Cindy Ord/NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment(LOS ANGELES) -- Since Caitlyn Jenner debuted her new look on the cover of Vanity Fair in June, her family has been slowly getting used to her new look. Khloe Kardashian even admitted Thursday that she still calls her step-father, Bruce, Jenner's name at birth.
"We don't like to say that Bruce is gone, per se. We, my sisters and I, we will call Caitlyn 'Bruce,' and we've been told that's completely fine," she said on The Project, an Australian TV show. "She has told us we are allowed to call her any name we want to. Because on the phone, when she calls me, it's the same voice as Bruce. And if I'm not physically with her, it's hard to remember in the moment that I'm talking to Caitlyn, if that makes sense."
Kardashian added that the transition has been hard on the family. "There was a hard time for the entire family, that we were all transitioning with her, but in front of an audience," she explained. "That's not really the normal way to go about it."
Continuing, Kardashian said, "There is a lot of raw emotions, that it's hard to do in front of a camera. For us, we were trying to be really open and raw with it, I think. We all got through it and that's completely over, it's all behind us now. So, we are just happy for her. We just want her to be happy. But there was definitely a moment that was really tough for all of us."
Kardashian clarified that just because she still calls Jenner, Bruce, doesn't mean she's not supportive of Jenner's transition. "It's a beautiful thing that she's transitioned," she said, "and that she is strong enough to have her own voice and wanting to make such monumental, beautiful moves and be that crusader."
Meanwhile, E! released a new clip from I Am Cait Friday, showing the former Olympian trying to perfect a more feminine voice. In the clip, Jenner's step-daughter, Kim Kardashian, attempts to help her by having Jenner pretend to order room service at a hotel. When Jenner tries her feminine sound, Kardashian replies, "You sound no different!"
"Sir! What would you like, sir?" Kardashian quipped.
A new episode of I Am Cait airs Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on E!
