Even the most ardent Kardashian fan has to admit that the last few seasons of Keeping Up With the Kardashians have been pretty painful. From Kim Kardashian's whole mess of a marriage to Kris Humphries to the aftermath, it hasn't been a whole lot of fun. But things are looking up (way up) with news that Brody Jenner is joining the show.
Bruce Jenner's 29-year-old son has done some cameos before, but now it sounds like he's going to be somewhat of a regular. He and Kim were spotted a few weeks ago filming at Barneys in Beverly Hills. A rep told Us Weekly he "is joining the show but may not be in every episode. It depends on the storyline." We'll take it.
Talk about spicing things up. If ever I was to turn cougar, my sights would be set on Brody Jenner. Since his days on The Hills, I've had a huge crush on the ripped surfer dude. He's hot, has enough hint of bad boy, and is just what the show needs -- male eye candy (hey, it's not like you're watching the show to get smarter in the first place). And let's face it, the other guys on the show (Bruce Jenner, Rob Kardashian, and Scott Disick) are just not ogle-worthy at ALL. Brody, on the other hand, is all sorts of it.
Also, there's only so much girl drama we can take, and with Kim stepping back from the show with her new baby and all, we need some new bodies. Brody could add some interesting story lines beyond the mind-numbingly boring ones they've tried to bring in with Jonathan Cheban. Brody has dated everyone from Lindsay Lohan to Avril Lavigne, and following his love life could be interesting. And if not, he can always just walk around with his shirt off.
Season 8 is scheduled to premiere in June. Can't wait!
