Caitlyn Jenner Shares 6 Shocking Secrets in New Memoir ‘Secrets of My Life’
Caitlyn Jenner has never shied away from the limelight, but she didn’t always share everything about her life. In her new memoir, The Secrets of My Life, Caitlyn goes in depth about living as Bruce Jenner, all the while knowing that she identified as a woman. She also drops some bombshells about her marriage to Kris Jenner and their famous family. Here are six of the most shocking secrets the 67-year-old reality star spills in her new book:
- Life as Bruce
The former Olympian continued to live life as a man and give motivational speeches, all the while hiding her true self from the world. “They don’t know that underneath the business suit I am wearing panties and a bra,” she writes. “
- Gender Reassignment Surgery
Caitlyn also shares that in January she underwent reassignment surgery, nearly two years after announcing she was a transgender woman. “I just want to have all the right parts,” Caitlyn explains in her book. “I’m also tired of tucking the damn thing in all the time.”
- Dating Life
Caitlyn writes that she has no desire to ever be in a sexual relationship with a woman again. “Of the most important things in my life, sex is beyond the bottom; it has been that way for a long time,” she notes. “A future female companion? Yes, I do think about that. A future female sex companion? Not happening, at least for now, and perhaps not ever.” She adds that while she’s “never had the inclination” to have sex with men, she’s not ruled out the idea
- The O.J. Simpson Trial
According to Caitlyn, Kris’ first husband, attorney Robert Kardashian Sr., did not believe his friend O.J. Simpson was innocent in the murder of his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, despite being part of his legal defense team. Caitlyn recalls being in a car with Robert in the late ’90s, following O.J.’s initial acquittal and later conviction of manslaughter in a civil trial and claims the lawyer told her, “I would’ve been okay with it if they had gotten him in the first trial.” “The implication was obvious that he believed O.J. was guilty,” she adds.
- Sneaking Out
Caitlyn says there were times when she was living as Bruce that she would dress up as a woman and go out in public. She remembers that while staying at the Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee, she decided to go see a movie by herself dressed as a woman. “I left the theater afterward and had to go to the bathroom. I doubt that for anyone else there it was a complex decision; you have to go, so you go. For me it was, ‘Oh my God, now what am I going to do?'”
- Married Life
Kris was Caitlyn’s third wife and they were married from 1991 to 2015 and have two daughters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner. In the memoir, Caitlyn speaks about their love life while married. “Since — let’s not kid ourselves — everyone wants to know, Kris and I had good and frequent sex at the beginning,” she notes. “This will always be a subject of dispute between us. She insists that she was taken by surprise by my ultimate transition to Caitlyn, which obviously means in her mind that she did not know enough but she did.”
Has Caitlyn Finally Found Happiness and Peace with Her Decision to Become Female?
Susan Z’s Conclusion:
Yes, in her own private world but not within her family and social life.
Queen of Cups: Inverted (Upside Down)
This card represents a female energy who is sensitive and psychic. Since inverted I believe this card shows the softer side of Caitlyn wanting to be revealed when she was Bruce and knowing the truth.
Six of Cups: Inverted
This card represents forgiveness of the past and nostalgia. I feel the card shows Caitlyn not being able to understand why her family will not forgive her for her choice and also missing the family connection she once had as Bruce.
King of Cups: Inverted
This card represents an emotionally secretive and successful man. The card being inverted, it is an obvious point to Caitlyn’s life living as Bruce Jenner and how free she now feels that she is no longer that empty man.
