Kim Kardashian is not afraid to tell you the cold, hard truth when it comes to stories about her life and the people in it, including her famous mom and former stepfather. In a recent discussion, the 36-year-old reality television personality did not hold back information when asked about her folks and the state of their reported feud. Kardashian made it clear that there is a slim chance Caitlyn Jenner and Kris Jenner will ever put aside their differences and reunite as friends. In fact, regarding how much of a shot the former spouses have of ever overcoming their differences, Kardashian explained,
What Kim Kardashian said during Plead the Fifth, a truth-telling segment on Watch What Happens with Andy Cohen, seemed to underscore previous statements expressed by Caitlyn Jenner, Kris Jenner, and Kardashian herself. Earlier this year, Kris Jenner revealed her animosity toward Caitlyn Jenner on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. According to the matriarch of the Kardashian-Jenner crew, Caitlyn Jenner had thrown their already strained rapport off of a cliff by including allegedly false stories in her memoir, Story of My Life.
Caitlyn Jenner, on the other hand, spoke in interviews about how she understood the negative response from the famous family but refused to stand down and not tell her side of the story. Moreover, Jenner revealed she no longer speaks to Kim Kardashian or her sister, Khloe Kardashian. Jenner made it sound like she had stepped away from the family to let heated feelings cool down; however, the way Kim Kardashian spoke in this interview made it seem like the boiling emotions continue to simmer without a chance for reconciliation. It echoed what Kim Kardashian told Ellen DeGeneres earlier this year about her decision to distance herself from Caitlyn Jenner after the publication of the memoir.
The heated state of affairs between Caitlyn Jenner and Kris Jenner is not necessarily a new thing. They weathered a tumultuous marriage for a long time before divorcing a few years ago. Perhaps what is different now is that there is almost no question about whether or not they will ever be friendly again. Check out Kim Kardashian's full answer and more here:
After Caitlyn Jenner announced her intention to transition genders, people surmised that many of the marital problems between her and Kris Jenner had hinged upon Caitlyn Jenner's desire to leave behind her life as Bruce Jenner. Still, even when the exes were supposedly friendly later, it remained evident the complexities of their relationship had left scarring memories, and not everything was so cut and dried.
So, if the stories in Caitlyn Jenner's memoir truly were the straw that broke the camel's back, perhaps it was a blessing in disguise. Everyone should be allowed to have peace of mind, and sometimes the best way to find it is by letting go of the past.
