Jenner told Sawyer that he struggled with what his gender truly is since he was a young boy growing up in upstate New York. Jenner said he went through his mother’s closet to try on her dresses. He went on to say that he also dressed up in his older sister’s clothing too. The sister Pam Mettler also appeared on the interview seemingly very supportive of her younger brother. She said she never knew that her brother struggled with gender identity.
Metter suggested that Jenner’s transition would take some getting used to but at the end of the day, her brother has her support. Jenner told Sawyer that for all intents and purposes he is a woman. He appeared on camera wearing a blue shirt, black mens paints and mens shows, he had long hair that he took out of a pony tail. It was indicated in the interview that Jenner still wanted to be called Bruce and referred to as him and he.
His four older children from his first two marriages appeared and camera and said their father had their full support. Although these same four children lambasted Jenner in the past as an absentee father, now they appear to support Jenner’s inner struggles. Burt Jenner 36, and his younger sister Cassandra Jenner Marino, 34 are the children of Jenner’s first wife Chrystie Scott. Cassandra has rarely been seen publicly in spite of Jenner being in the international spotlight since 1976, almost 40 years. She has two children Francesca, 6 and Isabella 3, with her husband Michael Marino. These are two of Bruce Jenner’s grandchildren, and have never been mentioned publicly by Jenner. The only grandchildren that have ever been mentioned on his highly successful reality show ‘Keeping up with the Kardasians’ are step daughter Kourtney’s kids, Mason, Penelope and Reign Disick.
Two other Jenner children, Brandon, 33 and Brody,31 who are the sons of Jenner and his second wife Linda Thompson also appeared on camera singing Jenner’s praises. Both men have appeared on the E reality show numerous times and have voiced harsh criticism for their father. Both have said that their father was basically absent in their lives as they were growing up.
Outwardly his older children and first two ex wives appear to be supportive of Jenner’s desire to be a woman. His step children and most recent ex wife Kris Jenner seem to be struggling with this latest revelation. Jenner said his step daughter Kim Kardashian, 34, was the most supportive out of the Kardashian clan. He said they have had many long conversations, and she has been very supportive and open to his gender issues. This is a fluid developing story…….
