Kardashian Christmas Card Excludes Bruce Jenner's Four Children

The Kardashians released their over-the-top Christmas card this week -- with Kris Jenner in sequins, Kim in a tuxedo and baby Mason stealing the show. But cheesy holiday sweaters weren't the only element missing from the family portrait: nowhere to be found were Bruce's four children from previous marriages.

"You never see Bruce's first son, Burton William 'Burt' Jenner, and daughter, Cassandra Lynn 'Casey' Jenner, but I thought sons Brandon Thompson and Brody Jenner would have been on the card," a friend of the family told me. "Brody is very close with Kim and her sisters and has even been on her reality show."

Bruce's two daughters with Kris, Kendall and Kylie, made the cut, but that, no doubt, is because they're riding the Kardashian wave for all it's worth.

"The holiday card is more of a marketing tool the family sends to friends and members of the press," an insider told me. "If Bruce's four other children were part of the reality family, they would be on it too. But don't feel bad for them. ... They are happy to remain behind the scenes."
