Bruce Jenner is rumored to be working on his own docuseries. While little is known about it yet, we’ve gathered the few scant facts and put two and two together for you. Here’s what we’ve come up with.
1. We might actually find out what’s behind his new look
In the last year, Bruce has been spotted wearing nail polish, with long hair below his shoulders, what seems to be a missing Adam’s apple after throat surgery and moobs and puffy lips, all after his split from Kris was announced. Are all of these things just coincidental parts of a man trying to find his way into his own identity after a divorce, or is Bruce actually transitioning from male to female? We hear the show will definitely address this.
2. The show will deal with some sort of medical transformation
While no one as of yet is coming right out and saying exactly what transformation the show will cover, a source told TMZ that it will definitely involve Bruce’s discussions with doctors about procedures and goals, as well as the “psychological implications” of whatever it is he is having done.
3. E! will be as sensitive as possible about the subject matter
A source told Variety that the head of publicity for the network planned a meeting with GLAAD on the most appropriate way to handle such a sensitive issue. We’re hoping this means we won’t have to watch Bruce get a bikini wax from one of his siblings, unlike a certain infamous episode of Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami when the sisters do this on-camera and it goes very, very wrong.
4. Bruce will be his own boss
Unlike the Keeping Up with the Kardashians empire, where Kris calls all the shots, Bruce is in charge of this production — although Kris and at least some of his children will make appearances. In fact, he is said to be so adamant about keeping this docuseries separate from KUWTK that he has insisted it not air until the series finale of the family’s show, sometime in May or June.
“Bruce’s journey shouldn’t be a story line on a piece of garbage reality show,” a source told RadarOnline. Ouch.
5. It will detail a mysterious “journey” — but don’t count on Kim to spill the beans
Kim Kardashian is really good at dancing around the subject. “I think everyone goes through things in life, and I think that story and what Bruce is going through, I think he’ll share whenever the time is right,” Kim told Entertainment Tonight. “I feel like that’s his journey to talk about.
“Of course we support Bruce 100 percent… 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.”
Whatever, Kim — we can read between the lines here.
