After Caitlyn Jenner announced her intent to transition genders, one of her biggest allies was her stepdaughter, Kim Kardashian. Much has changed since then. Now the relationship between Jenner and Kardashian sounds strained at best and non-existent at worst. Jenner opened up about the nosedive her relationship with Kardashian has taken, saying,
To be honest with you, I really haven't talked to her in a long time. I've kind of let everything calm down. So I kind of keep my distance. I'm out right now trying to make a difference in the world.
Caitlyn Jenner shared the words in an interview via satellite with Australia's version of The Today Show. She also said how much she loves her stepdaughter. But what exactly happened? On an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians from earlier this year, Kris Jenner talked about the hurt emotions she felt while reading Caitlyn Jenner's new book, The Story of My Life. Kris Jenner divulged her upset feelings to her daughters, Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian. Caitlyn Jenner seemed to understand the heated feelings about supposedly controversial stories in her book. She explained herself in the interview, saying,
This book is my book about my opinions on issues and things that had happened with me and my family. ... Anytime I express my opinion, you know, with my family, there's always challenges in doing that. But, yeah, I'm proud of what's in there.
It is disappointing to hear Caitlyn Jenner and Kim Kardashian are not communicating, but it makes sense. Odds are Kim Kardashian has her mom's back over Caitlyn Jenner's this time. In fact, it sounds like Khloe Kardashian feels the same way. Last month, Caitlyn Jenner revealed she and Khloe Kardashian have not communicated in two years. Moreover, Caitlyn Jenner explained she has not talked to Kris Jenner since the publication of the memoir, either.
Of course, as a child, Kim Kardashian knew Caitlyn Jenner as her stepdad, Bruce Jenner. Some members of the famous family seemed icy toward Caitlyn Jenner during the transition. However, Kim Kardashian appeared to be rooting for her stepdad. Once Jenner stepped into the spotlight as Caitlyn, she and Kim Kardashian seemed to share a unique camaraderie. Kardashian even appeared on episodes of Jenner's reality television show, I Am Cait. But last month, when Kim Kardashian sat down for an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, the reality television personality admitted Caitlyn Jenner's memoir was part of the reason she decided to avoid Caitlyn Jenner. Kardashian said some of the stories in the book are false, and they hurt Kris Jenner's feelings.
So, perhaps Caitlyn Jenner burned that bridge and she will not reunite with her estranged family members this time. Whatever happens, we will be sure to let you know.
