Since Caitlyn Jenner publicly revealed she was transitioning from male to female, the former Olympian’s found support from all members of her family — including her ex wives.
On Saturday, Linda Thompson talked about her famous, former flame while at the Matthew Silverman Memorial Foundation‘s Light Up the Night White Party at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills, CA.
“I can’t say that it’s not a little surreal for all of us.”
Well we can totally understand that since Brody Jenner‘s mom was married to the Olympian for five years. Nonetheless, it seems that she and her kids make an effort to tune into the reality star’s E! show.
“I think it’s fascinating. Of course, I lived it. We continue to be friendly. We’re not close friends, we don’t hang out. But, of course, Caitlyn is invited every time there is a family function. She has shown up a few times. It’s really kind of wonderful to see how all the kids have embraced her as a parent. She’s still a parent. She’s still a father.”
AH-Mazing! Though most of the family members seem to have accepted Cait’s transition without hiccup, the blonde beauty’s still a tad baffled by seeing the father of her children in her new body.
“I have to be honest and say it’s strange for me to see this beautiful woman, and look in her eyes, and think, ├óΓé¼╦£That’s the father of my children.’ That being said, I’m totally supportive of her and always have been.”
That’s good to hear!
In fact, the retired actress learned about Caitlyn 30 years ago from the brunette beauty herself.
“I felt terrible for her 30 years ago that she couldn’t really fully express who she really was. So I’ve always been in support of her being who she needed to be. And who she rightfully should be. I think the world is kinder now than it was 30 years ago and certainly more educated. This is not a choice. This is how we’re born.”
Aww! If you appreciated Linda’s insights into Caitlyn’s journey, then you’ll be happy to hear that the Emmy winner is writing a memoir which is slated to hit stands next year.
“It’s certainly not a tell-all. It’s about forgiveness, kindness, loving, acceptance, embracing people for who they are.”
We’re certainly now excited — especially since Miz Jenner wasn’t the only A-lister the lyricist dated. Umm, did somebody say Elvis Presley?! LOLz!
Claps for the entire extended Jenner family for their constant love and support!
