(Newser) – No one was expecting Kris Jenner's new talk show to get good reviews ... no one except Kris Jenner, apparently. A few hours after Linda Stasi wrote a particularly scathing take on the show in the New York Post (it's "soul-sucking," and Jenner "comes across as a spoiled, vacuous woman with nothing to say of any interest, importance, or humor"), Jenner sent Stasi a dozen Magnolia cupcakes, a $325 Tiffany silver pen, and a note explaining that perhaps Stasi could use the pen to write a nicer review next time around. Instead, Stasi used it to tell the world (or at least her Post readers) all about the "bribe." Click to see a picture of the pen and note. (Read more Kris Jenner stories.)
