Hollywood is rallying behind Bruce Jenner who confirmed during an interview with Diane Sawyer that “for all intents and purposes, I’m a woman.”
During Friday night’s Race to Erase MS event, HipHollywood caught up with several celebrities who praised Jenner for sharing his journey on national television.
“Groundbreaking for someone of his ilk. A decathlon champion, somebody who’s been living life in the public life … we have to live our life with acceptance, not tolerance,” The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Lisa Vanderpump told us. “He should be celebrated not criticized because there is too many people struggling, there’s a high rate of suicide.”
The LGBT supporter continued, “It’s time for America and the world to understand, people don’t choose this path. They are born this way.”
Pooch Hall also chimed in, telling HipHollywood, “To each it’s own. Happiness is the key to ones life and success and if that’s what makes him happy and as long as his family supports him, rock on Bruce … I support that man and I wish him and his family well.”
“I think we have to have love and compassion for each other and let people be who they are,” Carmen Electra told HipHollywood. “You only live once and if you have your health you should be able to be who you are if you’re a good person and not hurting anyone.”
Electra went not to say that it is very brave for Bruce to speak up. “That’s huge,” she explained.

Exclusive Details: Trey Songz Arrested For Domestic Violence + Singer’s Public Response
HipHollywood can confirm that singer, Trey Songz, was arrested on Monday morning on domestic violence charges.
The Los Angeles Police Department tells us that Tremaine Neverson, the r&b crooner’s legal name, was taken into custody around 6:30am. The arrest stemmed from an alleged violent incident on February 18.
We are told the singer was let out on bail, which was set at $50k.
After being released, Songz took to Instagram to respond to the arrest, writing on Twitter:
“For weeks my lawyers & Mgmt have asked me not to comment on this and I initially agreed but this morning I feel that my fam, the women that raised me, my friends & fans especially the youth need to hear from me. I am being lied on and falsely accused for someone’s personal gain”
He added, “I won’t be speaking too much more on this but would like to thank you for all the prayers and support.”
The singer was also clearly unbothered by the arrest because he went as far as to share a string of stories on Instagram, which included him raving about the beautiful day and blasting music throughout his home.
As previously reported, during All Star Weekend, a woman claimed Songz unleashed fury during a Hollywood Hills party after he spotted her talking to another man.
Following the incident, the woman went to the hospital where she was treated before calling police.
The alleged victim’s lawyer, famous women’s rights attorney Lisa Bloom, even took to Instagram earlier this month to ask for any witnesses. “Went with my client today for her second police interview re her allegations that Trey Songz choked and punched her earlier this month,” Bloom tweeted. “Many were present. We need just one to have a conscience and step forward as a witness.”
