The New "KUWTK" Just Proved The Kardashians Are Totally Done With Caitlyn

"It's not because you're trans. I'm not talking to you because you're a bad, mean person."

It's no secret the relationship between Caitlyn Jenner and the Kardashian side of her family has been strained in recent months.

The tension just got worse back in April, when Caitlyn revealed she would be releasing a tell-all book about her life, including her relationship with Kris, her time on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and her transition.

First, we saw Kim, Khloé, and Kourtney finding out that Caitlyn had undergone sex reassignment surgery by reading it on the news.


"Why couldn't she say that to us?" Kim said after finding out. "We would understand. She makes it, 'Woe is me, woe is me.'"


Caitlyn revealed back in May that she was no longer speaking with Kim, and her relationship with Khloé has been strained for more than a year.

I love Kimberly, I think she's a wonderful person. But, well, 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 stay – you know, I keep my distance. I'm out there trying to make a difference in the world. There's a lot of drama in the Kardashian family.

In a confessional interview after finding out about Caitlyn's surgery, Kim said that while Caitlyn did give her a copy of the book before it was published, she believes she was given an edited version.


"I just don't get why you would go to the trouble of giving me a book and saying, 'Here's my book, I want you to read it,'" Kim said. "Clearly she gave me a different book with everything edited out that she didn't want us to see."


Caitlyn said last month that, while she is proud of the book, the family didn't react well to it, and that's why she hasn't spoken to them since it was released.

The book was my story. It was my opinion on the way a lot of things happened. I was honest and I'm extraordinarily proud of it. Unfortunately, the Kardashians and especially Kris, didn't react that way. So I really haven't talked to them. Since the book came out, I've never talked to Kris.

Later in the episode, we saw Kim, Khloé, and Kourtney finding out that Caitlyn's book says their father, Robert Kardashian, who famously defended O.J. Simpson during his murder trial, believed that O.J. was guilty.


"It is so shady that Caitlyn gave me the book, and said, 'In the final version there's a few more things in it, but don't worry, it's nothing about you,'" Kim said. "So she lied to me. Because that is about me if it's about our dad."


And if all that drama wasn't enough, we then saw Kim call Caitlyn to warn her against saying anything to the media about Kendall's controversial Pepsi ad.


Earlier in the episode, Kendall had admitted that she was worried her dad would say something about the ad during an interview on her book tour and make everything worse.

And that left both Kim and Kendall pissed off with Caitlyn, because they think she ended up making the controversy worse.


"My dad doesn't actually know what happened," Kendall said. "She wouldn't know if I had known or not. She was not in the works of it or behind the scenes of it at all."

Of course, this is only one side of the story – we're sure Caitlyn will have something to say. A representative for Caitlyn has been contacted for comment.
