For her latest profile, writer Taffy Brodesser-Anker takes a refreshingly hard and honest look at how momager Kris Jenner has helped make every family member's story, including Bruce Jenner's transition, into either a profitable moment or an exclusive. Here's a little snippet: "Bruce has no privacy; none of them do. That’s the deal they made with one another. When they’re silent on Bruce, they aren’t protecting him from the judgments of a cruel world; they are protecting Bruce’s exclusive." {The New York Times Magazine}

In never-ending American Apparel news, ex-CEO Dov Charney has filed a lawsuit against New York hedge fund Standard General for allegedly paying a law firm millions to come up with reasons to oust him and then defaming Charney in the media. Standard General's response? "The facts speak for themselves, and we are confident that Mr. Charney will be held accountable for this knowing intentional abuse of the legal system." Oh, the drama. {Reuters}
