‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce': TV Review.

Viewers are about to get an insight into the emotional reactions of Bruce Jenner’s loved ones as they initially digested the information that he was going through a transition process to become a woman. As Bruce Jenner continues to navigate through more changes than most people face in a lifetime, one thing remains exactly the same—how much he loves his family.When Kris Jenner and her daughters failed to appear on Bruce Jenner: The Interview last month, it was pretty much a given that they were saving their reaction for a “very special episode” of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. During an appearance on the red carpet for the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, his 19-year-old daughter Kendall spoke proudly of her father’s decision to share his plans publicly. “You know, honestly I’ve never seen him happier,” the model told E!’s Giuliana Rancic. “I was with him yesterday and that alone makes me so happy. The Olympic gold medalist couldn’t help but get emotional while talking several months ago with stepdaughters Kourtney, Kim and Khloé Kardashian and daughters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, all of them coming together to seek answers from their dad about his decision to finally start living as the woman he’s always felt himself to be.

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. The confrontation shows Khloe confronting Bruce about not being fully honest with his children about his sex change intentions and it makes for heart rending viewing as he is taken to task over the most important decision of his life. So, to see him happy and to see him going through this and staying so strong and really thinking about his kids is amazing.” Bruce has Kendall and sister Kylie, 17 with his third wife Kris Jenner, who he split from in October 2013. The good news is that as he embarks on the final stages of his transition into presenting as a woman, Jenner’s haircut days are over.” And as The Hollywood Reporter pointed out, Bruce had begun the transition process already when this special was filmed — he has had a nose job and upper lip lift, and had upcoming procedures for his jaw and forehead. While Bruce clearly thinks he has given sufficient information to each of his kids about his feelings, Khloe is adamant that he wasn’t clear enough and her tough guidance prompts him to disclose in full that in a few months time, he would be a woman.

He also has two children from his first marriage, son Burt and daughter Cassandra, known as Casey, as well as two sons from his second wife Linda Thompson, Brandon and Brody. These conversations between Bruce and his daughters and step-daughters, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, took place on and around January 13 — before the Sawyer interview. Kendall later reveals to the show that there were signs of Bruce’s conflict, as they would find female accessories that they initially thought must have belonged to another woman. He taught me how to ride a bike and be the tomboy that I am.” Meanwhile Kim, 34, is also seen fighting back tears over the family’s latest development as she discusses her concern over how Kris is handling the news. “I was thinking, ‘Mom this is really hard for her.’ It’s so sad. That is not my intention.” “If I’m not honest because I’m afraid to talk to you about this subject, because I know it hurts, I understand that,” Bruce continues. “Am I doing it right, Khloe?

The emotional episode marks the first time that we get such a fraught insight into how Bruce’s loved ones dealt with the life changes that were happening in the family. 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.

The 33-year-old singer rolled in her mini-me on a large red stroller and brought along her stylish floral changing bag, which every mom knows is a necessity for a good night out. The American Idol winner later took to the stage for a stunning performance of the touching ballad “Invincible” from her seventh studio album Piece By Piece. Clarkson’s breathtaking rendition of her inspiring single with the lyrics “What was I running for/ I was hiding from the world/ I was so afraid/ I felt so unsure/ Now I am invincible,” garnered attention from all eyes in the room. Nick Jonas even admitted his excitement to see the diva sing live and dished about it to Entertainment Weekly. “Kelly Clarkson is one that I always enjoy watching,” he explained. “She has such a great voice.”

Kris was seen only briefly in the first hour of the two-night event (part two airs tomorrow night) but she tells Kim that she has “memories of this life and I feel sometimes like it didn’t exist.” And Khloe wonders if Kylie and Kendall should have a chance to say goodbye to their dad. While the hour wasn’t as tacky as it could have been, something about the special cheapened the plaintive honesty Jenner displayed in his revealing interview with Sawyer.
