Jonathan Cheban Praises Bruce Jenner, Says He’s The ‘Belle Of The Ball’

While Jonathan doesn’t seem to know too many details about what’s going on, he definitely seems proud of the Olympian for coming out with the news. “I heard he’s really happier than ever and just…the belle of the ball!” the PR guru told Us Weekly.

On Sunday’s KUWTK, which was filmed before Bruce’s big Diane Sawyer interview in April, Jonathan confronted Kim about all the rumors because he was being asked by so many friends and family about them. Finally, the reality star came clean.

“It was weird,” Jonathan admitted. “I was like, I can’t lie to my mom anymore ’cause it’s weird. Pictures of Bruce with nail polish on…I just didn’t know what to say.”

Jonathan is a super close friend of the Kardashian family, so it’s great to see that he’s been so supportive of Bruce throughout this time. We definitely don’t doubt that Bruiser is the belle of the ball!

Bruce Jenner Completes Sex Change Surgery To Become A Woman?

Although Bruce has been pretty open about most of what he’s going through, one thing he hasn’t made clear is when he’s going to make his official change into a woman, surgery and all. On a recent KUWTK episode, he said it might happen in the spring, but had no date set at the time.

But on May 26, a shocking report from RadarOnline.com claimed that the 65-year-old had already had the operation done! “The procedure involved reshaping Bruce’s male genitalia into that of a woman,” the site reported. “He was very happy with the results, but didn’t realize how grueling the recovery would be.”

However, a source close to Bruce told HollywoodLife.com that every detail in the report was a “complete fabrication.” Looks like we’ll have to keep waiting for an official announcement!

HollywoodLifers, do you think Bruce will be the belle of the ball, like Jonathan said?!
