There’s some sad family drama to be had for Brody Jenner. He revealed his thoughts about the way his father, Bruce, raised him on ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians,’ and he did not have many nice things to say!
Bruce Jenner might not be so happy about the fact that his son Brody Jenner joined the cast of Keeping Up With The Kardashians for season eight. On the June 9 episode, Brody confronts Bruce about his negative experience growing up with Bruce for a father, and Bruce isn’t quite ready for the confrontation.
Bruce Jenner ‘Wasn’t A Great Father’ To Brody Jenner
On the second episode of the new season of KUWTK, Brody goes out to lunch with Bruce, Kylie, Kendall, brother Brandon Jenner and his wife Leah, and sees the positive relationship Bruce has with his daughters.
“The way I see Bruce with Kendall and Kylie and Brandon, I’m actually so happy for them,” he says. “I think Bruce is an incredible human being and I think that Bruce is a great father; he just wasn’t a great father to me.” He admits he was the one child that didn’t have the greatest relationship with Bruce and he resents him for that.
Later in the episode, when he tries to confront Bruce about how he feels, Bruce simply brushes him off and says, “Now’s not the time to talk about it.” Ouch — it sounds like Bruce is avoiding a big problem!
Brody Jenner Receives Support From His Mother
Brody told Bruce it’s really interesting to see the way he interacts with the girls because it was something he wasn’t really used to, as Bruce wasn’t around much when Brody was growing up.
Brody’s mom, former pageant queen Linda Thompson, and Bruce split in 1984, the year after Brody was born. Since then, he and his brother Brandon were in Linda’s custody, rarely ever seeing Bruce.
Linda tweeted in support of Brody’s confrontation with Bruce on June 6.
“I commend Brody’s honesty,” she tweeted. “There is too much hypocrisy in the world.”
Brody And Bruce Jenner: Using ‘KUWTK’ To Reconcile
Now that Brody and Brandon will have more of a presence on the show, Khloe Kardashian said on The Talk on June 7 that it will be a chance to hopefully give them a chance to experience the love that she and her sisters have received from Bruce since he married Kris in 1991.
“He handled being our step-father so seamlessly and he was just so phenomenal with it,” she said. “He’s working on his relationship with his kids,” she then insisted.
Hopefully Bruce will be willing to talk about Brody’s feelings about his father’s presence in his life at some point during the show — we’d hate to see Brody be left out of the family!
Do you think Bruce will ever be able to have the serious conversation with Brody, HollywoodLifers?
