Kim Kardashian On Bruce Jenner Kardashians Special: “Our Goal Is To Help Others Going Through This” (VIDEO)
As Gossip Cop reported, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce” was filmed during and after Jenner came out to his family as transgender and revealed he identified as a woman earlier this year. The footage will be aired as part of a two-night “KUWTK” airing on May 18 and May 19. Teaser clips have showcased both Kris Jenner and Kendall Jenner crying over Bruce’s confession, as well as Kim bonding with her stepfather about makeup and nail polish.
Kim tells “Entertainment Tonight,” “Our goal in sharing this is just to help other families going through with this. It’s not an easy transition, but we are so happy that he can live his life the way he wants to.” Bruce has said Kim has been the most “accepting” of his journey, something she is now clarifying. “You know, I think that everyone handles it differently, and just because I am super-supportive doesn’t mean that I haven’t felt every emotion possible like all my sisters,” she says.
And in a separate interview with “Extra,” Kim says, “There is a whole deeper side to this that we really, and Bruce especially, want to help inform other family members that are going through this [and show] that you can get through this. There might be some struggles, there might be different emotions. Every family member has a different reaction, but we filmed this at a time months ago when it was so raw, and Bruce was making this decision and we were helping him get through it, but he was helping us get through it. Our goal is just to help other families get through something similar, to really support each other, come together, [and to know] that they’re not alone.”
Kim further says Bruce “can feel the love and he can feel the support, and that makes him so happy” in the wake of going public last month. She also notes that she plans to “hook him up with designers” and find him a “glam team.” Watch both interviews below.
