Bruce Jenner has been front and center in the tabloid news for months. His changed appearance–his long, flowing hair and flattened Adam’s apple–has had many questioning if he is in fact in the throes of transitioning from a male to a female. Now, it seems, even mainstream media is reporting on the Keeping Up With the Kardashians patriarch. But has anyone actually confirmed anything?
According to a recent report from the Washington Times, several of the tabloids report that Bruce Jenner will, in fact, soon share his transition from male to female in a new TV show on E!. Variety confirms that a docuseries is in the works.
The other point that has mainstream media starting to buy into all of the recent hype is a recent interview Kim Kardashian gave Entertainment Tonight.
When they asked if Bruce Jenner was “going through something,” Kim replied, “I think Bruce should tell his story his way.”
“Bruce is very happy, the happiest I’ve ever seen him. And he’s, you know, our dad, so we support him no matter what,” Kim said.
“And I think when the time’s right, he’ll talk about whatever he wants to talk about. I just feel like that’s really his journey to talk about,” Kim Kardashian added.

On Wednesday, Us Weekly shared a new photo they acquired of Bruce Jenner, sporting what appear to be inflated lips. It bears mentioning, however, that just a couple of weeks ago, InTouch magazine superimposed a headshot of Bruce onto a female’s shoulders–meaning that the tabloids can make readers see just about anything they want them to see.
It’s clear that despite whatever is going on with Bruce Jenner, he has the love and support of his family–even his ex-wife Kris Jenner. Kim Kardashian likely gave the best answer thus far, and the one that people should regard as far more truthful than anything they read in the tabloids. When Bruce Jenner is ready to tell his story, he will.
Do you expect that telling will come in the form of a new TV show?
