The hugely anticipated docu-series I Am Cait had its American premiere earlier this week on E!, but the show hasn't received as many positive reactions as were expected. 

It seems like we have been waiting a LONG time for this series to air; certainly, it has been hugely publicised since Caitlyn underwent gender transitioning earlier this year. 

Even with all the hype the show received, viewing figures were not as high as the show producers had expected – and some of the reviews have so far been far from positive. 

The first episode brought in around 2.7million viewers, which is just above what Keeping Up With The Kardashians usually brings in, but is still well under what was expected.

These numbers are compared to a huge 17million who tuned in to watch Caitlyn's interview with Diane Sawyer and 8million who watched her ESPY's acceptance speech. 

Furthermore, many viewers felt it was staged and scripted rather than being true 'reality' TV. 

The New York Times reported that "there’s no reason to doubt Ms Jenner’s sincerity when she cites statistics about suicide among transgender teenagers or consoles a grieving parent, but you also can’t help noticing how she seems to be reading from a script.”

Vulture.com was also dismissive, saying "each scene felt as choreographed as a ballet, as deftly applied as the hair extensions we see Kylie and Cait giggle over: Fake, but fake for our behalf."

The programme will air on August 2 in Ireland. 


We all know just how much Kris Jenner likes to be, ahem, involved, in her family’s life, so we’re pretty sure she won’t be best pleased about Bruce Jenner’s latest move.

While the former couple seem to be on great terms, it looks like Bruce is after some distance as he has reportedly sacked his ex-wife as a manager to go it alone.

According to The Sun, the former Olympian, who officially revealed he was to become a woman in an inspirational interview with Diane Sawyer, wants to film his journey in his own reality show.

A source told the paper: "Kris is as you see on the show – bossy, nosey and controlling. She didn't want to relinquish control because it makes it harder for her to sort out fees for Keeping Up With The Kardashians."

The couple, who were married for over 20 years before separating in 2013, always seemed to have a good relationship, with Kris showing her support for Bruce’ transition. 

Bruce now needs to look for a new manager for his eight-part series to be aired in the summer.

Talking about Bruce, Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Programming and Development of E!, said: "Bruce is incredibly courageous and an inspiration, and we are proud to be entrusted with this deeply personal and important story. This series will present an unfiltered look as Bruce boldly steps into uncharted territory and is true to himself for the first time.”

We love Bruce here and we can't wait for his new show!



It was the moment that we had waited for, and last night Bruce Jenner finally confirmed his gender transition to the world during an emotional 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer.

The 65-year-old Olympic gold medallist and reality star revealed all during the highly-anticipated special, and gave an emotional insight into his decision.

“For all intents and purposes, I am a woman,” he told Sawyer. “My brain is much more female than it is male. That’s what my soul is. Bruce lives a lie. ‘She’ is not a lie. I can’t do it anymore.”

Bruce told Sawyer that ‘she’ has been a part of his life from an early age, and revealed that as a child he would try on his mother’s dresses to make himself ‘feel good’, but put them back before anyone would notice.

He also admitted that he has been dressing in women’s clothing privately for quite some time now, and while he wasn’t ready to introduce ‘her’ to the world yet, he did bring Diane into his closet to show her some of his dresses.

Bruce revealed that he plans to completely transform into a woman, and he is currently taking female hormones. He insisted, however, that – as far as he knows – he is heterosexual.

The star expressed his concern for his family in anticipation of the interview broadcasting worldwide, but also admitted that he is excited about the future.

When asked by Diane if he was going to be okay, Bruce replied: “Yeah. I hope I’m going to be okay. I feel like I’m going to be okay. 2015 is going to be quite a ride.”

“I’ve got my health; I’ve got my children; I’ve got my family; I’ve got seven grandkids now – I’m actually really excited about the future; about what I could be able to do, to do some real good in the world,” he added.

Needless to say, Bruce’s family came out in full support on their social media accounts, with 17-year-old daughter Kylie paying tribute to her dad.

“Understandingly, this has been very hard for me. You will hear what I have to say when I’m ready to but…this isn’t about me. I’m so proud of you, Dad. You are so brave. My beautiful Hero,” she tweeted.

Ex-wife Kris also hailed Bruce as her ‘hero’, writing: “Not only was I able to call him my husband for 25 years and father of my children, I am now able to call him my hero.”

We can’t imagine how nerve-wracking that moment must have been for Bruce. We wish him every happiness for the future.


Proud son.

Bruce Jenner will reportedly finally address his decision to transition to life as a woman in a two-hour long interview special later this month.

The exclusive sit-down discussion with veteran journalist Diane Sawyer will air on Friday, April 24th on ABC.

Now, the first trailer has been revealed, and if definitely seems like this interview will contain the admission we've all been waiting for.

The sneak peek, which shows Bruce from the back for most of it, was aired in a commercial break during last night's episode of Grey's Anatomy in the US.
