Bruce Jenner

Docuseries Both Serious and Humorous ...

Learning to Golf with Breasts

EXCLUSIVE

Bruce Jenner
's docuseries will have plenty of serious, eye-opening moments, but there will also be plenty of fun, including how Bruce will adapt his golf game with newly-formed breasts. 

Sources connected with the production tell TMZ, the goal of the 8-part docuseries is to educate people and provide hope and inspiration for those going through the challenges Bruce has faced. But as one source put it, "If all you have is a downer, you don't have a show."  

So we're told the show will have a balance, showing "the dark moments, the lighthearted moments and moments that are just plain hilarious."

Our production sources say Bruce's golf game will be front and center. Bruce is a great golfer, and apparently it's not an easy transition to swing with breasts.

There will also be a social aspect to the show. You'll recall Bruce mentioned he sometimes has wine and cheese parties with his girlfriends. That's on the table for the program, although nothing is set in stone.

We're also told the cosmetic side of Bruce's transition will be represented.  

As a production source said, "There will be a happy medium. Bruce has a great sense of humor and it will be showcased. But the show will deal with the very serious issues Bruce is committed to showing."

Our opinion ... that's exactly what the show should be -- it's not a tragic story, it's a life story.

Avoids Jail

EXCLUSIVE

Mama June Death Threats

The guy who admitted he threatened to gun down Mama June and her daughter on Facebook is getting off without serving jail time.

Andrew Kurt Summers pled guilty Monday to one count of making a terrorist threat. He got 3 years probation, and was fined $1,000. But the big news .... he won't be locked up.  

Summers -- who claimed it was all a big joke -- was also ordered to have no contact with Mama June, Pumpkin, or anyone else in their family. 

As TMZ first reported, Summers was arrested for making threats on Mama June's Facebook page.

Summers called it a "dumb mistake."

Kids Deliver Shocking News

Don't Do Reality TV!!!

4/27/2015 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0424-kim-jenners-getty-04In a truly weird turn, Bruce Jenner's sons, along with Kim Kardashian, are warning him to slow down on revealing too much of his journey on reality TV.

Sources connected with Bruce's brood tell us, Kim and the boys think Bruce was spectacular on the Diane Sawyer special and won over millions of people in the process.

They say they're worried Bruce's upcoming docuseries might "de-class" what he's accomplished. We're told they also urged Bruce not to do other interviews and finish the process in private.

We're told some of the kids have gone to their dad to express their concern, but the ship has sailed. Bruce believes the docuseries will educate people and create empathy, so he's committed.

We're also told Bruce's kids won't appear on his show.

Now that's strange.

Khloe and Lamar

Not Ready for Divorce

The Door's Open a Crack

4/27/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0424-khloe-kardashian-lamar-odom-tmz-01

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are NOT ready to divorce ... in fact, they're secretly talking.

Sources connected to both Khloe and Lamar tell TMZ, the 2 of them are not romantic and are not talking reconciliation, but they don't want to close the door on the marriage either. That explains why Khloe's divorce has been laying dormant in the courts for more than a year ... the judge has even said if she doesn't s*** or get off the pot, he'll dismiss it.

Our Lamar sources says there's bad blood on both sides.  It's not as if he's begging her to reconcile ... he feels betrayed by Khloe as well. The Lamar sources say she's told him he has to make some sort of "grand gesture" before they can go the next step, and so far he's not willing to do it.

For her part, we're told she has "a big heart" and doesn't want to hurt him by sealing the deal on the divorce.  But it's more than just mercy ... we're told she still has feelings for him.

0422-khloe-kardashian-lo-tattoo-instagram-01As for the pic Khloe posted showing her "LO" tattoo on a gearshift ... we're told it's not a sign she's going back with Lamar ... she just digs her new Bentley.

Kanye West

Music Execs Made Him

Feel Bruce Jenner's Pain

4/26/2015 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0426-kim-kardashian-kanye-west-bruce-jenner-TMZ-ABC-01Kanye West was set up to play the hero -- helping Kim Kardashian better understand Bruce Jenner's transition -- thanks to a bunch of crap he himself had to take on while coming up in the music biz.

As Jenner told Diane Sawyer ... Kanye lead Kim to a breakthrough by telling her everyone has to be true to themselves. Sources tell us Kanye was referring to how music execs made him feel about his identity in the rap game.

We're told Kanye felt like he stood out when his career was taking off -- he was a rapper who also had strong interests in other fields, such as fashion. But he felt like the honchos ignored his true identity, and were constantly trying to mold him into someone they could market better.

Sources say Kanye explained to Kim that standing up to those execs was the only thing that eventually brought him true happiness.

Pretty savvy on Kanye's part ... to recognize Bruce going through the same thing he did, and then convey that to Kim.

