Kris & Bruce Jenner Have an Extremely Emotional Conversation About His Transition in 'About Bruce' - Read the Transcript

Bruce and Kris Jenner just sat down and got very raw in a real conversation, which was taped for the Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce special.

“First of all, you’re an amazing woman. We have had so many great moments together. 25 years of great moments together. They still live inside me. They’re still part of me…I’m just trying to deal with myself and what’s best for myself. In so many ways, I’ve lived my entire life running away from me and who I am. We raised amazing children and those memories will live inside me forever. And I will continue to have more of those wonderful wonderful memories. And I just want to get through this and do the best damn job of not hurting anybody, and that includes you. I hope…you would be on board,” Bruce, 65, told Kris, 59, as he began the conversation.

“I think I’m just so confused right now…I think you shut me out a long time ago. You were angry, made me angry,” Kris said through tears.

Bruce: “First of all, you’re an amazing woman. We have had so many great moments together. 25 years of great moments together. They still live inside me. They’re still part of me…I’m just trying to deal with myself and what’s best for myself. In so many ways, I’ve lived my entire life running away from me and who I am. We raised amazing children and those memories will live inside me forever. And I will continue to have more of those wonderful wonderful memories. And I just want to get through this and do the best damn job of not hurting anybody, and that includes you. I hope…you would be on board.”

Kris: “I think I’m just so confused right now…I think you shut me out a long time ago. You were angry, made me angry,”

Bruce: “You treated me badly those last years of our marriage.”

Kris: “You were just very very angry where we just had to separate. So now it makes sense to me. The truth in your head was different from the truth that came out of your mouth.”

Bruce: “I don’t want to hurt you. God this isn’t easy.”

Kris: “I always knew that you struggled with wanting to dress differently, and dress as a female. And that was something you did whenever you got that urge. And I don’t know when you went from ‘This isn’t working for me anymore and I’m gonna go all the way and I’m gonna start taking hormones.’”

Bruce: “I wasn’t taking them while we were together. That was all done after we separated. I went to a therapist…I started working on things, trying to figure out my life. I did none of that before then. I took hormones back in the 80s way before I met you.”

Kris: “That’s part of the problem. You never explained. You couldn’t talk to me about it, was your answer every time. 10 years prior you did the exact same thing. I talked to you about it and I said I don’t know what is wrong with you…I said I can’t handle this. You said you’re right, I’m sorry. You never said it was because of any issues you had. I just thought you were going through something. I couldn’t work 18 hours a day and [have no one love me when I came home.]”

Bruce: “I’ve always had these issues. I’ve never dealt with them.”

Kris: I never saw this coming in a gazillion years. Your truth isn’t always the truth….You have to tell the truth.”

Bruce: “You were the toughest one to talk out of anybody.”

Kris: “Maybe it’s because I’m the one you lied to the longest.”

Bruce: “I apologize to you…you knew the issues. I apologize for not being more open with you on these issues. I apologize for hurting you.

Kris: “I just miss Bruce. It’s gonna take a minute for me to mourn that relationship. I’m trying so hard to process that pain. It’s a struggle. I wake up in the morning and realize this is happening…you think you’re gonna grow old with somebody and they drastically change…it’s like I have to mourn Bruce Jenner. I’m confused what happens to Bruce…I look at pictures, and I get really sad. Bruce died. And it’s really hard for me.”

Bruce: “Things may change, but I still want to be part of your life. I want you to be part of my life. Wonderful times, wonderful memories. I don’t just want to throw that out. I still love you baby. The bottom line here…but, hopefully I’ll be a better person. Happier. I want to be happy in life. I want to have a smile on my face. I want you to be happy. I keep thinking 65, I’m not gonna be around that much longer…Is there anything I can do now, to make it better for you.”

Kris: “Live the happiest life you can live. That’s all I care about. That you’re going through all of this for an amazing outcome. And that you can find the peace that you’ve been searching for. You were a great dad, a great friend, a great partner. At the end of the day it’s not about my feelings.”

    first of all…Bruce said on his interview with Diane Swayer that when he met Kris he explained why he had breast and that he had taken hormones (its on youtube, look it up) … I just can’t trust this family… I just can’t say who’s the biggest deceiver…

    I actually believed Kris. He never fully explained anything and she thought it was a phase. He made Kris look like the bad one in the Diane Sawyer interview. That was not nice of him.

  • tjpm

    Thats exactly my point, he is no angel…I feel bad for Kris, no woman should go through this.

  • MAXXX

    Now i pity kris. poor kris. Bruce has been making kris sound like the bad guy.

    when a man says “i took estrogen pills before” & doesn’t wanna explain it….what more of a red flag do u need? lol. women…a good amount of women….in relationships have a tendency to gloss over red flags. it would’ve been one thing if bruce never said anything….but he did, ergo Kris knew or had a very strong idea of what she was getting herself into UNLIKE Bruce’s first 2 ex wives that didn’t know anything until wayyyy into the marriage. Kris had an advantage those other women didn’t have….Bruce told her before marriage…”hey i’ve taken estrogen pills before.” On the ABC special, Bruce said Kris saw him with breasts.

    did bruce go into crazy detail? No. but did he tell u? YES.

    so what possessed u to still marry this man?

    oh i get it. u were divorced, approaching middle aged, divorced with 4 kids who were hungry.

    Kris as the wife can’t ACT like she was bamboozled by this when her own kids saw Bruce in drag on the regular lol.

  • ola akande

    ur speaking facts

  • tjpm

    I don’t see Kris as a bad guy, I see Bruce as the bad guy. No woman should go through this, none… and so public…this is nuts!

  • ImOpining

    Ha ha ha. PMK talking about “the truth”. Can she even spell “the truth”?
    She made it, yet again, all about her.
    Disgusting.
