Bruce Jenner has been “overwhelmed” by the “love and acceptance” he’s received from Kris Jenner after telling his soon-to-be ex-wife that he is transgender. But, as a new preview clip from Keeping Up With the Kardashians: About Bruce shows, Kris needed time to process what this means for their family.
In the teaser video, taped earlier this year, Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner discuss Bruce’s upcoming interview with Diane Sawyer. “He’s going to tell his first story,” Kim tells her sisters. “At first I was like, ‘I’m totally going to cry! I’m totally going to cry!’ My throat was literally burning.”
Kendall admitted she could relate to that feeling.
Kim clarified that she got emotional just “talking” to Bruce about the interview. “I was thinking, ‘Mom this is really hard for her.’ It’s so sad. She cries all the time and it makes me really sad,” Kim said as she began to cry herself. “We should really appreciate all the things she does for us, because she does a lot.”
Of course, Kris eventually came around and was able to embrace Bruce for who he is. In a previously released clip from E!’s two-part special, Bruce said, “Kris is a really good woman and I love her to death.”
(At this time, Bruce is choosing to not live publicly in the media as a woman and will be referred to with male pronouns until he specifies otherwise.)
During Bruce’s interview with Diane, which aired Apr. 24, he admitted to being terrified of telling his kids about his transition. “Those are the ones I’m concerned with,” Bruce said. “I can’t let myself hurt them.” Kim had been “the most accepting,” particularly after her husband Kanye West provided some perspective. Meanwhile, Brandon Jenner said he was “more proud than ever to be a part of the family.”
