No stranger to reality TV, Big Brother VIP Australia star Caitlyn Jenner knows what it means to drop a bombshell onscreen.
45 years following her gold medal decathlon win at the 1976 Montreal Olympics, the former Kardashian-Jenner patriarch is tackling Big Brother VIP Australia — and lucky for us, she leaves no stone unturned!
Having been on the world stage for most of her life, viewers will already know the many ups and downs the 72-year-old has experienced, from her extensive athletic career to being one of the most prominent celebrities to come out as transgender.
But since the Big Brother VIP Australia series premiere on November 1, Caitlyn has spilled some never-before-heard tea about her life in the spotlight and we are LIVING for it!
Caitlyn Jenner Spills The Tea On Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Wedding
Chatting to Luke Toki and Imogen Anthony, Caitlyn discussed her former step-daughter Kim Kardashian‘s 2014 wedding to Kanye West.
She explained that the couple decided to have the reception the night before the ceremony at Versaille Palace in France.
“They’ve never had a private party there…but Kanye pulls the strings and it’s spectacular,” she said.
Caitlyn, who split from Kim’s mother Kris in 2015, then spilled the details on the reception’s styling, beginning with the extravagant dinner setting.
“The dinner table was at least 100-feet long, white marble,” she recalled. She added that instead of name cards, the guests’ names were engraved into the marble. Talk about boujee AF!
Caitlyn also dished on the surprising detail Kim and Kanye shared at the reception dinner — despite being in France, the wedding was going to be held in Florence the very next day!
And in true Kimye fashion, the pop culture icons had booked two private jets to transport all of their guests to the big event.
Andrea Bocelli’s Performance During Kim and Kanye’s Wedding Ceremony
Caitlyn recalled the “absolutely gorgeous” ceremony, which was held looking over the city of Florence. But for the former Olympian, there was one thing missing.
“I need Bocelli,” she exclaimed of the Italian opera singer. Lo and behold, the renowned Andrea Bocelli appeared to sing Kim down the aisle.
“Finally, Kim comes walking down this very long walkway… to where we are at the bottom of the hill,” Caitlyn reminisced. “And what do I hear? Bocelli!”
She admitted that Kanye had a “great attention to detail”, before explaining how much she liked the rapper.
“I got along very well with Kanye. He was certainly out there, but he was always very, very, very good to me.”
Caitlyn Jenner Discusses Sneaking Around In Women’s Clothing
Taking the opportunity to educate her fellow Big Brother vacationers, Caitlyn shared her trans journey.
Using the analogy of being born left or right-handed to explain that being born trans is no different, Caitlyn questioned Luke as to why she’s right-handed and she isn’t.
“Well, it’s just the way you were born,” Luke responded, hitting the point home for the celebrities.
She then revealed she was 40-years-old when she first spoke to anybody about being transgender and dressing in women’s clothing.
“I snuck around a lot and fortunately, never got caught,” Caitlyn said, adding that going out driving was one of the activities she liked to do dressed as a woman. “It was kind of scary, but it was the only time you could actually… express yourself.
“I did that for, honestly, pretty much most of my life.”
The 72-year-old officially came out as transgender in 2015 during an interview with Diane Sawyer, in which she discussed experiencing gender dysphoria since her formative years.
During Big Brother VIP‘s premiere episode, Caitlyn recalled a time before coming out when a neighbour saw her dressed as a woman. Luckily, it was the day before Halloween and the neighbour assumed Caitlyn was on her way to a party.
She also said Halloween was “big for [her]”, insinuating that it was due to dressing as a woman being more socially acceptable on the holiday.
According To Caitlyn Jenner, OJ Simpson “Did It”
Chatting to her fellow housemates, Caitlyn revealed how “extraordinarily difficult” it was living through the O.J. Simpson trial.
The former American footballer was acquitted in 1995 of the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. Nicole was also Kris Jenner’s best friend.
“Obviously, he did it and he got away with it,” Caitlyn expressed, adding: “I was at Nicole’s house two days before the murder.”
The conversation began after NRL giant Matt Cooper mentioned he had recently watched The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story, which details the brutal trial.
According to Caitlyn, OJ had told Nicole prior to her death that he’d “kill [her] and get away with it because [he’s] O.J. Simpson”. OMG.
