Kim Kardashian talks about meeting Bruce Jenner's female self.

“It was amazing and she looked beautiful, really beautiful.”

In a two-part special on Keeping Up With The Kardashians titled About Bruce, the Kardashian-Jenners are documented coming to terms with Bruce Jenner’s transition.

It’s not surprising that their reactions were filmed and it’s even less so that they were compiled into a very heavily publicised TV special. But what has surprised us is an interview Kim Kardashian did ahead of the special.

Kim, 34, told Access Hollywood that she has seen 65-year-old Bruce in a dress.

“It was amazing and she looked beautiful, really beautiful,” she said.

“She was dressed up, beautiful makeup, beautiful hair, very, very beautiful and very comfortable.”

Kim also told the Access Hollywood host that she knows Bruce’s female name, but won’t say what it is.

In the first part of the About Bruce special, there’s a scene where Kim and Bruce go through his closet, which is filled with female clothing – and try to find him some appropriate outfits. Bruce, at that point, tells Kim he has stolen her outfits before.

The special explored all of the children’s reactions to Bruce’s transgender status and heavily focused on the feelings of Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Kendall said she had seen Bruce in a dress before, but didn’t tell anyone because she didn’t want her family to break up.

“We would find things like makeup, and we thought he was having an affair at one point, and we didn’t know what to do. We didn’t want our family to be broken up, so we didn’t tell anybody.”

During the second part of the special, which has just aired in the US, Kendall posted an Instagram message to her dad to show her support for him.

The image, which she captioned ‘always’, is a series of stills from a home video of Kendall and Bruce when she was a baby.

The episode, more than anything else, showed that Bruce’s family is behind his decision completely. Which, really, is the only thing that actually matters.
