It was kind of excruciating and dragged out. Long story short, he was cross-dressing from around 9 or 10, all three of his wives knew about the cross-dressing not necessarily the transgender part, though with the second that came out in therapy. He was actually on hormones for a few years in the 80s but then dropped it, wasn't really clear why except I guess he wasn't ready to go through with it. He told his oldest sister back in the 80s but they never spoke of it again until recently.
Family pretty much on board, Kris not surprisingly not really happy about it. Jenner said if she were able to be on board with it they might still be married.
Most of the kids are okay with it, his bio kids all are fine with it. Said Kim was the most okay with it.
Only thing I found surprising about the whole thing was that Jenner said that just being on the hormones seemed to ease the emotional turmoil he was experiencing.

TAN: his older sister, who has to be like 66-67 or so, looks fantastic for her age. She could pass for early 50s.

Oh, and for those concerned that lots of idiot parents were rushing to reassign the gender of their kids at any sign of non-gender conformity, a couple of psychiatrists were on who said they do often turn away people, so they aren't just willy-nilly reassigning kids. There is some evaluation that goes on.

i figured it had to be really boring to be that long. i'd probably start zoning out and surfing the ao even if i remembered to watch it.

We were watching something better at the time (recorded episodes of "Modern Family" and "Last Week Tonight"), and my wife's phone was blowing up with her circle of friends' texts and possibly facebook posts.

Sorry, it's just not that important to me.

Good for him. Some have to fight for their happiness much more than others do. Even if you're the greatest athlete in the world.
