Caitlyn Jenner Opens Up About Having Gender Reassignment Surgery In Memoir

Those that have been ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ for what seems like eons have had all sorts of interesting moments to ponder through the years. There never seems to be a dull moment for the Kardashian clan.

When you combine that with the fact that there seems to be no filter on what they will share, it’s not too hard to see why they remain such a subject of fascination. Of course, the gang's proclivity for sharing anything and everything has led to some questions about their authenticity, but there’s no denying that they put themselves out there for all to see.

As the Daily Mail shares, one of the more fascinating subplots of those intriguing Kardashians in recent years has been the ongoing saga of Caitlyn Jenner. The former husband of family matriarch Kris Jenner has undergone some major changes - to say the least - and those changes haven’t been shielded from the public eye.

In fact, Caitlyn has proceeded through her transition in the most public fashion imaginable, and she offered up even more details about things in her recently published memoir, 'The Secrets of My Life.’

“The surgery was a success, and I feel not only wonderful but liberated. I am telling you because I believe in candor,” she writes.

“So all of you can stop staring. You want to know, so now you know," she began.

"Which is why this is the first time, and the last time, I will ever speak of it.”

We’ll have to wait and see if Caitlyn remains true to her word on that front, but she certainly left nothing to the imagination in terms of her surgery.

“So why even consider it? Because it’s just a penis.

It has no special gifts or use for me other than what I have said before, the ability to take a whiz in the woods,” she added.

“I just want to have all the right parts. I am also tired of tucking the damn thing in all the time.”

Alright. So one of the big ‘secrets’ of her life is no more.

Perhaps that has amounted to a therapeutic experience for Caitlyn, but we’re going to go out on a limb and assume the cool $4 million advance she received for the book had something to do with her spilling the beans in such a way.

Regardless, it sounds like she’s pretty darn pleased with how things are going in her world these days.

“I am going to live authentically for the first time in my life,” she continued. “I am going to have an enthusiasm for life that I have not had in 39 years since the Olympics, almost two thirds of my life.”

That’s awesome, and we wish Caitlyn continued happiness. Nonetheless, it remains awfully curious as to how someone can reveal such personal details in such a willy-nilly fashion.

It comes with the territory with the Kardashian clan and the various branches of that family tree, but it certainly leads observers to wonder what’s ‘real’ and what’s ‘reality.’
