Caitlyn Jenner Is Explaining How Her Gender Identity Affected Her Marriage With Kris
Before Kris Jenner had a chance to read ex Caitlyn’s book, the former couple of 22 years was working on putting the past behind them. This season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians has seen the family go through all new drama, including Kris’s reaction to what Caitlyn wrote about her in her memoir. But before Kris got to read the book, she sat down with Caitlyn and it looked like the former couple were working on reconciling post divorce and transition.
In a clip from KUWTK, the Jenners are sitting at Kris’s breakfast bar having a drink and Kris brings up a question she always had for her ex. “I always wondered why you peed sitting down.” She asks. Caitlyn’s response is a good explanation of what it means to struggle with your gender identity.
“When you struggle with your gender identity,” Caitlyn explains, “there are little things you can do to make yourself feel better.” For Caitlyn, this included peeing sitting down, which made her feel more at peace with her body. “It’s kind of perfect,” Kris replies, “because I never had to yell at you for putting the seat down.” While we don’t know if Kris has or will confront Caitlyn about the book, it’s definitely fascinating to get a glimpse of how the family has worked together through the transition.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
