  • Kris Jenner reportedly intervened with the two-hour special “Keeping Up With The Kardashians: About Bruce,” using her influence with E! to keep Bruce’s sons Brandon and Brody Jenner out the program. They’d apparently been scheduled to give interviews for the special before Kris had them canceled. I hope this isn’t true, because it’s extremely disheartening.

  • Just weeks after a devastating earthquake that killed over 8,000 people, Nepal was hit with another earthquake.

Our thoughts and well wishes are with everyone impacted by this nightmare. [BBC]
