“The About Bruce special is about to come out this week,” Kardashian said in an on-camera interview at the time, in reference to the May KUWTK special that focused on Caitlyn’s (formerly known as Bruce) plan to transition. “Our emotions are incredibly raw in this special, and I think it’s high anxiety for all of us.”
“Kendall’s been all over the place,” continued Kardashian, 31. “I think keeping herself busy and occupying herself is good, but I also think you do have to address your problems.”
Kardashian, who has struggled with Caitlyn’s transition herself, then broaches the subject with her 19-year-old sister.
“I’m alright,” Kendall said of how she’s feeling. “I feel like it’s a process. It’s something to get used to, for sure. But the only thing is, I haven’t met her.”
“I haven’t either,” Kardashian replied. “I think that’s a process as well.”
“It’s also a letting-go thing,” Kendall continues. “It’s like when you officially meet her it’s like, he’s gone. I think that’s what I’m holding on to. That’s why I’ve taken so long to meet her.”
“It’s been a ride, for sure. It’s an adjustment. It’s something you have to get used to,” she said. “But I’ve known since I was a kid. He never confirmed it to me, but I’ve known for a very long time. It’s the same person. My dad says it herself sometimes, it’s kind of like mourning the loss of someone, because it is. My dad is my dad, but he’s not there physically anymore. But she lets me call her dad – that’s the last little piece of dad I’ve got.”
Sister Kim Kardashian West also recently opened up in a personal essay on her website about how she accepted Caitlyn’s transition after finding Caitlyn (then known as Bruce) “dressed up like a woman” 13 years ago.
“Is it weird for me? Yes, this person has been my stepdad for half my life,” wrote Kardashian West. “But life is just about being happy – that’s the one common denominator that everyone can understand.”
