  • Bruce Jenner Talks About Becoming 'Her'

    ABC News(NEW YORK) -- Bruce Jenner spoke for the first time about how he is ready to put a lifetime struggle with gender identity behind him -- embrace being transgender and live the rest of his life as a woman.

    “I’m actually really excited about the future ... about what I could do to be able to do some real good in the world, so I’m actually, for the first time in my life, looking forward to the future,” Jenner told ABC’s Diane Sawyer in an exclusive interview that aired Friday in a two-hour special edition of ABC News’ 20/20.

    During the interview, Jenner referred to himself using male pronouns and ABC News has chosen to follow his lead, though he also referred to himself as “Bruce” and “her.”

    Jenner said he was excited and nervous about the transition that is already underway.

    “Some people will get it, some people won’t get it, it’s OK,” Jenner said. “It’s going to take a lot of guts the next few months to go through this, especially just doing it publicly.”

    Jenner has long hair again and is taking female hormones, saying “just kind of takes the edge off.”

    In regards to full surgery, the transgender community asks that everyone respect others’ privacy and to steer away, but Jenner was open to taking about his decision in his interview with Sawyer, saying he has not decided anything yet and “Those things are all things that are out in the future for me to explore.”

    Though any steps forward would include at least a year living as a woman as well as references, and even though Jenner said he already has those referrals.

    Jenner showed Sawyer a closet of women’s clothes and told her how he hosts “girls' nights” at home with the curtains drawn. Jenner also plans to change his gender identity on his driver’s license.

    Jenner has received love and support from family and friends, who said it will be an adjustment.

    “I asked him, you know, ‘What do you want us to call you?’” said Jenner’s oldest daughter, Cassandra Marino. “And he just interrupted me and just said, ‘I’m Dad. You know, you can call me dad… I will always be your dad.’ And that was just a huge relief.”

    Brody Jenner said: “I think all the traits that I loved about Bruce, she still has."

    Complete Coverage: Bruce Jenner -- The Interview

    ABC News reached out to Kris Jenner for this report, but she declined to comment.

    Jenner’s fashion style will be more “conservative” than his famous stepdaughter Kim Kardashian, and he said he will change his name, though he joked that his new moniker will not start with a “K.”

    A perfect day, Jenner said, would be to have just “an ordinary day that she can go out and enjoy herself, and not have any lies, have a great lunch, ... not being harassed by people, being accepted by society.”

    “I just like blending in,” Jenner added. “That’s all I want to do is just blend in.”

    As for getting married again, now that this path of transition has started, Jenner isn’t sure.

    “I can’t even figure that side of it out,” Jenner said. “I just want to have a free soul, and have a lot of great friends.”

    “I’m going to learn a lot in the next year,” Jenner added. “2015 is going to be quite a ride."

  • How Bruce Jenner Told His Children About His Transition

    ABC News(NEW YORK) -- For years, Bruce Jenner’s relationships with his famous children have been documented for the reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

    Recently, however, their typically breezy conversations took a decidedly more personal turn, when the former Olympian opened up to them about his gender transition.

    “I tried to explain to them that. ... ‘As much of your upbringing was her much as it was the he side, that I will always be there. I’m not going anywhere,’” Jenner told ABC’s Diane Sawyer in an exclusive interview that aired Friday in a special edition of 20/20.

    During the interview, Jenner referred to himself using male pronouns and ABC News has chosen to follow his lead, though he also referred to himself as “Bruce” and “her.”

    Still, Jenner’s openness was met by his kids with tears, concern and love. There were also questions, including, ‘Should we still call you ‘Dad’?”

    "Those are the only ones I’m concerned with and… I can’t let myself hurt them,” Jenner said.

    Jenner has six biological children: Burt and Cassandra with his first wife Chrystie Scott, Brandon and Brody with his second wife Linda Thompson, and Kendall and Kylie with his third wife Kris Jenner. Jenner also played an integral role in raising Kris’s four children from her first marriage, Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Robert Kardashian.

    Each had a different reaction:

    Burt:
    Jenner’s eldest was supportive, but he also admitted that he’s struggled with the news. “It’s hard for me. He’s always answered his phone, you know, ‘What are you doin’ big guy?’ ‘Well, nothin’ big guy!’” he said. “And now, you know, do I ever-- would you ever call a female ‘big guy’? No you would not.”

    Cassandra: Cassandra met her father’s admission with concern. Worried that she was losing the parent she knew, she felt “huge relief” when Jenner said that she should still call him “dad.” “Dad said… ‘It’s not that I’m trying to dress up like a woman. It’s that I’ve spent my whole life dressing like a man,’” she recalled. “I just held his hand and I cried with him and I just told him how proud of him I was and how inspired I was.”

    Brandon: Brandon, Jenner’s third-born and an expectant father himself, was the first child Jenner told that he was struggling with gender identity.

    “Brandon is kind of like our little Gandhi,” Jenner explained. “He’s got this soul that’s just wonderful.”

