Two years after revealing her identity as a transgender women, Caitlyn Jenner has confirmed she has undergone gender reassignment surgery.
“The surgery was a success, and I feel not only wonderful but liberated," she writes in her first memoir The Secrets of My Life, out later this month.
The former Olympian says she is constantly asked if she's had the surgery by fans and hopes this is the first and last time she'll have to address it.
"So why even consider it? Because it’s just a penis. It has no special gifts or use for me," writes Caitlyn. "I just want to have all the right parts. I am also tired of tucking the damn thing in all the time.”
"I am going to have an enthusiasm for life that I have not had in 39 years since the Olympics," she adds. "Almost two thirds of my life."
Caitlyn has previously had breast augmentation and facial feminisation surgery as part of her transition. She's earned an impressive $4million advance for her tell-all book.

Khloe Kardashian doesn't hold back, does she!? The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star answered a lot of questions in a radio interview with Howard Stern yesterday.
The 31-year-old was promoting her new show, Kocktails With Khloe, but Howard Stern obviously asked her about her famous family - mainly Caitlyn Jenner. Khloe claims that Caitlyn lied so much about her gender transition that she couldn't keep her story together.
"People would think that we were lying … But no, we believed him," Kardashian explained, adding that she first found out about Bruce Jenner's plans to transition during an E! meeting.
"They mentioned Bruce had a television show about transitioning, and that's the first we heard of it … We felt betrayed because more business people [knew]."
"We felt so, like, what the fuck! We've been asking you, and why do [business ] people know? I never want someone to feel like they have a one-up on our family," she continued.
"We've never turned our backs on each, with all the cluster fucks of shit in our lives, so why would we now?"
Kardashian added that she would try to talk to Caitlyn, but that she would shy away. "He would only want to talk to us on-camera," Kardashian revealed. "I think for security he felt we couldn't get upset [on-camera] or whatever."[ id="6G7u2DhRuO"]
She even explained that the Vanity Fair cover was a shock.
"He did have private talks with us after," she explained. "But he never said he was going to transition. He would just say his soul has always been a woman."
In fact, it was only the Diane Sawyer interview which really answered the questions they had.
"Bruce made it a point for all of us to watch it together, and that's when it was the first time we heard a lot of things," she recalled. "We didn't even know about Diane Sawyer until it was taped and done. On that show is when we genuinely found out about transitioning."
So there you have it, folks.

Yikes! The Keeping Up With The Kardashians momager wasn't very happy with Caitlyn Jenner's Vanity Fair interview.
In a new episode of KUWTK in America, Kris Jenner was furious with her ex-husband - who was formerly known as Bruce - after Caitlyn accused Kris of bullying her during their 24 years of marriage in her first interview as a woman.
Kris ranted: "It just sums up that I'm this piece of s**t person who was mean. He can go f**k himself. I honestly wish I never met this man."
Kim Kardashian West can be seen telling her mum: "All Caitlyn can talk about is that my mom mistreated her and was awful, and just all these really rude things when there's no reason to bash my mom."
Khloe, 31, agreed. She added: "Don't discredit all these children that you guys brought into the mix. We don't believe in bashing anybody. We don't bash any parents. I expect her to do the same."

Things have been ever so tense between Caitlyn Jenner and her ex-wife Kris Jenner - but it appears the two have kissed and made up. Well, sort of.
On the finale episode of I Am Cait - which airs next week here in the UK - the two made peace.
"I just want to get to a place where it's comfortable for us to share celebrations together," Caitlyn Jenner said.
Later she told the camera, "Maybe it'll be a little different in the future. I hope it is, because I want to keep my relationship with all my kids."
When Caitlyn asked her ex if maybe they could go shopping together in the future, Kris replied, "Don't push it." Meanwhile Caitlyn said that while she didn't agree with everything Kris had to say, "communication is always good."
How did they end things? With a selfie.

