Bruce Jenner: E! to air two-part 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' special about transition
Bruce Jenner opened up to Diane Sawyer about transitioning to become a woman in a two-hour taped interview that aired on ABC April 24. Now, E! will share Jenner’s story in a two-part Keeping Up With the Kardashians special, the Today Show announced Monday.
Keeping Up With the Kardashians: About Bruce, will “reveal intimate conversations that Bruce had with his famous family, in which they discussed his transition,” according to E!. In the 20/20 interview, Jenner admitted stepdaughter Kim Kardashian was one of the first people to learn about his transition after she caught him dressing as a woman. “It was like this big secret in the family,” Jenner told Sawyer, “and we never talked about it again.”
The specials will also include home video footage of the family, as well as each family member’s process of coming to terms with Jenner’s choice. At this time, Jenner prefers to be referred to as “Bruce,” and with male pronouns.
E! will show Part One on Sunday, May 17, and Part Two on Monday, May 18. Jenner is also working with the network on a docuseries, planned to air this summer.
