The former Olympian discussed the tragedy during a recent interview with the Today show’s Matt Lauer, which aired on Wednesday, September 9. ‘That is the worst case scenario’. “I know the community does and they’ve gotten a lot of criticism for doing it. I think it’s great!”, she said, laughing.
More seriously, though, she did acknowledge that would be the “worst case” outcome, and expressed genuine fear about being a trans woman put in a men’s county jail.
Last month, it was reported that the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department could charge Jenner with manslaughter. The said tragic auto collision happened in California’s Pacific Coast Highway resulting in the death of a woman. “That’s about it”, she said before mentioning there are still details she can’t talk about due to litigation.
On top of this, Jenner is being sued by Howe’s family, and that of another driver injured in the accident, who both claim that she was driving negligently.
In a new interview, Caitlyn Jenner says she appreciates the life she has now, following her transition from male to female. I almost got stopped but I couldn’t quite get it stopped. Despite the outrage that the costume sparked among the transgender community, Caitlyn has insisted that she is “in on the joke“.

“You’ve got to enjoy life“, Jenner said.
Do you think the costume is offensive?
If prosecutors decide to proceed with charges against Jenner, she could face up to a year behind bars – and Jenner has already instructed her lawyers to ensure she is not placed in a men’s facility.
The interview also touched on lighter topics, such as Halloween costumes based on Caitlyn’s Vanity Fair cover.
“There’s nothing better in life than to wake up in the morning, look in the mirror and be comfortable with yourself and who you are”, Jenner told Lauer.
“You’ve got these little puppies right here and here”, she adds while getting herself ready to putt.
