Caitlyn Jenner is documenting her gender transition on E!'s eight-part series, I Am Cait, and this week she went on a road trip with her friends in the transgender community — including actress Candis Cayne. While on vacation, Jenner tried to find her footing as the lone conservative in a largely liberal community, as well as come to terms with her own transition.
From finding her "feminine voice" to wearing a swimsuit in public, here are the biggest moments from I Am Cait's second episode!
Caitlyn Jenner is Crushin' on Candis Cayne
Caitlyn Jenner's been linked to transgender model Candis Cayne, and she opened up about her feelings while picking out swimsuits for their road trip.
After being told she needed a "sexy" swimsuit for Cayne, a blushing Jenner said that she's "a very attractive lady" and then showed off photos of their recent hang session.
"Candis is a beautiful woman," Jenner said during an interview. "But as far as dating and the future, I have absolutely no idea."
Ronda Kamihira + Caitlyn Jenner = Just Friends
Speaking of beautiful women, Ronda Kamihira was rumored to be dating Caitlyn Jenner while the Olympian was still going by Bruce — in fact, paparazzi snapped photos of them together. But in actuality, Jenner confided in Kamihira when she was in the early stages of transitioning.
"It was so great when I found out," Kamihira told Jenner's trans friends while road-tripping. "One time you called me and said, 'Hey what are you doing,' and I was like 'Nothing.' And you were like, 'Well, do you want to come over for a glass of wine?' And I was like, 'Yeah, of course.'
She continued: "I'm thinking, 'He's not gonna hit on me?' Caitlyn told me her story that night after a couple glasses of wine."
Caitlyn Jenner Isn't Ready To Wear a Bathing Suit
While Jenner did pack bathing suits for her road trip, she opted not to wear them in front of her new friends. "Bathing suit. I can't even say it. It's hard for it just to come out," she fumbled during an interview with producers. "Saying a 'bathing suit.' That's where I gotta get and that's gonna take time."
On vacation, Jenner made a similar statement alone in her room with a camcorder: "I don't think I'm ready for that. You have to realize these girls transitioned years and years and years ago. I just don't know if I'm ready to expose myself like that. Maybe down the line I'll feel more comfortable with myself, but right now I just can't see myself doing it."
Vocal Surgery Might Be Down the Line
Caitlyn Jenner's gone through numerous physical changes during her transition, but one thing that remains the same is her voice. This is a concern for the reality star, who told Kim Kardashian and Malika Haqq that she used to practice her "best feminine voice" by calling room service in hotels.
Kim offered to have Jenner faux-call her, and laughed "You sound no different!" when Jenner tried to raise the tenor of her voice. "I didn't think so!" she said, while Kardashian teased "Sir! What would you like, sir?"
Jenner then told his step-daughter that she was considering surgery, who reacted to the news by saying: "What if they made a mistake and you had no voice?"
Caitlyn's Conservatism Is Called Into Question
Jenner has spoken out about being a Republican, and her conservative opinions ruffled feathers among her trans friends, who tried to explain how important social programs are to the community. "You don't want people to get totally dependent on it," Jenner said. "That's when they get in trouble: ‘Why should I work?'"
Jenny Boylan voiced concern about Jenner's opinion, saying “Many transgender men and women need social programs to survive, and that's nothing to be ashamed of. Living in the bubble is an impediment to understanding other people. If Cait’s going to be a spokesperson for the community this is something that she's going to have to understand."
I Am Cait airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on E!.
