Despite my nonplussed attitude to the Kardashian matriarch, I’m sure Caitlyn Jenner‘s transition has been a lot to process for Kris Jenner and I feel for the woman. The reality star opened up to Ellen DeGeneres on Tuesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show about the possibility of Caitlyn starting to date men. And that possibility is uh, tough to swallow? Ew!
Basically, Caitlyn announced she wants to date men, which is weird because her gender doesn’t necessarily have to be tied to her sexual orientation- and I wonder if she’s ever given hints she was into dudes all the years with her exes. Hard to say, but a lot to process…
“The last time you were here on the show, you were here with Bruce on Valentine’s Day,” host DeGeneres recalled to Kris as the two looked up at a photo of the exes, previously married for 22 years before splitting in 2013. “Now she is Caitlyn. It’s confusing because for a while she was not saying whether she was going to date women or men, and now apparently she has said that she’s going to date men.”
Kris admitted that the possibility of Caitlyn dating men is “confusing for sure” to her, but that at the end of the day, she just really wants Caitlyn “to be happy and be really comfortable.”
“She says she wasn’t her true authentic self for most of her life and knew when she was 4 that she had felt like that,” Kris continued. “So you don’t want somebody to be miserable or in pain or anything of that.”
As for the Keeping Up with the Kardashians matriarch, she’s still “getting used” to the situation.
“You know, I am human and I have my feelings but I try and it’s baby steps,” she said. “It’s like the mourning of somebody that you feel you are never going to really see or be with again.”
Again, kinda feeling for Kris right now. This news is pretty intense.
What do you think about Caitlyn dating dudes?
