On His Struggle: “Me of all people, Bruce Jenner, has to deal with these issues.”

On Telling His Kids: “I’ve tried to explain it to them this way – God’s looking down making little Bruce, he’s looking down and he says what are we going to do with this one?”

We’d done 435 episodes I think over almost 8 years now and the entire run I kept thinking to myself, ‘oh my god.’ This whole thing, the one real true story in the family was the one I was hiding and nobody knew about it. The one thing that could make a difference in peoples lives was right here in my soul and I could not tell that story.”
