One of my dirtiest secrets is that I watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians if nothing else is on. I don’t even like the family, but sometimes, on a lazy Sunday, I’ll get transfixed and watch three episodes during some hellish E! marathon. Thus, I have a strange affection for Bruce Jenner. He’s surrounded by bossy, crazy women, and he’s just doing the best he can. He seems like a pretty good dad and step-father to the Kardashian girls. All of the women in his life seem to adore him, even if they are constantly harassing him and generally making him intensely uncomfortable in his own home.
One of worst-kept secrets of the show and of Bruce Jenner’s life is that his face is wrecked. I’d heard that he had some bad work done, but I never knew the bad facelift was such an established fact that his step-daughter Kim would announce a second, reparative facelift to the world. But it’s happened! Kim Kardashian is blogging about Bruce’s new face:
After hinting that someone in her family will have plastic surgery, Kim Kardashian is now revealing that her step-dad, Bruce Jenner (dad to Hills star Brody Jenner), is the one who went under the knife.
“Ever since I revealed in recent interviews that one of my family members would be going under the plastic surgeon’s knife on the show, I’ve been inundated with emails and calls asking who it is!!” she blogs. “I can reveal that it was my stepdad Bruce!”
“Twenty five years ago, Bruce was ill-advised by a doctor to have a partial facelift and a nose job,” Kim writes. “Unfortunately, the result wasn’t what Bruce had hoped for and for years since then he has been the victim of cruel taunts from the media.”
“Since he’s turning 60 in October, Bruce felt it was time to correct the mistakes made by the previous doctor so he went to a new doctor for a second facelift,” she continues. “The results are amazing! Bruce looks better than ever and he is extremely happy with the result. Make sure you watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians next Sunday to see what Bruce went through for his new look!”

A facelift from twenty-five years ago? That must have been something, to go in for cosmetic surgery in the olden days. Did they even have scalpels back then? It’s funny because even though facelift technology and cosmetic surgery has probably developed by leaps and bounds over the years, people still look the same post-facelift today: surprised, squinty and bland. Bruce always looks “shocked” at whatever is happening in his house – so is he really surprised, or is it just the bad lift? We’ll see when his new face premieres. Here’s hoping the man can smile without wincing!
