Did You Watch Bruce Jenner: The Interview? Team Curtains Recap Team Curtains April 27, 2015 Just several days ago, former athlete turned reality star Bruce Jenner gave what was to be the most revealing interview of his entire career. The interview was exclusively conducted by Diane Sawyer, famous for her 20/20 specials (Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Rihanna) shown on ABC network. The man once hailed the greatest athlete in world said “For all intents and purposes, I’m a woman.” Across the two-hour special, the 65-year old revealed his internal struggles. He stated that this is something he has battled with since childhood and that he feels that he was given the soul of a woman. When asked about how his 10 children took the news, it seems that each of them had a very different reaction. Whilst his son- Brandon- was extremely supportive, it seems that his step-daughter Khloe Kardashian has had some trouble adjusting. Jenner feels this may be to do with ‘losing’ another male role model after the death of her father- Robert Kardashian- and the separation from her husband, basketball player Lamar Odom. The somewhat surprising news came when Bruce stated how well his step-daughter Kimberly took the news. Kim Kardashian is reported to have said “Girl, you gotta rock it baby. You gotta look good! If you’re doing this thing, I’m helping you. You’re representing the family. You gotta look really good.” But this wasn’t until her husband, rapper Kanye West spoke with Kim, stating “Look, I can be married to the most beautiful woman in the world, and I am. I can have the most beautiful little daughter in the world, and I have that. But I’m nothing if I can’t be me. If I can’t be true to myself, they don’t mean anything.” The words seemed to resonate with Kim and ever since, she has been Bruce’s rock. The athlete who has been married three times has full support from his ex-wives. Unfortunately, not everyone responded to the situation with as much courtesy as Kimye (Kim and Kanye). Kim’s ex husband Kris Humphries conveniently tweeted during the interview: Man, I'm glad I got out when I did. #Gottadoyou — Kris Humphries (@KrisHumphries) April 25, 2015 After the backlash received, Humphries was quick to apologise hours later to say. I have and always will support Bruce hence #Gottadoyou. Now recognize I was too vague and sincerely apologize for the way this came across. — Kris Humphries (@KrisHumphries) April 25, 2015 #FullySupportBruce — Kris Humphries (@KrisHumphries) April 25, 2015 Quickly stating that his tweet was misunderstood, and that he fully supports the Jenner. Bruce’s biological daughter Kylie Jenner was not convinced and took to her Twitter to tweet in defense of her father. I don't have the time for people who bring and create so much negativity in their life. I can only pray for them ! — Kylie Jenner (@KylieJenner) April 25, 2015 There's bigger things than that!!! Spread love! We are all battling something. — Kylie Jenner (@KylieJenner) April 25, 2015 So, what does the future hold for Bruce? He says the interview will be the last time the world will ever see ‘Bruce Jenner.’ After that, he will finally become ‘her,’ his true self. He even has his closet lined up and ready for when the day arrives! The most controversial discussion point was where Jenner stated “I’m not gay.” Which many find hard to understand. Throughout the show, ABC educated viewers with topic facts, here are a few we found most insightful: 87% of people know someone who is gay, only 8% know someone who is transgender. #BruceJennerABC — 20/20 (@ABC2020) April 25, 2015 Gender Dysphoria: A medical term to describe distress caused by conflict btw a person’s gender identity & the sex assigned at birth. — 20/20 (@ABC2020) April 25, 2015 “Genitals don’t equal gender.” Dr. Johanna Olson, who joins us after the show to answer your questions. #BruceJennerABC — 20/20 (@ABC2020) April 25, 2015 Bruce Jenner asks people to “have an open mind and heart.” #BruceJennerABC — 20/20 (@ABC2020) April 25, 2015 At the very end of the 2 hour special, Jenner showed Diane the beautiful black dress that he says he wants to wear the next time he sees her. Jenner has said he feels most excited by the simple things such as wearing nail polish long enough to see it chip. We look forward to seeing the true Bruce Jenner when he finally reveals ‘her’ with a new name and appearance. What were your thoughts on the Bruce Jenner’s big reveal?
