“Meet Caitlyn” is the headline splashed across the cover of Vanity Fair in front of the newly revealed Caitlyn Jenner.
And Caitlyn is absolutely Fierce Darling!
As the reveal for Vanity Fair blew up across my Facebook time line, it was both heartwarming and funny to see the reactions of my friends. Many of them were amazed by how great Bruce transitioned in to Caitlyn. A few of them thought at first glance that the woman on the cover was Jessica Lange. Then, upon reading the headline they saw that that it was Bruce Jenner revealing himself as Caitlyn Jenner. It wasn’t long before the jokes came in questioning why he didn’t spell Caitlyn with K.
In typical TMZ fashion, they had the answer for us right away! Sources close to Bruce told TMZ that he really wanted to make a clean break from the Kardashian Clan. There’s no bad blood between him and Kardashians, he just wants his own identity. Thank God! It’s such a sense of relief to know that with his coming out he did it for him and not to help contribute to the ever growing attention seeking legacy of the Kardashian family.
The photo shoot was done by famous photographer Annie Leibovitz and upon this announcement I knew we could expect something amazing, but this goes beyond expectations. At 65, it won’t be long before Caitlyn is making the average woman jealous and begging for her aging secrets (even if it does include tons of high-end plastic surgery).
The magazine also released a video of Jenner’s thoughts about revealing Caitlyn to the world. “Bruce always had to tell a lie. He was always living a lie. Every day, he always had a secret. From morning till night. Caitlyn doesn’t have any secrets.”
“As soon as the Vanity Fair cover comes out, I’m free.” That’s such an amazingly powerful statement. It wasn’t until the E! Special About Bruce that I realized how deep Bruce’s suffering truly went and how much he craved bursting out from behind the shadows and being his true self. Not only is it great to see someone happy as their true self, it’s even better when you think about the fact that his revelation could potentially help many people come out and be their true selves. It’s a fascinating story to watch unfold and ( I never thought I’d say this in connection to anyone associated with the Kardashian clan) an important one.
Jenner also debuted a verified twitter and Facebook account. The Twitter account alone had over 700,000 followers in less than three hours.His PR people did some brilliant work on their end. He’s due to have reassignment surgery very soon.
What’s even more interesting is this reveal comes the morning after his step-daughter Kim announced that her and her husband Kanye West are having their second child. You have to wonder if the attention seeking Kim isn’t a bit pissed that Bruce snatched the spotlight from her a little. I’m going to go out on the ledge and say that more people are interested in Caitlyn than another spawn of the Kardashian Klan.
All I really have to say is keep it fierce Mrs. Caitlyn, keep it fierce!
