ABC News confirmed that Diane Sawyer has the first exclusive interview with Bruce Jenner since it became known that the former Olympian and reality TV star is transgender and is beginning the transition to living life as a woman. The sitdown, which will air as a special two-hour edition of "20/20" on April 24 at 9 p.m. (during sweeps, obviously!), promises to be one of the most highly anticipated TV news events in recent years, according to the network. Although Bruce, 65, has not yet publicly revealed he's transitioning, his mother confirmed it to a reporter. “Right now I am more proud of him for what he’s allowing himself to do,” Esther Jenner said. “I am more proud of him now than when he stood on that podium and put the gold medal around his neck. He deserves all the respect.” ABC has provided no specifics (as of yet) as to what's included in this two-hour interview, other than to say "it's very in-depth." We'll be watching.
Update: While the rest of his family attended Easter Sunday church service, Bruce went for a hike in the woods. Photos show him wearing red nail polish and sporting an oversized zip-up sweater, which has many wondering if he's trying to conceal his breast implants.
Update 2: RadarOnline has some more tea.
Bruce Jenner’s docuseries is back on track! The former Olympian halted filming on the project in the wake of his fatal Malibu car crash in February, but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that filming recently started up again — and his breast implant surgery was caught on camera. “Cameras were there during Bruce’s breast implant surgery,” an insider told Radar. “The days leading up to the surgery were very emotional for him, and there was talk about canceling the surgery. He was very nervous and was having last-minute doubts about making such a drastic alteration to his physical appearance.” “Filming took place for a few minutes during the surgery, and immediately picked up in the recovery room after it was over,” the source revealed. “Cameras were also present during post-operative visits to the plastic surgeon. Bruce will have the final approval about what footage will be shown on the docuseries.” Jenner has undergone several procedures already, including shaving his Adam’s apple, as well as getting a nose job to feminize his appearance. He has also been taking hormones, which have helped to soften his appearance and have aided in the enlargement of his breasts, said the source. The final step, as Radar reported, is gender reassignment surgery, which will be taking place within the next couple of months, in “either May or June,” according to the source. Footage of the breast implant surgery could also be used during Jenner’s upcoming interview with Diane Sawyer, which will air on April 24 as Radar reported. “Again, it will be up to Bruce, and he wants total control about how it’s packaged and presented,” the insider added.
Update 3: And there's video! These photographers are so nasty and so rude. The man behind the camera asks Bruce: "How's the transitioning going? Have you had any surgeries lately?" I just can't! Bye!
Update, April 10: ABC released the first promo/trailer and from the camera trickery employed, there's no doubt Bruce is a lady. How You Doin'!
