4. Caitlyn wore
pantyhose and bras underneath her suits -- even when fulfilling public commitments
following her 1976 Olympic win.
“Underneath my suit I have a bra and panty hose and this and
that and thinking to myself, They know nothing about me,” she revealed.
“I walk off the stage and I’d feel like a liar,” she added. “And
I would say, ‘F--k, I can’t tell my story. There’s so much more to me than
those 48 hours in the stadium, and I can’t talk about it.’ It was frustrating.
You get mad at yourself.... Little did they know I was totally empty inside.
Totally empty inside.”
5. Caitlyn’s four
oldest kids knew about her identity as young as pre-teens.
Burt and Cassandra both learned about Caitlyn's true gender identity
when they were 13 and 11.
In the mid to late ‘80s, Brody noticed Caitlyn's body
changing after she had started taking hormones. Brody even asked his mother
about it -- though she did not tell him until he was 29.
“As soon as I heard it, it was almost a relief. Because it
just made a lot of sense growing up,” Brody told Vanity Fair. “Reasons and things like why he wasn’t there. Not
around. I finally realized he had his own issues he was dealing with at that
6. When and how much
Kris Jenner knew “is a matter of dispute.”
Even though Buzz talked to both Caitlyn and Kris, it’s
unclear just how much Caitlyn told Kris about her gender identity.
“When I met Bruce,” Kris said, “he told me that he had done
hormones back in the early '80s. 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.”
She added that “there wasn’t a gender issue. Nobody
mentioned a gender issue. Somebody mentioned that [he] at one point in his life
liked to dress up.”
Caitlyn revealed that she cross-dressed in front of her, but
Kris quickly set ground rules: “[s]he could cross-dress when he was traveling
on his own but not at home.”
