After Bruce Jenner told ABC’s Diane Sawyer about his transition to being female, his fans from all over the world reacted with varying degrees of shock, acceptance and support. While there were also some negative reactions, the only thing that mattered to Jenner were the reactions from his family. The ABC interview included four of his older children and his two ex-wives. Next, the E! network will air a two-part special focusing on how Jenner broke the news to his family -- and how they are all coping.
The official trailer of the upcoming special has been released. The show will be titled “Keeping Up With the Kardashians: About Bruce.” It will air as special episodes of the family’s reality show, which is in its 10th season.
The video opens up with some family videos of Jenner enjoying time with his biological kids Kendall and Kylie Jenner -- as well as stepchildren Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob Kardashian. The show aims to show how Jenner lived his life as a father despite his gender identity issues.
In the clip, wife Kris Jenner can be heard talking about how she first met Jenner and how it was love at first sight. The pair were married 23 years before filing for divorce last year. Kris was previously seen crying in a clip from the special while talking about her confusion about Jenner's revelation.
His daughters can be heard speaking over clips from their home videos, talking about their feelings. A voice, which seems to be Kourtney's, says that Jenner is scared to hurt them. Another one talks about wanting to meet “her,” referring to the female version of their father. A very tearful Kendall says that she doesn’t like it “when people say that Bruce is gonna be gone.”
“I’m not going anywhere,” Jenner says in response. He then talks about how scared he was when he had to tell his kids about his secret. The video ends with Jenner hugging a tearful Kendall Jenner and Khloe Kardashian. In a previous interview, Kim shared that the moment Jenner tells some of the members of the family was documented on the show.
Despite all of them having expressed support through social media and numerous interviews after the Diane Sawyer special, there is still so much more to say. “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” executive producer Ryan Seacrest talks about how compelling the special will be.
Part 1 of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians: About Bruce” will air at 9 p.m. May 17 on E! Part 2 will air at the same time May 18.
