Caitlyn’s cooler! Kylie Jenner sat down with Ellen DeGeneres for a show which will air later today, Monday, Nov. 30, to discuss her dad Bruce Jenner‘s transition to Caitlyn Jenner — and revealed she’s very happy with the outcome.
Despite admitting to having found the process of Caitlyn’s transition hard to handle, the 18-year-old reality star revealed to DeGeneres that everything actually turned out great, and Kylie and Caitlyn have a whole lot more in common than Kylie and Bruce ever did.
“I feel it was the only thing that I really bottled at, and I don’t bottle a lot of things, and I feel my family was a little upset about that,” Kylie admitted, truthfully. “But I thought through it and now I like it a lot better. I like her better than Bruce,” she said, laughing.
“Why?” asked DeGeneres.
“Because we talk about makeup and clothes we bond a lot more,” Kylie continued. “But not only that. I feel like there’s not a huge secret in the family. I feel like there was always this big secret. And I’ve honestly known about it for a really long time and we actually caught him then dressing up as a girl. When my sister and I were like 6 and 7 maybe. So we’ve known for a while that there was something, but it was never talked about,” she added. “Now there’s no secrets. She’s really living her authentic true self.”
Kylie also spoke about being bullied in the past, and her determination to do something positive with her experiences.
“I’ve been bullied my whole life, whether it was my peers or comments on Instagram or Twitter. And I never talked about my story really. I feel like I’ve kind of accepted it because I realized that just comes with the territory,” she explained. “So I was online, finding other girls and boys my age who have been bullied and have kind of overcome it and just done something amazing with it, who inspire me. So I wanted them to just use my platform and post their stories on Instagram to hopefully inspire my followers too because they inspire me so much,” she added.
