Brody Jenner stopped by the “Today” show to discuss his new reality show “Sex with Brody,” but the conversation quickly turned towards the recent transition of his father Caitlyn Jenner and their newfound rapport.
“Well, growing up, I didn’t really have the greatest relationship with Bruce,” Brody explained to co-host Hoda Kotb. “I didn’t see him that often. And Caitlyn is just a much freer person. It’s incredible to see the difference between Caitlyn and Bruce.”
The youngest Jenner son went on to explain that he’s getting to know a completely new person: “Bruce and I kind of didn’t really get along. And Caitlyn? It’s literally like trying to get to know somebody — like your dad — over again. But in a better way.”
Kotb also asked what conversations Brody can now have with his dad.
“Just to watch Caitlyn be so open, honestly, and just talk about certain things that Caitlyn/Bruce would never speak about. You know, Bruce had so many secrets, and so many things that were building up.”
Brody explained that he now understands why Bruce wasn’t around that much, but that his mom was the one who actually informed him about the “Caitlyn situation” three years ago.
When Kotb asked Jenner whether he will appear on his dad’s new reality show “I am Cait” (premiering July 26 on E!) he said, “I don’t know, to be honest.”
Jenner also spoke about his new show, stating he is a “self-proclaimed expert and sex enthusiast.” His show, “Sex With Brody,” will premiere on July 10 on E!. His inspirations? Howard Stern and “Loveline.”
