The Kardashians

Brody Jenner

For the latest news on the newest star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Brody Jenner, you've come to the right place!

Brody Jenner is known for more than just being the ex-boyfriend of Avril Lavigne . He has an impressive, if complicated, family tree in his own right, as the son of Bruce Jenner — a legendary Olympian — and Bruce's second wife Linda Thompson — a beauty queen, actress and lyricist who once dated Elvis Presley. Brody’s parents divorced when he was young — Linda remarried Grammy-winning composer David Thompson and Bruce remarried Kris Jenner, which made Brody and brother Brandon stepbrothers to Rob, Khloe, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian, and half-brothers to Kendall and Kylie Jenner.

Given his famous relatives, it’s no big shocker that Brody isn’t a stranger to reality TV. He kicked off with career with the 2005 show The Princes of Malibu, which focused on his luxurious lifestyle, permissive mother, and rich stepdad David — who considered Brody, his brother, and his pal Spencer Pratt freeloaders. Sadly, Princes of Malibu wasn’t Brody’s claim to fame. Six episodes were filmed, but only two ever aired.

Brody made cameo appearances on the Kardashians’ shows, of course, but Brody’s next starring role was in Bromance, where “Guys compete in a series of challenges that test the limits of male bonding for a chance to become part of a reality star's entourage.” That reality star was Brody Jenner.

Next came The Hills, the successful spin-off of MTV hit Laguna Beach, which was good for both his rising star and his love life: He dated co-stars Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari. He has also had relationships with Nicole Richie, Lindsay Lohan, model Cora Skinner and Playboy's Playmate of the Year, Jayde Nicole. And, from 2010 until early 2012, Brody was also linked to pop-punk singer Avril Lavigne.

And what does Brody do, when not appearing on reality shows and dating beautiful women? He has also modeled for Guess clothing, Agent Provocateur underwear, OP, and Cosmogirl Magazine.

What will Brody get up to, now that he has signed up for a full-time gig on the eighth season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians? Romance? Bromance? We’ll all have to wait and see!
