What many of us  thought it was just another stunt to try and get those ratings, Bruce Jenner’s transition into a woman is as real as the medals he once earned as an Olympian.

As if drama isn’t enough with the Kardashian-Jenner clan, many thought Bruce Jenner a former track and field athlete turned television figure was just mumbling when rumors about a possible *** change began.

Media perhaps started to taking it seriously once his own mother Esther Jenner, opened up about the rumors last year.

The 88-year-old not only spoke about her son’s “true self” but also about her sentiment on his ex-wife Kris (née Houghton, previously Kardashian); Esther who resides in a rural Idaho home told MailOnline, she doesn’t like his effeminate appearance but will always love him adding that Kris had been very disrespectful to her and would bad mouth Bruce’s other children while praising her own. Her son– who is a step-parent to the Kardashian sisters –was married to Kris for 23-years.
