On Sunday and Monday, the E! network will air a two-part special titled “Keeping Up Wth the Kardashians: About Bruce.” Family matriarch Kris Jenner tells E! News about the reason behind the special, why the shows will be special for their fans, and what viewers can expect.
Much has been said in recent weeks about Bruce Jenner and his transition into a woman. The former Olympian’s ex-wives and his children have all expressed their support via social media and various interviews, so why the need for another documentary -- especially after Bruce's recent interview on ABC with Diane Sawyer? Kris Jenner thinks that these two new shows will be something special for fans of the Kardashian-Jenner family.
“The people that have been watching our show for so many years and have been invested in our family can really see what the kids and I went through with Bruce,” she told E! News.
Bruce Jenner has been an integral part of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” since the series first invaded the living rooms of families in America and subsequently all over the world. Fans of the show have been privy to intimate family moments and daily interactions between Bruce, his children and Kris. Even the announcement of the couple’s separation was included in the show. Bruce’s roles as a husband, father and later a grandfather were closely documented for the fans to see. The two-part special will dive deeper into that history, with several minutes of private home videos that were shot long before the first episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” aired.
Kris also says that the show could offer comfort and hope to someone else who might be going through the same kind of gender identity crisis as Bruce. Khloe Kardashian, one of Bruce’s stepchildren, describes the special episodes as rough and raw. The scenes feature what was happening during the critical moments when Bruce decided to open up to his family.
Khloe also speaks about the family's reactions that were captured on camera in real time as things were unfolding in front of all of them. Kris agrees and talks about a clip from the show where she was seen crying and questioning the past 25 years of her life, which she spent with Bruce. She says that these episodes will be very different from what fans are used to, and that some of the new footage is unedited -- in order to better convey the raw emotions of the moment.
“Keeping Up With the Kardashians: About Bruce” is a two-part special that will air at 9 p.m. EDT Sunday and Monday on E!.
