History is unfolding! Caitlyn Jenner officially broke the internet June 1 with her flawless ‘Vanity Fair’ cover, and now she may be ready for late night television with an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Caitlyn Jenner, 65, has so much to celebrate this week after she publicly revealed her beautiful self on the cover of Vanity Fair. Interest in the reality star is at a fever pitch with multiple television outlets clamoring to have her appear on their show. Unfortunately a number of them will have to wait their turn as a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Jimmy Kimmel Live! is the favorite to win the Caitlyn’s sweepstakes!
What an exciting and liberating time this must be for Caitlyn. Once her breathtaking spread in Vanity Fair hit the newsstands, she had the television world begging her to make an appearance on their show. Now, we have learned that she may be ready to drop by Jimmy Kimmel‘s studio to dish about this journey. “Every late night show has reached out for Caitlyn to appear as a guest but the front runner is Jimmy Kimmel,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “The tie in with ABC who had the interview with Diane Sawyer, the ESPYs and possibly Dancing With The Stars are all Disney owned and has made Jimmy the best candidate to get the first late night interview. And it would obviously occur right around the start of the docu-series to promote her show.”
Ah, exciting! This entire Caitlyn story is paving such an inspiring path. As for how Caitlyn feels about the decision to reveal herself, we’ve learned “she’s overwhelmed” with the amount of support she’s recieved. “Caitlyn can’t believe she’s actually living her life as she’s always wanted,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “We’re told that this day is the beginning of a new life and a new year for her — that’s why she’s feeling like it’s not only her birthday, but a New Year as well!”
After the Vanity Fair story broke, we learned about Caitlyn’s fear during the photo shoot. While the photos radiate so much confidence, there was a bit of apprehension before the shoot. “I was always worried…you never want to look like a guy in a dress. If you’re going to do [this], and come out, you really have to look the part,” she told the magazine. “You have to look very feminine. Your presentation is extremely important.”
