Bruce Jenner is slated to sit down with Diane Sawyer and clear the air about everything once and for all. The gender transition, the nail polish, the Spanx?
If Bruce Jenner thinks we need to know about all that, it will probably come out. But the network does say that Sawyer had a “far-ranging, exclusive interview” with Bruce Jenner.
“Bruce Jenner — The Interview” is set to air on Friday, April 24. It is a specialk edition of 20/20.
Ahead of the interview, the AP spoke with Bruce Jenner’s mother Esther. She said that Bruce Jenner has already talked to her about everything he will reveal to the world via Diane Sawyer.
“He said, ‘I want to be honest about my identity and I know this is coming out in the press,’ ” his mother says. “He started by saying, ‘We need to have a long, serious talk.’ ”
Last year, Esther had spoken to The Daily Mail about Bruce Jenner, particularly about rumors surrounding his divorce from Kris Jenner.
“I love him, no matter what,” Esther Jenner said. “There’s such raunchy publicity all the time. I don’t know. I’ve brought this up to him on the phone when we’ve talked and he says, ‘Mum ,you can’t believe this stuff,” he said, ‘You can’t pay any attention to this stuff,’ and I said, ‘Well I want to tell you one thing Bruce, I don’t care if what they’re putting out is true or false, it’s not going to change my love for you,’ and it’s true that’s exactly how I feel, but I don’t like it.”
Maybe Bruce Jenner felt it was time to bring his mom up to speed about what everyone else seems to already know.
