Caitlyn Jenner “Today” Video: Reveals Post-Surgery “Panic Attack,” Tries To Dodge Dating Questions — WATCH!
Caitlyn Jenner spoke about having a “panic attack” over her transition and the future of her dating life during the second part of her “Today” interview, which aired on Thursday. Check out the video below.
As Gossip Cop reported, Jenner recently met up with Matt Lauer at a Los Angeles-area golf course for a friendly game amid candid talk about her transition. The first half of the chat featured the transgender star talking about her fatal car crash and the controversial Halloween costume she inspired. In the new clips, she admits people can be “uneasy” around her until they realize, “It’s still kind of the same person.”
Asked about any “second thoughts,” Jenner initially said “no,” but then told Lauer, “I had a little work done. I had a hard time waking up. And I had a massive panic attack. I never had anything like that in my life. It was so scary… In my head, when I shut my eyes, it was just like, ‘Oh my god. What did you just do?!’ Because that surgery kind of passed the point of no return.”
Otherwise, “no regrets whatsoever,” insisted Jenner, saying, “I just want my family to be okay.” She went on, “All of that stuff takes time. You know, you transition, your whole family goes through this. And I have a great family.” Jenner went on to surprise Lauer when she brought up the advantage of playing golf with “boobs” and “these little puppies.”
Jenner, however, set herself up for dating questions after gushing about having girls’ nights. “Ugh, dating. Here we go again,” she exclaimed. “Everybody’s wondering about that.” Jenner went on to explain that she does get the curiosity, and pointed out that the other women featured on “I Am Cait” are young and looking to have families, an experience she’s already had. As for “love and compassion,” Jenner said, “I have no idea what that would be in the future, but I’m kind of open to anything.”
The former Olympian amusingly called Lauer “Oprah” when he attempted to find out which gender she’s attracted to. “I honestly don’t even know that,” insisted Jenner. “I don’t want to go there. Right now, I have no idea what the future holds. I’ll cross that bridge when it comes to it.”
“I just want to enjoy myself,” added Jenner. Watch below, and tell us what you think.
