This is the moment that Bruce Jenner has been waiting for his entire life. The former gold medal Olympian and Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has made his debut as a woman named Caitlyn on the cover of Vanity Fair this month.
Kris Jenner's ex-husband sat down with writer Buzz Bissinger for the emotional interview with the magazine. The cover was shot by celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz. The photoshoot was taken inside Jenner's Malibu home.
Caitlyn tells the mag, "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."
A special docuseries following Jenner's transformation as Caitlyn will air on the E! channel this summer. The full Caitlyn interview is available in this month's issue of Vanity Fair on newsstands on Tuesday, June 9th.
While many of the Kardashians are Jenner support during this transitional moment in his life, not everyone is taking things in stride. According to the Mirror last Monday, daughter Kylie Jenner admitted that she is going through a very rough stage in her life right now.
She said, "I feel like I go through these times where I hate my life. My sisters keep trying to push me to talk about things but I don't really want to talk to anyone else right now" before her sister Kendall added, "Kylie and I are handling [Bruce's transition] differently. Kylie does bottle up her emotions."
Jenner himself has added that things haven't been going well between him and his daughter lately, too.
He said during an interview with the camera, "Kylie's the one we're really worried about. ... She's having a hard time dealing with this. I do everything I can to try to stay in touch but she doesn't want to talk about it. She's just shut me out lately."
Jenner added, "My big concern is just that we've had such a close relationship for so many years and my kids are everything to me. ... I don't want her to go away, emotionally."