Caitlyn Jenner has revealed who she looks to for style inspiration and you might be surprised that it's not Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner or even Kris Jenner. Nope, it's Angelina Jolie.
In a new clip from next week's episode of I Am Cait (which aired in the US last night), we see Cait getting ready for the 2015 ESPYs.
The 65-year-old former Olympian, who ended up wearing a gorgeous, white Atelier Versace gown, enlisted the help of stylist Jen Rade.
"The bottom line is, I really need a professional to coordinate everything," Caitlyn says in the clip. "She does Angelina Jolie and I just love her look. Very casual, very elegant, chic, so I'm dying to meet her."
At the time of the ESPYs, Jen Rade said: "From sketch to stage....my eternal gratitude to @[email protected] & @beladorajewlery for helping create this look. And especially to @caitlynjenner for allowing me into your life. You are gracious, kind, and beautiful inside and out. It was an honor."
We now really want an Ange & Cait get-together - can someone sort this, please?

In the new episode of I Am Cait, there is a scene where Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner finally get together for a face-to-face, and it's very awkward.
Tensions are high when Kris arrives at the former Olympian's Malibu home to talk about their children and other family matters.
"I don't know if we'll resolve anything but I should probably get some things off my chest," Caitlyn is overheard saying during the clip.
"We've moved on, both of us, but I don't want to throw all of the good times away. And for the kids, Kendall and Kylie, I don't want tension. I don't want to put them in a tough position. This is really very, very difficult."
Earlier this month, E! released a sneak peek showing Kris confronting her former spouse, saying, "You're sensitive and amazing to all these new people in your life, you're just not so sensitive and amazing to the family that you left behind."
She then begins to cry and is shown adding, "When you feel like you gave your whole life to somebody and the sum of it all was you were a distraction..."
Caitlyn quickly interjects and defends herself by telling Kris, "It was a distraction from the sense of who I was, it doesn't mean I didn't love you or the kids."

Kim was referring to comments made in Caitlyn's iconic Vanity Fair feature, in which she explained that Kris had a big part in the break-down of their marriage: "Twenty per cent was gender and 80 per cent was the way I was treated."
She also mentioned how "A lot of times she [Kris] wasn't very nice. People would see how I got mistreated. She controlled the money... all that kind of stuff."
After the clash between Kim, Khloe and Caitlyn aired, Khloe tweeted about the situation: "I loved the Vanity Fair article! just didn't think Caitlyn needed to mention my mom in the article. Spread love and not hate (sic)."

Caitlyn Jenner has opened up about her sexuality while speaking to her transgender friends.
In a preview clip of an upcoming episode of I Am Cait, Caitlyn revealed she thinks, "You would feel more feminine if you were with a guy."
She continued: "I can appreciate the male form."
These statements come after she spoke to Diane Sawyer back in April and said that she would consider herself "asexual for now" and thought of herself as heterosexual: "As far as I know, I've never been with a guy. I've always been married, raising kids."
Diane later asked if "you can desire a woman every bit as much?" "Yeah, yeah," Caitlyn responded.

It's not easy going from a he to a she - just ask Caitlyn Jenner.
Here she is trying to do her "best feminine voice" for Kim Kardashian and Malika Haqq and we have to admit, we did have a little giggle - but mainly at Kim's reaction.
[Html##<iframe src="http://uk.eonline.com/videos/embed/238727" width="610" height="344" frameBorder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>##Id¬19feqm]
Caitlyn tells the girls about how, before she identified as a female, she wanted to know what life would be like when others accepted that she is a woman. "Like if you call down to room service, OK?" she recalls. "I'd be sitting there in my little room, all by my lonesome, and I'd think OK! I'm going to try to get my best feminine voice and call down so they say, 'Yes, ma'am.' I could never do it."
"Try it," Kim Kardashian says. "I'll tell you if you get a 'yes, ma'am.'"
Malika Haqq adds, "Let's hear her!"
"Front desk!" Kardashian says while impersonating a hotel employee. "Hey, this is room service. How can I help you?" Then, as herself, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star instructs, "Order bacon and eggs and an orange juice and toast."
"Yes, actually, you can help me!" Jenner says.
Kardashian laughs and yells, "You sound no different!"
"I didn't think so!" Jenner says in agreement.
"Sir! What would you like, sir?" Kardashian teases.
"See!" Jenner says. "That's the problem!"
Jenner can laugh about it now, sure, but not then. "Women cannot relate to the whole voice thing," she explains. "They don't see it as being that important when it is that important, not only for you to speak and order and do all that kind of stuff, but very important for your soul that you're feeling good about that."
After accepting the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs, Jenner said she was still insecure. "While I felt like I looked great and that the gown looked fabulous, I still have a voice issue," she blogged. "It's not quite right compared to my feminine appearance. That bothers me a little bit. However, I hope that people don't listen to the pitch of my voice, but listen to what I have to say. That's important to me."

