On last night’s second part of “The Bachelorette” premiere, Kaitlyn Bristowe was chosen over Kelly Kapowski Britt Nilsson to continue her journey towards finding a three month relationship, I mean everlasting love.

Bruce Jenner Reveals He Is Scheduled To Have Gender Reassignment Surgery

There was just so much TV to watch last night — the “Mad Men” finale! A climactic “Game of Thrones”! — that I must admit to not yet watching the first part of the”Keeping Up With The Kardashians: About Bruce” special.

Well, it turns out, ABC couldn’t decide between “charming, charismatic beauty, Britt” and “Kaitlyn, the gorgeous, fun- loving, warm-hearted, but irreverent firecracker.” (Um, Kaitlyn has more adjectives, doesn’t that count as extra points?)

Consider the Kardashian sisters. Strip away your groans, the millions, the lavish mansions, the exotic vacations, the Kanye. What do you have? Five insanely close sisters, going through life together. The Kardashians (well, the Kardashian-Jenners) get a ton of flack for being spoiled, obnoxious, and outrageous.
