Bruce Jenner's Transition Feels Like a 'Death' to Family Members

Since he's revealed that he's planning on transitioning to a woman, Bruce Jenner's family, understandably, has been running the gamut of emotions. Bruce's five daughters with Kris seem to all have come to terms with their father's decision, but in part two of the Kardashian special, About Bruce, Kris Jenner still wasn't quite there yet


It seems like Kris has accepted her ex-husband's decision now, but at the time the special was shot, the Kardashian matriarch was going through something much different than her daughters: She was trying to mourn the man she was married to for so long. 

In the episode, Bruce went over to Kris' house to have a heart-to-heart with her. It was clear that the couple hadn't really spoken about what was going on -- and it was clear that both were nervous. After they spoke for a bit, Kris said, with mascara running down her face, "I just miss Bruce. It’s gonna take a minute for me to mourn that relationship. I’m trying so hard to process that pain. It’s a struggle. I wake up in the morning and realize this is happening," she said. "It’s like I have to mourn Bruce Jenner. I’m confused what happens to Bruce... I look at pictures of you and the kids and I get really sad... Bruce died."

Of course, no one will every really know exactly what went on with Kris and Bruce, but Bruce expressed that he felt that their problems were deeper than his gender identity issues -- and as an outsider, I would have to agree. The couple didn't seem to get along for a really long time, and it seemed like there were multiple reasons why. Kris, however, seems to differ, telling Bruce that he was "so angry" for so long. 

Either way, it has to be an incredibly difficult time for both Kris and Bruce. There's obviously no "right" way to handle this, but from the looks of things, they're doing the absolute best job they can -- and it certainly seems like they'll continue to make beautiful memories together. 

What do you think of Kris' reaction?
