Cayne opened up her friendship with Jenner on Access Hollywood
Candis Cayne has been supportive to Caitlyn Jenner as the former Olympian adjusts to her new life, but their close relationship, as seen on I Am Cait, has sparked speculation that the pair are more than friends.
Cayne was asked about their status when she appeared on Access Hollywood on Wednesday.
“Caitlyn and I are really good friends. I really love her a lot, and it’s been amazing being by her side through this whole process,” the actress said.
Cayne, who invited Jenner for a sleepover at her L.A. home on Sunday’s episode of I Am Cait, also said that Jenner’s not really her type – she’s into men and Jon Stewart is her crush – but added that she and Jenner will always remain “just really, really, really good friends.”
She also defended her new pal against criticism that Jenner’s transition into a woman has been more like a fairytale.
“She’s lived her whole life being transgender but never being able to do anything about it,” Cayne said. “That’s just as hard as somebody like me, who at 24 decided that’s what I wanted to do with my life in order to be okay with things. So I went through other struggles, but she did also.”
I Am Cait airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on E!
