Bruce Jenner to Star in Docuseries Exposing His ‘New Life’ and ‘Journey’
What exactly that may mean, no one really knows yet. Aside from his recent divorce from Kris Jenner, however, the former Olympian has been making tabloid headlines for his changed appearance and style choices (e.g. longer hair, nail polish, shaved Adam’s apple).
Some people are speculating his new docuseries maybe has something to do with his gender identity.
TMZ reports that Bruce, 65, is “calling ALL the shots in the production of his upcoming docuseries which chronicles a journey that will produce some fundamental changes in his life”.
Set to air in May or June on E! (not until after the finale of “Keeping Up With the Kardashian” airs), TMZ was further told that “a significant portion of the docuseries will involve Bruce’s interaction with doctors, discussing procedures and goals. It will also deal with psychological implications”.
Bruce’s family will be appearing in the docu-series, but they will not be at the center of the storyline. It’s all about Bruce’s side of the story, and his alone; additionally, he’s calling the shots, not Kris. TMZ was told his docuseries is a “completely separate project” from KUWTK (which also makes it home at E!).
A production source revealed to People, “Bruce has been filming his new life. His film crew have been told to keep everything hush-hush.” However, a spokeswoman for E! declined to comment on reports.
Us Weekly’s latest cover story will also feature Bruce, and his unscripted docuseries which they claim to be about his “transformation”.
Kim Kardashian sat down with Entertainment Tonight and gave some insight into Bruce’s personal life. Kim said she supports him “100%” and that he’s the “happiest” she’s ever seen him. Additonally, she explained,
“He’s our dad so we support him no matter what, and I think when the time is right, he’ll talk about whatever he wants to talk about. I just think it’s his story to talk about, not really mine.”
Kris, his now ex-wife of 23 years, had formerly said on the “Today” show that speculation about Bruce undergoing gender reassignment surgery was “silly”, and are the same rumors from the 70’s. “They just keep regurgitating the same old stuff.”
Khloé Kardashian also showed her support for Bruce a couple days ago, having some father-daughter bonding time (which she shared about via Instagram):
