When the Kardashians and Jenners celebrate Thanksgiving, don’t expect Caitlyn Jenner to be there to carve the turkey. Khloe Kardashian revealed on ‘Ellen’ why the ‘I Am Cait’ star is not spending the holiday with her family. Click to watch!
For some, Thanksgiving isn’t complete without cranberry sauce or pumpkin pie. Sadly, Khloe Kardashian, 31, said her holiday is going to be missing a different kind of ingredient: Caitlyn Jenner, 66. While sitting down with Ellen DeGeneres, 57, Khloe explained why Cait wouldn’t be there to help pass the potatoes at dinnertime.
Caitlyn is “still part of our family,” and that she’s still “our Dad, we say, which I know is confusing to some people,” Khloe said to Ellen during the Nov. 16 episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. While the I Am Cait star is still a valued member of the Kardashian-Jenner household, sadly, she won’t be there for the November holiday.
“She’s not going to be with us on Thanksgiving because she’s working,” Khloe said in response to Ellen’s question. “But she’ll be with us for Christmas, for sure.” That’s good! It seems that if Cait could make it to Thanksgiving dinner this year, she would. Cait has been very grateful for her family, and she made her feelings known during Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards. When accepting “The Transgender Champion” honor, Caitlyn gushed over her family, thanking them from the bottom of her heart for not “abandoning her.”
Also in the interview, Khloe also spoke about the hardships of Caitlyn’s transition, about how she found out on camera. “I felt like we kept asking him, ‘Bruce, what’s going on, we’re hearing all these rumors?'” While Caitlyn has come to support Caitlyn, she also said that she mourned “the loss of Bruce.”
Though it is sad that Cait will miss Thanksgiving, it’s great that she’ll be there for Christmas. Not only will it be Cait’s first X-mas with her family, she’ll also be there for the birth of the Kardashians’ newest member. Kim Kardashian is scheduled to deliver North West’s baby brother close to Dec. 25th, so it’s wonderful that Cait will be there to help celebrate.
Are you surprised that Caitlyn won’t be with her family during Thanksgiving, HollywoodLifers?
