Before reading, please note we are deeply sensitive to Bruce’s desire to live his life as a woman, but for the sake of this article we’re using male pronouns.
In light of the interview airing, Linda Thompson, Bruce’s second wife and mother of Brandon and Brody Jenner has spoken-out about her marriage to Bruce and how they privately dealt with his desire to transition to a woman. Linda announces she never would have “dared” violated Bruce’s truth or his dignity by revealing his gender dysphoria before he did so himself.
Tonight was Bruce Jenner’s interview with Diane Sawyer. Bruce confirmed to the public for the first time that he is making the transition to a woman and gave a lot of background and insight into his past and explained things in the best way he could to try to help others understand what he’s been going through and what he hopes for his future. He also shared who is taking the change the hardest and who is the most accepting.
Bruce starts out very emotional and nervous from the get-go. “It’s going to be an emotional roller-coaster but somehow I’ll get through it.” He gets teary and says “Let’s do it” and shares that “it’s going to be tough, but I’ve been waiting for this day forever and what I should do with my life. How do I tell my story. How do I tell people what I’ve been through? And that day is today.” As he cries, he tries to lighten things up and tells Diane that they have to keep their sense of humor about this.
After years of speculation about his changing appearance, along with a tumultuous year, Bruce Jenner is finally speaking out about what the future holds for him and his planned gender transition. In an intimate and revealing 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer, Bruce, a father of 6 and step-father of 4, will reportedly open up about navigating his new life as a woman, his concerns, and if he feels at peace.
TMZ reports: “Kris Jenner was in the dark about Bruce’s desire to become a woman during their entire marriage according to sources directly and closely connected to Kris.” These sources also add that “Kris insists the subject never came up again during their entire marriage. She also says she never saw Bruce dressed as a woman during their entire relationship.”
We start off with Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian wrapping up Kim’s surgery and it appears everything went well! Full steam ahead baby-making in bathrooms with Kanye West again. Yay.
Kris is at an indoor go-cart racetrack with Khloe and Scott Disick. Kris explains that she tries to spend one-on-one time with the kids and hasn’t seen Kylie in a few weeks. What? Where is she living? Isn’t she like 15? Is that legal?
Apparently immediately following a fatal car accident is a great time to for the Jenner family! Brody Jenner spoke out on how everyone is doing, talked his new show on E!, and put a stop to those engagement rumors!
Brody, the sometimes Keeping Up With The Kardashians star didn’t touch on his half-siblings, but as for his life and his brother Brandon Jenner, who is expecting his first child with wife Leah, things are “great!” like totally great in every way possible. Things are also, apparently, really great for Bruce Jenner, who may or may not be transitioning to a woman at some point, and just caused a massive car accident he may or may not be sued over. However – Bruce is free from Kris, so that probably does qualify as “great!”
Inconsequential details! “Everybody’s very happy. Everybody’s living life. And it’s a great time for all of us,” exclaimed Brody, without going into details.
We begin this week’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians with Scott Disick accidentally walking in on Kris Jenner in her closet while she is getting dressed. She spazzes and screams at him to get out of her space! Scott immediately runs downstairs to tell Kourtney Kardashian and Kim Kardashian that he did not intentionally try to creep on their mom and Kris whirls into the kitchen freaking out about wanting to have some private space as she flashes everyone her S&M bra under her robe. First of all ew, but also somewhat impressed as she looks good for a woman her age trying to pretend she’s 30.
Later on, Kourtney is in the kitchen with Khloe Kardashian and Khloe mentions that she thinks Scott is up to a shady business deal as all these multiple exotic cars are popping up in the driveway and there are about 10 different license plates strewn upon the counter. Like what is he up to? He could very well have a legitimate biz going on and while I don’t blame him for attempting to expand his skills of profiting outside the realms of reality TV, I highly doubt he’s doing anything resembling a la Guidice to make a buck. We’ll see what he’s up to later on.
This post came after aKeeping Up with the Kardashians scene aired in which Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian discuss Rob’s very public problems. Kim commented that Rob just needed to “get out of his funk.” Us Weekly reports an insider saying Rob basically feels Kim is two-faced. “His post was about how she seems caring in public, but he feels ignored,” says the source.
