With rumors of Kris Jenner cheating with Todd Waterman running rampant, she decided to face the music on Keeping Up with the Kardashians Sunday.

The reality momager (how much do we hate ourselves for writing momager) finally met with her old flame for ratings/closure after 20 plus years.

"I think that this dinner has taught me a lot of things," she said afterward.

What were those things, exactly, and how did Bruce Jenner react? We break it all down for you right here, right now in THG's official +/- recap:

Jenner, Kris

When Kris tells Bruce about her epiphany, he doesn't exactly respond in kind. Plus 20 because he wouldn't be a man if he accepted that explanation.

"I don't even know how I can trust you," he says. "I can't believe you."

Have no fear, though, because Kourtney, Khloe and Kim Kardashian have an idea ... to hook mom up to a polygraph. Because that happens. Minus 40.

"We know that we're playing with fire," Kourtney says. "But if she really has nothing to hide, she shouldn't be worried about answering them." True. Plus 5.

Kris admits Kim Kardashian is her favorite. Money talks! Plus 10.

She also comes out clean as far as bilking her famous daughters and not being in love with Todd, so perhaps that will assuage fans/Bruce? Plus 10.

"I passed," Kris says afterward. "Hopefully my family will realize I've been telling the truth all along." They clearly all read the script, so yeah. Minus 30.

It's become all but certain that a memorable star from a previous season is chosen for the upcoming season of ABC's The Bachelor or The Bachelorette.

This year gave us two very popular candidates in Arie Luyendyk, Jr., and Sean Lowe, both of whom lost to Jef Holm in the Emily Maynard sweepstakes.

Arie and Sean would both be slam-dunk picks for the network, while Roberto Martinez - The Bachelorette winner in 2010 - is said to be out of the mix.

That leaves Arie Luyendyk, Jr., and Sean Lowe as co-frontrunners. Which of the two would you prefer to see this winter? Vote below!

And the Winner is?

Who should be the next Bachelor, Arie Luyendyk, Jr. or Sean Lowe? Both 2012 Bachelorette finalists would be worthy ... but only one can be picked! View Poll »

Snoop Dogg has been banned from entering Norway for two years after trying to enter the country and being stopped by customs for cannabis possession.

The star was held at Kjevik Airport while on his way to a music festival, when officials found him with eight grams of the drug. He was fined and released.

The 40-year-old's lawyer said the rapper had no immediate plans to appeal against the ban. His client could "live with the decision," he added.

Snoop was also found at the time to be carrying more cash than is legally allowed and was fined 52,000 kroner (around $10,000) for the offenses.

He went on to perform at Norway's Hove Festival before leaving Norway without incident. He won't be back until Summer 2014 at the earliest.

In January, Snoop was also arrested in Texas after border agents found cannabis on his tour bus. He was released with a citation there as well.

The rapper is currently on tour and is expected to appear at the Catalpa Festival in NYC Sunday. We're guessing there will be weed present.

A billboard featuring a meme-style juxtaposition of President Obama and Aurora shooter James Holmes has garnered a great deal of attention, very little of it positive.

The billboard, located in Caldwell, Idaho, features a picture of Holmes, accompanied with the text “Kills 12 in a movie theater with assault rifle, everyone freaks out.”

Juxtaposed is a photo of Barack Obama, with the text: “Kills thousands with foreign policy, wins Nobel Peace Prize.” Check out the controversial billboard below:

Obama Aurora Billboard

The sentiment is similar to one of Heath Ledger's memorable Dark Knight quotes, in which he says no one would blink if he announced a “truck load of soldiers will be blown up," but people would "lose their minds" if he said a city mayor was going to die."

Holmes infamously likened himself to The Joker after the Aurora rampage.

Maurice Clements, the man in charge of the billboard, says he is part of a group who honor the memory of the late Libertarian activist Ralph Smeed.

He says the group is angry over Obama not bringing troops home from war.

"We’re all outraged over that killing in Aurora, Colo., but we’re not outraged over the boys killed in Afghanistan," Clements said of his message.

Many locals are outraged, calling the billboard "pathetic," and "abhorrent."

What do you think of the Obama-James Holmes billboard?

The highs and lows of the Summer Olympics were on full display during preliminary competition in women's gymnastics last night.

Reigning world champion Jordyn Wieber was reduced to tears after failing to qualify for the finals, while Aly Raisman was among two Americans who did move on to the medal round.

But not without a lot of anxiety on the part of her parents, Lynn and Ricky, who were mic'd up and videotaped by NBC as their daughter attempted to move on. The results were both humorous and adorable, as you can witness mother and father living and dying with every move Aly makes:

"It was such a thrill to watch our daughter compete at the Olympic games," Lynn and Ricky said after the event. "We are so proud and happy she advanced to finals and can't wait for team finals. All the girls did so great, we are proud of them all."

