Caitlyn Jenner: Docu-series will help my soul

Published 01/06/2015

Caitlyn Jenner doesn’t think anyone would “want to be dealing with all these issues”.

The 65-year-old, formerly known as Bruce, made her public debut on the cover of Vanity Fair on Monday. In the accompanying interview, she opened up about her new reality show which has documented her transition from male to female.

“I'm not doing it for money. I'm doing it to help my soul and help other people,” she told the publication. “If I can make a dollar, I certainly am not stupid. [I have] house payments and all that kind of stuff. I will never make an excuse for something like that.”

As well as addressing her reasons for being so public about her transformation, Caitlyn also discussed the years of struggles that she had living as a male. It’s most certainly been a long road for the star to get to this point.

“‘I don't want to be this way' was the bottom line. Who would want to be dealing with all these issues," she continued. "I look at men and say, 'Oh my God, would it not be so wonderful to be comfortable in your own skin, male or female, so when you wake up in the morning you get dressed and go to work and this identity issue is not even present?'”

Caitlyn can finally start living her life as a woman now and is set to make her public debut on July 15 when she accepts the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at ESPN's ESPYs in Los Angeles. All ten of her Kardashian and Jenner children will be by her side according to the outlet.

Khloé and Kim Kardashian were quick to celebrate Caitlyn’s arrival on Monday, with Kendall Jenner close behind.

Her younger sister Kylie has also taken to social media to praise her father, with the 17-year-old writing on Instagram alongside the image of Caitlyn’s cover shot: “My angel on earth!”
