Some of the Kardashians were out of the loop when it came to Caitlyn Jenner’s facial feminization surgeries, breast augmentation, and the big reveal on the cover of Vanity Fair. Leaving one member of the family looking at the photos and asking “Who is Caitlyn?!”
On the About Bruce special, several of the sisters, especially Khloe Kardashian, grew tired of nebulous answers to questions about the gender reassignment and Diane Sawyer interview. Caitlyn had given (understandable) misinformation and half-truths, leaving Khloe and Kendall feeling frustrated about the whole situation.
One sibling who was even more in the dark, it seemed, was Rob Kardashian. The recluse brother who is no longer being filmed for the show. According to Kim Kardashian, she sent a mass text to the siblings containing the Vanity Fair cover when it first came out. Rob, confused, asked who the woman was!
“It was so funny because all the girls, we knew that Caitlyn was shooting this but my brother had no idea,” Kim admitted this week. “So I sent it on a mass text to everyone and my brother was on it and he goes, ‘Kim, why are you sending me this? Who is this woman? And why do I care?'”
“And I was like, ‘Rob, that’s Bruce! That’s Caitlyn!'” she added. “And he was like, ‘Oh my god, she’s beautiful!’ And then he called her and they had a lovefest and it was so cute. But the moment was so funny.”
Kim also reveals, she lent Caitlyn her glam squad for the VF cover! “The hairstylist I have used before,” Kim said. “My Glamour cover that came out today, is the same hairstylist that did the Vanity Fair shoot. So we shared glam tips. I just said, ‘Practice by yourself to find out how you feel most comfortable.’ And she figured it out. She looked amazing.”
One final detail from the Vanity Fair interview. Did Caitlyn get the full gender reassignment surgery? No! And she doesn’t have any plans to do so either.
