Yep. They sure did. Kris Jenner pushed Bruce out the door and continued on with her lucrative lifestyle of the Kardashians. Taking full advantage of being single. All the while, Bruce was mostly behind closed doors, gathering up steam for his big reveal.
And boy, reveal he did! The interview with Diane Sawyer was a huge success, and brought Bruce to the forefront of the spotlight, along with his first two families. Where were the Kardashians? A little late to the party.
Obviously Queen Kris did not think that America would take Bruce into their hearts like they did. She tried to distance herself from him as much as possible, afraid he would “embarrass” her. It was all about her image, not his.
Now, Bruce did credit Kanye and Kim with coming around. I think Kanye can smell success from a mile away! And Kim went along with him, eventually encouraging Bruce. Bruce’s biological kids, Kendall and Kylie tweets were shown on the show. That was it as far as Kris’s family was seen on the show. His first two wives were shown as being very supportive, but Kris? Simply, “No comment”. She claims she was never contacted. Really? Biggest upcoming show on TV and she let it slide by? Not buying it. Of course, after all the hoopla settled, she did tweet a very encouraging statement. Hmmph. Too little too late, in my opinion.
I have seen no pictures of Bruce with Kendall and Kylie lately, but maybe they weren’t out in public. I have seen pictures of him with his first two families, and I am glad they are standing behind him. If anybody has right to be pissed, it is those children. Bruce basically became a “Kardashian” and his other children were pushed aside. I remember how hurt Brandon and Brody were. In fact, it was even shown on the KUWTK show. I sure hope Bruce can mend some fences, in more ways than just his gender crisis.
Now, I must admit, I was skeptical when I first noticed Bruce transitioning. I thought maybe he was doing it to spite Kris, or for the money. Bruce was my hero back in his Olympic days. And boy, he was HOT! I mean HOT HOT HOT!!! All women were madly in love with him.
But. Apparently this the direction he wants his life to take. I say live and let live. I have no problem with whatever people want to be. My only confusion is over his sexual and gender identities. He says the two are completely unrelated. He says he is a woman. He says he is a heterosexual. He says (quite emphatically) that he is NOT gay. I say this does not compute. If you are a woman, and want to have sex with only women, does that not mean you are a lesbian? I don’t know all the transgender language etc., but if Bruce does have the surgery, and fully completes his body transition…..well, I don’t know. In researching transgender, my head spins with all the different types that are recognized. Apparently you can go from to man to woman, still prefer women, and still be considered heterosexual. It is based on your gender at birth, not at transitioning.
There is a whole world out there that most people are not aware of. People are not just black and white anymore. There are many, many ways to feel, and live.
I am not going to judge. I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake it off.
