Reading the VF article reminded me of the love & good times Kris & I shared for so many years. Wouldn’t trade that time for anything!

The Vanity Fair article paints a very blurry picture of exactly how much Kris knew of Caitlin’s gender transformation during their marriage.
“When I met Bruce, he told me that he had done hormones back in the early ’80s,” said Kris in an interview with Vanity Fair. “This was a conversation that took place in the early ’90s. So, what he was telling me happened a decade earlier, and he never really explained it. There wasn’t a gender issue. Nobody mentioned a gender issue.”
However, Caitlyn claims that Kris was more than aware of the fact that she used to dress up in women’s clothing when he was known as Bruce Jenner–as long as it wasn’t done in the house.
Despite the disagreement over the timeline of events leading up to Caitlyn’s public reveal, during E!’s “About Bruce” program, Kris was emotional regarding the loss of her husband but is more than supportive if it is what Caitlyn needs to be happy.
“Live the happiest life you can live. That’s all I care about. That you’re going through all of this for an amazing outcome. And that you can find the peace that you’ve been searching for,” said Kris. “You were a great dad, a great friend, a great partner. At the end of the day it’s not about my feelings.”
