To say Bruce Jenner's Keeping Up With Kardashians special was an emotional roller coaster is an UNDERSTATEMENT!
And apparently, Kim Kardashian West and clan are extremely grateful for the outpouring of support they received from viewers nationwide.

On Tuesday, a family source revealed:
"They are all relieved and so overwhelmed by the positive reaction from the public. The girls have come a long way since the special was taped, but having it air was therapeutic."
We can only imagine!
It's crazy to think that it was only a few weeks ago that Bruiser bared his heart and soul to Diane Sawyer — and 17 million viewers! But the celebutantes made sure to thank their fans — like this particularly sweet back-and-forth (below) between Kim and actress, Mia Farrow:
Though the two part special didn't necessarily bring in the major ratings — the show was certainly a beautiful display of familial love.
Especially, when Bruce and his ex-wife, Kris Jenner had their highly anticipated sit down. It seems the nation was particularly touched at their very candid conversation from Monday's episode. We know we were!
A source conveyed:
"It was on a Sunday and Bruce out of the blue called Kris and said he was coming over. There wasn't the usual Keeping Up With the Kardashians crew available, so in order to document their talk, they hustled to get a camera and sound guy they've been working with for years, who are like part of the family."
Whoa! Talk about a real moment.
We're happy the family has come to terms with Bruce's transition and we're wishing them all the very best!
(From Perez: Bruce stated in the interview with Diane Sawyer to use "he" and "him" so we will do so in our coverage until that changes.)
