It sounds like the Jenner women weren’t as blindsided by Bruce Jenner‘s decision to transition as the rest of the world was. In Kendall Jenner‘s September issue of Vogue, she opened up about the first time she saw her father Bruce in women’s clothing, and noted that her mother has known about his cross-dressing since their third date.
Although the cover issue is all about Kendall, halfway through the interview they took a trip to Kris‘ house, where she naturally became a part of the discussion.
After her mother left the room to fetch some brownies, Kendall opened up about Bruce. “At one point Kylie and I thought he was cheating on my mom, because he had makeup and nail polish. One time we found those squishy boob things. We found wigs. And then one time I actually ran into her. In this house. She had no idea. She would wake up really early just so she could dress up and move around the house and get that little kick for the morning, and then go back to being Bruce—take us to school, totally normal. So one morning I woke up at 4:00 a.m. so thirsty, came downstairs into the kitchen, and grabbed a bottle of water. And as I was coming back out, my dad was coming down the stairs in, like, a wig and makeup and shoes—the full nine. And she didn’t see me. I literally froze. Please don’t turn left. Because she could either turn left or turn right. Thank God she turned right and—to this day!—has no idea that happened. That was the first time I had ever seen her.”
Right before Kris came back into the room, Kendall said “My mom knew. She knew since their third date.”
