“You’ve got to have a sense of humor about it. I say Bruce, I say Caitlyn, I say dad…we mess up all the time. You just laugh it off, who cares?” Brody Jenner tells Yahoo Style’s Joe Zee when discussing his relationship with Caitlyn Jenner in the latest episode of Style Session. “And ultimately, that is my dad. There have been a lot of things that have been difficult to deal with, but ultimately it’s not about me, it’s Caitlyn. Now Caitlyn is in a much happier place. And you only have one life and it’s very short and I think you should be who you are.”
“Be who you are” is a mantra that is also ringing true for the 31-year-old former star of The Hills, who also gets candid about his sex life (what he will and won’t do!) and threesomes timed to the July 10 debut of his new reality TV show on E!, Sex With Brody.
And while it’s true that the Kardashian-Jenner klan is basically owning E! these days, that’s where the family closeness ends. Jenner admits to feeling a special kinship with Kylie and Kendall (he calls himself a “a proud older brother”), though he’s less attached to the Kardashian klan.
“Growing up, we had two completely separate lives,” Jenner confesses. And that includes Kim’s husband. “To be honest, I don’t even really know Kanye that well at all. I’ve really only met him one time,” he says. “That’s the one thing that people don’t really understand is that we live two completely separate lives. And everybody ties us in together as the Kardashians and the Jenners.”
The Malibu-born star also admits that he didn’t buy North West a present when she was born, and is pleasantly surprised to find out the sex of Kim and Kanye’s baby (thanks to Joe Zee!). And although the families are clearly not intertwined, he did tell the Today show that he feels for Kourtney, who is now separated from her husband, Scott Disick. “Obviously Scott’s gone through some issues in the past,” he said. “Honestly, when I saw those pictures I just went ‘Uh oh.’ I even showed my girlfriend and just went like, ‘This isn’t good.’”
One thing this family does know how to do is collectively stir the pot of pop culture. Watch the video to find out more juicy gems—like what he has to say about his girlfriend, sex positions, and personal style.
