Those curious about recent changes in Bruce Jenner's appearance might soon have an answer.
According to US Weekly, Bruce and Kris Jenner will address the changes in an upcoming episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
“Bruce and Kris address his changing appearance in a scene they shot together,” a source told US Weekly. "It will be a plotline.”
Jenner has drawn increased media scrutiny over the past few years as he's grown out his hair, sported manicures and flashed diamond earrings.
US Weekly says the former Olympian is speaking up in response to the cover of the latest issue of In Touch magazine, which screamed “Bruce's Story: My Life as a Woman,” accompanied by a Photoshopped picture of Jenner in full makeup.
Shockingly, annoying British comic Russell Brand emerged as a voice of reason after the magazine hit the stands.
“This is bullying. Stop. Stop. Bruce Jenner is a human being,” he said on his YouTube channel. “If you want to learn more about transgender issues, look at GLAAD.org.”
