The Ex Isn’t Always the Worst
It seems like this generation of TV viewers has a weird obsession with the Kardashian family. Ex-Olympian Bruce Jenner, who was married to Kris Kardashian, is not free from the obsession. Jenner has made headlines in the last few weeks as he undergoes gender reassignment surgery. On Friday, April 24th, Jenner made further headlines as he sat down with Diane Sawyer to discuss his life and what he plans for the future. Bruce has received some negative comments from people who believe he should have made this transition a private matter. For every 2 people who have negative comments about Bruce, there are easily 20 people at his defense. Days after the eye-opening interview Bruce Jenner’s ex-wife Linda Thompson wrote a letter to Huffington Post to reveal her role in Bruce’s story to self realization. As The Hollywood Reporter puts it, Linda knew of Bruce’s struggles long ago. It is easy to see that it was more difficult for her to come to terms with Bruce’s decision while she was married to him, but has seemed to come to very peaceful and supportive terms as of lately. Thompson went on to say that she would not have married Bruce had she known about his true feelings. It is hard to say if Bruce would have gone through this transition sooner had he been more open to his then wife by telling her. While the past is in the past, Linda Thompson is only excited for Bruce’s future. Fan Susan McGalla is with Linda on this one, whatever makes him happy.
