Bruce Jenner - I don't know what to say.

Yesterday as I lay exhausted on the couch while Cameron was napping (I tried sleeping too, but I think I have pregnancy induced insomnia), I tuned into ye old Keeping Up With the Kardashians.  This show both disgusts and intrigues me.  The latest crapisode was about Bruce Jenner finding out that his daughter Kendall is on birth control and Kim getting diagnosed with psoriasis (gasp.).  First off, Bruce freaks out about the possibility of Kendall even needing birth control, but then in a conversation with his "wife" Kris, he refuses to have the "birds and bees" talk with Kendall (15) or his other daughter Kylie (13).  He instead gets Khloe to figure out what is going on with his youngest kids -- I don't know what is worse parenting -- refusing to do the talk or sending Khloe to get the scoop.  Also, isn't it a little late?  I think I was given version of the talk starting at age 8 or something...

This whole debacle was just uncomfortable for everyone and I had second hand embarrassment watching it unfold.  I refuse to believe that Kendall and Kylie don't know "much" about sex being that their sisters have pretty much all made sex tapes (well, maybe not Khloe).  Man up Bruce, you fathered these girls, now figure out how to raise them into responsible women -- considering that Kris pretty much failed in this area with her first three daughters, you would think that he would be stepping up to the plate.  All of this also made me dread giving Cameron "the talk," although I am thinking that it will be more of an on-going dialogue in our house.  Right now I just want to stop him from throwing food on the floor or sticking Little People in the subwolfer.

Watching this show also made wonder what Bruce Jenner used to look like before he became scary plastic surgery "man."  Really, his face doesn't even look like a man anymore.  It is freaky.  Here is a pic of him from back in the day and a recent shot.  Enjoy!
