[ - ] So I just read Bruce jenner's ex-wife's (Brody's mom) statements about his transition, etc and obviously it was the main reason they split up 30 years ago... he even started going thru the reassignment process when they split up... So how/why did he end up with kris? Did he just go back into hiding, turn back to being "manly" and went after her? How sad for her... Did she really have no idea before marrying him? I guess she hasn't said much... 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I think she went after him. Saw a cash cow, became his manager, convinced him to shelf the transition. He also said he downplayed it to her but with obvious breasts it's crazy that that happened and he went off hormones. Probably also because she wanted more kids, his specifically. [ Reply | More ]

Ok, this is a *really* dumb one, but here is a silly example (the one that prompted him to point this out to me). My bf stated that it was his belief that women, generally speaking, should not get bangs or wear any sort of jacket with fringes on it. I asked him "why not?" And he said that, as a general rule, those looks are not particularly flattering to most women. So I said (just to be silly), "well what if a fabulously gorgeous, well educated supermodel showed up here with bangs and a fringed jacket? Don't you think that she would be attractive?" He laughed and admitted that, sure, under those highly unlikely circumstances, those styles would be attractive.... According to him this is not the first time that I have basically made up a really weird counter example to a general statement that he has tried to make. [ Reply | More ]
