Bruce Jenner is reportedly really struggling with all the chaos and extreme upset swirling around him. We already told you about the accident on the Pacific Coast Highway Saturday, Feb. 7, that he was involved in that ultimately resulted in the death of his former Calabasas neighbor. The four-car wreck has left the Olympic champion visibly shaken and upset. This comes on the heels of spending weeks under a microscope in the press because his gender reassignment transformation has been solidly confirmed. Unfortunately, his ex-wife Kris Jenner not only knew that Bruce struggled with his sexual identity, but she insisted they cover it up.READ MORE

Bruce Jenner Will Address His Physical Transformation in Upcoming Season of 'KUWTK'

Off-Key 10:44AM EDT

Bruce Jenner has been under a real microscope ever since splitting from Kris Jenner about 15 months ago. If he thought leaving her would mean less public scrutiny, he was wrong. Instead, every physical change Jenner has consciously made — and let's face it, there have been many — has led to speculation about his future plans. There have been many rumors about the Olympic champion embracing his feminine side and maybe even going so far as to have gender reassignment surgery. Jenner has stayed quiet, but apparently a particularly hurtful magazine cover last week has motivated him to address his changing appearance.READ MORE

Watchdog Group Morality in Media Is Criticizing 'Fifty Shades of Grey's' R Rating

Off-Key 10:44AM EDT

While most people seem to be questioning whether or not there is going to be enough sexual content in "Fifty Shades of Grey" to make it feel like the book has come to life onscreen, there is a watchdog group taking direct aim at the film and its R rating. Morality in Media is concerned that the MPAA giving this flick an R rating due to "unusual behavior" is not an accurate enough description to inform patrons of the actual content. It is kind of hard to imagine that there is an adult out there who has not heard of "Fifty Shades of Grey" after a few years of major discussion in the press, isn't it? Well, Morality in Media has issued a statement requesting that the MPAA change its explanation of the R rating that the film has received. "What the term 'unusual' does not account for is the coercion, sexual violence, female inequality and BDSM themes from which the entire 'Fifty Shades' plot is based. Such a vague evaluation puts viewers at risk, sending the message that humiliation is pleasurable and that torture should be sexually gratifying. We'd like to change the MPAA rating for 'Fifty Shades of Grey' to read: 'Promotes torture as sexually gratifying, graphic nudity, encourages stalking and abuse of power, promotes female inequality, glamorizes and legitimizes violence against women,'" says the watchdog group.READ MORE

Camille Cosby Is Defending Her Husband as Scandal Surrounding Bill Cosby Deepens

Off-Key 14:11PM EDT

Bill Cosby's life and business has been completely turned upside down over the last several weeks by a series of allegations that are shocking and impossible to ignore. Had just one or two women gone public with allegations of sexual misconduct, then Cosby would probably be standing on much stronger footing right now. Instead, more than two dozen women have come forward to paint the popular actor and comedian as, at best, manipulative and, at worst, a calculating serial rapist who has spent decades drugging and assaulting young women in Hollywood. Through it all, Cosby's wife of more than 50 years has stood by his side, keeping silent — at least until now. Camille Cosby has finally decided to speak up and out on behalf of her husband. She issued a simple statement that was intended to assure people that Cosby is indeed as good a man as the characters he has portrayed. "The man I met, and fell in love with, and whom I continue to love, is the man you all knew through his work. He is a kind man, a generous man, a funny man, and a wonderful husband, father and friend. He is the man you thought you knew," explained Camille. She also went on to liken this scandal involving her husband to the alleged UVA gang rape story that "Rolling Stone" ran before double-checking its sources.READ MORE
