ABC has released a second clip promoting the highly anticipated sit-down between Bruce Jenner and Diane Sawyer. Unlike the previous clip, this quick tease features a slightly clearer shot of the former Olympian’s face, as well as a brief quote.
"My whole life has been getting me ready for this," Jenner says in the 15 second video. The 65 year old has yet to officially confirm rumors that he is transitioning from male to female.
According to People, Jenner wants this interview to positively impact the people of the LGBT community. He hopes speaking out will “bring awareness to this issue in order to help others,” according to sources, and “wants this to be taken seriously.”
The network has kept tight-lipped about the topics that will be discussed, but according to a press release, “Bruce Jenner: The Interview” will be both “far-ranging and exclusive.” TMZ previously reported that the 65-year-old will likely discuss the hormone therapy and plastic surgery he has undergone thus far. The site also speculates there will be some discussion of his famous family’s handling of his announcement. It was also believed this exclusive interview, which is the first he’s done since rumors of his changing gender began circulating, will serve as a lead-in to a spin-off series documenting all aspects of his transition, including his final gender reassignment surgery.
The show, which is rumored to be premiering on E!, has been put on hold according to TMZ. Jenner halted production, saying he did’t want to move forward with the show until his entire family was on board. Although none of his 10 children, both biological and step children, have spoken out about this process, People claims he has their full support, so it is likely the show will be back underway before long. It was initially rumored to be airing this May, though neither the network nor Jenner have confirmed.
“Bruce Jenner: The Interview” premieres April 24 at 9 p.m. EDT on ABC.
