Kris Jenner called her ex-husband Bruce Jenner a "hero" after his 20/20 special with Diane Sawyer, but she reportedly wasn't as open with ABC.

During the broadcast, Sawyer said that ABC reached out to all of Bruce Jenner's ex-wives and Kris told them she had no comment.

Kris later tweeted that "no one asked [her] to comment," but an ABC source tells ET that the network made multiple requests for interviews and statements from Kris.

All of Jenner's ex-wives were the subject on Monday's The Talk.

"I think they are a good example of how we should be with family members even if we don't understand them," co-host Aisha Tyler shared on the daytime talk show.

Kim Kardashian told Today that the family is dealing with Jenner's transition in family therapy. While she admitted that it will be a hard adjustment, she acknowledged that "We all really support him."

ET caught up with Jenner's second wife, Linda Thompson at LAX, where she told us, "I'm happy for Bruce. I thought it was amazing. It was so beautifully done. Diane Sawyer is a queen. She's elegant and smart and sensitive. It's really wonderful. I hope he's potentially saving lives."

Jenner's first wife Chrystie Scott watched the special with Bruce on Friday and she admitted that it was tough for her.

"It broke my heart for him," she told Good Morning America. "It was sad. I think it was cathartic to watch it together. It was pretty intense."

In the interview, Bruce made the highly anticipated announcement regarding his gender identity.

"My brain is much more female than it is male," Jenner said. "For all intents and purposes, I am a woman ... People look at me differently. They see [me] as this macho male but my heart and soul and everything that I do in life is a part of me -- that female side is part of me, it's who I am. I was not genetically born that way. As of now I have all the male parts and all that kind of stuff. In a lot of ways we're different but we still identify as female. And that's very hard for Bruce Jenner to say, because why? I don't want to disappoint people."
