Capitalizing on fame to pick the party to sue; Caitlyn Jenner gets the odds this week – Paula Halifax

A second lawsuit was filed against Caitlyn Jenner for an accident she was involved in back in February before she transitioned and was Bruce Jenner.

Talent Manager, Jessica Marie Steindorff, claims Caitlyn, when she was Bruce, operated her vehicle “negligently, carelessly, recklessly, and wontonly” and caused the collision.

This is where I have to pause from sharing the story to sharing my thoughts.  According to all counts of the story, Steindorff was in a 2010 Toyota Prius, stopped in traffic (Car #1) when she was rear ended by a white Lexus (Car #2).  So far, I would say the white Lexus CAUSED the collision.

The Lexus was rear ended by Jenner’s Black Caddilac Escalade SUV (Car 3) TOWING a trailer with an all-terrain vehicle on it. This impact propelled the Lexus into traffic where it collided with a black Hummer H2(Car 4). Sadly, the driver of the white Lexus, Kim Howe (69 Calabasas, California) died on the scene.

Five children and two other adults were hospitalized for injuries from the accident as well.

It was a horrible accident. I feel bad for all parties involved.  Here’s what I don’t understand…why go after Jenner? Howe’s family has also filed a civil lawsuit against her seeking unspecified damages but she was the one who REAR ENDED Steindorff, not Jenner.

The accident took place on California’s Pacific Coast Highway, which is always heavily filled with traffic.  Jenner was pulling a trailer, so it would have been MORE difficult to stop suddenly.  It also would have more weight. An object in motion….. Even if she had been maintaining a safe distance, given the fact the Lexus rear ended the Prius, it would be safe to assume the Lexus didn’t give fair warning of stopping (brake lights) in order for Jenner to sufficiently be alerted to slow down / stop.

So it comes down to this…in a chain reaction of four cars, WHO gets sued? Is it the guilty party or is the one who is the most famous? Has the deepest pockets?

Not to mention, Steindorff wasn’t even supposed to be driving! Her license had been suspended for an unpaid ticket. Had she been following the law, she wouldn’t have been on the road, therefore NONE of this would have happened. Why aren’t all parties suing her?

According to another report, Howe was driving on an expired license that expired back in 2007! Same theory applies as the suspended license.

All reports show Jenner passed a sobriety test, turned over her cell phone records to prove she wasn’t texting, and was not evading the paparazzi, even though they were closely following her.

As we live in a litigious society, where lawyers meet with lawyers to bargain down a claim to avoid more unwanted publicity and court time, I hope Jenner, if truly innocent, stands her ground and fights.  When accidents and tragedies occur because of others failing to follow the law, the one with the deepest pockets should not have to foot the bill.

E! Will have 8 Part Documentary on Caitlyn Jenner – Paula Halifax

E! News and the Today Show just revealed there will be an 8 part documentary on Caitlyn Jenner.  It will feature her in her new life as a woman.  Caitlyn, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, talks about having her makeup done for the first time professionally and the challenges women face daily.

While Caitlyn (as Bruce) has been seen over the years on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, as husband to Kris and father to the siblings, it is important to understand this is not about KUWTK, but about a man who felt like he was living a lie his whole life being a man and now she is finally able to be who she truly believes she is.

She has been given the opportunity to make transgender a household name. In one interview, she said “Maybe this is my greatest calling in life.”

Transgender may be something you don’t feel comfortable with and that’s ok.  Empathy and compassion for all are important.

Some Christians would say it is against God and I would challenge them with this thought.  If, as a Christian, you believe we all have to live in the bodies we are born with, think about this.  Our bodies are made up of genetic DNA. It is through this we have the chromosomes which make us male and female.  What happens when that genetic make-up tips a little more one way than the other.  For example, some women are born and absolutely love everything “girly” and pink and fluffy….no one thinks, oh, she is too much of a girl.  If another girl is born and turns out to be rough and tumble, likes to get dirty, she is labeled “Tom-Boy” but still thought of as a girl.  It has been proven these styles have nothing to do with the household.  A girl is going to be the girl she wants to be.  Now, take those same girls and have there genetic makeup tip more in one way or another, causing them to find other girls attractive, this could lead to them being lesbian.  If their genetic makeup leads them to feeling like they are just in the wrong body altogether, it is almost accepted in society for a girl to look or act “boyish” but as a society, we refuse to want to accept it when it is a man wanting to look or be feminine.

Caitlyn Jenner is showing the world it is OK to be WHO you are. When she had a male body, she was strong, she was fearless, she was an adrenaline junky….now she can still be that, and be a beautiful woman too.  She can be strong AND womanly.

Her platform is just beginning.  It will open the door for so many discussions.

If you accept it, GREAT, if you are bothered by it, ask yourself why?

Caitlyn is the new Bruce; Bruce Jenner reveals his new look – Paula Halifax

Bruce Jenner, 65, made a name for himself long before Keeping Up With The Kardashians became a household word.  As Bruce, he won a gold medal in the decathlon in Montreal, Canada during the 1976 Summer Olympic games.  He then went on to do television movies as well at being a motivational speaker.  Married to Kris Jenner for almost 24 years, he then became known all over again as the Kardashian family wove their way into the homes of so many viewers each week on their show.

Bruce is now using his name, his fame, and his ability to motivate in a whole new way.  He is now a she.  She, in true Jenner fashion, is coming out to the world as Cailtlyn Jenner in a big way.   If you want photos taken of you with a new look, who do you call? World famous photographer, Annie Leibovitz.  What platform should the pictures be visible?  Vanity Fair of course!  Vanity Fair debuted their July cover of Jenner and it is stunning.  Jenner is wearing a beautiful white corseted body suit and long, flowing hair.

Jenner, who has children with Kris as well as other children from a previous relationship, clearly has the support of her children, her ex wife, and millions of fans.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Jenner states, “”If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, ‘You just blew your entire life.”

With Jenner being so open and honest about her feelings leading up to this decision, she is putting a new face to the support of all of those believing they are living in the wrong body.  By following the family and hearing their raw words, you gain an insight to not only the feelings of the one transitioning but to the loved ones who are on the journey with them.

I wish Caitlyn and the entire Jenner / Kardashian family all the best as they navigate this new life.
