Bruce Jenner's Transition to a Woman Hits a Major Bump in the Road

Bruce JennerBruce Jenner has quite a lot going on these days. Not only is he transitioning to become a woman, but he was involved in a horrible car crash that left a 69-year-old woman dead. Bruce has been cooperating with investigators to figure out exactly how the woman was killed, but sources say that the crash has knocked his plans to become female into the backseat for now.


Apparently the interview with Diane Sawyer (which was reportedly already filmed) and his docu-series on his transition will go ahead as planned, but in terms of surgery, Bruce is rumored to be putting things on hold. A source told RadarOnline:

The accident is now taking precedence over his personal journey to become a woman. Bruce is giving all of his time and energy right now into helping out with the investigation and in making sure that there is peace for those close to the deceased.

This seems like the right call to me. Although Bruce has waited a very long time to become a woman, and it's a shame that he suddenly has to wait even longer, a woman being killed must take precedence over wanting to become a woman. Besides, Bruce has lived as a man for this many years, a few more months should be fine. I mean, it's not like this is open heart surgery and he needs it or he will die. That isn't to discount how much he must desperately want it though. I'm sure he does.

It's unclear what type of surgery Bruce will have or what kind of changes are yet to be made; presumably that will be cleared up with the Diane Sawyer interview. But he will probably need some peace and quiet with recovery time and that won't happen in the middle of an investigation. In fact, Bruce could still potentially be charged with a crime.

If you believe in kismet, perhaps the universe is telling Bruce to slow down?

Anyway, Radar says that the accident actually brought people out of the woodwork who wanted to support him in his grief, but they also expressed their support for his surgery.

Nothing will bring this poor woman back, and her family will remain devastated no matter what, but it does seem right that Bruce is prioritizing this tragedy over his transition.

Do you think he's making the right decision?
