The first promo for Caitlyn Jenner’s docu-series is here! On June 3, E! gave a first look at ‘I Am Cait,’ the reality show that will follow Caitlyn living her life as a transgender woman, and we’re already inspired. Check it out here!
Caitlyn Jenner, 65, has arrived! The first promo for Caitlyn’s reality show, I Am Cait, was released on June 3, and gives us a new look at the former Bruce Jenner all glammed up. Watch the preview here!
In the one -minute clip, Caitlyn applies her own makeup, and excitedly drives out in the world dressed as a woman for the first time. “It’s so bright out there! Look at that!” she exclaims. “Isn’t that great, that maybe someday you’ll be normal and just blend into society? Put it this way — I’m the new normal.”
And in a voiceover, the former Olympian gets a bit emotional while talking about her journey. “So many people go through life and they never deal with their own issues, no matter what the issues are,” Caitlyn explains. “Ours happen to be gender identity. But, how many people go through life, and just wage their entire life because they never deal with themselves to be who they are?”
Check out the whole preview above to find out what Caitlyn has already learned about living life as a woman, and how she’s come to realize how different it is from being male.
While we’ll get to see Caitlyn adjust to living as a woman for the first time in the show, the process has already been going on for quite some time. In fact, with an interview with VanityFair.com, released on June 2, she admitted it took her months to come up with a name when she began the transition!
“It’s one of the hardest things in life — choosing your own name,” Caitlyn admitted. And, shockingly, it was Ronda Kamihira, who was rumored to be dating Caitlyn when she was still Bruce in 2014 and is also Kris Jenner’s former BFF, who helped make the final decision!
Originally, after watching the Miss America pageant, Caitlyn was considering the names Heather and Cathy, with Caitlyn always in the back of her mind. But when Ronda independently mentioned the name Caitlyn, too, the coincidence sealed the deal.
I Am Cait premieres on E! July 26 at 9 p.m. HollywoodLifers, tell us — will you be tuning in?!
