He used to be Mark Behar and now his name is Bruce Jenner. And when asked to explain why he did it, Mark (or let’s call him Bruce if he thinks that this name suits him more) could find nothing better to say than ‘to save the name’s heterosexual roots and to keep it alive’.
The Palm Beach actor said he wanted people to continue to associate the name with the Olympic medals Caitlyn Jenner won, when she was known by it. The new Jenner said he is against people thinking the medals were won by Caitlyn Jenner (wait a minute, then whom were they won by?).
He said: “This name once stood for America, and I just want to keep it alive. I’ve been seeing so many idols and athletes and icons die because of stupid stuff like drugs, die because of age … We’re losing icons. Were losing names. We’re losing people faster than we ever have. I am not anti-gay and I have no problem with him changing his sex, but the way he did it, in my mind it was not proper. It was all for hype.”
The new Bruce Jenner will be represented by TransMedia Group, by Tom Madden. Madden issued a statement saying: “We’re representing Mark who is now legally Bruce so the famous Bruce Jenner name will return to its heterosexual roots where our client believes it belongs instead of hanging around out with the likes of the Kardashians and getting into car accidents as Caitlyn.”
