Caitlyn Jenner opened up about her views on the possibility of going to a male prison. Is she excited to enter a male prison?
Obviously not. Jenner told Today’s Matt Lauer, “That is the worst case scenario. I don’t know. We’ll see. The men’s county jail. It is an enormous problem that they would put trans-women in a men’s county jail.”
In February, Jenner had been involved in a fatal car crash on California’s Pacific Coast Highway that left a 69-year-old woman dead.
The Los Angeles County prosecutors are still reviewing investigators’ report before deciding if the former Olympian could face a misdemeanor manslaughter charge. If convicted, Jenner who could face a year in jail.
Los Angeles Times noted that legal experts believe it is unlikely that Jenner will face jail time.
Jenner said her team is making sure that if she does end up getting jail time, it won’t be in a men’s correctional facility, People magazine noted.
Jenner added that she remembers “very little” about the crash. “A tragedy like this, you’ll never get over it. You just learn to live with it the best you possibly can,” she added.
Jenner also admitted to Lauer that she doesn’t miss her former life as Bruce.
“I think about my life and where I’m at in my life right now and what a tremendous experience this. Hardly nobody gets to live two genders in their lives. Everybody wonders, ‘Oh, what’s it like to be coming from the other side? … And here I have the opportunity to do that. And to be honest with you, everything’s so new and fun. From that standpoint, it’s been great.”
She also speaks up about the Halloween costumes that have been made out of her Vanity Fair cover.
“I’m in on the joke. Yeah, no, I don’t think it’s offensive at all … You’ve got to enjoy life. Life’s too short. I can’t get too upset about that type of stuff,” she said.
The second part of the interview airs Thursday.
