Dr. Phil appeared on Jimmy Kimmel’s late night talk show, April 22 and didn’t hold back when the host asked him what he thought of the 65-year-old transitioning from male to female!
We hope Bruce Jenner wasn’t watching Jimmy Kimmel Live when Dr. Phil totally slammed his transition! The reality star is going through a very public and emotional moment in his life and his highly anticipated tell-all with ABC’s Diane Sawyer is set to air April 24 but Dr. Phil doesn’t sound too disappointed that he wasn’t the one to land the interview. In fact, he made fun of Bruce’s very personal journey.
Dr. Phil Disses Bruce Jenner’s Transition: He’s Too Old
“I was wondering if it breaks your heart that Bruce Jenner is going to speak to Diane Sawyer on Friday night instead of coming to your show,” Jimmy asked Dr. Phil.
“It would be boring to talk to me about that,” Dr. Phil said. “First off, I would say, ‘Look. If it’s what you want to do … do it! What the hell’s it matter what anybody else thinks?’ That would be my point. That would the first 30 seconds and I guess we’d spend the next hour and fifty nine minutes saying, ‘You’re almost 80, what’s the point?’ This is a theoretical exercise, right? I don’t know. He’s kind of like past prime for like … right?”
Jimmy then said: “He’s an olympic gold medalist I would put anything past him. I mean he may be a champion in the bed as well.”
Dr. Phil did manage to try and recover a bit by adding: “I’ll tell you what, he’s a hell of a nice guy.”
Bruce’s Big Interview With ABC’s Diane Sawyer — New Trailer Released
ABC keeps releasing trailers to promote the upcoming 20/20 interview with Bruce and Diane and the latest is the most telling of all.
“It’s going to be an emotional roller coaster, but somehow I’m going to get through it,” Bruce says. “I want to know how this story ends, you know? How does my story end?”
