Kris and Bruce Jenner cry it out in part two of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” special
In the second part of a Keeping Up With the Kardashians special, a tearful Bruce Jenner mourned the loss of her husband of 23 years.
‘I just miss Bruce,’ she said as she sat at the kitchen table with the 1976 Olympic gold medalist. ‘I’m trying so hard to process my pain and get through my days.’
Bruce Jenner confirmed publicly last month that he identifies as female and is in the process of transitioning. His story is the focal point of a two-part Keeping Up With the Kardashian’s special that concluded Monday.
‘I’m confused what happens to Bruce because I miss Bruce. All I have really are my memories … I feel like Bruce died.’
Tears streaking down her face, Kris rehashed the last painful years of their marriage: ‘I think you shut me out a long time ago… Now it makes sense to me. I think being honest is something I would have appreciated. … You never explained why you were so angry.
‘I turned into the Wicked Witch of the West because of the way you were behaving. … You were so far gone at that point that you had to go and do your own thing.’
Bruce apologized for his secrecy and for hurting her and assured his ex that he did not begin taking hormones until after they split and he moved to his own home in Malibu.
‘Hopefully I’ll be a better person – happier,’ he said.
In the end, Kris wished Bruce the best.
‘I just want you to know you were a great dad and a great friend and a great partner.’
