Kris Jenner and the rest of the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” cast members did not have a participation in Bruce Jenner’s “coming out” interview with Diane Sawyer on April 24.
The reason? The momager will reportedly bank on her ex-husband’s gender transition in the new “KUWTK” episode.
E! will reportedly release a two-part special which will revolve around the former Olympian.
According to the network, the new “KUWTK” episode “will reveal intimate conversations that Bruce had with his famous family, in which they discussed his transition.” “The specials will also explore each family member’s struggle to process his or her own feelings as they all work through hearing from Bruce directly about finally living life as the person he has always known himself to be,” read the network’s press release.
On Monday, the network released a clip showing Kris Jenner crying over the news.
It appears that the family matriarch is having difficulty coping with the fact that the man she once loved is no longer a male.
“I have these memories of this life and I feel sometimes like it didn’t exist,” said the former talk show host.
She was being comforted by her daughter Kim Kardashian.
For the 34-year-old reality actress, it’s best to just accept Bruce Jenner’s sex change.
“He has to deal with this for his entire life, of waking up and feeling like, ‘Whoa, this isn’t my body.
This doesn’t feel comfortable,'” she said.
“That’s the only way I can kind of imagine it.
And you really have to let go.” During his interview with Sawyer, Bruce Jenner said that he has “the soul of a female.” His daughters Kendall and Kylie previously said that they would support their father’s decision to change his physical self.
The new “KUWTK” episodes will air on May 17 and May 18 at 9 p.m.
Meanwhile, Bruce Jenner’s eight-episode docuseries will air on July 26.
The show will shed light on his decision to become a transgender woman.
Entertainment Weekly previously reported that Jenner was very involved in editing the series because of his excitement to share his journey with viewers.
