Kim nam tegenover Matt Lauer van de Today Show plaats om Bruce Jenners grote interview van afgelopen vrijdag - waarin hij voor het eerst zei: 'Ik ben een vrouw' - te bespreken.
Uiteraard staat ze helemaal achter de beslissing van haar stiefvader:
'I don't know what life would be like if you always felt like you weren't yourself. As long as he is happy, and he wants to live his life, however he wants to live it, that just makes me happy. And I support him 100 percent. I'm really happy for him that he is living his life the way he wants to live it. And that he has found inner peace and just pure happiness. That's what life is about.'
Verder laat Kim weten dat Bruce inderdaad nu nog met 'hem' en 'hij' aangeduid wil worden:
'Until that transition is done, we've learned that you do refer to him as "him".'
Verder laat ze weten dat alle nare mediaberichten over haar moeder en dat de familie niet achter Bruce zou staat, complete lariekoek is:
'Say what you want about us, but we work out everything as a family and we have the best communication and we are so in sync with each other. I love having so many siblings because each family member might be dealing with this in a different way, but we have each other.'
Tot slot denkt Kim dat Bruce met zijn verhaal een enorm verschil in de levens van andere mensen kan maken:
'I think he's ready for the challenge and ready to help other peoples' lives that might be going through the same things that he's going through and that's something that he's really proud of and something that he's ready to take on. And I'm really proud of him for that.'
