Caitlyn Jenner's new tell-all Kardashian documentary
Speaking exclusively on ITV1’s This Morning, Hollywood sensation Caitlyn Jenner reveals why she decided to be a part of a brand new three-part tell-all series.
Explaining to hosts Holly Willoughby and Josie Gibson, she simply said, “I wanted to protect my family. I'm a parent, I love my children… and you know the Kardashian side and a little bit of the Jenner side, but I think a lot of times in the media you get totally misrepresented, so I wanted to do it just to say first of all how much I love my kids, and second of all how proud I am of them and what they’ve been able to accomplish. It is an amazing story.”
She added, “Kim wanted to be a celebrity and wanted to get into that world, and I told her that’s great, but you know what? Being in that world is a business and you have to treat it as a business - and there is nobody that has treated it more like a business than Kimberly. She’s worth in the $4 billion range now…she took that fame and created tremendous businesses… She’s very smart. She’s working on a law degree and is going to be a lawyer pretty soon, and sometimes that gets lost.”
Looking back on when she first met her now ex-wife Kris Jenner, Caitlyn confessed, “I had been single for six years, and really kind of struggling with myself and who I was and how I fit into the world.
“I was just turning 40 and met Kris on a blind date, we hit it off from day one. Was it love at first sight? Pretty close to that, yes. I was totally impressed with her and how she lived her life - she had four kids, I had four kids… and we got married five and a half months later! It was very quick.”
On not having their fortune to begin with, she said, “We had no money. We started with nothing, Kris fired the manager and said I’m going to take over… she hadn’t really done anything like that before, but she kind of knew the business game, and just started building it.”
When quizzed on how she deals with the negative side of the media and reports that Kris isn’t happy with her making the new documentary series. She said, “It’s part of the game. The media will make up a lot of the controversy and try to make up a story.
“I saw this trans person that I don’t even know, I’ve never met, that was putting me down… and that really bothered me, but that’s part of the game. Is it worth it? Yes. I’ve lived a very very good life.”
And when asked what her relationship is like with Kris and the family now, Caitlyn admitted, “Well Kris, I really never talk to anymore. Yeah, it’s sad. If there’s any communication, my manager kind of talks to her and when you have as many kids as I have, you’re closer to some than you are to others… I certainly see them and we do this and that. I’m much closer to the Jenner side, but Kris, I don’t really have any more contact with her. It's kind of sad because we went through a lot.”
