*LIVE UPDATING until 10pm EST*
Khloe on Bruce’s transition: “I’m fine with him dressing like a woman. I want Bruce to be happy…I don’t know her taste yet.”
Kim on finding out about Bruce: “I came home and walked in the garage and Bruce was dressed up like a woman. I ran to Kourtney’s and I was hysterical crying…so I kept this secret for maybe 12 years.”
Kendall on finding out about Bruce: “I woke up to get water…came to the kitchen…thank god he turned right because we would have bumped into each other…I just feel bad. If that’s really what makes you happy that you have to sneak around at 4am because you didn’t want to scare me and Kylie.”
Khloe: “Are you planning on not being Bruce anytime soon?”
Bruce: “That’s quite possible.”
Khloe: “When is bruce gonna be gone?”
Bruce: “The Spring”
Khloe: “Bruce is gonna be gone in the next 4-5 months?”
Bruce on talking to his children: “Sometimes it’s easier to talk to people you don’t know about this issue than it is to talk to your kids.”
Bruce on opening up: “I’ve had secrets my whole life it’s hard not to have secrets. When you carry around a secret for your whole life…you isolate yourself from the world. That’s not a good thing/ Am I doing the right thing? I dont want to hurt people…I don’t want to hurt anyone.
Kim on Bruce’s transition: “I think Bruce is afraid to let us down. We want to understand his struggle. We want to learn about it…relate to it in some way…I think what hurts us when we hear something is changing and happening and we don’t know about it. We want to be in the loop.”
Kim asks if Bruce is planning on transitioning fully.
Bruce: “I see myself in the future that way.”
Kim: “Hesitating four seconds makes us think you’re lying…You’ve probably already made the appointment…You have?”
Bruce: “I am planning on moving forward.”
Kris on Bruce’s transition: “My biggest concern is that you guys [her kids] are okay. I’m not okay. I don’t know how to handle this. This is my life. I committed to this life. I never expected that. Not in a million years….I have memories of this life and i feel like sometimes it didn’t exist”
Kim on her feelings towards Bruce’s transition: “There’s times when I get angry, resentful…there are times I get angry for my mom.”
Kendall on her fears: “I don’t want anyone to treat him bad…he wouldn’t hurt a fly. To think of someone giving hate or like, not being okay with who he wants to be…that scares me. That’s more of a worry to me than anything else.”
At one point, Bruce talks about surgeries, and says he just got a nose job and an upper lip lift. His forehead and jawline are next.
Bruce on his female casual style: “I love jeans and a good old sweater. I have had wigs.”
Bruce (through tears) about telling his family: “The greatest thing I’ve ever done is raise my children. It’s my greatest accomplishment. I’ve got to deal with myself. The last thing I want to do is hurt any one of you. Am I doing it right, Khloe? You can never do this right. There’s no right way to do this.”
Kendall on thinking something was happening when she was young: “We would find things like makeup or lipstick, and we thought he was having an affair at one point. And we didn’t know what to do, we didn’t want our family to be broken up.” (watch the moment below)
