It’s been in the headlines all day every day and today we bring you everything you need to know about Caitlyn Jenner, check it out…
Formerly known to the world as Bruce Jenner, husband to Kris and stepfather to the Kardashian clan, Bruce has since begun his transformation into a woman and the world was introduced to Caitlyn for the very first time.
The former Olympian graced the cover of Vanity Fair as a woman in a stunning shoot for Annie Leibovitz bringing the world to a standstill and sending Twitter into a viral frenzy.
Whilst most people were in shock over the sudden transformation others had other things going through their mind such as why his name doesn’t start with a ‘K’! After finally becoming a woman, Bruce revealed his name would be Caitlyn and would avoid the K circus opting out of joining Kris, Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Kendall and Kylie on the ‘K’ train.
In the first look at Bruce as a woman, the Keeping up with the Kardashians poses demurely in an ivory corset. Internationally renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz shot the first images of Jenner in her Malibu home for the upcoming issue accompanied by an article written by “Friday Night Lights” author Buzz Bissinger. The Vanity Fair cover will also include a 22-page story featuring stunning Annie Leibovitz photos of Caitlyn Jenner with a few sneak peek pics on set.
Caitlyn Jenner likened her emotional 2 day photo shoot to winning the gold medal for the decathlon at the 1976 Olympics. She tells Pulitzer Prize–winning V.F. contributing editor and author of Friday Night Lights Buzz Bissinger, “That was a good day, but the last couple of days were better. . . . This shoot was about my life and who I am as a person. It’s not about the fanfare, it’s not about people cheering in the stadium, it’s not about going down the street and everybody giving you ‘that a boy, Bruce,’ pat on the back, O.K. This is about your life.”
Jenner tells Bissinger about how she suffered a panic attack the day after undergoing 10-hour facial-feminization surgery on March 15—a procedure she believed would take 5 hours. She recalls thinking, “What did I just do? What did I just do to myself?” A counsellor from the Los Angeles Gender Center came to the house so Jenner could talk to a professional, and assured her that such reactions were often induced by pain medication, and that second-guessing was human and temporary.
For the Jenner children, the issue of the transition has become a non-issue. They were already aware of their father’s identity as a woman when he told them individually about the transition—Burt and Cassandra had learned from their mother roughly 20 years earlier, when they were 13 and 11; Brandon had assumed it because of the obvious physical changes he had observed; and Brody was told by his mother when he was 29. They tell Bissinger they feel happiness for their father and inspiration at his bravery, and they all still see their dad as their dad regardless of any gender label.
Despite the renewed relationship with their father, the Jenner children have refused to participate in Caitlyn’s docu-series for the E! Network.
Initially it was discovered that Caitlyn was “terribly disappointed and terribly hurt,” but has come to accept their decision. For her part, Caitlyn is prepared for the criticism that it’s a publicity stunt: “Oh, she’s doing a stupid reality show. She’s doing it for the money. She’s doing this, she’s doing that.’ I’m not doing it for money. I’m doing it to help my soul and help other people. If I can make a dollar, I certainly am not stupid. I have house payments and all that kind of stuff. I will never make an excuse for something like that. Yeah, this is a business. You don’t go out and change your gender for a television show. I don’t care who you are.”
“Bruce always had to tell a lie. He was always living that lie. Every day he always had a secret, from morning till night. If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, “You just blew your entire life.” Caitlyn said.
“Caitlyn doesn’t have any secrets. As soon as the Vanity Fair cover comes out, I’m free.”
