Is Bruce Jenner’s Interview With Diane Sawyer Just One Big Hoax?

bruce jenner diane sawyer

ABC has been going nuts releasing “teasers” for Bruce Jenner‘s upcoming big interview with Diane Sawyer. We’re all under the assumption that this 2-hour special is about Big News. Mainly, the big news that Bruce is planning to officially undergo a sex change and begin living as a woman. But is that the case? Could this whole thing actually be one big hoax and see Bruce just discussing his big “life change” as in life after divorce from Kris Jenner? Some people seem to think so.

From KQED:

The family has not publicly commented on Bruce allegedly being trans, but, earlier this year, Kim had this to say, when asked about her stepfather: “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. I feel like that’s his journey to talk about.”

So, either she means what she says about his supposed transition not being her story to tell…or — and I really hope it isn’t this or — she is teasing around the issue, using terminology that could be applied to a transition, but actually is about something mundane like his transition from being married for 24 years to being single in his 60s.

All our questions will be answered when the much-hyped interview with Diane Sawyer airs on April 24, 2015. The promos tease: “The  Journey, The Decisions, The Future.” And Jenner is quoted as saying: “My whole life has been getting me ready for this.” Again, words that could be about being trans, but are not specific enough to get anyone in trouble if this all turns out to be a ratings ploy. It’s not their fault we assumed they were talking about being trans, right? No one ever said anything explicitly about that.

I mean, it brings up a good point – we are all just assuming that’s what he’s going to talk about in this interview, but they have all been quite coy about it…

Then again, there’s no way ABC is going to shell out the cash and resources to air a 2 hour special about Bruce Jenner adjusting to single life after getting divorced, so I’m still waiting to see him talk about being transgender. Not that he should have to do it at all, let alone in an ABC News special, but here we are.

Bruce Jenner Speaks Out In New Diane Saywer Interview Promo

bruce jenner abc news

Bruce Jenner is getting ready to reveal all in a 2-hour sit down interview with Diane Sawyer for ABC News, and the network is seriously trying to hype this thing up as much as possible. Everyone who gives an iota of a shit will be tuning in to hear Bruce talk about his intention to transition into a woman and undergo a sex change, but that’s not enough – ABC wants you to really want this, so they’ve started releasing promo clips that are totally ambiguous and shrouded in mystery.

If you can’t watch the video above or just can’t be bothered, Bruce teases that “[his] whole life has been getting [him] ready for this”, but that’s about all.

If you missed the first promo, here it is:

What do you think? Will you be tuning in for this?

Date set for Bruce Jenner’s interview with Diane Sawyer

bruce jenner

Bruce Jenner has been planning a lengthy sit-down interview with Diane Sawyer for ABC for several months, though it was unknown when said interview would air – until now, that is. ABC revealed yesterday that a two hour special aptly titled Bruce Jenner – The Interview will air Friday, April 24th at 9pm.

The interview was apparently filmed a couple of months ago, right around the time his intention to transition became public (though “became public” seems like a stretch since Bruce has never confirmed this, even to this day), so it should be interesting to see what’s discussed.

“Bruce’s primary goal is to bring awareness to this issue in order to help others [in the transgender community],” a source told PEOPLE. “He is not sure that E! and a reality show is the best format to do that.” 

Jenner “wants this to be taken seriously so that [his situation] can have the most positive impact on society’s perception of the transgender community,” said the source. 

Incidentally, the entire Kardashian clan is due to be out of the country in Armenia when this interview airs. April 24th is also apparently the anniversary of the Armenian genocide, but the Kardashians have claimed their trip to Armenia on that date has nothing to do with that, so… yeah.

US Weekly is sorry for lying about Kendall Jenner’s Bruce Jenner quotes

kendall jenner

Yesterday, US Weekly published a story (which has since been removed from the site) which featured “quotes” from Kendall Jenner about her father, Bruce, and his transition into becoming a woman. I read the original story, but since I don’t have the exact quotes now, it was something along the lines of how she’ll always love her dad for being there for her throughout her life and she supports him whether he’s a man or a woman. Now, is all of that true? I’m sure. Did Kendall actually say it? Uh… definitely not.

Kendall took to Twitter a few hours after the story was published to express her outrage:

In what is probably the most respectable move they’ve ever made, US Weekly decided to retract their original statement and issue an apology… although not really, because instead of taking ownership of their bullshit, they’ve blamed it on a “freelance journalist” who did the “interview” and whose story they can no longer “verify”. Fuck off, US Weekly.

On Wednesday, March 18, Us Weekly published on UsMagazine.com an interview with model and reality star Kendall Jenner entitled “Kendall Jenner Breaks Silence on Bruce Jenner’s Transition: ‘I Will Always Love My Dad.’” The interview was allegedly conducted by an independent freelance journalist at the Saturday, March 14, taping of Comedy Central’s roast of Justin Bieber in Los Angeles. When Ms. Jenner denied, via Twitter, that the interview took place, Us Weekly immediately reached out to the freelance reporter. He stood by the interview, and continues to maintain that the quotes are accurate. However, after attempting to reconfirm his account, editors of Us have concerns about the veracity of this interview and the circumstances under which it was obtained. We would like to retract the story entirely and have removed it from our website. We sincerely apologize to Ms. Jenner and her family.

