Khloe Kardashian talked to Ellen DeGeneres about Caitlyn Jenner’s gender transition and apparently she found out just like the rest of us did: on television.
She said, “Well I had a hard time because I found out on camera like while we were filming and I felt like we kept asking him, Bruce, like that’s going on we’re hearing all these rumors. And he kept telling us one thing, but really he knew he was transitioning and wouldn’t be honest with us. So we felt like we were kind of the last to know so that was hard for us. Especially me. I defended him for so long or whatever.”
She went on to say, “So that was hard for then, now I’m fully okay with it. But I think the biggest part for me was understanding that Bruce is totally separate from Caitlyn. I don’t think Bruce knew fully that when he would be Caitlyn, I’m sure no one knows what’s going to happen – we’re all doing this for the first time.”
She continued, “I’m sure he probably hoped maybe glimmers of Bruce would be there. But if your soul really wanted to be female this whole time I can’t expect that. So now that we know he’s Caitlyn, he’s not Bruce. They’re two separate people.”
She added that her family still calls Caitlyn “dad” which she says is “confusing to some people but that’s how we know her.”
