Kim opens up about her family’s reaction to Bruce Jenner’s decision


Kim Kardashian yesterday became the first family member to officially speak out about Bruce Jenner's transition to life as a woman since his tell-all interview aired on Sunday night.

The mum-of-one discussed Bruce's choice and what it means for the Kardashian-Jenner clan in a pre-recorded segment with the TODAY Show which aired yesterday in the US.

She admitted that it has been difficult for the family to get used to the news and that they have been undergoing counselling sessions as a group. "I think there is still an adjustment and there is family therapy," Kim said.

However Kim added that the family support Bruce all the way, despite the media speculating otherwise. "I see reports that say, this one doesn't support him, and this one's over here, and my mom feels this way, and it's all really so made up. We all really support him. Is it a hard adjustment? Yes," she said.

As is to be expected, Kim said they all had a lot of questions, and were understandably worried about being insensitive or ignorant of Bruce's situation. "What do we call him? Do we say him or her? How do we be respectful? There's so many different things that you just want to be supportive and you just want to be respectful, and I think that everything takes time," she admitted.

"Until that transition is done, we've learned that you do refer to him as him. He [Bruce] has been really, really good at explaining everything to us, even though it's really new. These have been newer feelings – not newer feelings for him, but for us to digest. He's done a really good job of walking us through it."

The reaction from the public has been overwhelmingly positive, but Kim says she believes Bruce is more than capable of coping with any negativity. "I think that he has waited almost 65 years to make this decision, whether it's kept it to himself or not; he's lived with it," she explained. "And I think that when you are finally ready to be your true self then you're prepared for anything."
