Bruce Jenner Fights Back Tears: ‘There’s No Right Way To Do This’ [VIDEO].

Bruce Jenner and the Kardashian family fought back tears Sunday night during a two-part special on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” called “About Bruce.” Khloe Kardashian, the youngest of the three Kardashian sisters, was upset with Jenner for waiting so long to tell them about his transition after he had made “premeditated” physical transitions and gone to therapy sessions. (RELATED: Did Bruce Jenner Get Breast Implants?) “The greatest thing I’ve ever done is raise my children,” the 65-year-old former Olympic athlete said. “It’s my greatest accomplishment.once jokingly worried that stepdad may steal her glam squad, but as it turns out, the former Olympian is doing just fine on his own in the style and beauty department. In a new interview with Access Hollywood airing Monday, May 18, Kardashian reveals that she’s seen Jenner, 65, in women’s clothing. “It was amazing and she looked beautiful, really beautiful,” Kanye West’s wife, 34, told Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush. “She was dressed up, beautiful makeup, beautiful hair, very, very beautiful and very comfortable.” Though some of his daughters were surprised to learn how far along Jenner is in his transition — including Khloe Kardashian and Kendall Jenner — his dabbling in clothes and makeup is less of a revelation. News will continue to refer to him as Bruce and use male pronouns, until he indicates otherwise.) “Kim has handled this transition with such grace and I’m incredibly proud to call her my sister…I hope you guys enjoyed tonight’s part 1 special of About Bruce.

People have a common knee-jerk reaction to the Kardashians: a scoff, a groan, and a “who cares.” These past few months have shown why we should be so glad that we do. The 30-year-old even purchased him the same white heels she has so the two could match. “I don’t know her taste yet so I’m trying to figure it out,” Khloe said. The special, which aired three weeks after Jenner publicly came out as trans in a widely watched and surprisingly nuanced and educational TV interview with Diane Sawyer, began with a note from Jenner. “Families of trans people often feel they need to grieve the loss of the person that they thought they know,” he said. “My family’s feelings are included here in the hope that other families will know that they are not alone, and to show that families move on from this grief. Today my family loves, supports, and accepts me as I am—and I am so grateful.” As one might expect from that introduction, the hour that followed was filled with tears. Tears that were earned, because they reminded us that an experience we’ve disgustingly turned into a tabloid story is a very personal one that affects real people.

I’m happy we opened up & shared our journey.” Lastly, Kourtney Kardashian chimed in on Instagram and wrote the following loving note: “Tonight we share a part of the journey we have been on in hopes of helping others in similar situations, or simply to help make the world a less judgmental place. And because the Kardashians are reality TV stars, they’ve signed their deal with the devil: to grapple with every emotion that accompanies such a dramatic experience in front of the entire world.

The refreshing thing about all of it is how the Kardashians aren’t viewing that duty as a chore, but as a responsibility and, more, as an opportunity. Brilliantly, and touchingly, the first scene of the special was Khloe, who Jenner himself has said has had the hardest time with his transition, wrapping some extra-large pairs of high heels to gift to her stepdad.

Khloe is actually the most combative in the episode, upset that Jenner has decided to transition fully within the year, but has kept it from his kids. “I don’t think it’s fair that you don’t tell us how close this is in the near future,” she said. “We’re still your kids.” They showed Bruce Jenner as these girls’ father. It’s such a simple, but necessary, thing to remember, and the thing that so many of us have forgotten as we’ve voraciously consumed as much gossip-y reporting as we could get on our hands on of Jenner’s transition and circled the Kardashian girls like vultures to get them to spill on what it’s been like to have Jenner come out as a woman. They also introduce the excellent point, and the point that the girls find themselves grappling with throughout the course of the episode: Bruce Jenner may be transitioning into Her, but he’s still their father.

Is it like denim on denim?” Bruce showed Kim a pedicure that he did on himself. “Your feet are actually way more feminine than I ever imagined,” she said. These moments hint at why Jenner choosing E! to do his docuseries with this summer is more than just loyalty to the network that helped build his family’s empire. When we view Bruce and Her as human, it’s a step towards tolerance and acceptance of the trans community—a community that also loves fun and loves humor, too. Still, Kim encapsulated the goal of the episode, which I’d say it achieved marvelously. “We want to understand his struggle,” she said. “We want to learn about it.

They are doing what we’ve demanded of them—spill about how this experience is affecting them—but they’re doing it on their own terms, and they’re doing it sensitively and with nuance and with respect to an entire community whose lives their actions and comments will affect.
