In a moment that made instant pop culture history, Caitlyn Jenner sent the world into an appreciative frenzy when she revealed herself for the first time, on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine this week. Now, we’re getting an intimate glimpse of the woman behind that iconic image, in a new docu-series I Am Cait, set to air July 26 at 9pm EST on E!
In the first clip for the series, which aired on June 3, Caitlyn talks about how so many people waste their whole lives not dealing with their issues or being their true selves. While applying makeup, the newly transitioned 65-year-old expresses her amusement and awe at “all this stuff” ladies have to do to primp on a daily basis.
”You start learning the kind of the pressure that women are under all of the time about their appearance,” Jenner says. “I never had it until a couple of weeks ago — actually had a professional come in and do my makeup — what a difference.”
Calling herself “the new normal,” Caitlyn is clearly enjoying living life authentically – happy to be able to live her truth, free of all the shame and fear she’s experienced for decades.