Welcome to the Good Life.

Big Ang

Drops Blonde Bombshell

After Cancer Surgery

4/26/2015 11:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0426-big-ang-new-hair-TMZ-01Big Ang is out and about and flaunting new blonde locks ... just a few weeks after undergoing a lifesaving operation to remove a cancerous tumor from her neck.

The "Mob Wives" star was looking good Saturday outside Teak restaurant in Red Bank, NJ, and even stopped to pose with a fan. We're guessing the neckerchief is there to cover any surgery scars -- in the most stylish way possible.

Sources close to Ang tell us she lightened up before the surgery ... because she felt like she just needed a change after getting the cancer diagnosis.

Work it, Ang.

Bruce Jenner's Ex-Playmate Friend

Breaks Down in Tears ...

He Doesn't Realize His Own Power

4/26/2015 7:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

One of Bruce Jenner's friends -- a former Playboy Playmate -- couldn't hold back her emotions about his transition ... and the impact he's having on society.

Deborah Driggs -- Miss March 1990 -- told us she's known Bruce for years, and admitted outside Spago Saturday night ... she couldn't hold back the water works when we asked her about the ABC special.

Watch ... Deborah's explanation about why she thinks Bruce is saving lives is pretty moving. She's also, we suspect, echoing the feelings of countless people.

By the way, Deborah has a golden connection to Bruce. They became friends though her ex-husband Mitch Gaylord -- the first male American gymnast to score a perfect 10 ... which earned him Gold in the '84 Olympics.

Kim Richards

I Checked Myself Into Rehab

4/25/2015 4:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0425-kim-richards-01Kim Richards had an ah-ha moment a few days ago ... she needed help, so she made the decision on her own to check into rehab.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ, Kim is in a live-in facility in Malibu which specializes in substance abuse. We're told she made the decision after consulting with family.

As we reported ... the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star was arrested 9 days ago at the Beverly Hills Hotel after allegedly causing a scene while heavily intoxicated. She was booked for trespass, resisting arrest, battery on a police officer, and public drunkenness.

We're told she will stay at the rehab facility "as long as it takes."

Republican Congressman

We Welcome

Bruce Jenner

4/25/2015 12:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz is happy Bruce Jenner will continue to embrace the GOP, telling us his party needs all the Cali support it can get. 

Chaffetz -- an ultra conservative from Utah who has become extremely influential in DC -- told our TMZ photog it's not his job to judge Jenner's choices.

It's interesting ... Chaffetz has become a powerful voice promoting the right of privacy. Although it seems Chaffetz is saying live and let live, he clearly has limits because he has opposed both gay marriage and medical marijuana use in the past.

Jenner told Sawyer he's a long time Republican with no plans of jumping parties. 

Bruce Jenner

Kim Had a Breakthrough

Thanks to Kanye

4/24/2015 7:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


ABC Breaking US News | US News Videos

Bruce Jenner says the most supportive family member by far in his transition journey has been Kim Kardashian ... and it's all thanks to Kanye West.

It's really an incredible story ... how Kanye sat Kim down and explained how being true to yourself is everything in life.

Diane Sawyer's special is just amazing.  Bruce's words are moving, thought-changing and it has to be the biggest moment ever for a lot of people who are really struggling.

Bruce Jenner

I've Always Had the Soul of a Woman

ABC Breaking US News | US News Videos

It's some of the most compelling TV in memory ... Bruce Jenner tells Diane Sawyer about the torment of living his life as an Olympic hero while living what he says is a lie.

Jenner scoffs at the notion this is a Kardashian stunt ... making it clear the notion of changing gender for publicity is absurd.

Jenner says, as we reported, this is the last time he will be known as Bruce Jenner, although he is not revealing his new name.

It is emotional, eye-opening and, frankly, amazing. You gotta see it.

I'm Pregnant!

And This Time I Call the Shots

4/25/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Anna Chickadee Cardwell Pregnant AgainAnna Chickadee Cardwell is pregnant ... but this time around grandma won't be in charge.

Chickadee tells TMZ, she and husband Michael are 6 weeks pregnant. If Mama June reads this it will be the first time she'll learn she's going to be a grandma 2 times over.

June was calling the shots after Anna's first baby, Kaitlyn, was born, but this time June will be allowed to visit when Anna's around, but that's it. 

Anna says she doesn't trust her mom's judgment anymore, because when she was younger, June would leave her with various people for long periods of time. One of them was child molester Mark McDaniel

Anna says the only men who she'll trust with the new baby will be her husband and Uncle Poodle.

But Anna knows the value of a buck ... she says that there's one thing Mama June will come in handy for ... diaper coupons. 

The woman loves a good bargain.

"Man, I'm glad I got out when I did. #Gottadoyou."
