Caitlyn Jenner: Call Me Caitlyn

Does it occur to anyone else that the constant and apparently coordinated bashing of the book by other members of the K clan is a deliberate marketing ploy?

The litany of hurt feelings, expressions of resentment and anger ... all stated in a vague manner that seems almost purposeful.   As though they are working together to instill curiosity in the viewer/potential buyer.    What could Caitlyn Jenner have said about Kris and the girls that's so terrible?   Why do they feel so betrayed?  I guess I will have to buy the book to find out!

If they were truly so hurt, it seems to me that a more natural reaction would be a staunch refusal to talk about Jenner's book.   To deprive her of all publicity.   To stop promulgating the alleged lies.  To prevent her from making another dime off their backs.

But they're not.  Instead every one of them is out there talking up the book at every opportunity.

I agree with millennium. All this anger and hurt feelings are bullshit.

I love how Kourtney didn't even bother reading the book, and pretty much assumed Kris was exaggerating. KIm claimed to have read "the whole thing" ..I haven't seen any selfies of her reading so I'm skeptical of that.

But I agree, their demeanor doesn't suggest outrage or hurt, Kim's shown more emotion over a chipped manicure, Kendall over her inability to get grilled cheese in Europe.

Yep. It’s a clever (and desperate) marketing ploy to benefit both parties. Not only is this tempest–in-a-teapot fake feud designed to drive up book sales for Caitlyn since the OJ “revelation” apparently didn’t do the job, but it’s also a ploy to lure more viewers to KUWTK with its steadily declining ratings.

Probably true! Theme for this season of KUWTK: "Let's Hate Cait."

That article by Caitlyn is so badly written. I'm given the sense that some editor skimmed it very quickly, went "Yep, good enough" and then hit approve.

It sort of jumps from topic to topic and you're left going "....okay?" trying to figure out what the point is.

She mentions herself (obviously) several times but there doesn't seem to be any emotion behind her words. When I got to her final paragraph about standing together and being proud of who you are in the trans community, I was a little confused about where that had come from. So far in the essay all she had talked about were HER contributions and HER difficulties. At one point she hand waves that she's met some great people, but there doesn't seem to be any sense of unity or coming together.

 

To me it summarizes a lot about Caitlyn's problems as a trans woman representing the trans community. First, she doesn't have anything interesting or novel to say. There's nothing particularly intelligent in her words, it's basically just a dry recap of things she's done in the past. There's also no strong emotion to it which when talking about such personal experiences, is a little odd.

Secondly, she talks about unity but doesn't explain a clear way to do that. The majority of the essay is based around herself and she stitches in a couple lines at the end about community. It seems like that's something that she feels she's supposed to want, but couldn't be bothered to expand upon it before because it would take precious word space away from her accomplishments.

 

What was the point of this essay in the first place?? Seriously, I'm really struggling to figure it out. If this was a high school essay I feel like it would barely get a passing grade, so why has it been posted online???

This makes me sick.  But I'm not surprised.  They filmed Scott drunk and stoned and smashing mirrors every chance they had, they dragged a semi-lucid Lamar to Madison Square Garden, they parade mentally ill Rob past the cameras and give him two lines to memorize while begging him to not rub his face and smirk...now it's Caitlyn's turn.  And I have no doubt that Kris hands over the weekly royalty check and Caitlyn gleefully cashes it to buy more ill-advised makeup.  They have all sold their souls, every single one.  I just hope the next generation collectively rebels and gets the hell out of Pimp Gramma Kris's klutches before it's too late.

As I was reading, I expected you to say "I just hope the next generation collectively rebels and stops watching this shitshow."

Probably the first checks she's ever been handed by Kris. All the others Kris hoarded away while building her empire and banishing Caitlyn to a corner in the garage.

Wonder if anyone will acknowledge her for Father's day today, so far Cait's 0/6.

Another dog for Kendall! WTF is it with this family and their pets. Where is her big Great Dane, that she had shitting all over her mother's house? Dumped on someone else to take care of, or dead?

Sorry it appears that the Lab is Caitlyn's. I guess she's lonely up in that big house that no one ever comes to visit.  

And sitting the dog on that beautifully painted car? Dogs have nails that can scratch,, I know mine jumped on the hood of my black car and made some nice scratch marks.... but hey as long as they get their photograph, fuck other people's property. Same goes for Kylie sitting on that Ferrari.

Caitlyn Jenner to guest co-host 'The View' next week

The knives are already out on The View's Facebook page.

The prevailing sentiments seem to be, "This person has nothing to contribute, does not represent the LGBT community, so why is The View doing this?" and "I won't be watching."

"Why is the View doing this?"  One word: ratings.

Maybe, but it's been proven by the tanking of I AM CAIT and the bomb that was the Diane Sawyer follow-up interview, Jenner is ratings kryptonite.

The only way I see it being of any interest is if they ask her about Rob...and press her on it.

She'll stick with her usual " I raised Rob from the time he was a baby" "i went to all his sports   meets and cheered him and coached him" " he's a great kid" " I haven't seen much of him lately but I'm sure we'll get together soon" " I love Rob"

Yep.  If she says anything at all.  She may just defer the question as I'm sure they've all been instructed to do by their attorneys.
