When the story broke, Jenner was ostracized on social media for her overweening self-importance. Curiously no apology was immediately forthcoming.
Alba, meanwhile, appeared on “Watch What Happens Live,” with host Andy Cohen and the subject invariably came up.
“I was really shocked,” the 34-year-old actress said. “I got body checked!”
“And it was, like, by two of them. I thought there was a fire. I guess someone was just leaving the building. Yeah, I don’t know, it was just real shocking,” she added.
Jessica was nothing, if not gracious. When asked if she received an apology, she replied that Kylie likely didn’t even know it happened. Nothing like damning someone with faint praise.
Afterward, the silence continued… until Friday (Sept 18).
Jessica revealed that she received flowers from Kylie. “Wow! Came home to the most beautiful flower tree I’ve ever seen,” she wrote with a photo of the bouquet on Instagram.
“Thank you @kyliejenner you are a sweetheart!! So thoughtful,” she added, again killing Kylie with kindness.
Oddly, Kylie, who is prone to over-disclosure like half-sisters, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, has maintained total radio silence on the incident.
Clearly, she’s been huddling with some high-priced crisis management public relations types. They must have told her to make a peace offering and move on. Talking about it would only give it another spin in the news cycle.
Hopefully young Kylie learned an important lesson. Celebrity can bring many benefits, but let your self-importance go to your head and it can bite you in the ass.
