I haven’t commented on the Bruce Jenner Interview because, well, we were gone almost as soon as it aired. But I did watch it, and I was impressed; it was less sensationalistic and tabloid-y than the first couple of ads made it seem.
But one thing annoyed me …
Diane Sawyer noted that ABC had reached out to all of Bruce’s ex-wives for a comment, and the first two, Chrystie Jenner and Linda Thompson, had lovely things to say. Then Diane said That Woman had “No comment.”
Well, That Woman was enraged and got into a TwitFight with Perez Hilton after he Tweeted:
“Kris Jenner has no comment for ABC news and the #BruceJennerinterview. His other two ex-wives give supportive statements.”
That Woman replied:
“@PerezHilton f–k you Perez no one asked me to comment ….and I’msitting with Bruce now watching this show so let’s keep it real…LOL….”
And then she Tweeted this:
“Not only was I able to call him my husband for 25 years and father of my children, I am now able to call him my hero.”
Nice, except then we learned That Woman was not sitting with Bruce as the interview aired; he was watching the show with his first wife so, um, yeah, That Woman is a liar.
Then she commented that ABC never asked her to comment on the interview, which seems odd that ABC wouldn’t ask her opinion of the story that her ex-husband was coming out as transgender when every single news source in this country asks That Woman to comment every time anything happens in Kardastrophe Town.
Now, Diane Sawyer has doubled-down on her claim that ABC contacted That Woman and got a “no comment” and ABC News is backing up Sawyer.
A statement issued to PEOPLE on behalf of Kris Jenner attempted to clarify matters:
“Kris does not have official representation but a message was left at her office and she was asked for fact checking. Kris said she was unable to respond because she had not seen the special. She did not say, ‘No comment.’ ”
However, ABC is standing by Sawyer:
“ABC News sent an email to her publicity team more than once. They called and said no comment.”
That Woman is a boldfaced liar. When Kash Kow dyed her hair blond, That Woman released a statement. When people question Khloe’s ass That Woman releases a statement. When That Woman uses the toilet she alerts the media, and she expects anyone to believe that she was never asked to comment on the Bruce Jenner Interview?
