The Buzz Cut: More Jenndashians on the Way
In The Buzz Cut, we give hot takes on all of the intellectual and Internet-famous, celebrity and bizarre, buzzy and overlooked family and parenting news we gossiped about over lunch all week.
The new world order grows. Two of the Kardashian-Jenner clan are (possibly) pregnant: Khloe Kardashian just confirmed she and basketball player/boyfriend Tristan Thomas are expecting, saying she “cried tears of joy” because she was previously told that she may not be able to have children. We’re happy-crying for you too, girl. You were always our favourite Kardashian/Simpson. Sister Kylie Jenner, 19, is said to be pregnant also. If the rumours are true: Congrats, grasshopper, you’ve learned well. If they’re not, at least they’ve brought us truly the most pressing question of our times: Will Kylie have to skip lip injections if she’s pregnant?

Every news outlet — including the BBC — in celebrating Mehroonisa Siddiqui’s appointment to a BBC panel of 100 inspirational and innovative women from around the world, identifies her only as “Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s mother” and then goes on to list her son’s films and accomplishments. Really, y’all couldn’t think of anything more descriptive of an inspirational woman than the “mother of” title?
