Kris Jenner has been feuding with Bruce Jenner for months. Now, just days before his highly publicized interview with Diane Sawyer about his transition journey to becoming a woman, Kris is trying to reconcile with Bruce by having Kourtney Kardashian play mediator, reported Radar Online. And that reconciliation comes even as she reunites with her boyfriend Corey Gamble.
The attempt to end the feud took place at Bruce’s new exclusive Malibu home. As shown on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Jenner has felt estranged from his children as well as Kris since the divorce. Now Kourtney wants to bring together the family, said a source.
“Desperately trying to save her family, Kourtney has been playing mediator between Bruce and Kris because she is the only one that Bruce will listen to out of the three Kardashian girls,” revealed the insider.
But it’s not all due to Kourtney that Kris wanted to meet with Bruce. Now that she’s back with boyfriend Corey, who is 34 years old to Kris’s 59 years, Kris felt compelled to have a heart-to-heart meeting with Bruce prior to his April 24 Diane Sawyer interview, said the source.
“[Kris] wanted to let Bruce know that she is now fully supportive of his transition to and she also wants to be involved in the process. Kris thinks that she can help Bruce become the classy woman that he is looking to become because she sees herself as the epitome of class.”
As the Inquisitr reported, Bruce also has hired Mel Gibson’s public relations representative to guide him through the extensive publicity that he’s receiving as new details about his transition from male to female emerge. That media maven is entertainment PR counselor Alan Nierob, who also worked with Steve Martin, Liam Neeson, and Denzel Washington.
In addition, sources have revealed that Bruce plans to follow the Diane Sawyer interview with his sex-change operation. The date of that procedure is scheduled for the end of May to the start of June.
Although ABC has provided only glimpses of what will be revealed in the special entitled “Bruce Jenner: The Interview” with Diane Sawyer, sources have revealed Bruce’s plans to use a female name, reported Extra.
An insider revealed that Bruce’s most likely new name is Kaitlyn, and also that Kris was aware about Bruce’s female identification for years throughout their marriage.
In that two-hour 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer, on April 24 at 9 PM on ABC, Bruce reportedly will officially announce his transition. That interview was compiled from footage in various locations and took place over he course of a few days.
Bruce sums up how he feels succinctly.
“My whole life has been getting me ready for this,” said Jenner of his transition.