The first episode of Caitlyn Jenner's much talked-about eight-part series I Am Cait aired in the US last night, a week ahead of its UK air date.
The docuseries chronicles Caitlyn's journey as a transgender woman, and features many emotional moments as the star moves on with her life post-transition.
If you can't wait until next Sunday to see the first episode, here's what happens:
- In a heartfelt scene, Kylie meets Caitlyn for the first time over FaceTime, and assures her worried dad that she isn't scaring her. "You're not scaring me," says Kylie. "You look pretty!"
- Caitlyn pays a visit to the friends and family of a transgender teen who committed suicide and mentors the group, telling them: "We're all beautiful."
- Former Olympian Caitlyn shows off some serious tennis skills, joking: "Now I know why girls need a sports bra!"
- Caitlyn also clears up rumours about her relationship with Ronda Kamihara, a friend of ex-wife Kris', explaining: "Years ago I confided in Ronda, and she really has been a friend that supported me." Jenner revealed that Ronda has acted as his stylist.
- In many emotional scenes, Jenner reveals her worries about the impact her transition will have on her family, and her responsibilities as a role-model. "Even Kylie coming over today - you never know, when they get away from here and they go home they go 'Oh my god, that is strange,'" she said. "Khloé hasn't been here. Kourtney hasn't been here and hasn't met Caitlyn. Rob. Maybe them not being around is, you know, kind of their way of saying 'I don't really agree with this or what.'" Jenner worries whether she's giving the right message as a transgender advocate. "Am I going to do everything right? Am I going to say the right things? Do I project the right image?"

Caitlyn has received support from the whole Jenner-Kardashian family, including Kanye West.
"It's one of the strongest things that has happened," he told Caitlyn on the show.
"You couldn't have been up against more, your daughters, you're a celebrity and it was still like fuck everybody, this is who I am."
West's support has meant a lot to Caitlyn.

Caitlyn Jenner gave a moving 10-minute acceptance speech last night as she was honoured with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs.
The awards marked the 65-year-old's first big public appearance since announcing her transition to a woman in April. Jenner became emotional as she delivered the speech in front of her children, saying: "Trans people deserve something vital. They deserve your respect."
"Before a few months ago I had never met anybody else who was trans, who was like me," she said.
"I had never met a trans person, never. Now, as you saw, I dealt with my situation on my own in private and that turned this journey into an already incredible education.
"It's been eye-opening, inspiring, but also frightening. All across this country, right now, all across the world, at this very moment, there are young people coming to terms with being transgender. They're learning that they are different and they are trying to figure out how to handle that, on top of every other problem that a teenager has.
"They're getting bullied, they're getting beaten up, they're getting murdered and they're committing suicide. The numbers that you just heard before are staggering, but they are the reality of what it is like to be trans today.
"Just last month, the body of 17-year-old Mercedes Williamson, a transgender young woman of color, was found in a field in Mississippi stabbed to death. I also want to tell you about Sam Taub, a 15-year-old transgender young man from Bloomfield, Michigan. In early April, Sam took his won life. Now, Sam's story haunts me in particular because his death was a few days before my interview with Diane Sawyer. Every time something like this happens, people wonder, 'Could it have been different, if spotlighting this issue with more attention could have changed the way things happen?' We'll never know.
"If there is one thing I do know about my life, it is the power of the spotlight. Sometimes it gets overwhelming, but with attention comes responsibility. As a group, as athletes, how you conduct your lives, what you say, what you do, is absorbed and observed by millions of people, especially young people.
"I know I'm clear with my responsibility going forward, to tell my story the right way - for me, to keep learning, to reshape the landscape of how trans issues are viewed, how trans people are treated. And then more prominently to promote a very simple idea: accepting people for who they are. Accepting people's differences.
"My plea to you tonight is to join me in making these issues your issues as well. How do we start? We start with education. I was fortunate to meet Arthur Ashe a few times and I know how important education was to him. Learn as much as you can about another person to understand them better."