Karen Klein, the Upstate New York bus monitor made famous by a viral video in which she was bullied by middle school boys, is planning to retire.

The announcement comes just one week after a web campaign effort padded the bus monitor's pockets with more than $700,000 in donations.

"I'm not quitting because of what happened. That's not it," Klein, the 68-year-old bus monitor, told The AP. "I enjoyed working with the kids."

"I guess it's just my time to leave. That's what I've decided."

In the video, Klein is shown sitting on a school bus as teen boys hurl the most vile insults at her for over 10 minutes, eventually making her cry.

The video has been reposted so many times it's impossible to tell how many times it's been viewed, but Klein obviously became a cause celebre.

Max Sidorov, 25, was inspired to start the campaign on Indiegogo (dot) com, writing "Lets Give Karen – the bus monitor – Klein a Vacation!"

Although Sidorov's goal was to raise $5,000 by July, the site drew in $703,833 from 30,000 donors in all 50 states and more than 84 countries.

"I think people love rallying around a cause, especially helping someone in need or who has been abused or can't stand up for themselves," Sidorov said.

"It just shows there are so many great people in the world. It warms my heart."

Klein wants to donate some of her money to Mary Cariola Children's Center and School of the Holy Childhood, she told WHAM-TV in Rochester, NY.

Four bullies from the Greece, N.Y., Central School District outside Rochester have been suspended for one year and perform community service.

The bullies later apologized; Klein did not accept.

It was a one-time mistake. That's the line Kristen Stewart is hoping will keep Robert Pattinson from leaving her, although early indications don't bode very well for the future of Robsten.

But is that claim even valid? Did Stewart really just make out with Rupert Sanders for a few fleeting moments? Or was this affair far more drawn out and calculating?

Rupert Sanders likes what he sees at the premiere of Snow White and the Huntsman.

Relatives of the Snow White and the Huntsman director say it's the latter. They cite a photo of Sanders and Stewart in Berlin on May 15 as evidence, with Sanders' brother-in-law  telling People UK of the cheating:

"It was from the last half of filming and all through post-production, clear into last week.”

Norman Alden, a veteran character actor who starred in hundreds of TV shows, films and commercials over the years, has died at the age of 87.

His family told The Hollywood Reporter that Alden - who made an estimated 2,500 (!) appearances on camera - died of natural causes in L.A.

Frequently cast as a tough guy over his 50-year-career, Alden was also the voice of superhero Aquaman in the 1970s cartoon Super Friends.

He also appeared in Back to the Future (above) and Ed Wood.

Alden

Robert Alden's career spanned more than half a century.

He was in TV series such as Charlie's Angels, JAG and Batman, where he played one of the Joker's henchmen, and in AC Delco commercials.

In the mid 1970s, he starred in episodes of spoof TV soap Mary Hartman before his character Coach Leroy Fedders drowned in a bowl of soup.

On film, Alden also played Johnny Ringo in 1961's The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp, and voiced Sir Kay in Disney's The Sword in the Stone.

A pair of celebrity gossip tabloids apparently have their collective fingers on the pulse of all things Suri Cruise. It's like they're reading her every thought.

According to In Touch Weekly and Star Magazine, the youngster's thoughts on the recent bombshell Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce are quite clear:

Team Tom.

  • Suri Cover
  • Suri Cruise Cover

If you believe this (dis)reputable pair of magazines, Suri Cruise was won over by her dad during his recent get-together with her - a $170,000 getaway.

Possibly accompanied by Scientology chaperones, the lavish reunion clearly did the trick, with Suri allegedly pleading to be with Tom over Katie now.

Suri Cruise, mind you, is six years old.

Despite this fact - and that the two settled their divorce and custody pact already in a relatively amicable manner, we're supposed to believe this?

In (slightly) more comprehensible news, the stunning Yolanda Pecoraro is said to be in the running to be the next Mrs. Tom Cruise for a few years.

The cast of A&E's reality show Cajun Justice is dealing with a new sheriff in town ... one apparently bent on not having his team featured on a reality show.

The show follows Sheriff Vernon Bourgeois and his deputies as they fight crime in the swamps of Louisiana. Or at least it did until they got a new boss.

The Terrabone Sheriff's Dept. confirms that new sheriff Jerry Larpenter fired 24 people on DAY ONE ... including five of seven people featured on the show.

Cajun Justice

A sixth cast member quit to support his fellow comrades.

What's more, not only did the new Sheriff pink slip to most of the cast, but as of July 1, he banned A&E producers from following anyone in his department.

Probably wants to "focus on criminal justice" or some absurd notion.

It's unclear if A&E will nix the show completely or attempt find a new department to work with, but for better or worse, Larpenter's crew won't be on it.

Season 1 will finish as planned; beyond that, it's unclear.
