Wheaties

Mum on Caitlyn

We Stand By Bruce

6/1/2015 12:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0601-caitlyn-jenner-wheaties-box-04

General Mills -- the makers of Wheaties -- had an interesting reaction to the passing of Bruce Jenner and the birth of Caitlyn.

As you know, Bruce's image was an iconic box cover for the cereal in 1977 ... one year after he won gold at the Olympics.

We contacted General Mills Monday and asked about their reaction to the new photos, and they told us, "Bruce Jenner continues to be a respected member of Team Wheaties."

We followed up by asking if they acknowledge the presence of Caitlyn and the response was short and to the point: "We stand by our statement."

We were told General Mills has had its statement locked and loaded for a while.

It's interesting ... the company rolled out the box cover in 2012 for a retro campaign celebrating the achievements of Olympic gold medalists, which also included the images of Muhammad Ali and Mary Lou Retton. We don't know if they will use Bruce's image in the future.

First Photo as a Woman

It's the biggest reveal of 2015 for sure ... Bruce Jenner as a woman, and the pic is dramatic. 

The name's now Caitlyn. She posed for the cover of Vanity Fair's July issue and it was shot by famed celeb photographer Annie Leibovitz.

It's interesting the name is spelled with a C and not a K ... possibly a break from the Kardashian Klan.

In the Diane Sawyer interview Bruce made it clear he was saying farewell to his male persona. This pic is a full reveal of the transformation. 

Caitlyn just opened a Twitter account, saying, "I'm so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. Can't wait for you to get to know her/me."

Check out the video, where Caitlyn models several outfits and seductively poses.

Bruce Jenner's Olympic Teammate

"It's Courageous

... But I Don't Get It"

EXCLUSIVE

0601_Caitlyn_jenner_fred_dixon_vanity-fair-gettyCaitlyn Jenner's former decathlon teammate -- who competed for Team USA with Bruce in the '76 Olympics -- says he's struggling to "compute" the whole Jenner situation ... but still considers her a friend. 

TMZ Spoke with Fred Dixon ... who reunited with "Bruce" at his 64th birthday party last year (a reunion featured on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians").

Dixon was extremely honest when we asked if he'd seen the new cover of Vanity Fair .... saying, "Bruce was one of the best athletes who ever existed. Now, to see that photo ... somehow it doesn't compute."

"I look at it and I don't understand it. I'm not in any way judging him ... but it's very different."

For the record, Jenner told Diane Sawyer he expected some of his old friends to feel this way ... and understands -- "Some people will get it, some people won’t get it, it’s OK."

As for Fred, he says the bottom line is simple -- "The soul that was and is Bruce Jenner is still my friend. I don't understand what's going on now ... but he's still my friend."

Trashy Lingerie

Big Winner In VF Cover

EXCLUSIVE

0601-bruce-jenner-vanity-fair-08If you’re wondering where Caitlyn Jenner picked up that sexy satin corset for her big cover reveal, look no further than West Hollywood’s Trashy Lingerie.

We found out Jenner’s stylist went to the famous lingerie shop three weeks ago looking for a specific type of corset. We’re told the stylist bought 3 corsets for the VF cover shoot – 2 satin ones that lace up the back, and 1 lacy number that was special ordered.

The shop’s plain, satin nude Edy Corset won top honor, along with matching high-waisted panties … in a size large. The cup size? A healthy 36B.

The stylist dropped $1,030 total for all three looks.

A small price for a big change, if you think about it.

I Didn't Spell it with a 'K'

For Good Reason

6/1/2015 10:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0601-bruce-jenner-vanity-fair-02

Caitlyn Jenner did not spell her first name with a "K" because she wants a clean break from the Kardashian moniker ... TMZ has learned.  

Sources closely associated with Bruce tell us Caitlyn wants to make it clear to her family and the world ... she is her own person. That sounds obvious, but we're told it was an extremely meaningful choice for her ... she has never been her own person before, and becoming part of the Kardashian brood would undermine her goal.

Our sources say it's not that there's bad blood between Caitlyn and the Kardashians ... it's all about self-identity.

I Needed to Shock People

With Vanity Fair Cover

EXCLUSIVE

0601-bruce-jenner-vanity-fair-05Caitlyn Jenner did not want the world to see a demure version of herself ... she chose a sexy photo because once the shock wears off, people will be more accepting. 

Sources closely associated with Caitlyn tell TMZ, she gave a lot of thought to her first public image. She felt if she posed in something modest, like a dress, people would not be satisfied and the mystery would prevent her from leading any kind of a normal life. 

We're told Caitlyn chose an extremely sexy, revealing outfit because now that the public's curiosity is satisfied, it will not be a shock when she goes out in normal streetwear.

And our sources say Caitlyn plans to publicly circulate now that her true self is revealed. She was hiding for a long time until this moment, but now the decks are cleared.

In Sunday night's "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," psychic John Edward told Kim he saw something with the number three, but wasn't sure what it meant. We're told Kim's a believer and thinks it means getting pregnant the third month of the year.

As for the mother-to-be, Kim was seen out Sunday afternoon in New York City.

As for the cheap seats ... they ain't that cheap -- $500.

Nicole Scherzinger To Ex

You Can Have Kendall Jenner

I Have This Sexy Body

EXCLUSIVE

Nicole Scherzinger made it clear without saying a word ... her ex-BF may be with Kendall Jenner but he's missing out on a lot. 

Our photog practically tripped over his tongue when he spotted the 36-year-old leaving The Sayers Club in Hollywood. He mentions Nicole's former BF, Formula 1 champ Lewis Hamilton, but mum's the word.

As we reported, all signs point to Lewis hooking up with 19-year-old Kendall, but at nearly twice Kendall's age ... Nicole's gotta still make Lewis think about his choices.

Victim's Stepkids Don't Deserve Squat

In Wrongful Death Suit

5/27/2015 9:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527-bruce-jenner-tmz-01

Bruce Jenner says the adult stepchildren of the woman who died in his Malibu car crash don't deserve a SINGLE PENNY from him ... because they didn't lose anything when she died.

Jenner just responded to the stepkids -- 57-year-old William and 60-year-old Dana -- in new legal docs ... saying their thin family connection does NOT give them the right to sue for wrongful death.

Long story short ... Jenner says William and Dana are grown ass adults that never depended on their stepmom Kim Howe to pay for essential things in their lives ... such as food, shelter, clothing or medical treatment. 

Jenner says the accident was a "terrible tragedy" -- but says it's not an excuse for William and Dana to cash in on Kim's death.

TMZ broke the story ... Kim had no relationship with her stepkids, and that her friends say she hadn't spoken with them in years.

Jenner is asking the court to throw out the case. Stay tuned.
