If you can’t get enough of the newest star in the E! universe, you are in luck. “I Am Cait” premieres on Sunday, July 26th, 9pm. The 8-part documentary, airing in one hour segments, focuses on the life of Caitlyn Jenner. It is not clear if the documentary will lead to a season long series or what future role Jenner will play in the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” series.
During an interview for “I am Cait,” Jenner comments on what it will be like to one day blend into society and be considered normal. When affirmed and reminded that she is normal, her response is, “Let’s put it this way, I am the new normal.”
The series follows the transition of Caitlyn, including a new awakening to gender issues of which she was previously unaware – such as fully appreciating the pressure women feel to look good at times. She reveals initially getting help from a make-up artist to learn to apply make up. If the broken internet reaction is any indication, she has nothing to worry about. Leave it to Whoopi Goldberg to say what some of us are thinking about Caitlyn Jenner! HELLO, gorgeous!
Caitlyn debuted with a look that made some of you think of perennial goddess and fan favorite, Jessica Lange.
Once Ms. Lange was informed by the Daily Beast that she was trending on twitter in connection with Caitlyn Jenner’s debut (and learned what “trending on twitter” meant), Lange issued the following comment,
“That’s so wonderful. Well, now I’m going to have to look for that picture.”
Others picked up on a resemblance between Caitlyn Jenner and “Southern Charm’s,” Patricia Altschul that is uncanny.
Clearly you have inspired Bravo to ask, which of your favorite Bravolebrities does Caitlyn Jenner favor most? Whether you believe she resembles Jessica Lange, or Patricia Altschul, it seems clear that Caitlyn Jenner is enjoying her life and is clearly her own person. Best wishes, Ms. Jenner.
I hope the series, in even a small way, pays tribute to trans-advocates, such as Laverne Cox (Orange is the New Black, I Want to Work for Diddy) and Janet Mock (Redefining Realness) who helped shape national discussions about identity and acceptance, and kicked open a lot of doors.
I’m an exasperated soap fan who keeps hanging on – waiting for the daytime I once loved to return to its former glory! Hey, it doesn’t hurt to have a dream. I learned to love soaps thanks to my wonderful mother and grandmother. I’ll always have fond memories of daytime, most especially of ‘Another World’, my first stoap love. The ever great, but sadly defunct, daytime shows like Ryan’s Hope, Search for Tomorrow, The Doctors, Loving, and many others keep a special place in my heart, as well.
