Like any major change in a family unit, Bruce Jenner’s transition to Caitlyn Jenner has inevitably been difficult on the Kardashian family. Now, one of the most prominent members, pregnant Kim Kardashian, has opened up about how the family is coping: by using group therapy. Kim, 34, who is pregnant with her second child with husband Kanye West, was speaking at the prestigious Commonwealth Club of California, expressing how much Caitlyn appreciates the amazing amount of support she’s received during her transition, according to Rachel Pilcher. Kim stated the following about Caitlyn.
“The response has been overwhelmingly so positive. I hope people understand it, or have compassion. I hope people are non-judgemental. People have been so amazing and Caitlyn appreciates that so much. We showed everyone in the show because everyone has a different emotional transition of their own to accept this. Sometimes I think it’s about Caitlyn, but it’s the family around. We go to group therapy together.”
Kim also noted that Caitlyn’s transition has had a positive effect on her own life, making her more accepting, and stated the following, according to Yahoo Celebrity.
“Caitlyn has taught me to be less judgemental. I’m just so happy that people have been so open to this change.”
Wearing a black dress and Manolo Blahnik shoes, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star opened up about her stepfather, noting that she hopes that people will continue to be non-judgemental, according to the London Evening Standard. Although Kim indicated that the family goes to group therapy, she didn’t specify whether everyone — including her mother Kris Jenner — participates in the therapy.
“The response has been overwhelmingly so positive. I hope people understand it, or have compassion. I hope people are non-judgemental….We go to group therapy together….I’m just so happy that people have been so open to this change.”
Kardashian also noted that she first met Caitlyn during the much-talked-about Vanity Fair shoot, and she stated the following, according to Yahoo Celebrity.
“It was so beautiful. I actually went to the shoot, and that was my first time meeting Caitlyn…She’s beautiful, and I’m so proud that she can just be her authentic self. I guess that’s what life is about.”
Of course, Kim also dealt with other familiar topics at the Club. According to the Inquisitr, the reality star held a live discussion about the topics she knows best, such as pregnancy, cellulite and weight gain, selfies, and sexual objectification.
