Kris Jenner Responds to 'No Comment' Accusations as ABC Stands by Bruce Jenner Special

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."

"Mr. Shue, are you driving?" the doctor asked.
