During Diane Sawyer’s 2-hour long conversation with Bruce Jenner, which was watched by nearly 17 million pairs of eyeballs (you can watch it here if your ass missed it), she said that it would be his last interview as Bruce Jenner. Since she said that, I was hoping that he’d tell us what his new name is. The tabloids have said that his new name is Belinda. But I’m hoping that it’s either Concepcion (because this world desperately needs a famous type named Concepcion) or Kriscangotohella Jenner. Bruce didn’t say what his new name is, because he thinks the media will go crazy with it. Maybe he’s saving that info for his new E! reality show, which is happening and will air this summer.
Earlier this year, everyone and their cousin reported that Bruce was shooting a “docu-series” (“docu-series” is reality TV’s super serious cousin who listens to Serge Gainsbourg, wears glasses and only drinks red wine from Europe) for E! about his journey. But then TMZ said that Bruce pressed the stop button on production, because he felt like they were rushing him and he also needed time to deal with that fatal car accident. Well, it’s obviously back on track, because E! released a press release about the show last night during the interview.
E! will soon debut a new documentary series that gives viewers an inside look at the Olympic athlete embracing life as a transgender woman. Living for the first time as the person he feels he was born to be, the docu-series will explore what Jenner’s transition means for the people in his life and how those relationships will be affected, while offering a better understanding of life’s many challenges.
(At this time, Bruce Jenner has not chosen to publicly identify as a woman and so E! News will continue to refer to him as Bruce and use male pronouns, until he indicates otherwise.)
The eight-part, one-hour series premieres July 26 at 9 p.m. on E! and will also air on the E! channels internationally. The series title will be announced at a later date.
“Bruce is incredibly courageous and an inspiration, and we are proud to be entrusted with this deeply personal and important story,” says Jeff Olde, executive vice president, programming and development, E! “This series will present an unfiltered look as Bruce boldly steps into uncharted territory and is true to himself for the first time.”
If you’re in L.A. today and heard what sounded like a toad loudly crying through the valley, it’s just Ryan Seacrest bawling over not being a producer (read: getting a piece of the pie) on Bruce’s new reality show.
Some people are side-eyeing this new reality show, because they think that you can take the Bruce Jenner out of the Kartrashians, but you can’t take the Kartrashian out of Bruce. I, for one, am for this show, because it may spread more info and we may learn his new name and we may see his fashion style. Bruce gave us a peek of his style last night by showing us that little, black cocktail dress, which didn’t look four-sizes too small and wasn’t made of leather, so thankfully that means Kanye isn’t his stylist.
During last night’s interview, all of Bruce’s children with his first and second wives talked to Diane and were nothing but supportive. His second wife Linda Thompson also wrote a long op-piece for HuffPo. Kendull and Kylie Jenner gave a statement to ABC News, but Pimp Mama Kris and the KKKs had no comment. Bruce said that Khlozilla took it the hardest and Kim Kartrashian came around after Kanye talked to her. (When Kanye is the voice of reason….) I figured that PMK and the KKKs didn’t give a statement to ABC News, because they were waiting to say their own “statements” in a 3-hour special event on E! where they’d cry, make it about themselves, cry some more, make it about themselves some more and end it by taking selfies of their coochies and asking Scott Disick to pick the prettiest one. The one that Scott picks is the one they’ll send to Bruce with the note: “If you get the surgery, tell the surgeon to make your vagine look like this!” They’re probably saving that episode for sweeps.
Eventually, PMK, the KKKs and Rob tweeted their own statements:
Yes, Kim is that trick who will tweet a selfie of you and her and will Photoshop her own skin but leave your pores and wrinkles open to the world.
