Bruce Jenner has reason to smile. He was just named Esquire Magazine's Father of the Year. It's easy to forget that the 1976 Olympian was once a celebrity in his own right. The man on the Wheaties box was an inspiration back then and clearly he still is.
As the new season of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" premiered the words "Poor Bruce" were trending on Twitter. Mr. Jenner is, of course, the long-suffering patriarch of the Kardashian-Jenner clan. In response, his stepdaughter Kim Kardashian tweeted, "OMG 'Poor Bruce' is trending! We love you Bruce!!"
A recurring theme of the reality TV mega show is that Bruce never knows what his wife, Kris, and other family members are up to. Nonetheless, Bruce plugs on as a steady and strong dad to his youngest daughters, Kendall and Kylie, and a listening ear to his stepchildren. His other biological children include Brody Jenner, Brandon Jenner, Burt Jenner and Casey Jenner. Since Bruce always feels a bit out of the loop with his family, we thought we'd let the celebrated dad know what's up with his loved ones.
Here's what's happening in the world of Team Bruce:
Luckily for Bruce, it doesn't appear that his wife is up to anything more wacky than usual. She's been making the talk show rounds and causing a stir. She co-hosted recently on "The View" and appeared on "The Doctors" last week. Kris is looking forward to a new grandchild from daughter Kourtney Kardashian.
Kylie and Kendall Jenner
Bruce's "baby" daughters are becoming known as fashionistas. Last year, Teen Vogue called them "Kardashians in Training." Currently, they are Seventeen Magazine contributors. Kendall and Kylie also appeared on "Million Dollar Closets" for HGTV.
Per his Twitter account, Bruce's stepson is currently in London with sister Kim and BF Kanye West. Rob is still basking in his "Dancing With The Stars" fame from last season. He also was a co-star on "Khloe and Lamar." His current girlfriend is pop star Rita Ora.
The media savvy Brody is prepping to launch a new venture. His business Rocketfrog is aimed at gambling enthusiasts. Brody has appeared on several different reality shows and been linked to several Hollywood starlets.
What do you think?
Why was "Poor Bruce" trending? Is he Father of the Year material? Is Bruce a good dad?
