‘Crazy’: Ellen and Howard Stern Can’t Believe Caitlyn Jenner’s Marriage Comments


In an interview for The Ellen DeGeneres Show taped last week, Caitlyn Jenner admitted that long before her gender transition she had trouble with the idea of same-sex marriage. Even now, she calls herself a “traditionalist” who believes in marriage as an institution that exists between a man and a woman.

These statements clearly took host Ellen DeGeneres aback in the moment and she elaborated on her surprise during an appearance on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show Tuesday. “She still has a judgement about gay marriage,” DeGeneres said of Jenner. “And I said, ‘You’re wanting people to understand and accept you — this is like, really confusing to people — and you still have a judgement about gay people and marriage.”

“It’s crazy,” Stern said. “Here’s a person on TV crying, ‘I want to be myself, I want to be genuine, I don’t want people to ridicule me’ and then says in the same breath, ‘Gee, gay marriage, I don’t get it.’ It’s remarkable!”

Asked by Stern if Jenner danced with her, as many of the talk show’s guests do, DeGeneres said no. “Maybe she didn’t want to dance with me because I’m a lesbian,” she suggested. On Jenner’s self-described conservative politics, DeGeneres added, “I think a lot of Republicans are wishing she wasn’t Republican.”
