Caitlyn Jenner On Her Tumultuous Relationship With Ellen DeGeneres After Their Interview About Marriage Equality

Caitlyn Jenner is speaking more on her rocky relationship with Ellen DeGeneres.

It all began when after Caitlyn appeared on The Ellen Show in 2015, only a few months after she came out as transgender.

“I’m older than most people in the audience,” Caitlyn said. “I kind of like tradition, and it’s always been a man and a woman, and I’m thinking ‘I don’t quite get it,’” she said, before noting that her stance had changed over the years.

In the interview, Ellen asked Caitlyn, who is an open Republican, about her thoughts on same sex marriage.

“I’m older than most people in the audience,” Caitlyn said. “I kind of like tradition, and it’s always been a man and a woman, and I’m thinking ‘I don’t quite get it,’” she said, before noting that her stance had changed over the years.

“I don’t ever want to stand in front of anybody’s happiness. … If that word ‘marriage’ is really, really that important to you, then I can go with it,” she said.

As of late, Caitlyn has since reflected on the years-long feud and admitted she would have done things differently if she had the chance.

“I tried to do my best and I thought I did okay, but looking back on it I could’ve handled a couple of things a little bit differently,” she said of the interview.

“I didn’t think she would respond the way she did,” Caitlyn said of Ellen’s reaction. “She goes to me, ‘Well it sounds like you’re really not for it,’” she continued.

“And I said, ‘No, I just said, I’m for gay marriage,’” she said.

“The next week [Ellen] goes on Howard Stern’s show in New York… and says I was against gay marriage,” Caitlyn said, adding that the talk show host “absolutely burnt her a**.”

“And so in the media, I got really tough on her,” Caitlyn added.

“I thought maybe I should call Kris [Jenner] and say, ‘Kris, why don’t you just ban any of the kids being on Ellen,” Caitlyn admitted. “But I didn’t,” she added, admitting she did not want to get involved and instead “let them do their thing.”

Ellen then went on to publicly speak out against Caitlyn on The Howard Stern Show, saying: “She still has a judgment about gay marriage,” Ellen said of Caitlyn. “And I said, ‘You’re wanting people to understand and accept you … and you still have a judgment about gay people and marriage.'”

“I don’t really know her,” she went on to say, “and I’m trying to understand it because I don’t fully understand it either but I also want everybody to be happy. I want her to be happy, which is what I want for her, for me.”

To which Caitlyn clapped back: “This discussion further alienated me from members of the LGBTQ community… Ellen’s appearance on The Howard Stern Show, where in my mind she even more emphatically took what I said out of context, made it go viral.”
