Caitlyn Jenner has six kids, but she doesn’t see much of them. In a ranging interview with Broadly, the former Olympian opens up about her life post-transition and what it’s like to be one of the most well-known members of the trans community.
“I spend a lot of time by myself here in the house,” Jenner told Broadly. “I have a lot of children, but sometimes just because of circumstances, maintaining a close relationship with your kids is very tough. They all have lives. They’ve all moved on.”
- She shares Burt, 39, and Cassandra, 37, with ex-wife Christie Crownover; sons Brandon, 36, and Brody, 34, with ex-wife Linda Thompson, and daughter Kendall, 22, and Kylie, 20, with ex-wife Kris Jenner. She came out as transgender in 2015.
- Jenner clearly hopes that she’ll be able to mend fences. “We’re just human beings; we’re going to be here for a very short time,” she later added. “We come and we go and at the end, when it’s all said and done, hopefully your family is going to be there.”
- Plenty has happened since she came out, especially because she claimed (which ex-wife Kris disputed) that Kris knew of her gender identity, which has caused no end of turmoil and debate.
- Jenner told Broadly: “I got the trans community out there bashing on me, I got the Kardashians out there bashing on me. All I do is sit here in the house and try to stay out of trouble.”
ON HER FUNERAL AND THE GOP
- “I hope when I get up there to the pearly gates, God looks down and says, ‘You did a good damn job, you won the Games, raised wonderful children, and you know, you made a difference in the world. Yeah, come on in,’ ” she continued. “That’s the way I want to go.”
- She added that even before she transitioned, she planned to add a detail of her will stipulating that she be buried in women’s clothes.
- “I thought about that a lot over the years,” she said. “And it would shock everybody. Screw ’em.”
- Jenner also spoke out about her role as a trans Republican. “The Republicans need the most work when it comes to our issues, I get that,” she said. “I would rather work from the inside. I’m not the type of person who is going to stand on a street corner with a sign and jump up and down. No, I’m going to go have dinner with these people.”