Former winners of the award include Michael Sam, the first openly gay NFL player, and breast cancer survivor Robin Roberts.

Caitlyn Jenner's new TV show, I Am Cait, is premiering next month, and now we can REALLY get excited because we've got a glam promo photo from E!
In the elegant shot above, the 65-year-old icon turns her back to the camera while modelling a floor-length black gown that features a cinched waist and a lace back. With her hair in a messy up-do and her nails painted pink, Caitlyn Jenner looks more confident than ever before.
Since revealing to Diane Sawyer (and a whopping 19 million viewers) that she is transgender, Jenner has often said that she finally feels "free" to be her true self.
Indeed, as the Olympic gold medallist explained in Vanity Fair's July issue, "To be able to wake up in the morning, be yourself, get dressed, get ready to go out and just be, like, a normal person - that's a wonderful feeling to go through life. I've never been able to do that; It's always been confusion. It's always been, you know, I've got one side [of the closet with] boy clothes, the other side's women's clothes. It's like I cleaned the whole closet out-the boys stuff is gone, OK?"
In the same story, Caitlyn Jenner also explained the purpose of I Am Cait.
Regarding the inevitable criticism she will face for filming her journey, she said, "I'm not doing it for money. I'm doing it to help my soul and help other people. If I can make a dollar, I certainly am not stupid. [I have] house payments and all that kind of stuff. I will never make an excuse for something like that. Yeah, this is a business...[but] you don't go out and change your gender for a television show."
Caitlyn Jenner hopes that I Am Cait will inspire people to live their truths.
"So many people go through life and they've never had to deal with their own issues-no matter what those issues are," she said in the show's first promo. "Ours happen to be about gender identity, but how many people go through life and waste an entire life because they never deal with themselves-to be who they are?"
I Am Cait premieres Sunday 2 August at 9pm, on E!

A whole host of stars have taken to Twitter to celebrate Caitlyn Jenner's new Vanity Fair cover.
Kim Kardashian-West says the whole family support Caitlyn Jenner. The stepdaughter of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star says the whole Kardashian and Jenner family love the former Olympian - who was known as Bruce Jenner before transitioning into a woman - "no matter what" but also admitted more support is needed for those in the transgender community.
She told GLAMOUR magazine in the US: "No matter what, we love [Caitlyn]. I know [she] feels great that [her] whole family does support [her].
"I feel for people that don't have that support. There's such a high suicide rate in the transgender community, which is heartbreaking."
Kim also tweeted her support for the 65-year-old star, posting the message alongside a picture of Caitlyn on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine, her first photo shoot as a woman.
She wrote: "Caitlyn Jenner for Vanity Fair. Annie Leibovitz! How beautiful! Be happy, be proud, live life YOUR way! (sic)"
Khloe Kardashian, Caitlyn's stepdaughter, also took to Instagram to share her thoughts on the "beautiful" feature.
She said: "We were given this life because you were strong enough to live it! I couldn't be prouder!!! Caitlyn, You are beautiful!!! (sic)"
Caitlyn's daughter Kendall Jenner tweeted a snap from the photo shoot, captioning it: "now that's a cover. be free now pretty bird. (sic)" whilst sister Kylie Jenner simply stated: "My angel on earth! #caitlyn (sic)"
Kourtney also shared an inside snapshot of Caitlyn at the wheel of a sports car, looking sleek in a bright-red, form-fitting dress. "Get the Porsche out the damn garage," Kris Jenner's eldest daughter wrote on Instagram. "#Caitlyn."
The Daily Beast spoke to actress Jessica Lange about the uncanny resemblance, and she replied: "Oh really? That's so wonderful. Well, now I'm going to have to look for that picture."
Caitlyn's ex Linda Thompson also took to social media to share her thoughts about the cover. "This changed my life forever...but it is so not about me," the former Olympian's second wife wrote on Instagram. "It's been an amazing journey & transition...challenging to understand & accept at times...but I am grateful for so many kind, intelligent, evolved hearts who have risen to that challenge...life is a complex, variant, beautiful gift to be lived authentically by each of us."
Brandon Jenner's wife also followed up with a sweet message on Instagram that evening. "You're finally free, Cait," Leah wrote alongside a photo of Caitlyn in her gown. "#courageouswoman I love you."[ id="3aAZIhx5OT"]
Caitlyn also has her own Twitter watchdog - is a Twitter account set up to politely correct Twitter users who misgender Caitlyn Jenner in their tweets.

