While promoting her memoir, The Secrets of My Life, on Live With Kelly, Caitlyn Jenner spoke about the time in her life right before meeting now-ex-wife Kris Jenner. In the 1980s, still Bruce at the time, he had gone through some rough years while preparing to transition into a woman, then deciding not to at the time. After this, he needed to get his life back together, and that’s where Kris comes in.
“I got to the point I thought I would transition before I was 40. And that would have been in 1990. I got to 39 after six years of isolating myself from the world and just couldn’t go any further. I think it just wasn’t time and I thought, ‘Maybe I should get back into life.’ Six months later I met Kris,” Jenner said.
Caitlyn said that gender issues were discussed with Kris, though they may have been downplayed at the time, and despite their differences in recent years, Caitlyn credits Kris with helping to get life back on track.
“She turned my life around. She really did. She got me back into work. She got me back working out. She did a lot of really, really good things. And we wound up having wonderful children and I picked up four more stepkids,” Jenner said, adding, “She changed my life around.”
