Bruce Jenner and his ex wives are revealing new details on their marriage. Linda Thompson, Chrystie Crownover, and Kris Jenner have followed up Jenner’s long-awaited interview with Diane Sawyer by dishing about what really happened behind the walls of their homes and what they knew. And for Chrystie, watching Jenner’s interview proved to be a relief and a revelation, reported Us Weekly.
Married to Jenner in the 1970s, Crownover had two sons with the Olympic athlete, Casey and Burt Jenner. She watched the interview with Bruce and his family.
“[It] was kind of surreal,” reflected Chrystie. “It was great because the family was together and that’s what I’m most proud of.”
But she felt heartbroken watching Bruce’s anguish at times, as he observed himself revealing the secrets that he had kept so deeply hidden for so long.
“I know it’s been painful for him. I know it’s been a torment in his life. It broke my heart for him… I think it was cathartic to watch it together. It was pretty intense.”
In addition, Bruce’s second wife Linda Thompson is now revealing that she also shielded Jenner’s transgender secrets, reported the New York Daily News.
“Bruce came to me one day with a very somber look on his face and said, ‘There’s something about me that I really need to tell you, something you need to know.’ Bruce told me that he identified as a woman.”
And although Linda located a gender dysphoria specialist, the marriage ended when Bruce made the decision to take female hormones and have gender reassignment surgery, revealed Thompson.
As for Kris Jenner, she joined Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Khloe Kardashian, and Kourtney Kardashian in posting her pride in Bruce on social media, as the Inquisitr reported.
“Not only was I able to call him my husband for 25 years and father of my children, I am now able to call him my hero,” posted Kris.
More from Bruce Jenner’s ex-wives may be revealed in the upcoming E network documentary series, which will feature the transition journey from man to woman, reported Variety.
In addition to Jenner, transgender experts will participate in the documentary. As to which of the stepchildren and children will be involved, it’s not yet known. However, a hint may have been dropped by Kylie Jenner.
“You will hear what I have to say when I’m ready to but this isn’t about me,” tweeted Kylie on the night on which Jenner’s special aired.
The documentary is scheduled to launch this summer.
