Kardashians' Shocking Move Shows How They Really Feel About Bruce's Transition

The Kardashian-Jenner clan is known for being a vocal family, very vocal in fact, which is why the approach they're taking to publicize the new season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians seems rather bizarre at best. Actually, it's completely out of character for them.


Plain and simple: According to TMZ, no one is talking. And we mean no one. Not Kim, not Kourtney, not even Khloe who has always been known to take one for the team and chat up the media when no one else will. That's right -- the Kardashians have canceled their entire press tour in the days leading up to the season premiere of the show.

But their reasoning makes sense -- with Bruce Jenner's rumored transition into a woman expected to be a prominent story line throughout the season, none of them wants to blow the lid on the emotional and very sensitive topic.

(Loose lips sink ships, after all.)

Based on this bold move, it really sounds like the family's reasons for keeping quiet are sincerely to protect Bruce and allow him to tell his story in his own words, and not simply to build speculation and drive ratings to put more money into their pockets. But with Kris Jenner at the helm of any and all Kardashian-Jenner transactions, we'd be lying if we said we don't have a little bit of doubt about their reasoning. Given their track record for getting caught up in the media hype, it's only fair for us to be somewhat leery of their decision.

But let's be honest, how on earth is the entire fam going to remain tight-lipped not only for the duration of the new KUWTK season, but also until Bruce's series chronicling his transition premieres? One of them is bound to slip up and let a few details out at some point.

Do you think the Kardashians will really be able to keep quiet about Bruce?
