Caitlyn Jenner fears going to male jail

Caitlyn JennerCaitlyn Jenner has finally spoken up to the media about the car accident she was involved in last February, in which Kim Howe, a 69-year-old widow, was killed. Jenner, who was still known as “Bruce Jenner” at the time, was towing her off-road buggy behind her Cadillac Escalade when the crash occurred.

Howe was driving her white Lexus along the Pacific Coast Highway when a blue Prius stopped short approximately 150 yards ahead. Howe ran into the Prius and then Jenner’s Escalade rammed into the Lexus. Howe died shortly after the crash.

Reality star Jenner says she can’t say much about the crash because of ongoing litigation, but told Today host Matt Lauer: “A tragedy like this, you’ll never get over it. You just learn to live with it the best you possibly can.”

Caitlyn discussed the possibility of having to go to prison and her fear about winding up in a cell with men. “That is the worst case scenario,” she admitted. “I don’t know. We’ll see. The Men’s County Jail. It is an enormous problem that they would put trans-women in Men’s County Jail.”

However, Jenner, who has her own show now called I Am Cait, added she’s still happy that she’s undergoing the transition. “There’s nothing more, nothing better in life to wake up in the morning, look at yourself in the mirror and feel comfortable with yourself and who you are.”

    Who cares about any of this Kardashian clan…did they find the cure for cancer and I missed it?

    If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime….

    If he/she is sentenced to jail, where SHOULD that be ? This is where the judge has to do some thinking.

    If he/she is sentenced to jail, where SHOULD that be ? That is where the judge must give some great thought. But do “stars” go to jail ?

    brian: stars go to jail all the time: Robert Downey, Jr., Wesley Snipes and Paris Hilton just off the top of my head

    Why would a male bodied person be housed with vulnerable woman? I don’t know why anyone would think that was appropriate.

    Poetic Justice!

  8. dierdre • September 10, 2015 @ 12:30 PM

    Well thats for the judge to decide, hope he’s in a good mood on sentencing day. Nobody’s untouchable,but she will probably get her own cell and not be in the population part of the jail.

    Who cares? IT can go to hell far as I am concerned. If he/she caused this accident, then he/she can take the punishment. Outside of that, I don’t give a rat’s ass about him/her or any of the K family. Despicable people on any level.

    He was dressing as a man when it happened, so send him with the men! And if it happened when he was dressed as a woman, he is still a man… with a wig. So!

  11. j • September 10, 2015 @ 1:28 PM

    he is now a she… people make me sick. yeah she should pay for this but what if this was your parent or child….you are a bunch of bigots and should be ashamed of yourselves for calling her an IT!!!!!!!!!!!

    Poor wanker.

    I don’t care for the Kardashian family, either. To think they succeeded In
    Life is foolish. The only way they suceeded was to feed off the public’s
    Need for something to focus on. They are entirely to blame, as the
    Producers of the show do the same, to make money.
    As for Caitlynn, as far as the accident is concerned, how can she be totally
    Guilty, if the first car stopped, and Ms. Howe was not in control of her vehicle
    And made an abrupt stop by running into the car ahead of her, causing
    Caitlyn to subsequently run into Ms. Howe’s car. The impact was severe enough to kill her but she was on a highway!
    Caitlynn, in my opinion, should only be charged with careless driving by
    Not leaving enough space between cars to safely stop, I.e. Not in control of
    Her vehicle. How can Caitlynn be charged for Killy the lady? If the first car had not stopped, Ms. Howe would not have stopped by running into it, causing
    Caitlynn to make an abrupt stop. It was what we call an “accident”!
    I am no fan if Cait’s but justice is justice.
    As far as her sexuality, she should not be judged by that, and if found guilty, a
    Simple solution would be a single cell. That’s fair.
    Remember, she has eased the pain of many transsexuals, in various states
    Of trans. She has shown them that it is OK to be what you are, regardless
    Of what that may be, and no one has the right to judge or bully another
    Person. God Bless her for her courage!
    As far as the rest of the K. Clan, yuck!

    was Jenner drinking? Curious if the dress after the accident had anything to do with wanting private cell.

  15. Scott • September 10, 2015 @ 1:59 PM

    This is the ONLY instance where transgender or gender fluidity would work in someones favor. I know i am certianly switching to a tranny state of mind if ever faced with jail. Ship me off with the lonely lady inmates please! 🙂

  16. Boris • September 10, 2015 @ 2:56 PM

    Who DOESN’T fear going to jail? This article is pointless drivel.

  17. Trevor • September 10, 2015 @ 4:05 PM

    Put this thing in a male jail, so maybe we can stop this sickness of trans-whatever BS.

  18. Kitty • September 10, 2015 @ 4:43 PM

    If there is jail time involved I think the best solution would be house arrest for a transgender person.

  19. A-nony-mouse • September 10, 2015 @ 5:01 PM

    I’m with you J. These people who are referring to Caitlyn as he or IT disgust me. You probably all claim to be tolerant too. Doesn’t matter the genitalia and what’s between the legs. It matters what’s in one’s heart and between one’s ears. Caitlyn is as much a woman as I am. I was born female and identify female. What many don’t seem to understand is the horrific amount of abuse and injury that transgendered people suffer day in and day out. And that it’s much, much worse in prison.

    Being transgendered is a real thing. And you don’t just “get to decide” that you are. You actually have to go through years of counselling before you’re approved to got through transition. Get educated.

  20. WDG • September 10, 2015 @ 5:13 PM

    Bend over, Caitlyn — they’ll drive you home !!!

  21. Lenny • September 10, 2015 @ 5:33 PM

    WDG – Good One!

  22. Robin • September 10, 2015 @ 6:09 PM

    Poor THING! My sympathies to the family of the widow he killed. Jenner is a remorseless, self-centered cry baby and I have no sympathy. Drunk drivers should be charged with murder if they kill someone and attempted murder if they manage not to kill anyone. Bruce Caitlyn Jenner is a bum, whatever sex it wants to be.

  23. M thimson • September 10, 2015 @ 7:12 PM

    I for one am sick of hearing about Bruce Jenner and his clan. Of nobodies.
    These are people who somehow have become celebrities because people who pay attention to them have no lives . Let him/her go to jail. The reality is there will be no jail time as it was an accident and not a front. Bug if sure ages good press andd gives these idiots even more exposure to the people with no lives

  24. Lulu • September 12, 2015 @ 6:43 PM

    Look at what happenened on orange is the new black that transgender went to a female prison, ended up not being able to take hormones, started turning back into a male! Then, on another episode got into a fight with a female inmates and had the strength of a male, then on another episode got beaten and assaulted for being transgender had his wig ripped off his head and everything. No prison is safe for Cait.

  25. Terry • September 19, 2015 @ 12:37 AM

    This was not an accident. It was a crash caused by 3 drivers who were not driving with due care. I think although she is guilty of driving without due care and attention the judge will have to consider that. Has it been determined the Caitlen is responsible for the death of the woman or was she killed when she hit the other car. It would be idiocy to put a transgender woman in jail with men.