Ridiculous… and yet, how are these magazines not having to issue retractions/apologies every day?

Bruce Jenner was completely at fault for that fatal car crash

bruce jenner

A few weeks ago, Bruce Jenner was involved in a fatal car crash involving 2 other vehicles that left one person dead, but up until now it was uncertain who was at fault for the accident. Now we have video footage (well, the police do) from how it all went down and it makes one thing crystal clear: Bruce is the sole reason this accident happened at all.

Law enforcement would not comment on the video, however, others familiar with it tell TMZ it shows the drivers of the other 3 vehicles in the crash did nothing wrong. We’re told the video shows the Lexus and the Prius moving at a very slow rate of speed, though it’s unclear whether they are accelerating or decelerating. They were in the back of a line of cars stopped for a red light.

As we reported, Bruce told cops at the scene the Lexus driver slammed on her brakes without warning, making it impossible for him to react in time to avoid the crash. We’re told the video actually shows the Lexus barely moving — she did not slam on her brakes — and Bruce is clearly inattentive, holding his cigarette with one hand and not aware of the traffic in front of him. By the time he realizes he’s in peril, he slams on the brakes but it’s too late.

We’re told the video shows Bruce hit the Lexus “violently” … rocketing it into the Hummer, killing the Lexus driver. Our sources say the video shows Bruce was clearly traveling at a significant speed given the magnitude of the crash, although cops believe he was not speeding.

Bruce then continued on and hit the Prius, and we’re told that collision occurred at almost the exact time the Lexus hit the Hummer, which is why witnesses say they only heard 2 crashes.

Although the video seems to show Bruce and Bruce alone caused the crash, it was still an accident and some of our law enforcement sources think it’s unlikely he’ll be charged with vehicular manslaughter because the offense is following too closely, something everyone has done.

Frankly, none of us were there and we haven’t seen the video, so I can’t really say shit about it – especially since he apparently wasn’t speeding. However, cars are dangerous and SOMETHING must have happened to make him go slamming into two cars. Was he busy texting, as some have suggested? Was he just not paying attention? What the hell?

Bruce Jenner is taking low dosage hormones

I feel very conflicted about continuing to report on Bruce Jenner‘s gender identity – especially until he says something himself. I try to handle it with sensitivity, but this is a celebrity gossip blog and this is very big news in the eyes of the media, so here we are. Today’s story seems to be centered around the revelation that Bruce is taking a low dosage of hormones to grow breasts – news which came to light since he apparently told police this after his recent fatal car crash.

From Radar Online:

After passing field sobriety tests at the scene of the accident, Bruce voluntarily agreed to submit to a blood test at a local hospital as part of the investigation into the cause of the accident that left an elderly woman dead.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies accompanied Bruce to the hospital for the blood test. (He wasn’t taken into custody or arrested.)

During the blood draw, Bruce was asked if he was taking any medication and said that “he was taking very low dosage of hormones that his doctor had prescribed,” a source told RadarOnline.com. “Bruce has nothing to hide, and was very cooperative with cops, and appreciated their professionalism.

“During the entire process Bruce was obviously very, very shocked and inquiring about the other victims — this has been a total nightmare for him, and Bruce is taking it very, very hard.”

Bruce had revealed to taking the hormones so he could grow breasts, to look more feminine before his planned gender reassignment surgery?, the source said.

Frankly, I’m not sure how the “source” found this one out – it’s such a bizarre story to leak and such an inconsequential part of the bigger story (which was, of course, about this fatal car crash). If it’s true, good for him – I’m happy that Bruce is finally coming into his own and is getting closer to being the person he has always known he is but wasn’t able to show on the outside. Also, Bruce Jenner needs new friends if the ones he has think selling stories to the press like this is cool.

Kris Jenner totally knew Bruce Jenner planned to transition

kris jenner bruce jenner

Despite the fact that Kris Jenner has tried to pretend that she was completely blindsided by Bruce Jenner‘s plan to announce that he’s transgender and transition to being a woman, “sources” (read: anyone with a working brain) have called bullshit and said OBVIOUSLY she knew, she just didn’t want to hurt “the brand”. Because duh.

We’re told Jenner’s sons are finding it hard to stomach reports that Kris had no idea Bruce was becoming a woman. That’s exactly what Kardashian sources told TMZ, that Kris was in the dark.

But that has infuriated members of Bruce’s family, who say Kris has known since they got married that Bruce “had issues with his sexual identity.” And they say his desire to transition surfaced years ago.

Our Jenner sources say Kris wanted it under wraps because it would “hurt the brand.” So for the last few years they say she was ironfisted about keeping it all private.

We’re also told the Jenner boys are upset with Kim — although they will deny it publicly — because they are convinced she knew exactly what she was doing when she talked about Bruce’s journey and she jacked Bruce’s moment.

Welp, no surprises there. Kris Jenner is a monster and will continue to be, and she’s bred mini versions of herself that will destroy our world for years to come. Hurrah?
