Gossip: Kris Jenner Writing Revenge Memoir About Caitlyn; Ryan Seacrest Mad at Katy Perry’s $25 Million ‘American Idol’ Check

Kris Jenner is writing a “revenge memoir” about her ex-husband, Caitlyn, reports OK!

The magazine says she’s “outraged” over Caitlyn’s book, The Secrets Of My Life, and is now “writing her own memoir” about how the former Olympian was an “absentee dad” and “distant husband.”

Ryan Seacrest Is Reportedly Mad at Katy Perry’s $25 Million ‘American Idol’ Check — He Was Initially Offered Just $10 Million

Ryan Seacrest isn’t happy with how much he was initially offered to return as a host on ABC’s ‘American Idol’ — and Katy Perry’s to blame.

Seacrest, who hosted the show on Fox for 15 seasons, was set to emcee the reboot until Perry — said to be getting $25 million as an “Idol” judge — bragged last week on 103.5 KTU: “I’m really proud that, as a woman, I got paid. And you know why? I got paid, like, more than like pretty much any guy that’s been on that show.”

Sources say ABC initially offered Seacrest over $10 million.

“[He] was suddenly asking himself why he would come back for a 16th season at a salary [much smaller than that] of the newcomer judge,” Richard Rushfield, author of “American Idol: The Untold Story,” wrote in his e-mail newsletter, the Ankler.

Since Seacrest is already employed in New York at “Live With Kelly & Ryan,” and “Idol” would require weekly cross-country trips to LA, he “has grown notably cooler on the prospect,” Rushfield reported.

An ABC spokesman told me: “We don’t comment on negotiations or salary.”

“Ryan isn’t pleased with the protracted negotiations,” a source familiar with the talks said. “But he is hopeful that a deal can be reached given his affection for the show.”
