Bruce Jenner’s transition has apparently captivated the world. The former Olympian is reportedly transitioning from male to female and we’ve got the latest scoop surrounding his decision. Here are ten things to know about Bruce Jenner’s transition into a woman.
1. He put his reality docu-series on hold
There are numerous reports floating around the internet that Bruce Jenner’s reality TV docu-series has been placed on hold. The reason behind the delay is because he wants his children to get used to the idea of their father going through such a dramatic change. He is 65-years-old and he wants to be sure that his kids can handle his change psychologically. It’s a big undertaking and he doesn’t want to push them for the sake of a May air date.
2. His Diane Sawyer interview will go ahead
Bruce Jenner has already sat down with Diane Sawyer for an in-depth look at what his life will look like following his gender reassignment surgery. Despite all of the delays surrounding his new television show, we’ve learned that his Diane Sawyer interview will still air following the end of the tenth season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
3. He has yet to reveal his female name
A lot of rumors have made the rounds about what Bruce Jenner’s name will be once he makes the full transformation to a woman. Some have said that his name will be Agnes, while others have said that his name will be Belinda. Nevertheless, the former Olympian has yet to reveal if he will change his name at all. If he doesn’t use the name Jenn Brucer, we know a lot of people will be sadly disappointed.
4. He will still be a part of KUWTK
Despite venturing forth to take on his own show, Bruce Jenner has already been taped for the tenth season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and it doesn’t sound like his new show will deter him from that. KUWTK executive producer Jeff Jenkins said, “You will see Bruce on season ten. Beyond that there is, to my knowledge, no series in production that, as we said, is its own series. That’s really the current situation. As of right now, there’s no ‘Keeping Up With Bruce Jenner.'”
5. He’s working through his grief surrounding the accident
Jenner was recently involved in a car accident that claimed the life of one of the drivers involved. Sources have revealed that Jenner wants to take a step back and deal with the emotional toll that the accident has taken on him. It was revealed that authorities were sure that he was the cause of the accident and he is taking time to deal with his grief.
6. He worries that the Kardashians and Jenners are being split into two camps
In the season ten preview video for Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the Kardashian and Jenner siblings are somewhat separated, causing some concern from the former Olympian. When the news was revealed that he was changing from male to female, the Kardashian and Jenner girls all gathered around him in a show of solidarity. Let’s hope that they all still feel the same following his surgery.
7. The separate show may not air at all
Sources close to Jenner’s camp say that a reality television show documenting Bruce’s supposed transition may not happen at all. Jenner’s rep denies that a show is in the works. A source close to production told TMZ, “There’s a 99.9 percent chance the docu-series will happen.”
Despite that, his rep said, “Can’t put a series on hold that has yet to be confirmed as even happening in the first place.”
8. Sex change surgery reportedly scheduled for this summer
Bruce Jenner’s sex change surgery is said to be taking place this summer, according to a new report. He put the filming on hold, but he doesn’t want to keep his life on hold any longer than he already has. A source close to Jenner said, “The therapy was required by the doctor that will be performing Bruce’s sex change operation.”
9. Already received the blessing from his sons
Bruce Jenner has already moved away from the Pacific Coast Highway so that he can start his life anew – with the blessing of his sons Brody and Brandon. A source told RadarOnline, “It was done to give him as much privacy as possible. This is a very sensitive time for Bruce as he begins to live life as a woman. Bruce is now wearing women’s clothes almost full time at the house. And his sons Brody and Brandon have stopped by to visit. Yes, Brody and Brandon have been with Bruce as he has worn women’s clothes.”
The source added, “It isn’t weird for either Brody or Brandon, and both accept the situation. Fully supporting Bruce, Brody and Brandon have been there for him.”
10. He wants to look like Khloe Kardashian following his surgery
Sources have revealed to Hollywood Life that Bruce Jenner has always been enviable of Khloe Kardashian’s natural beauty and he really wants to emulate that when he transitions.
A source said, “Bruce is ready for the summer and ready to start his sex change. He wants to look as much as a woman as possible. He is really interested in looking as natural as possible. When it comes to his daughters and stepdaughters, he likes Khloe’s body structure most because she still has real curves and is tall. If Bruce had a choice, he would like to look like Khloe because she is healthy and not your normal Hollywood freak show.”
