Welcome home, Caitlyn Jenner

The moment we have all been waiting for, well, truthfully – the moment Bruce Jenner has been waiting for has FINALLY arrived. Caitlyn, formerly, Bruce Jenner has made her first official appearance as a woman.

Caitlyn’s transformation journey has been published in Vanity Fair (on shelves tomorrow, Tuesday, June 2nd), and we are here to give you a wrap up of the 22-page feature story.

While she has just begun to reveal her story, it is clear that this has been a lifelong journey of secrets, emptiness, and now bravery and triumph.  During a comparison between winning an Olympic Gold medal to her first photo shoot as a woman, Jenner admitted to Buzz Bissinger (author of VF article) that this moment was much better. “This shoot was about my life and who I am as a person.”

Although Jenner has been waiting for this moment for several years, she suffered panic attacks immediately after her facial feminization surgery (she has not had genital surgery). Jenner had regretful thoughts, “what did I just do to myself,” – but those feelings quickly went away once she realized she had become the person she has always wanted to be. Jenner tells Bissinger that if she had never revealed her true self, she would have lied on her deathbed thinking, ‘you just blew your whole life.’

Jenner reflects on memories of wearing a bra and pantyhose underneath her suit during public speaking events, thinking to herself, ‘they know nothing about me.’ She explains her time as Bruce as a life filled with lies – lying from sun up until sun down, but now, Caitlyn doesn’t have any lies.

Caitlyn talks about her family and the mistakes she made as Bruce saying, “I have high hopes that Caitlyn is a better person than Bruce. I’m very much looking forward to that.”

Caitlyn’s family showed nothing but love and support today after the release of the Vanity Fair cover.

Here are some of their social media posts:

Let us all take Caitlyn’s bravery as a message to always stay true to ourselves, no matter how scary that may be.

“Soon as the Vanity Fair comes out, I’m free.”

Yes, you are Caitlyn and welcome home.

Kelly Rutherford Wins Custody Battle

Kelly Rutherford was recently granted sole custody of her children, Hermes and Helena, after a long battle with her ex.
Kelly Rutherford was recently granted sole custody of her children, Hermes and Helena, after a long battle with her ex.

After a long and expensive custody battle, Kelly Rutherford was finally granted sole custody of her twin children on Friday, May 22. The ruling came from a California judge after six years of fighting. However, It remains to be seen if a judge in Monaco will uphold the decision.

Rutherford and her ex, Daniel Giersch have been locked in a custody battle since their divorce in 2010. In 2012, Giersch was deported from America and took the twins, Helena and Hermes, to live with him in France and Monaco. Then, an international judge determined in 2013 that Giersch no longer had to pay for the children to visit Rutherford in the US.

Rutherford went bankrupt trying to fight for her kids and visit them. She rallied support from famous friends on Twitter, including Gossip Girl costars Ed Westwick and Matthew Settle. She even received support from Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian. Rutherford also created a petition, which quickly reached the needed 100,000 signatures for the White House to look at it. In addition to these efforts, she created the Children’s Justice Campaign, which aims to help parents facing a similar struggle.

“I know it’s not right,” she said in an interview with Good Morning America in April. “Parents know — everyone knows it’s not right. I can sit here and tell you how often I cry. I can tell you how it feels to leave my kids in a foreign country and seeing them after not seeing them for weeks on end. Not being able to bring them from school and pick them up from school, dress them, hug them, smell them.”

The ruling only grants Rutherford custody during the ongoing custody battle, though. Additionally, because Giersch is living in France and Monaco, a California-based ruling is not all that is needed. It must also meet custody standards set by Monaco. It remains to be seen whether everyone will comply with the ruling. However, it is a major win and provides hope for improvement, after a long and painful struggle for Rutherford.

No more beating around the bush, the former 65-year-old Olympian has officially declared himself as a woman. Bruce Jenner went on to reveal his true self and the struggle he has gone through, in a 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer.

The interview included Bruce discussing his former marriages and specifically his relationship with ex wife Kris Jenner. Jenner also discuss that he was terrified to talk to his children about his transition.

However, his children’s reaction were very welcoming. From the Kardashians’ supporting and touching messages to his older children making an appearance and speaking about their acceptance of their father.

Even celebrities who tuned in to the special sent out kind messages in support of Bruce. The only one who seemed to not be supportive was former family member Kris Humphries as he tweeted “ “Man, I’m glad I got out when I did. #Gottadoyou.” Well, you can’t please everyone.

We will be able to follow Bruce on this ongoing journey of his transition in a new E! Series. According to Hollywood life, we will be seeing a follow up interview once the transition is complete.

Overall, the interview was very heart touching, and inspiring. At the end of the day you need to do what makes yourself happy. So way to go Bruce for sharing your struggle with the world and hopefully opening the doors for other transgender people. It won’t make it easier but this is definitely a step in the right direction.

Kylie Jenner and Tyga Officially Dating?

Kylie and Tyga
Kylie Jenner and Tyga spend a lot of time together, fueling these rumors.

Rumors have been going around for months that 25-year-old rapper Tyga was dating 17-year-old reality star Kylie Jenner. The pairing was scandalous for many reasons: Jenner is underage (and there is an 8 year age difference between the two) and Tyga had just gotten out of a relationship with Blac Chyna, with whom he has a son. A lot of people were saying that Tyga left his family for Jenner, who was 16 at the time. Amber Rose has recently taken to social media to voice her opinion on these two, saying Tyga should “be ashamed” of himself. A few months ago there were even pregnancy rumors going around, but mom Kris Jenner quickly denied these. Recently, though, it seems that Tyga himself confirmed the dating rumors.

Tyga posted this picture of Jenner on Instagram.

A few days ago, Tyga posted this picture of Kylie on Instagram and captioned it, “Certain things catch your eye, but only few capture the heart.” This seemed to leave no room for interpretation. Almost everyone is sure that these two are dating now, which is definitely causing some problems. Amber Rose continued her twitter rant, saying, “He has a beautiful woman and a baby and left that for a 16-year-old who just turned 17.” Kanye West, brother-in-law of Kylie, seemed to confirm the rumors as well, stating in an interview: “I think Tyga got in early. I think he was smart.”

The pair has been denying dating rumors for the longest time, but now suddenly seem to be owning up to them. This certainly is a complicated relationship, with Jenner being a minor and Tyga leaving his fiancee and son. Many are quick to criticize Jenner and Tyga because of the age difference, calling the relationship inappropriate. What do you think? Are these two actually dating? And is the age difference too much? Let us know in the comments or tweet us using #glamorouspaper!
