This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
Take this one with a big grain of salt, but apparently Caitlyn Jenner is holding auditions for a BFF?!
Sources are reporting that the amazing transitioning role model has been auditioning other transgender talent to serve as friends and, well, cast members in her hit show I Am Cait.
"Caitlyn didn't just meet all of these already famous transgender people by accident – of course they were cast and, yes, they are getting paid. When you are appearing on a major network show on several episodes you do not do that for free. There are auditions and a selection process."
"It's great chance that Caitlyn and Candice really have hit it off and are actually BFFs now. That sure helps."
On the one hand, reality TV knows no limits, so it might make sense that producers would be gaming the system.
But on the other hand… for a woman who is so serious about being a role model and leader in the transgender community, reports like this might be a little blown out of proportion.
What do U think — is Caitlyn auditioning best friends, or is this just more reality TV mumbo jumbo?!
