Kris Jenner Tells Ellen DeGeneres: Caitlyn Wanting To Date Men Is “Confusing”
DeGeneres brings up the subject by pointing out that the last time Kris was on the show, she was there with Bruce for Valentine’s Day, “which is just weird.” The host then asks about Caitlyn’s new interest in men, as teased in a promo for season two of “I Am Cait.” Kris acknowledges, “I saw that, too. I’m not quite sure.”
Asked point-blank how she feels about that, Kris answers, “Confusing for sure.” She goes on, “I think that I really want her to be happy, and be really comfortable in all the things that she says that she wasn’t, her true authentic self for most of her life and knew when she was four that she had felt like that.”
“You don’t want somebody to be miserable or in pain or anything like that,” says Jenner, “but I think for me, just getting used to all of that, it’s just — you know I’m human, and I just have my feelings, but I try. It’s just baby steps.”
When DeGeneres offers, “I’m sure you miss Bruce,” the Kardashian-Jenner matriarch responds, “It’s like the mourning of somebody you feel like you’re never going to really see or be with again.” After that, the comedienne again brings up Caitlyn’s orientation, noting that Cait was known to be into woman all these years prior.
“That part I don’t understand,” admits Jenner. “I said to her when this first happened, I said, ‘You’re so excited. You have to wait for the rest of us to catch up. Like, we haven’t had as many drinks as you.'” Check out the video below.