Caitlyn Jenner totally just trumped Kim Kardashian's baby news with her #CallMeCaitlyn Vanity Fair cover. And if that's not enough - she has joined Twitter, too!
The former Olympian - who was known as Bruce Jenner before transitioning to a woman - has spoken out for the first time since her recent tell-all interview with Diane Sawyer in a feature accompanied by her first pictures as a woman, which were taken by acclaimed photographer Annie Leibovitz.
Caitlyn said: "If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, 'You just blew your entire life.'"
She has also set up her , writing on the micro blogging site: "I'm so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. Can't wait for you to get to know her/me."
Meanwhile, in a previous interview, where Caitlyn confirmed she would be transitioning into a woman, she admitted she wasn't quite ready to announce the name she had chosen just yet.
She said: "If I do [reveal the name], the media will go crazy and I'll never get rid of them," before joking that it wouldn't begin with a K like her ex-wife Kris Jenner, step-daughters Kim Kardashian West, Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian and her daughters Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
In other pictures from the shoot - which were taken at her Malibu home - Caitlyn is seen wearing a multitude of beautiful outfits including a ball gown and a sequinned dress.

Bruce Jenner has confessed to stealing Kim Kardashian's clothes.
In part two of E!'s Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce special - in which he opens up about his decision to transition to a woman - the 65-year-old star receives fashion advice from his stepdaughter and admits he used to sneak garments out of her wardrobe.
In the show, due to air here on 24 May, Kim opens her cupboard and tells her stepfather about her love of polo necks.
Bruce then admits that he has a confession to make, to which 34-year-old Kim replies: "You copy my outfits?"
The former Olympian responds, saying: "No, I stole your outfit!"
The first instalment of the show saw Bruce Jenner reveal to his family that he is planning to undergo full gender reassignment surgery.
His confession came after Kim claimed she first saw him in a dress 12 years ago but ran off because she didn't want him to know she'd been seen.

The show aired in America last night, but Keeping Up With The Kardashians: About Bruce will broadcast in the UK on Sunday 24 May at 9pm - on E!
Scroll down to watch some emotional trailers from the show, including Kim Kardashian West comforting a tearful Kris Jenner as she questions whether her "memories were real".
The 34-year-old star has admitted Bruce's decision to become a woman has been tough on her mother and left her confused about whether the couple were living a lie throughout their 24-year marriage - which produced two daughters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
Kim took to her Twitter account to tweet as she watched the first Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce episode about his sex change.
In an emotional post about Kris, she revealed: "Breaks my heart my mom questions if her memories were real. That was 4sure a part of Bruce's life. Must be hard to go thru this as his wife (sic)"
Kim admitted she was tearful throughout the powerful episode but is so proud of Bruce and her family for dealing with the issue in such an open manner.
In a series of posts, she wrote: "West coast tune into E! I'm watching KUWTK About Bruce! ... The most emotional ever! ... Awwww the tears! Watching this back & reliving this is harder than I imagined! I'm happy we opened up & shared our journey ... WE WERE VERY OPEN IN HOPES TO HELP OTHER FAMILIES GOING THRU THIS (sic)"
Kim also praised her stepfather Bruce for being brave enough to make this life-changing decision now and for the way he has handled it with each one of his kids and stepchildren.
She tweeted: "Must have been so hard for Bruce to explain his story to each of us. Can u imagine?! I respect him so much 4 opening up & being so truthful (sic)"

