Bruce Jenner has confirmed what has been speculated for some months now…that he is transitioning into a female. The Olympic winning athlete who is the patriach of the Kardashian clan confirmed the still shocking news a few moments ago on his ABC exclusive with Diane Sawyer, saying, “Yes, for all intents and purposes, I’m a woman,”

Jenner also told Sawyer that he had the “soul of a female. my brain is much more female than it is male” even though he has all the “male parts.” When he closes his eyes and dreams, he is a woman.

During the interview he sometimes spoke about himself in the third person saying, “Bruce Jenner has always been confused with my gender identity. I’m me. … I’m a person. I’m not stuck in anybody’s body.”

It was then he loosened his hair, pulled out his ponytail to reveal his long flowing hair.

Even though he is now living his life as a woman Bruce says he is not gay! Jenner said,

“I’ve never been with a guy, There’s two different things here. Sexuality is who you are personally attracted to. …. But gender identity is who you are in your soul.”

During the explosive interview he said his story was the one true story the family was hiding,

I had the story,We’ve done 420 episodes, I think, and the entire run I kept thinking to myself … the one real true story in the family was the one I was hiding. The one thing that could really make a difference in people’s lives was in my soul, and I couldn’t say anything.

During the interview, Sawyer said that ABC sought comment from Jenner’s third wife, Kris Jenner, but that Kris declined. Kris however denied this in a tweet to Perez Hilton: “No one asked me to comment …. and I’m sitting with Bruce now watching this show so let’s keep it real…”


Bruce’s older kids (from his first and second marriage) also showed up during the interview to show support. None of the Kardashians or his youngest daughters did. During the interview Bruce revealed of all the Kardashian kids Kim had been the most understanding & he credits Kanye West with that. He told Kim when she was having a hard time accepting her step father’s change,

I could be married to the most beautiful woman & I am, I can have the most beautiful little daughter in the world & i have that. But I’m nothing if i can’t be me & if I can’t be true to myself they don’t mean anything.


The Kardashian’s have all tweeted their support

At the end of the interview Bruce Jenner showed Diane Sawyer a black dress from his closet and said he would introduce Diane to HER.

Shocking stuff!
