It may be hard to believe, but it’s been two years now since Caitlyn Jenner first announced to the world that she’s a transgender woman, courtesy of a Diane Sawyer interview.
Well, last night she had another chat with Diane, and the new revelations she made are nearly as shocking.
For instance, Caitlyn revealed that she really doesn’t talk to many of her children anymore — including the Kardashians.
“Some I have remained very close to,” she explained. “A couple of them … I’m a little more distant.”
“I have to admit, I’ll sit here and wonder, ‘Is it because of my transitioning? Or is because their life is so busy that they don’t call, like, all the time?'”
We have to imagine that she’s “a little more distant” with Khloe, who’s had big issues with Caitlyn ever since she announced her transition.
There’s also a chance that Caitlyn doesn’t hear from any of the Kardashians, since Kris Jenner is obviously feeling very attacked by Caitlyn these days.
“Nobody calls that much,” Caitlyn admitted in the interview. “I mostly reach out to them. Obviously, the Jenner side calls more, but they all have their own lives.”
Isn’t that the saddest thing you ever heard?
Hold on, because it just gets worse.
She also talked about her famous Vanity Fair cover, the world’s first introduction to Caitlyn Jenner, and how her children felt about it.
“I know my kids, they thought, ‘You know what, it’s a little too much,'” she said. “But, from my standpoint, I had suffered for 65 years. To have a beautiful shot of my authentic self was important.”
“I wanted to end the old Bruce, my old life, and that picture did it.”
And it worked — these days, she’s “Happy, peaceful, I have peace in my soul. All of that confusion has left me.”
The confusion was real, as you can imagine.
She revealed that before she transitioned, she put specific instructions in her will that when she died, “when I’m buried, I wanted to be dressed as her. Because that’s the way I was going to heaven.”
As for settling down again, Caitlyn isn’t too into the idea — and understandably so, considering how some of her marriages have ended.
“I don’t see really even dating in my future,” she explained. “I have not been approached. I’ve never been out on date [in two years].”
“I just have a lot of friends. My life revolves around my kids.”
But the interview wasn’t all talk about love and family. At one point, Caitlyn got political.
She said that she did vote for Trump — which isn’t a surprise — because she thought that he’d do a good job with the LGBT community. How she thought that, we have no idea, but it happened.
But, like countless other Americans, she’s regretting her vote.
“This administration for me, it was extremely, extremely disappointing. Here’s the deal breaker with the Republican party and the deal breaker is, you mess with my community, you don’t give us equality and a fair shot, I’m coming after you.”
So it sounds like Caitlyn is doing well these days, huh? She seems very settled in her new life, and very happy.
