Not only is he involved with those crazy Kardashians, but he now wants to wear their clothes…a bad joke (Kris is his wife and Kim is step-daughter).
At least it explains all that wild plastic surgery. Bruce Jenner, one of the cutest guys around, when he started looking like the cat lady eyebrows, and not just his, shot up. Rearranging his face was a first step to trading in his 65 year-old body for a more feminine one.
Gender swapping is nothing new, in or out of the press, Chaz Bono being the last scrutinized soul in 2011 heroically Dancing With The Stars.
There was a beautiful girl I met in a 12 Step meeting who seemed chiseled from ivory. One day I said to my friend Joe, “There’s something so perfect about Abigail…she looks like a young boy,” and Joe said, “It’s because she is one…well…in a manner of speaking.” I was shocked…so that’s why she looks as if Michelangelo made her.

She explains diplomatically what exactly happens undergoing this extreme operation. You have to want it pretty bad to go through with it.
There was a young man in the bed next to her who didn’t fare so well heartbreaking to read about, reminding you, it’s a huge risk.
What a pity the press zoom in like vultures when a story like this breaks he/she having no peace to speak of.
