Bruce Jenner to star in a new reality show

E! on Monday  confirmed that reality TV star and Olympics gold-medalist Bruce Jenner will star in a new eight-part documentary series that will follow his transition from a male to a female. This documentary comes after Jenner’s recent tell-all-interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer, where he revealed his life-long struggle with his gender and being transgender. In the two-hour-long interview, Jenner, who has been married three times to three different women, says he regards himself as a woman.

“For all intents and purposes, I’m a woman,” says the father of 10.
He also reveals that he has “lived a lie his whole life about who he is” and that he can’t continue living that lie anymore.

 “My brain is much more female than it is male,” he added. “It’s hard for people to understand that, but that’s what my soul is.” ABC reported that for decades, Jenner’s ex-wives and sister kept the secret of his gender identity struggle and quotes Jenner’s ex-wife and mother of his two children, Chrystie Scott, in a statement saying:  “Someone who has lived 65 years of his life as the wrong gender has every right to live the last quarter of his life as his authentic self. I support him and so hope the world can too. I pray for his happiness for the rest of his journey.” The documentary series is set to premiere July 26.
