Caitlyn Jenner, Jimmy Kimmel Discuss Jokes About Bruce's Appearance

By    |   Thursday, 20 Jul 2017 05:54 AM

Caitlyn Jenner confronted Jimmy Kimmel about jokes he and other late night show hosts had made about her appearance during her gender transition.

The transgender activist and Olympic athlete formerly known as Bruce was speaking about her transition during an appearance with "Jimmy Kimmel Live" when the topic came up.

"I had just got the point where, fortunately I had raised 10 wonderful children. Chris and I had gone our separate directions — not because of gender issues but because of other things — and there I was, back in Malibu, all by myself," Jenner recalled, adding that she slowly explained the transition to her children.

"It had been just hammered all over the media for the longest time. In fact, guys like you making mmm some jokes," she said.

"We thought you were just vain," Kimmel replied. We didn’t know what was going on. Sorry about that by the way."

Jenner good naturedly accepted the apology, adding that she had given Jimmy Fallon "a real hard time."

In 2013 Jenner, prior to the transition, made a memorable appearance on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" after grilling the host for remarks he had previously made about Jenner’s plastic surgery.

There has been a long-standing feud between the two over the remarks and, when Jenner bumped into Fallon at an event in London during the Olympics, he told the talk show host to "stop talking s***" about his appearance, noted the Daily Mail.

Appearing on Fallon’s show after that, Jenner proceeded to call the host out on this and, while the tone was comic, there was an underlying awkwardness to the interview.
