Wendy Williams Insinuates Caitlyn Jenner Isn't a Woman Because 'She Still Has a Member'
The talk show host discussed Jenner during The Wendy Williams Show
Williams brought up the former Olympian during the Hot Topics segment of her show on Tuesday, while discussing the recent Cosmopolitan magazine cover showing Kim Kardashian West, Kourtney Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner and Kris Jenner.
“It features all the Kardashian women,” Williams, 51, said before pausing.
“No, not Caitlyn,” she continued. “Caitlyn still has a member, so that is not a –” Williams then paused again, pursed her lips and turned to two of her producers offstage.
One producer laughed while the other shook his head.
“I mean, until you don’t – aren’t you caught in limbo?” Williams said.
The audience screamed, “Yes!”
“That’s all,” Williams said before going on to compliment Khloé’s appearance on the cover.
“So anyway, the women of the family are on the cover. Khloé, you look terrific,” she said. “Word on the street is that before all the airbrushing, you’re the one who looked the best out of all of them.”
Williams’ comments come almost two weeks after a judge approved Jenner’s request to be legally declared a woman on Sept. 25.
In her name and gender petition, Jenner, 65, formally requested to be called “Caitlyn Marie Jenner” instead of “William Bruce Jenner.”

During the Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce special that aired in May, Jenner (at the time known as Bruce) said she had not yet made an appointment for sex reassignment surgery. (The episode was filmed in February).
“Oh, the little thing down there?” Jenner said, smiling. “That’s kind of the last thing you can do. You can do an awful lot before that.”
According to GLAAD guidelines, sex reassignment surgery is “only a small part of transition.”
“Altering one’s birth sex is not a one-step procedure; it is a complex process that occurs over a long period of time,” the group states.