    Brandon understands the transition might not be “easy,” and he and his siblings are rallying around their dad. “There’s a thread throughout his whole life of, you know, a life that he was longing to live, really. And, you know, when you’re that close with somebody, you see little clues, you know, no matter what,” he said. “I feel like I’m getting an upgraded version of my dad, of a parent.”

    “I’m just honored and more proud than ever to be a part of the family,” Brandon said.

    Brody: Jenner admitted that he wasn’t always a very attentive father, especially in the years when he was struggling most with his gender identity, which is when Brody was a young child. Brody, his fourth child, took that especially hard. Having this conversation, Brody said, really helped him better understand what was going on during those years. “The first thing I thought was just like, 'It finally makes sense,’” he said.

    Kendall and Kylie: Jenner’s youngest two actually caught their father trying on in a dress well before he talked to them about his gender transition. “They had their computer on that security mode, so any time someone walked in the room, the camera turned on because Kendall thought Kylie was stealing clothes from her,” Jenner explained. “They came home and turned on their computer and ‘oh my God.’” However, the Olympian’s discussion about the transition was still a tearful one. “They are very protective of me,” Jenner explained. “They don’t want anybody to hurt dad."

    In a joint statement to ABC News, Kendall and Kylie Jenner said, “We love our dad very much as he is an amazing father. We couldn’t ask for a better dad. He has the biggest heart and all we want for him is to be happy. If he’s happy, we’re happy.”

    The Kardashians: Kim, who also once caught Jenner in a dress, was the first of the Kardashian children to know. After she initially brushed him off, the reality TV star became much more understanding after her husband, Kanye West, discussed with her the importance of being true to one’s self.

    “They were talking about it and he says to Kim, ‘Look, I can be married to the most beautiful woman in the world, and I am. I can have the most beautiful little daughter in the world. I have that. But I’m nothing if I can’t be me ... if I can’t be true to myself they don’t mean anything,’ … and since then, Kimberly has been by far the most accepting, and the easiest to talk to,” Jenner said.

    She’s also encouraged Jenner to really embrace his new image. “[She said], ‘Girl, you gotta rock it baby. You gotta look good! If you’re doing this thing, I’m helping you. You’re representing the family. You gotta look really good,’” Jenner said.

    Also in Jenner’s camp is Kourtney, though she did have questions about what to tell her three small children about Jenner’s new life.

    And of all the Kardashians, Khloe has had the toughest time with Jenner’s transition. “She’s had a lot of losses in her life,” he said, citing the death of Khloe’s father and the breakup of her marriage. “She feels likes there’s this massive… ‘my whole life is falling apart,’ you know, ‘it’s my dad,’ and I try to explain… but I’m not going anywhere. I’m still going to be there for you."

    When reached by ABC News for this report, Kim Kardashian declined to comment. Kourtney, Khloe and Rob Kardashian did not respond to ABC News’ requests for comment.

    ABC News also reached out to Kris Jenner for this report, but she declined to comment.

  • “Grey's Anatomy” Star Patrick Dempsey Reveals What's Next for Him

    ABC/Adam Taylor(NEW YORK) -- After Grey's Anatomy killed off Patrick Dempsey's character, Dr. Derek Shepherd, a.k.a. McDreamy, the 49-year-old actor spoke to Entertainment Weekly about what next for him.

    First, Dempsey has two projects he's working on, The Limit and Fodors, along with taking the "rest of the year off to develop."

    He said, "I would like to be a producer. I would commit to a show that is 10 to 12 episodes. But 24 [episodes] again, I don’t know if I would do that. It’s a very hard life. It’s financially rewarding but there comes a point where how much is enough, really?”

    Then, there's home life, where Dempsey is focusing on "being a father to my children," who include a daughter, Talula, and twin sons, Sullivan and Darby.

    Finally, he has his racing. In fact, he was training overseas when the shocking episode aired Thursday night.

     



    Dempsey added that he knew his fate on Grey's probably back in February or March.

    When it comes to the end of an era, he said, "Shepherd is a beloved character. People don’t want to lose him. ... But it goes on, and it will evolve."

  • Bill Murray, Danny McBride, Anthony Bourdain Spend Night at the Ballpark

    Photo by Taylor Hill/Getty Images(CHARLESTON, S.C.) -- Danny McBride and Anthony Bourdain are making the most of their time in Charleston, South Carolina.

    Thursday evening, McBride, who's in town shooting a new series, Vice Principals, and Bourdain, who met with local chef Sean Brock, joined South Carolina local Bill Murray for a Charleston RiverDogs game.

    "Bill owns a piece of the team, and Bill said, 'I'm going to the ballgame,' so they all agreed to go," Dave Echols, the general manager of the minor league team, told ABC News.

    Murray, who attends RiverDogs games regularly, usually sits with the fans, Echols said, but because they were filming, the group sat in one of the suites. There, Echols said, the group likely was sent concession items unique to the ballpark.

    "We probably took them a beer shake ... [and] a brisket ramen noodle bowl," Echols said. "I think we gave them a foot-long corn-dog wrapped in bacon."

    As if the concession items weren't enough, the group also got to see a win, as the RiverDogs beat the Savannah Sand Gnats 4-2.