If you were wondering why Bruce Jenner chose to open up about his decision to live life as a transgender woman in an interview with Diane Sawyer rather than family reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, you can worry no more.
E! has announced a new two-part special titled Keeping Up With The Kardashians: About Bruce, which will air in the UK on Sunday 24 May at 9pm.
The promotional material for the reality special states: "Honest, raw, emotional conversations with Bruce Jenner and Kris, Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, Kendall, Kylie and Scott are captured in the unfiltered, exclusive special as Bruce opens up to his family about his life as a transgender woman.
"In the special Kris, Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, Kendall, Kylie and Scott speak candidly with Bruce, ask many questions and begin to understand the tough journey he's been on his entire life. Through difficult and direct conversations, the family's unfiltered reactions are surprising, thoughtful and ultimately compassionate and supportive."

Bruce Jenner is planning a career as a motivational speaker after coming out as transgender. It's not the first time he's taken to the speaker circuit, after winning an Olympic medal in the 70s, he earned $5,000 a session at events.
"It was very lucrative for him in the past and now he has a whole new audience," a source said.
"Bruce will be in greater demand than anybody. He could make tens of thousands per engagement."
The star isn't planning to revive this part of his career, just for the money, he also wants to "change the world" with his announcement.
"What I'm doing is going to do some good. And we're going to change the world. I really firmly believe that. We're going to make a difference in the world with what we're doing," he told Diane Sawyer in an interview.

Kim Kardashian has been talking about Bruce Jenner's gender transition. "What do we call him? Do we say him or her? How do we be respectful? There's so many different things that you just want to be supportive and you just want to be respectful, and I think that everything takes time."
"I mean, Bruce wants us to feel as comfortable as possible and take everything at our own pace, and we love him for that, and we respect him for that."
"Until that transition is done, we've learned that you do refer to him as him. He's been really, really good at explaining everything to us, even though it's really new. These have been newer feelings - not newer feelings for him, but for us to digest. He's done a really good job of walking us through it."
But while the reality TV star says she doesn't "fully understand" what her stepfather is going through, she is happy for him.
"I'm really happy for him that he is living his life the way he wants to live it. And that he has found inner peace and just pure happiness. That's what life is about."
"I don't know what life would be like if you always felt like you weren't yourself. I know it's not something that you or I could really fully understand, but I don't even think we have to."
"As long as he is happy, and he wants to live his life, however he wants to live it, that just makes me happy. And I support him 100 percent."
Kim also revealed how the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan came to terms with Bruce's decision and how her siblings sat through "hundreds of family meetings" and went through "every emotion possible".

Last night, Bruce Jenner opened up in an exclusive interview with Diane Sawyer about his decision to change gender at the age of 65. Here's everything that we learnt from his emotional confession…
1. Bruce Jenner: "I'm a woman"
"For all intents and purposes, I'm a woman,. People look at me differently. They see you as this macho male, but my heart and my soul and everything that I do in life - it is part of me."

2. It's not a publicity stunt
"We're going to make a difference in the world with what we're doing, and if the whole Kardashian show gave me a foothold into that world, to be able to go out there and do something good, I've got no problem with that," Jenner said.
3. He wore his mum's dresses when he was 8-years-old
"I marked the closet so when I put it back I could put it all back, everything back in the exact same spot so I wouldn't get caught," Jenner said. "And, at the time, I didn't know why I was doing it besides it just made me feel good."
4. He told his first wife first
"I said 'these are my issues. This is what I deal with.' And they think I do a little cross dressing, I do a little of this, a little of that, you know, 'it's going to be fine, we'll work all this stuff out."

"No, I'm not gay. I am not gay, I am, as far as I know, heterosexual," Jenner said.

