Bruce Jenner


Bruce Jenner is ready to talk.

On Monday, ABC News announced that Bruce Jenner: The Interview, a 2-hour special with Diane Sawyer, will air Friday, April 24 at 9 p.m. ET.
According to a press release, this exclusive sit-down will be "far-ranging," so we'll hopefully get to hear Bruce's take on a variety of topics.

In December 2014, Bruce and wife Kris Jenner's divorce was finalized. The exes, who have two biological children together (Kendall Jenner, 19, and Kylie Jenner, 17) reiterated what they've said since news of their separation first went public: They remain committed to the family life they've built together.

"Even though we are separated, we will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our number one priority," Kris and Bruce said in a statement.

Bruce, 65, remains involved in the lives of his former step-children (Kris' biological children): Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian and Rob Kardashian. He also has four adult children from previous relationships: Casey Jenner, Burt Jenner, Brody Jenner and Brandon Jenner, whose wife Leah Jenner is expecting the couple's first child.

Although the former Olympian had been living separately from Kris in a Malibu pad towards the end of their marriage, the more formal separation was perhaps not as easy as the family would've liked. During an episode of Keeping of the Kardashians (season 9), Bruce admitted to feeling "pretty lonely," telling Kourtney, "Sometimes I feel so separated you know? The Kardashians over here, the Jenners over here, little me in the middle. We've got to keep the family going."

Bruce was reminded just how precious that family is to him earlier this year; in February, he was involved in a fatal car crash on Malibu's Pacific Coast Highway. One woman was killed and five others were injured after the SUV Jenner was driving rear-ended the Lexus in front of him, causing the Lexus to hit the Prius in front of it and spin into oncoming traffic.

"My heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loved ones, and to all of those who were involved or injured in this terrible accident," Jenner told E! News following the incident. "It is a devastating tragedy and I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them. I will continue to cooperate in every way possible."

Bruce Jenner: The Interview airs Friday, April 24, at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
