'Ellen': Kylie Jenner Explains the Real Reason Why She Likes Caitlyn More Than Bruce Jenner



    Kylie Jenner is speaking candidly about her current relationship with Caitlyn Jenner.

    Close to six months after Caitlyn's Vanity Fair cover was released, the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star admits her relationship with the Olympic athlete is closer than ever before.

    "I like her better than Bruce," the 18-year-old shared on Monday's all-new "Ellen DeGeneres Show." "We talk about makeup and clothes. We bond a lot more, but not only that. I feel like there's not a huge secret in the family. I feel like there was always this big secret."

    She continued, "And I've honestly known about it for a really long time and we actually caught him then dressing up as a girl. When my sister and I were like 6 and 7 maybe. So we've known for a while that there was something, but it was never talked about."

    After hearing the honest admission, host DeGeneres followed up by asking if Caitlyn ever wanted to talk about makeup back when she was Bruce. Again, Jenner got a sense that "there was something" that wasn't being addressed.

    "Honestly, like I'd be with my girlfriends sometimes and he would come in and be like what are you guys talking about and kind of joke around and I knew there was something, but now I feel like we hang out a lot more there's no secrets," Jenner says. "She's really living her authentic true self. And I feel like that's awesome and also I want to be someone from my generation to like be an example because I think that's so awesome and I think that other girls and boys my age will maybe see that I'm so accepting and be accepting of other people too."

    Kendall Jenner's younger sister has been vocal about anti-bullying in recent months. In addition to several Instagram posts, the reality star has started a campaign called I Am More Than.

    "I've been bullied my whole life whether it was about my peers or comments on Instagram or Twitter, whatever. And I never talked about my story really. I feel like I've kind of accepted it because I realized that just comes with the territory," she shared. "So I kind of was online and just finding other girls and boys my age who have been bullied and have kind of overcome it, and just done something amazing with it, who inspire me so I kind of wanted them to just use my platform and post their stories on Instagram to hopefully inspire my followers too because they inspire me so much."