7. Brandon Jenner is proud of his dad

8. Kim Kardashian caught Bruce wearing a dress
"Kim caught me one time, walked in," he said. "She kind of walked out and jumped in the car and went for a ride, and I tried to call her and said, 'hey, are you OK?' ... it was like this big secret in the family and we never talked about it again."
9. Kanye West helped Kim Kardashian understand
"Kim told me a story," Jenner said. "She goes, 'you know what really turned me around on thinking about this?' I said, 'what?' She goes, 'Kanye.' I went, 'oh, OK.' … they were talking about it, and he says to Kim, 'Look, I can be married to the most beautiful woman in the world, and I am. I can have the most beautiful little daughter in the world, I have that. But I'm nothing if I can't be me.'"
10. He contemplated suicide
"I thought wouldn't the easiest thing right now ... just go in the room, get a gun, boom. Pain's over, it's done, go to a better place, but then I thought I wanted to see how the story ends."

Bruce Jenner showed Diane his walk-in wardrobe where he had one section for female clothes and the other for mens.
12. His plan for being female
"If this is the only problem I have in life, I've got it made, if it's only this then I'm okay. I've got my health, my family and seven grandchildren. I hope I'm going to be okay, 2015 is going to be quite a ride."

Jenner was photographed in his home wearing a striped dress earlier this week, images that have been described as intrusive by several media outlets. New York Post, who originally published the shots, have since taken down the pictures.
He is expected to announce that he is transitioning from male to female in an impending interview with US journalist Diane Sawyer on 24 April.
Dunham voiced her support of the reality television star on Twitter, followed by Big Brother host Rylan Clarke.
Earlier this month, Boy George commended Jenner's bravery.
"I absolutely applaud what he's doing and I think it's very brave," the singer told People. "And it actually makes me quite emotional. He has my 150 percent support in every way."

We haven't covered this story in great detail, mainly because we were unsure about how true it was, and whether it was all just a lot of 'family sources' telling us that Bruce Jenner is transitioning into a woman, when in fact, we know zilch.
But on 24 April the truth will finally come out.
Bruce is set to discuss his "life-changing decision" with ABC news reporter Diane Sawyer in an interview set to air 24 April.
Teaser trailers have been released - the first didn't even show Bruce's face - but the second one sees Bruce walking with Diane. He also shares one line. "My whole life has been getting me ready for this."
The interview will reportedly deal with Bruce's rumoured gender transition.
The former Olympian has admitted his only concern during the transition will be his children Burt, 36, Casey, 34, Brandon, 33, Brody, 31, Kendall, 19 and Kylie, 17.
The reality TV star - who also has four stepchildren, Rob, 28, Khloe, 30, Kourtney 36 and 34-year-old Kim from his marriage to his now estranged wife Kris Jenner - shared his worries in a new clip from his upcoming tell-all interview.
In the snippet, Bruce says: "I can't let myself hurt them. They're the only ones I'm concerned with."
Although he appears to have no regrets about his decision, adding: "It made me who I am."
Bruce, 65, is said to be particularly concerned with the impact his decision to live as woman will have on his youngest daughters Kendall and Kylie.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was reported to have been spoiling them with gifts to prove his love to them and ensure his relationship with them doesn't change.
A source said: "He's constantly buying his girls gifts all of a sudden and everyone's worried that he's acting out or trying to buy affection.
"They are all trying to talk him into spending less, but he's doing things his way now."
The only facts we have at the moment is that Bruce has a penchant for colourful manicures, and he likes to keep his hair long and he likes to wear diamond stud earrings. He also had his Adams apple removed. Plus, earlier in the year his mum was questioned about her son's decision to become a woman.
Esther Jenner, 88, praised her Olympian son for his courage, stopping short of some details that have been floated by unnamed sources online and in tabloids.
A publicist for Bruce would not comment about his mother's remarks. Nor would E! Entertainment.
When asked if she had spoken to Bruce about his transition? His mum replied: "It was brief and I said I was proud of him and that I'll always love him. I never thought I could be more proud of Bruce when he reached his goal in 1976, but I'm more proud of him now. It takes a lot of courage to do what he's doing."
"…He said, 'Mom, I'm still the same person.' He said, 'I'm still going to race cars, I'm still going to fly airplanes and I'm going to get my helicopter license.'
His mum's interview is probably the most accurate story we have so far, but here is everything that is speculation, and for effect we're going to cap up the word 'source'.
According to SOURCES, Kris Jenner "cried a lot" after Bruce Jenner told her he is transitioning into a woman.
The 59-year-old reality TV star, who split from the former Olympian in late 2013 after 22 years of marriage, was initially blindsided by his decision, but now supports him "100 percent."
A SOURCE close to the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star said: "Kris had the most difficult time of anyone in the family. She has had a lot to process. She has cried a lot about this, because it's an emotional thing for her."
But the talent manager has gotten used to the idea after spending the last few weeks "looking back at their entire marriage" and thinks "a lot of things are suddenly making sense."
The SOURCE told People magazine: "She's come back around. She has gotten used to the idea. She was most upset because it was the great unknown, but she has really been reading up on things now, so she'll know what to expect. It's really a hard adjustment and a shock, but Kris 100 percent supports [Bruce]. The whole family does."
Bruce, 65, has given all of his children, including daughters Kendall, 19, and Kylie, 17, with Kris, time to adjust to the idea slowly and has been making gradual changes to his appearance over the past year, including undergoing surgery to reduce the size of his Adam's apple.
The SOURCE explained: "No one in the family feels betrayed or deceived by Bruce. It's not like he woke up one day and was like, 'Surprise!' He moved through his own feelings and his own changes at his own pace."
Other news reporters are saying that Bruce Jenner is removing photos of himself as a man from his home, because he wants to erase his past as a man
A SOURCE revealed: "Many of the pictures of him at his home when he was a man have been taken out of the frames and off the walls."
The SOURCE continued: "This is not a joke, the number one name for the show that is being thrown around is Trans-Jenner! It almost is too perfect.
"But another name they are also throwing around is Bruce Jenner - My Journey.
"They don't want to fully scare off potential viewers with a very risky title for a very risky life change."
Despite his decision to live as a woman, the former Olympic athlete - who announced his split from wife Kris Jenner in October 2013 - still "loves" women, and wants to continue to date females.
A SOURCE said: "As a woman, he still wants to continue sleeping with women.
"He loves women and loves having sex with women, always has, always will. What he never liked, was his body and being a man. He's always felt he was born in the wrong body."
As for the men in the Kardashian women's lives, a SOURCE told People that Kourtney's boyfriend Scott Disick "didn't react very well" at first, but "is now on board" while Kim's husband Kanye West seemed to embrace Jenner's transition immediately.

