It was a huge part of the bizarre public spectacle that is the Keeping up with the Kardashian's.

And she couldn't be happier.
via: GettyIn her debut Vanity Fair interview as Caitlyn, she explained how liberating it felt to finally be open as a woman: "I have nothing left to hide. I am kind of a free person, a free soul. Up to this point, I would wear, you know, Bruce would wear sweatshirts with hoods on them so paparazzi can’t get pictures and all that kind of crap."
Caitlyn insists that she is a nicer person than ever before.
Yet, despite Caitlyn being happier and more popular than ever...Kendall and Kylie. "My dad says it herself sometimes, it's kind of like mourning the loss of someone, because it is," Kendall said in a candid interview about Caitlyn's transition. "My dad is my dad, but he’s not there physically anymore. But she lets me call her dad - that's the last little piece of dad I've got."
Though Kendall insists that she'd known about Caitlyn's gender identity for years.
It's been a few years since the transition now...

But the one thing about Caitlyn's new life that has gotten everyone talking is her strange relationship with twenty-four-year-old Sophia Hutchins.

She also claimed that Caitlyn "barged into her room" while she had someone with her and that this was happening more often.
via: Juicy Scoop"[She] kind of saw a lot of things happening, and so it's kind of like living with your parents. I'm like, 'Oh, this might be a turning point where I might need to move out.'" So it seems that they're definitely not dating, then...
