Caitlyn Jenner definitely broke the Internet on June 1 when the Vanity Fair cover of her as a woman for the first time debuted, but so much has happened since the big reveal—including an apparent feud with ex Kris Jenner! Click through to find out about their disagreements, how Caitlyn broke a record and more developments.
Why Caitlyn? The cover girl “always favored the name Caitlyn” because it “sounds classy and beautiful.” But it just so happens Brody Jenner’s girlfriend is Caitlyn—though “the name was chosen years before they started dating,” RadarOnline reported.
The Vanity Fair interview revealed that Caitlyn did not want the focus of the feature to be about her gender reassignment surgery, because she is waiting for the docuseries to make that big reveal. Caitlyn, however, underwent breast implant surgery and facial feminization in March.
There are a few feuds surrounding the Vanity Fair cover, the biggest between Caitlyn Jenner and Kris Jenner. The former couple of 22 years “agree on virtually nothing,” VF writer Buzz Bissinger wrote. Caitlyn also admitted that Kris was “not very nice” and “mistreated” her.
Kris, however, sung a different tune, Radar reported. “He was married to me and he wasn’t who he wanted to be so he was miserable,” she said. “All I was doing was working very hard for my family so that we could all have a wonderful future, and he was pissed off.”
The exes also argued about when Caitlyn should make her debut on the cover, Radar reported, since Kim Kardashian announced her second pregnancy the day before on May 31. Kris reportedly “asked Caitlyn to hold the Vanity Fair cover and her big reveal until after Kim’s pregnancy got the proper publicity, but she refused to do so.”
The 65-year-old set another world record! Caitlyn’s Twitter account, @Caitlyn_Jenner, reached 1 million followers in four hours, and was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records.
Caitlyn’s got a presidential supporter! Barack Obama took to Twitter to tell her that “it takes courage to share your story” and encouraged others to share their stories, as well.
Naturally, not everyone lent their support for Jenner, like Fox Business anchor Neil Cavuto who called it the “fall of Rome” and referred to her as “he.”
Caitlyn’s mother, Esther Jenner, also said she will still call him Bruce, though she acknowledged that “she’s beautiful” and “so much more at ease.”
There’s been a lot of comparisons to Caitlyn and other celebrities, like Jessica Lange, who called her transformation “wonderful,” but admitted she has yet to see the cover, and joked about not understanding Twitter.
Another person who didn’t know about the cover? Rob Kardashian! Kim Kardashian revealed her brother had no clue the photo shoot was happening until she texted him a photo of the cover.
“He goes, 'Kim, why are you sending me this? Who is this woman? And why do I care?' And I was like, 'Rob, that's Bruce! That's Caitlyn!' And he was like, 'Oh my god, she's beautiful!' And then he called her and they had a lovefest and it was so cute,” Kim told Access Hollywood.
