Bruce Jenner has the support of Linda Thompson, and Chrystie Crownover, his first two wives. According to E! News, the father of six was spending time with his exes, both of whom have come to his side during this difficult yet liberating moment in his life. Bruce was married to Chrystie from 1972 until 1981. He married Thompson in 1981, but the two split in 1986. A picture of the three was posted on Instagram by Chrystie days after Bruce’s exclusive interview with Diane Sawyer.
The photo (below) shows the three smiling together, which is actually quite nice. It seems as though Bruce really cherishes these relationships, and he is still great friends with his ex-wives.
While Bruce Jenner, Linda Thompson, and Chrystie Crownover are hanging out and having fun together, there is one person who seems completely absent from Bruce’s life at this point — his most recent ex-wife, Kris Jenner. Not only did she not participate in his Diane Sawyer interview, but Kris has been lying low this week. She did not post any nostalgic, uplifting messages about her ex on Instagram.
On the day the interview aired, Kris tweeted out one message.
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.

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Kris’ best friend, Kathie Lee Gifford, said that Bruce’s news was completely shocking to Kris. Although many people have a hard time believing that, this could be the reason why Kris isn’t saying too much. There are also people who feel as though Kris is angry because Bruce is taking the spotlight off of her and her kids. She has been plugging Keeping Up with the Kardashians quite a bit and has been showing support for her daughters, who have been really thriving in the world, but hasn’t said much else about Bruce at all.
Bruce Jenner is lucky to have people like Linda Thompson and Chrystie Crownover in his life. According to People Magazine, Linda wrote an open letter of sorts for the Huffington Post, in which she praised Bruce and encouraged others not to judge him.
“It’s impossible for those of us who are comfortable living in our own skin to fully grasp what an imprisonment that must feel like to be born into the wrong body. Bruce has already ‘gone through the fire’… it is certainly not our place to judge him or others who may feel trapped, ostracized, or alone.”
