Caitlyn Jenner has revealed she would consider getting get vocal surgery to achieve a more “feminine voice”.
The reality star previously admitted she didn’t feel her voice matched her appearance, and in the latest episode of I Am Cait she confides in one of her biggest supporters Kim Kardashian.
The former Olympian tells Kim she’s considering vocal surgery, but the mum-of-one isn’t keen on the idea.
“What if they made a mistake and you came out with no voice?” a shocked Kim says.
Caitlyn also asks her transgender friends what they’ve done to change their voices.
“I haven’t done one thing,” Chandi Moore replies. “If you’re going to accept me, you’re going to accept me.”
While Jen Richards admits she saw a vocal therapist because she “hated being outed by my voice”.
Caitlyn also reveals to Kim that she used to call room service to practice her voice and hoped she would be called m’am rather than sir.
But when Kim – who is joined by her good friend Malika – asks her to give it a go and pretend to order room service, Caitlyn struggles.
“You sound no different!”
“Sir! Sir! What would you like, sir?” Kim jokes.
“See! That’s the problem,” Caitlyn replies.
“Women cannot relate to the whole voice thing,” the 65-year-old later says to camera.
“They don’t see it as being that important when it is that important, not only for you to speak and order and do all that kind of stuff, but very important for your soul that you’re feeling good about that.”
After watching her ESPYs speech back Caitlyn wrote on her blog that she didn’t feel her voice matched her “feminine appearance”.
“While I felt like I looked great and that the gown looked fabulous, I still have a voice issue. It’s not quite right compared to my feminine appearance,” she said.
She adds: “That bothers me a little bit. However, I hope that people don’t listen to the pitch of my voice, but listen to what I have to say. That’s important to me.”
