Linda Thompson Foster, Bruce Jenner’s second wife, reveals that Jenner told her the whole story while they were married.
After her divorce, she told her sons, Brody and Brandon, the truth about their daddy, adding that Bruce, who had gone on to marry Kris Kardashian and have two daughters, was not an attentive father.
“No birthday cards or phone calls, no “Merry Christmas,” no “Everything OK?” after the big Northridge earthquake. Brandon and Brody will never have those “Hallmark memories” of father-and-son moments. They were saddened by his lack of participation in their lives, and my heart ached for them. When Brandon asked me, “Mom, what kind of father doesn’t come to his son’s graduation?” I meekly replied, “Honey, your dad may have been the world’s greatest athlete physically, but emotionally, you have to view him in a wheelchair. If he had emotional legs, he’d get up and walk to you, but he just doesn’t right now. Just try to understand him, love and forgive him.”
Thompson also reveals the name Jenner has chosen for his life as a woman….HEATHER!
“Around that time Bruce considered traveling out of the country, possibly to Denmark, to have the gender-confirmation surgery and then come back to the U.S. identifying as female. I asked Bruce, “What about the children?” He thought maybe he could reenter their lives as “Aunt Heather.”
