Caitlyn Jenner Reveals Kim Kardashian & Kris Jenner REFUSE To Talk To Her
Bruce Jenner to Kim Kardashian: "I Can't Die and Not Experience Her"
Tonight E! aired part one of two episodes ofKeeping Up With the Kardashians, "About Bruce," that deals with Bruce Jenner's transition and his family's coping with that change.
Before the emotional special, which saw every member of the Kardashian clan in tears, the following preface ran across the screen:
"In these family specials, we captured a specific moment in time, many months ago as our family had intimate and emotional conversations about my decision to live publicly as the woman that I've always been on the inside. Families of trans people often feel like they need to grieve the loss of the person that they thought they knew. My family's feelings are included here in the hope that other families will know that they are not alone, and to show that families move on from this grief. "Today my family loves, supports, and accepts me as I am–and I am so grateful." - Bruce Jenner
The statement serves to contextualize some of the sadness and anger Khloe, Kim, Kourtney, Kendall, Kylie, and matriarch Kris exhibit throughout the special. When Khloe asks Bruce directly, "You need to tell us, when is Bruce going to be gone?" he responds "Probably in the spring." Khloe, who receives this news along with Kendall, is both upset and angry. "Dealing with something like this is like dealing with a death in the family," Bruce acknowledges. "It's a tough transition for the people around you."
Perhaps the most poignant and revealing exchange happens between Kim and Bruce.
"It's tough not to have secrets," Bruce tells Kim after she implores him to keep the family "in the loop." "I've had secrets all my life," he says, and then, as if to prove it, kicks off a slipper to reveal a perfectly pink pedicured foot. Kim is impressed. "I'm shocked...Your feet are actually way more feminine than I ever could have imagined." she says. "They come out pretty good," Bruce replies. "And I do it all myself. Actually I do very good in the makeup dept. I could do your makeup. I could do it all baby."
It's then that Kim asks point blank: "Are you going to fully be come a woman? Because you haven't told me that." "Yes, I see myself in the future that way...it's probably happening this year. A few more little tweaks in the face [first]."
"I pushed the her side off all my life, I can't die and not experience her," Bruce later confides to the camera.
And in a sweet moment between Kim and Kris, Kim tries to help her mom "wrap her head" around the news. "I know this is the dumbest comparison, but it's like, a slight sliver of how he must feel. When I was pregnant I did not feel like I was in my body. I felt like who is this rolly poly? I couldn't get out of bed. I couldn't wipe myself. And that was for less than a year. And he has to deal like this his entire life."
Kim Kardashian has her fare share of haters. But it's hard to find fault here: She's compassionate, understanding, and a model sister and daughter.
