Bruce Jenner did Khloe’s nails, and any day now, will be living as a woman.

Sunday’s Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce special revealed just how far along Bruce Jenner is in his transition from male to female – and daughters Kendall Jenner and Khloé Kardashian were just as surprised as viewers. “That’s something we all need to know,” insisted Kendall, 19, early in the special, which taped this “many months ago,” according to a message from Jenner himself. “You definitely withhold information,” Khloé told Bruce, adding to cameras, “We were never told that he was going to fully transition and become a woman” (a sentiment later confirmed by Khloé’s older sisters Kim, 34, and Kourtney, 36). Jenner’s 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer last month focused on his side of the story and featured his first four kids: Burt, Casey, Brandon and Brody.

But in a special episode of the Kardashians series, in which Kim Kardashian was shown turning down the opportunity to appear on the news special, the family opened up on the subject on their own terms. Asked Khloé, “So Bruce is going to be gone within the next 4-5 months?” While Khloé continued to assert her support, she told the stepfather who’d raised her since she was 4 years old: “I don’t think it’s fair that you don’t tell us how close this is in the near future. Sunday night’s special, filmed in January, focused on the reactions of his daughters Kendall and Kylie; stepdaughters Kourtney, Kim and Khloe; and ex-wife Kris (stepson Robert did not participate).

It kicked off with Khloe taking Bruce a present — four pairs of high-heeled shoes — which got Bruce emotional. “I don’t know her taste yet, so I’m trying to figure that out,” Khloe tell him. According to Kendall Jenner, Bruce’s daughter, the athlete told each of his children about his gender transition individually. (Bruce Jenner’s own stated preference is, currently, to use masculine pronouns about himself.) Jenner had been caught in dresses by both Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner at different stages, but both of those women, along with their sisters, were deeply concerned with the impact of Jenner’s transition upon ex-wife Kris Jenner.

Even you said she had a different personality.” A later conversation with Kim results in more revelations that she says she didn’t know, including his planned interview with Sawyer. He also tells her he will fully become a women likely this year, which surprises Kim. “I think what hurts,” Kim tells him, “is when we hear things are changing and happening and we don’t know about it. Khloe asks the burning question, whether Bruce plans on not being Bruce sometime soon. “That’s quite possible, yeah,” he tells her. “Probably in the spring (is when Bruce will be gone).” That would be — now. “He’s going to tell his full story,” Kim tells her sisters.

I’m not going anywhere.” The next day, Kim advised Bruce about delivering any forthcoming news he might have: “When you tell [all of us] you can’t hesitate. We just want to be in the loop.” He replies: “I’ve had secrets all my life; it’s tough not to have secrets.” Later on, Bruce, Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kylie and Kendall gather to discuss his transition in a discussion that gets heated and emotional in which the women admit they don’t feel like they are getting the full story from him. Hesitating even four seconds makes use feel like you’re lying.” Later, during a conversation with the rest of the daughters Kardashian-Jenner sisters, things got heated, and Khloé echoed the feeling that Bruce wasn’t being honest. They express surprise to learn the extent of his planning, including a nose job and upper lip left he’d kept secret (they’d suspected the former), plus upcoming surgeries on his forehead and jaw.

He also admitted he’d been out in public — like to the movies — as a woman and said his style is “good old jeans and sweaters” and said he’d worn wigs in the past. He also said getting haircuts had been a very “traumatic” experience for him: “I can’t take that, OK, I want my hair to be long but society says you have to cut it because you’re a guy,” he admits in a confessional. “It’s hard for me to just really believe it’s happening,” Kris admits, adding: “I want him to be happy, but my biggest concern is, are you guys [his kids] OK. I committed to this life and I think that he just backed out.” She also admits to being hurt that Bruce hadn’t been more honest with her. “I have memories of this life, and sometimes I feel like it didn’t exist,” she says. This special showed the inner lives of members of the extended Kardashian family, and provided a template for family members of those transitioning as to how they should voice their concerns and emotions while still being supportive.

The special also featured revelations from Kim, Kendall, Khloe and others about how they’d caught him dressed up in women’s clothes when they were all young. “I feel bad,” Kendall says in her confessional interview. “If that’s what makes you happy, and you had to sneak around at 4 a.m. because you didn’t want to scare me and Kylie?” Adds Khloe of her frustration with his lack of communication about his timeline: “I want Bruce to do what’s best for him, but you couldn’t have given us a little more time?” And Kendall adds: “I’m more worried about how people are going to treat him … because he is honeslty one of the greatest people I know. So to thin of someone giving him hate or not being OK with who he wants to be and what makes him happy, that scares me and it’s more of a worry to me than anything else.” Presumably, this means whether he’s undergoing a sex change. “A few more little tweaks and then I’m kind of done with that,” he told Kim, never specifically answering that question.
