Caitlyn Jenner has without a doubt managed to transition into being her authentic self beautifully. She has done all this while being under constant media scrutiny and in the celebrity spotlight.
But does the I Am Cait star miss her former life as Bruce Jenner?
During her first sit-down television interview, the 65-year-old former Olympian is asked by Ellen DeGeneres if there’s anything she ever misses about being Bruce. (The interview airs on DeGeneres’ show on Sept. 8.)
Watch a piece of that interview here, where Ellen asks Caitlyn what she misses about being Bruce:
“Do you miss Bruce?”, asks Ellen.
“Absolutely no,” she told the daytime host. “Because as a woman I can do all this fun stuff anyway. I can still play golf. I can still go race cars.”
DeGeneres cheekily then asked whether Caitlyn now hits balls from the women’s or men’s tees when playing golf. “I still play from the men’s tees,” Jenner admitted.
Before she came out as Caitlyn, the former Keeping Up With the Kardashians star revealed that, as Bruce, she used to wear a bra and pantyhose under her suit when she did motivational speaking engagements.
Jenner told DeGeneres that she was never afraid of getting caught. “I was always wearing a suit so they couldn’t really feel anything under,” she said. “I was very stealthy. I was good at this stuff. I would literally go back to the hotel room, cross dress, walk out around the hotel, and they never knew.”
Jenner said no one had ever recognised her while she was cross dressing. “They don’t expect me to be in that position,” she explained. “So, you can be a little more stealthy that way, because they would never in a billion years think that. So, I never got caught. I never had a problem.”
Jenner has spoken about wanting to be in a relationship and what that may look like. Although she is not ready to enter the dating world just yet, she has revealed what she may be looking for and from which gender.
“It would be very attractive to me to have a guy treat me like a woman,” she disclosed to her friend, adding, “Not make it this big trans thing or this or that. Just a normal relationship.”
Time will tell which way Caitlyn will choose to go. In the meantime we wish her continued success in her journey to becoming her authentic self.
