Bruce Jenner wants to star on his own reality TV show that will document his sex change transition. Jenner, 65, has been besieged by rumors that he wants sex change surgery to become a woman.
“Bruce wants his own reality show, chronicling his transformation into a woman,” a source told Hollywood Life. “He thinks that a sensitive show, where he is honest about the wonderful changes he’s gone through, would be truly groundbreaking — and a huge change from the staged shows he’s had to do with the family in the past.”
Insiders claim Jenner wants to feature his sons, Brody and Brandon (who have appeared on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians”) on his reality show, but it’s unclear whether there’s any interest from Hollywood producers.
“By contract, Bruce has to take any new series to E! first,” said a source. “But they are not interested in him. They don’t think Bruce can carry his own show.”
Jenner’s increasingly feminine appearance has generated numerous headlines during the past year. Bruce was recently photographed sporting an elegant French manicure while filling up his SUV at a Los Angeles gas station.
Earlier this month, Jenner’s ex-wife, Chrystie Scott, revealed Bruce is a cross-dresser who wants to live life as a woman. Bruce has remained on good terms with Chrystie, who said she supports him with whatever he wants to do.
“I support him in whatever he chooses to do,” said Scott, who was married to Jenner from 1972 to 1980. “We see him off and on at family events and he is a very proud and present grandfather. I just want him to be happy.”
Other reports claim Bruce, who has been photographed with hot-pink nail polish, feathery blown-out hair, fuller lips and shiny, shaved legs, wants to be called “Agnes” starting in 2015. Jenner allegedly plans to go public with his sex change in the new year because he’s tired of hiding his desire to be a woman.
Insiders claim the former Olympic decathlete has been taking hormones and wants breast implants as part of his transformation. “Bruce is dealing with a public relations professional who started working with him on a consultation basis first,” said an insider. “He has been taking hormones for months. He is tired of living a lie.”
Bruce’s ex-wife, Kris Jenner, has long denied Bruce wants a sex change, saying those rumors have circulated since the 1970s. “It’s silly!” said Kris, author of In the Kitchen with Kris. “[The tabloids have] been saying that since the ’70s, so you think he’d be cooked by now. They just keep regurgitating the same old stuff.”
Despite the denials, Bruce’s appearance has changed dramatically since he separated from Kris in October 2013. Recent reports claimed Jenner recently got surgery to have his penis removed and replaced with a surgically constructed vagina.
Bruce has admitted getting several plastic surgeries since the 1980s, including a nose job and two facelifts, among others. In December 2013 (two months after the Jenners separated), Bruce got a laryngeal shave, a plastic surgery procedure that flattens the Adam’s apple.
The laryngeal shave is usually a precursor to a sex change operation. At the time, Jenner said he got the surgery because he hated how his Adam’s apple looked, and denied he was preparing to get gender reassignment.
Since then, new reports have surfaced claiming Jenner has undergone estrogen treatments, which have caused him to sprout “man boobs.” In September 2014, tabloids published photos showing Bruce wearing a Spanx girdle under his golf outfit.
A week later, other photos showed Jenner wearing what some claim was a sports bra under his athletic shirt. In November 2014, reports surfaced that Bruce had already undergone surgery to have his penis remove and replaced with a surgically constructed vagina.
A producer on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” allegedly confirmed Jenner’s sex change. “Bruce just told everyone that he’s a woman,” said the producer. “Bruce just told everyone that he’s a woman.
“He went to Thailand, and had gender reassignment surgery. He’s officially a woman. Kris was crying because she thought that they were getting back together. The kids were crying. It was crazy.”
At this point, only time will tell whether any of the rumors are true. Bruce, who has basically been emasculated throughout his entire marriage, said he simply wants to live the remainder of his life how he sees fit. “I’m in the last quarter of life,” Jenner told Kris on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” “I just want to live life the way I want.”
