The first official promo for Bruce Jenner’s tell-all interview with Diane Sawyer is finally here. Unfortunately, the 15-second video leaves plenty to the imagination. The clip shows nothing more than several different shots of the former Olympian’s face and hair as he sits across from Sawyer. Little is revealed about what will be discussed during the interview, but the voiceover suggests viewers will get further insight into the 65-year-old’s reported plans to transition from male to female.
Rumors have been circulating about the interview for some time. Some sources believe Jenner will discuss the hormone therapy he is believed to be undergoing, the alleged cosmetic surgery he’s had done, as well as his family’s reaction to his shocking revelation. Other outlets have reported the sit-down will serve as a lead-in to Jenner’s rumored spin-off series on the E! network. The network is home to his family's hit reality series, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."
According to reports, the show, which was believed to be in production, will follow Jenner from the early stages of his transition through his final gender reassignment surgery. According to TMZ, Jenner halted production on the series after worrying that it was putting his family in jeopardy. He reportedly refused to move forward with the show until he was sure his entire family was on board.
That may be sooner than expected as Us Weekly’s sources report that Jenner now has the full support of all of his children and stepchildren. Although his kids may be willing to accept Bruce’s new identity, Radar Online reports there is one family member who is struggling with his decision. The site reports that the transition has been difficult for Bruce’s ex-wife, Kris Jenner. According to her sister, Karen Houghton, the entire experience has been “humiliating for her.” She has, however, slowly started coming to terms with it. The 59-year-old reportedly told her youngest children, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, that she supports Bruce no matter what.
“Bruce Jenner: The Interview” will air Friday, April 24, at 9 p.m. EDT on ABC.
