Caitlyn Jenner is spilling it all. In an interview, the 71-year-old reality star opened up about family, her transition, and feeling shunned by the trans community.
Despite having a fluctuating relationship with her elder children – the Kardashians, Caitlyn Jenner has maintained individual relationships with each of her kids. However, during an appearance on Monday’s episode of Dear Media‘s The Skinny Confidential Him & Her podcast, she revealed that Kylie Jenner,23, has a special place in her heart than her other nine children, and she sees herself the most in Kendall Jenner.
Talking about her relationship with Kendall and Kylie, Caitlyn said, ” (Kendall) She’s very athletic. We kind of both had the same attitude towards life. I get along very well with the two of them, but Kylie and I just seem to be closer most of the time.”
“Kendall’s off kind of doing her thing, and Kylie, like, I had dinner last night at Kylie’s house,” Caitlyn continued. “We try to do that once a week, once every two weeks. I go over there and she always has these great meals — prepared, she doesn’t do them. … But they’re so good! It’s better than a restaurant.”
Adding, “Kylie’s more of an open book.”
Caitlyn Jenner feels “very blessed” to have all her kids. Talking about them, she said, “All my kids are great and they’ve all grown up to have their own lives. Now, sometimes, it gets a little tough when you’re sitting at the house, Friday night, and Sophia’s gone or whatever.”
“And you’re sitting there going, ‘Wait a second. I’ve got 10 kids. I’ve got 18 grandchildren. I’m sitting here all by myself!'” she continued. “Nobody’s called, and you’re looking at your phone, and shouldn’t somebody be calling me, you know? What, they all have their own lives? Yeah. Well, every parent deals with that. It’s nothing new.”
Caitlyn Jenner publicly came out as transgender in 2015, two years after she and Kris Jenner, 65, announced their separation. Her family, for the most part, was supportive of her when she came out.
Speaking to PEOPLE last year, Caitlyn Jenner and her two youngest daughters said the experience only brought them closer together.
“When my dad came out as transgender, our relationship grew,” Kendall said. “She could finally be honest with me. We could talk about the deep emotions she was feeling through that time. Growing up my dad was not usually one to talk about her feelings, so that was a big step for us.”
Added Kylie, “My dad has always been an inspiration to me, from winning the gold medal at the Olympics to getting her pilot’s license. However, watching her live out her true self has been the most inspiring of them all. She’s our hero.”
Caitlyn Jenner shares sons Brandon Jenner, 39, and Brody Jenner, 37, with ex-wife Linda Thompson; daughter Cassandra Marino, 40, and son Burt Jenner, 42, with ex-wife Chrystie Crownover; and daughters Kendall Jenner, 25, and Kylie Jenner, 23, with ex-wife Kris Jenner.
She also helped raise Kris’ kids with the late Robert Kardashian Sr.: Kourtney, 41, Kim, 40, Khloé, 36, and Rob, 33.
