Kim Kardashian said Tuesday that the special episodes of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce” are expected to help other families deal with a similar situation. Kardashian made the comments during the "Selfish" book signing at the Barnes & Noble book store in New York City.
"It was important for him to capture these moments so that people can understand—first of all, our special is more about our emotions and you see Bruce telling some of us for the first time and every family member has a different reaction," Kardashian told E! News, adding: "We all love and support him no matter what, but it is a hard adjustment. And I think its really informative for other families who are going through this. I think people will learn a lot and understand its OK to have every emotion, and at the end of the day, I don't know if you'd say 'normal family' but we're a family that goes through so much.”
Kardashian's remarks follow revelations by her father Bruce Jenner last month that he feels more of a woman than a man in an interview with Diane Sawyer. The special series “About Bruce” will also show Kim, her mother Kris, sisters Khloe and Kourtney, and her half-sisters Kendall and Kylie, dealing with Bruce’s transition. Meanwhile, Bruce will also be seen discussing his transition in an untitled docuseries by E!, the first episode of which will be aired on July 26.
"We just support each other through everything, but there is a learning curve, there is an adjustment period. And, at this moment when we were filming, it was a period of time when it was first starting to happen and it was really raw and real for us, so some family members have a harder time and you just see our journey. We just filmed it to help other families going through what we're going through," Kim told E!
The first part of the special series of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” will be premiered on Sunday, May 17, at 9:00 p.m. and the second part will air the next day, May 18, at the same time.
