The Hills: New Beginnings: Brody Jenner reveals that mother Linda knew Thompson from father's transition
Brody Jenner revealed that his mother, Linda Thompson, & # 39; for decades & # 39; knew that his father switched during the Monday episode of The Hills: New Beginnings.
& # 39; My father and I never really had a great relationship & # 39 ;, says Brody , who was two when his parents divorced and 27 when he heard of the transition.
& # 39; With all the ups and downs my family has had, my mother has definitely been the rock and made sure that everyone comes together once or twice a month. & # 39;
Absent Father: Brody Jenner admitted that he had never had a strong relationship with his father Caitlyn Jenner during the Monday episode of The Hills: New Beginnings
His mother, 69, shared her memories of raising the boys with Caitlyn, 69, when they looked through photos with Brody & # 39; s wife Kaitlynn Carter, 30, and brother Brandon, 38.
& # 39; I was so happily married to Bruce Jenner, & # 39; Linda remembered. & # 39; I had this great normal life in this house in Malibu, until that fateful day … Bruce said to me: & # 39; I want to switch & # 39;. & # 39;
& # 39; The public was informed of Caitlyn a few years ago when she made her switch, but my mother has known for decades, & # 39; Brody confirmed in a confessional.
& # 39; My life has just done 180, & # 39; Linda remembered. & # 39; In my mind I had lost my normal life, my family, my fantastic husband whom I thought would be forever. I had just lost my marriage and the father of my children. I was broken. & # 39;

She was sympathetic to Caitlyn & # 39; s plight, but didn't give her the chance to be an absent father, she continued.
& # 39; I don't think there will ever be an excuse for not being there for your children, & # 39; said Linda.
As they sat around the table, family members reported that Caitlyn had failed to call the children for a number of birthdays and had canceled a week earlier at Brody & # 39; s wedding.
No pass: the actress and songwriter said they didn't pass Caitlyn & # 39; pass & # 39; because she was an absent father of her sons
& # 39; You just have to let it go, & # 39; Linda insisted. & # 39; You must forgive. & # 39;
& # 39; I didn't have my dad at the wedding … it was a bummer, & # 39; Brody admitted. & # 39; Honestly it really hurt. & # 39;
& # 39; I'd rather have had her there, but … she had better things to do. Apparently, & he said.
Feelings hurt: Brody admitted that he was wounded by Caitlyn who skipped his wedding
Brody & # 39; s former stepfather, 15-year-old Grammy winner David Foster, introduced him to another crowd.
Michael Jackson, Celine Dion and other artists were in and out of the house & # 39; every day, Brody explained.
Added to the fun, Mother Linda was a songwriter and wrote hits such as the Whitney Houston I Have Nothing song.
Show support: Linda attended a party to celebrate Brody's music video, but his father Caitlyn was noticeably absent
& # 39; Music has always been a big part of our lives & # 39 ;, Brody commented, now working as a DJ and musician with the band, AHZ.
His friends came out for the premiere for the new AHZ video, although Caitlyn was noticeably absent.
That was Brody & # 39; s very first best friend, Spencer Pratt, 35, with whom he had blown up a previous episode.

Spencer threw a completely different kind of party for 250 influencers on club Avenue in Los Angeles and launched Pratt Daddy Crystals, the company he runs together with wife Heidi Montag, 32.
Crystals had become their main source of income after he had inflated & # 39; $ 10 million in two years & # 39 ;, he said.
& # 39; In the past, money was just thrown at us, and we spent as much as we were making & # 39 ;, Heidi explained in a confession. & # 39; We had no more money. & # 39;

& # 39; I will not let that happen again to our family, & # 39; she swore.
Spencer admitted that they had thrown a lot of money in the meeting.
& # 39; I want you to feel like you are in a magical crystal cave of energy &, "he said, explaining the atmosphere.

His sister Stephanie, 33, even came to the party despite the fact that they were at war.
However, Brody was not invited.
Instead, he met his friend Brandon Lee for an early lunch.

Brody praised the 28-year-old when he said he was interested in pursuing a nice girl named Ashley.
& # 39; I think I learned from my parents & # 39 ;, said Brandon, the son of Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson, whom he & # 39; the two craziest people on earth & # 39; long called. & # 39;
He was interested in marriage, the actor added, but just wanted to get married once or twice, & not 39 times & # 39 ;.

Brody said Brandon's mother & # 39; hot & # 39; was, which Brandon admitted that he had made him angry as a teenager.
But both Brody and Brandon agreed that it was important to let female hangers benefit from it.
They talked about their fathers and said they made everything about themselves, which comes with becoming famous at a young age & # 39 ;, Brandon said.

& # 39; Your father was an Olympian, my father was a fucking rock star, & # 39; he remarked. & # 39; At some point your life is not like a normal life. It will be this big show for everyone. & # 39;
& # 39; It's always easier for me to have a teammate to experience everything, & # 39; Brandon added when he was later shopping with Ashley, noting that his parents were not really there.
Audrina Patridge, 34, continued to struggle while her divorce proceedings continued – and ex Justin & Justin Bobby & # 39; Brescia, 37, played with her affection.

She said he tried to kiss her at a recent concert, but he denied it.
& # 39; I literally gave her a friendly hug and kissed her on the cheek, & # 39; he said in a confessional.
Audrina & # 39; s friends had encouraged her to talk to him, although her friend Joey suggested that Justin slept with Stephanie.
& # 39; Justin and Stephanie are shady, period, & # 39; Joey claimed.

Mischa Barton, who was nearby, wondered what Joey meant.
She also said she re-examined her career after divorcing her mother-manager a few years ago.
Mischa recently booked an audition for a film with Kelsey Grammer.
