The full version of Kim Kardashian's post-Bruce-Jenner-interview interview has been released online (after we first saw a clip of her discussing the family's plan to go through therapy), meaning we get to hear more lovely things about her much she supports her step-dad. Hooray.
In the interview, Kim reveals that - while she may not fully understand his journey - she will support Bruce Jenner no matter what. "I don't know what life would be like if you always felt like you weren't yourself," she told Matt Lauer. "I know it's not something that you or I could really fully understand, but I don't even think we have to. As long as he is happy, and he wants to live his life, however he wants to live it, that just makes me happy. And I support him 100 percent." "I'm really happy for him that he is living his life the way he wants to live it," she continued, "and that he has found inner peace and just pure happiness. That's what life is about."
Kim also revealed that she and the rest of the Kardashians have put in a lot of time and hard work to ensure they deal with Bruce's transition with respect and understanding, attending family therapy and consulting GLAAD for guidance. She said: "We have been talking to people from the GLAAD Organization and others on, 'What do we call him? Do we say 'him' or 'her,' and how do we be respectful?' You just want to be supportive and respectful. Bruce really wants us to feel as comfortable as possible and take everything at our own pace and we love and respect him for that. Until this transition is done, we've learned that you refer to him as 'him'. He's been really, really good at explaining everything to us, even though it's really new. These have been newer feelings—not newer feelings for him, but for us to digest. He's done a really good job of walking us through it."

Kim also shot down any nonsense about Kris Jenner's rumoured lack of support for Bruce, firmly stating that the family is working together to ensure Bruce's longterm happiness. "I see reports that say, this one doesn't support him, and this one's over here, and my mom feels this way, and it's all really so made up," she said. "We all really support him. Is it a hard adjustment? Yes. There is every emotion you can possibly imagine. There were hundreds of family meetings. Say what you want about us, but we work out everything as a family. We have the best communication and we are so in-synch with each other. I love having so many siblings and such a supportive mom because each family member might be dealing with this in a different way, but we have each other to go through this experience with. And I'm very grateful for that." She concluded her interview by reassuring us all that Bruce is going to be okay, and that he's very much prepared for all the attention his brave announcement has attracted:
"He has waited almost 65 years to make this decision, and, whether he's kept it to himself or not, he's lived with it. I think that when you are finally ready to be your true self, then you're prepared for anything. I think he's ready for the challenges and ready to help other people's lives, who might be going through the same things that he's going through. And thats something he's really proud of and something that he is really read to take on. And I'm really proud of him for that."
