We’re still nearly two weeks away from the release of Caitlyn Jenner’s memoir, but at the rate things are going, there won’t be many bombshells left for the big day.
Earlier this week, we learned that Caitlyn has undergone gender reassignment surgery, a move she previously stated she didn’t plan to make.
Yesterday, we found out that she believes Robert Kardashian knew O.J. Simpson was guilty of double murder, but fought to make sure his friend beat the charges anyway.
You might think it would be hard to top those revelations, and well … you would be right.
But that’s not gonna stop Cait and her publishers from gunning for that number one bestseller title by spilling more tea all over the Internet.
Today’s bridge-burner might not compare to alleging a dead man helped engineer the trial of the century in order to get back at Cait for marrying his ex but it’s still pretty good.
And as a bonus, it’s just as likely to piss off the Kardashians.
First some background:
Over the past year, the main source of conflict between Caitlyn and Kris Jenner has been Kris’ insistence that Caitlyn lied about her transition when she first came out, by telling the press that Kris had been informed of her decision, when in reality the Kard clan momager found out the same way as the rest of the world.
Now, Caitlyn is flipping the script and insisting that it’s Kris who’s been misleading the public:
“I told her there had been a woman inside me all my life,” she writes, adding that she was downright baffled when Kris claimed to have been kept in the dark:
“On Keeping Up With the Kardashians she shed copious tears in coming to grips with it. Given what she saw, the whole reaction seemed a little puzzling then and seems puzzling now.”
Caitlyn says she doesn’t need to recall a specific conversation in order to prove that Kris knew the score from day one.
In fact, she insists there’s no way Kris didn’t know, as Caitlyn’s transition into Bruce began well before she even met Kris:
“I told her I had been in hormone therapy for roughly the past four and a half years before stopping six months earlier,” Caitlyn says, noting that she had begun to develop “womanly curves” by the time she started dating Kris.
“It was obvious that the effect of the hormones had cause something — two somethings to be exact. To me they were the development of breasts, size 36B.”
Caitlyn says that after years of disagreements, Kris conceded, but only if Caitlyn agreed to play the role of Bruce around their friends:
“Eventually Kris and I do reach an understanding — take Caitlyn on the road — but she is not to play in our home or hometown,” she writes. “End of discussion.”
Given that there’s already major tension between Caitlyn and the Kardashian sisters (especially Khloe) we’re guessing this memoir won’t do much to mend fences.
People tend to get touchy when it comes to accusing their moms of being transphobic liars and telling the world that their dead dads protected a murderer.
