After revealing he is transitioning from male to female, Bruce Jenner now focuses on creating a new existence as a woman. Subscribe now for instant access to the exclusive new details you didn’t see on TV and how Kris truly feels, only in PEOPLE.

Though both Chrystie Scott and Linda Thompson provided comment to Diane Sawyer for her bombshell interview with Bruce Jenner, in which he came out as transgender, Sawyer said in the interview that one of his former wives – Kris Jenner – had declined to comment.

Kris, 59, told a different story on Twitter. In response to a Tweet from Perez Hilton speculating about why Kris hadn't spoken for the special, Jenner wrote, in part, "no one asked me to comment."

A statement issued to PEOPLE on behalf of Kris Jenner attempted to clarify matters: "Kris does not have official representation but a message was left at her office and she was asked for fact checking. Kris said she was unable to respond because she had not seen the special. She did not say, 'No comment.' "

However, ABC is standing by Sawyer.

"ABC News sent an email to her publicity team more than once," reads a network statement released to PEOPLE. "They called and said no comment."

Kris Jenner Is 'Trying to Be a Good Friend' to Bruce, Kathie Lee Gifford Says

Originally posted 04/27/2015 06:00PM

Beyond her Tweet in which she called ex-husband Bruce Jenner a "hero" for his decision to move forward with transitioning into a woman, Kris has kept fairly quiet on the subject.

However, Kathie Lee Gifford spoke up in Kris' defense on Monday. A longtime friend of the Jenners, the Today host – along with her husband, Frank – is even a godparent to Kendall and Kylie.

During her 20/20 special, Sawyer said that Kris, 59, could not be reached for comment – a charge that the Kardashian-Jenner matriarch later denied on Twitter.

Bruce Jenner's First Wife Chrystie Scott on His 20/20 Interview: 'I Think It Was Cathartic for Him'

Originally posted 04/27/2015 09:25AM

Bruce Jenner's first wife, Chrystie Scott, has revealed the moment he opened up to her about his gender identity – calling it a "shock."

Scott, the mother of Jenner's two oldest children, was the first person the Olympic champion confided in, he admitted in his 20/20 interview on Friday night.

In the interview, Jenner told Diane Sawyer, "For all intents and purposes, I am a woman." In the days following the interview, which drew nearly 17 million viewers to ABC, Jenner's famous family members have spoken candidly with the media regarding his transition.

On Monday, Scott – who was married to Jenner from 1972 to 1981 – opened up to George Stephanopoulos during Good Morning America's 7 a.m. hour: "I can't remember the exact words because it was such a shock to me, but he opened up his heart and confessed, and he had to share this deep, dark secret," Scott told Stephanopoulos about her ex-husband's confession from their first year of marriage.

"He told me he wanted to be a woman, and understandably, I didn't know what to say."

Bruce Jenner opened up in an interview with Diane Sawyer on Friday, telling the world he was "born with the soul of a female."

However, there is one detail the former Olympian is still keeping to himself – his new name.

During his interview, Jenner wouldn't reveal his new name to Sawyer, saying "the media would go crazy."

"If someone started calling you a different name immediately you wouldn't answer to it," says Mary Andres, an associate professor at the Marriage and Family Therapy Program at the University of Southern California, who has not worked with Jenner.
