There’s a first time for everything—and for Caitlyn Jenner, this was wearing a swimsuit in public after her gender reassignment surgery.
In case you couldn’t catch Sunday’s I Am Cait, here are five things you missed:
Caitlyn and some of her girlfriends vacation at a luxury villa, which later led to a San Francisco stay where Caitlyn met with a group of trans women activists. One trans woman’s story about being denied to nursing school six times moved Caitlyn so much, that the reality star offered to pay for the student’s schooling after she helps her get in.
Caitlyn and friend Jen Richards pull several swimsuits out of Caitlyn’s closet and display them all over Caitlyn’s bed.
“Putting on that bathing suit represents a lot to me,” Caitlyn said on the episode. “Kind of scary because, you know, you’re exposing yourself. I’m about as nervous as can possibly be right now.”
Even though Kim Kardashian suggested a more revealing suit for Caitlyn’s poolside debut, Caitlyn goes on to say about her step-daughter’s choice: “I love my daughter to death, Kimberly, but this is kind of one that Kimberly would wear, do you know what I’m saying? It’s probably a little more revealing in the cleavage department,” says Caitlyn. But the former Keeping Up With The Kardashians reality star finally chose a sleek, white one-piece suit. “In the water, it was nerve-wracking, but it felt very freeing. And I did see my reflection in the glass door, looked pretty good.”
Later in the episode during a dinner in Napa Valley, the ladies dished about their relationships and whether they’re interested in men or women. Caitlyn reveals she’s only so far been involved with women, but goes on to say that she’s unsure how that could change in the future. “For me, if that was the case, as far as a male, female relationship, I would want to have the right parts,” Caitlyn says.
