After Bruce Jenner admitted that he is
transgender to Diane Sawyer in an interview, his
estranged wife, Kris Jenner is finding it hard to accept
the truth. Although the news of his transitioning was doing the
rounds for about a year since their separation, Bruce's interview
has broken the family.
A new clip from an upcoming E! special, Keeping Up With the
Kardashians: About Bruce shows Kris Jenner breaking down into
tears over the news. Last month, Bruce told the world, "For all
intents and purposes, I am a woman."
E! will air a two-part special, Keeping Up With the
Kardashians: About Bruce and a clip shows Kim
Kardashian talking to her mother, Kris Jenner about it. While
talking to daughter Kim, Kris is in tears and says on the
Olympian's transition, "I have these memories of this life, and I
feel sometimes like it didn't exist."
However, Kim tries to explain her mother, "He has to deal with
this for his entire life of waking up and feeling like 'whoa, this
isn't my body. This doesn't feel comfortable.'"
(At this time, Bruce Jenner is choosing to not live publicly in
the media as a woman and will be referred to as Bruce Jenner and
with male pronouns until he specifies otherwise.)
In addition to this special, E! will also air an eight-episode
documentary series chronicling Bruce's new life as a transgender
woman. Part One premieres Sunday, May 17, at 9:00 p.m. Part Two
follows Monday, May 18, at 9:00 p.m.
