Bruce Jenner has made a statement about the transition to becoming a woman, telling “The View” that he’s “hoping for the best.”
The interview with “TheView” co-host Joy Behar took place at the end of an appearance on the show.
In the segment, Behar asked Jenner about his transition, and the topic was brought up again by host Joy Beyard.
“I will probably go into a different mode of thinking,” Jenner said.
“I will likely just say I’m going to transition to female.”
In the interview, Jenner also spoke about the difficulties of dealing with his parents’ death, the fact that he had to undergo gender reassignment surgery, and how the transition would impact his life in general.
“People don’t realize what it is to have to go through that,” Jenner told Behar.
“There’s not a lot of words.
I feel so sorry for my parents.
It’s so hard for me to even talk about it.
It was such a heavy loss to have their lives.”
He continued, “I had to go to the hospital for three days.
I had to get into a wheelchair.
I didn’t have the luxury of doing that before, but I got into that chair.
And it was so hard to even look at it, to even be able to feel it.
I’m like, ‘You know what, I need to get out of here.
I need a new life.'””