Are you ready for another reality TV obsession? Well, it sounds like the Bruce Jenner TV show is happening - and it could be coming in May or June time.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, who has been the subject of rumours he is planning to undergo gender reassignment surgery, has reportedly been shooting footage with a camera crew over the last few months for the upcoming show that will air on E! later this year.
GLAMOUR has reached out to E! for confirmation.
A source says that the TV series will be "very personal and will include interaction with the 65-year-old former Olympian's children and ex-wife Kris Jenner."
The insider told gossip website TMZ that Bruce has talked openly with his family about his future and Kris "lost it" at one point during an intense conversation.
But Bruce, who has daughters Kendall, 19, and Kylie, 17, and four stepchildren, Kourtney, 35, Kim, 34, Khloé, 30, and Rob Kardashian, 27, with Kris, as well as four other children, Burt, 36, Casey, 34, Brandon, 33, and Brody, 31, from previous relationships is relieved that they have all been "extremely supportive."
Another source told Us Weekly magazine that the docuseries will feature "the Jenner family talking about Bruce 'coming out.' The world will see his full transformation."
Kim recently predicted Bruce, who split from her mother Kris in 2013 after 22-years of marriage, would speak out about his "journey" when the "time is right".
She said: "I think Bruce is very happy, the happiest I've ever seen him...He's our dad so we support him no matter what, and I think when the time is right, he'll talk about whatever he wants to talk about. I guess I'll kind of let everyone be curious and I feel like that's his journey to talk about.
"I think everyone goes through things in life, and I think that story and what Bruce is going through, I think he'll share whenever the time is right. I feel like that's his journey to talk about."
The long-haired athlete - who underwent surgery to reduce the size of his Adam's apple last year - sparked rumours this week that he has increased the size of his lips via injections and was also recently spotted wearing nail polish.
