, given Scott’s misadventures this summer, we don’t blame Lionel Richie for being “scared to death.”

Unlike Scott’s other flings, this one seems more serious. And even Instagram-official.

Most worrying was what may have been a throw-away line … or may have been hints that Sofia Richie and Scott Disick plan to elope.

That would be a disastrous mistake for both of them, but rumors of a planned engagement continue to linger in the air.

And in our nightmares.

And this very public relationship does more than horrify Lionel Richie — Kourtney has to be feeling it, too, right?

But Kourtney’s not letting this keep her down.

In fact, she’s as sexy and ever and refuses to hide it.

Kourtney tagged this outrageously sexy photo with #ad, even though it’s for her own collaboration.

Dang, those FTC rules don’t screw around, huh?

She’s promoting her collaboration with Pretty Little Thing, posing in front of a New York Taxi in a tantalizing dress.

We see legs, we see beauty, and … we do not see any sign of panties. She went commando!

Can we just remind you that Kourtney Kardashian is 38?

It’s not every day that one of the Kardashians strikes a blow for women everywhere, but there are plenty of sleezy dudes out there who look like diseased goblins who think that women need to bundle up after age 34.

Kourtney’s reminding the world that even MILFs who are pushing 40 can sex it up with the best of them.

And maybe she’s reminding Scott that the mother of his children is still every bit as jaw-droppingly sexy as the barely legal teens that he’s been slobbering over all year.

We can see why Scott Disick might find teen models appealing, and not just because they’re unreasonably attractive 19-year-olds.

More than Scott Disick’s summer of escapism, more than his unquenchable lust (ew), we think that these younger women make Scott Disick feel valid and mature.

Kourtney, who always (more or less) has her ducks in a row, must be quite the contrast to Scott’s laid-back, dysfunctional mess. To the point where even Scott must know it.

19-year-olds are still figuring out life but think that they’re grown-ups (adulthood starts at 18, but you’re not a grown-up until, like, 30). That probably makes Scott feel like, relatively, he has a lot of wisdom and experience to offer.

That’s our armchair analysis, anyway.

Scott’s need for an ego boost shouldn’t tie up the best years of a young woman’s life, though. Let’s hope that Sofia Richie realizes that before she’s in too deep.


Cate Blanchett’s Message to Hollywood’s Harvey Weinsteins, ‘We Don’t Want to F*** You’

Cate Blanchett took a not-so-subtle jab at Harvey Weinstein and other sexual harassers by pointing out women who wear sexy clothes don’t necessarily want to have sex — but in much fewer words. Cate was speaking at the InStyle Awards Monday night in…
