Caitlyn Jenner says she is no longer keeping up with the Kardashians. The 68-year-old transgender reality star said that her relationship with the Kardashian girls has been virtually nonexistant since the release of her memoir Secrets of My Life.
"It's been a little bit tough over the past couple of years on the Kardashian side," Caitlyn said while speaking at the Cambridge Union on Monday night. "To be honest, I don't talk to them anymore. Kim I haven't talked to in a year. They don't want me in their lives, they bashed me pretty badly. It's devastating when your kids do that. It really hurt."
She said her relationship with her biological daughters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, is still strong, but not so much with the Kardashians.
"I tried to be honest in my book — very fair and very nice. Unfortunately, they didn't take it that way," she said. "In the book I express some opinions and got shut down. It was not about the Kardashians. They were only mentioned on 20 pages. They made it more about them on television. The book was about my life. That caused a lot of the separation between us."
Back when the memoir was released in April, Caitlyn's ex-wife Kris Jenner blasted the book as "all made up." Kim Kardashian appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show around that same time to knock the book as well.
"My heart breaks for my mom, you know, because I feel like she’s been through so much and she's promoting this book and she’s saying all these things," Kim said. "I don’t think it’s necessary and I just feel like it’s unfair, things aren’t truthful."
Around that same time, Caitlyn said that she stayed honest in her book.
"First of all, I feel like the book is extraordinarily honest," she said on Good Morning America. "It is my perspective, and obviously when you do a book like that,
She went on to say that she's "sorry" Kris went "down that road" of reality TV.
"I'm just kind of sorry she went down that road, but she's a good person and we've had 23 great years together and raised wonderful, phenomenal kids," Caitlyn said.
