Kris Jenner’s close pal Kathie Lee Gifford has spoken out on on Kris’ behalf defending her friend Kris on “Today” revealing that Kris Jenner is “trying to be a good friend to Bruce Jenner,” according to a Monday, April 27 report from People. Kathie Lee and her husband Frank have been longtime friends of the Jenners, the couple are even the godparents to Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
Per the norm Kris Jenner has been getting slammed by media for her alleged constant bad treatment of Bruce Jenner, before and after Bruce made his transition reveal publicly during a interview with Diane Sawyer. Kris however on this occasion has pretty much remained closed mouth on the subject of Bruce Jenner’s transition into a woman. Kris however, did tweet following the interview calling Bruce Jenner a “hero” for his decision to move forward with his transition.
Media networks began calling Kris Jenner out following the Bruce Jenner/Diane Sawyer interview after Diane Sawyer made a closing statement stating that Kris Jenner, 59, could not be reached for comment. Kris also denied this statement as false claiming that she was not asked to comment. It is not known at this time as to whether or not this statement is true or false. Media sources claim that it is very unlikely that Kris Jenner was not asked for comment, considering that both of Bruce’s other ex-wives spoke out.
Kathie Lee stated, “the other [wives], both fine women, had a long time to get used to this,” said Gifford, 61. “This was new to Kris. She’s trying to get her act together. She’s trying to be a good friend to him. Trying to still be a good parent. And it’s complicated in ways that we cannot even comprehend.” Gifford also revealed that Bruce Jenner called her directly one week before the interview aired to tell her what it was that he was going to be saying. “I am grateful for that because we all want to know how to go forward,” she explained. “We all want to love him through this.”
Kris Jenner is not the only one having issues with adjusting t the changes Bruce Jenner has brought upon the family’s lives throughout his transition. As previously reported, Kim Kardashian revealed that the entire family has made many adjustments and there are many more to be made, but that despite them all attending therapy they are all very supportive of Bruce Jenner and wish him happiness. Do you believe that Kris Jenner was overlooked by Diane Sawyer for comment, or is did she just not have the words at the time?
