It's About To Go Off Between The Kardashians And Caitlyn

This week's KUWTK looks set to be dedicated to the fallout from Caitlyn's book.

Posted on

You probably don't need me to remind you of the shedload of drama currently unfolding between the Kardashians and Caitlyn Jenner.

The drama revolves around Caitlyn's autobiography, in which parts are less than complimentary about Kris Jenner. In the book she suggests Kris "knew" about her desire to transition, and accuses her of controlling her money and damaging her relationships with her children and family.

Kris has claimed the only positive words about her in the book refer to her being "great socially at a party once".


She claimed the rest of the book depicts her as a "bitch and an asshole," and has said she is "done" with Caitlyn.

Since then, her Kardashian children have rallied in support of their mother, with Caitlyn confirming she's no longer speaking to Kim.


Due to the delay between the filming of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and transmission, we're witnessing the drama unfold on screen now, as Caitlyn promotes the book.


The trailer ends with an even more cryptic scene involving Kendall and Kris. Kendall looks kinda annoyed as she says: "It's insane, mom," before repeating the statement while banging her hands on the table.


The scene opens with Kourtney and Kim both saying they suspected Kris was "exaggerating" when she first described the contents of the book.


Kim says: "Caitlyn brought me the book, so I read it." Kourtney asks: "Did you read the whole thing? Because I was thinking, "Is mom exaggerating and making a big deal?" Kim confirmed: "That's what I thought. That's why I read the whole thing, I wanted to be really fair."

However, Kim goes on to say that Caitlyn seems "so angry" at Kris for "no reason." She also references the part of the book in which Caitlyn blames Kris for the breakdown of her relationships with the four children from her previous marriages, as well as her sister.


Kim continued: "It was like, 'I didn't speak to my sister because of Kris. I didn't see my kids because of Kris.' Like, grow up and say: I didn't call my kids."

Kim then discusses a passage in the book in which it's alleged that Kris controlled Caitlyn's finances.


Kim said: "Caitlyn discredits mom. She said: 'I didn't see a dime of my money.' She was insinuating that mom took the cheque and pocketed it, and had these huge savings."


Kim said: "Like, the part of our lives that people don't ever see, is for a good 10 or 15 years when they [Kris and Caitlyn] first moved to Hidden Hills, when no one lived in Hidden Hills – everyone was like, "Oh my god, we're moving out of Beverly Hills, we've gotta be broke." We were borrowing money from grandma..."

Kourtney then interjects to say they also borrowed money from her, before Kim concludes: "Right – we couldn't pay the bills. The money wasn't going in her [Kris'] pocket."


Kourtney goes on to credit Kris for overhauling Caitlyn's ailing career by setting her up as a motivational speaker.


Kourtney says: "They made the money together. I worked for mom, and I would hear her phonecalls in the office. She would hustle to get speeches. She changed Caitlyn's career – she made Caitlyn have this motivational speaker business."

Kim then refers to Caitlyn revealing she'd deliberately omitted all mention of the Kardashians during her coming out interview with Diane Sawyer.


Kim says: "And then she said: The Kardashians were so upset when their names weren't mentioned in the Diane Sawyer interview, but it was all deliberate. We did research, and any time the name Kardashian was mentioned, people put the word with publicity stunt, and so we deliberately didn't put the name in there."

The trailer comes hot on the heels of Kim's appearance on Watch What Happens Live on Saturday, in which she said there was almost a "zero percent chance" of Kris ever speaking to Caitlyn again.


When asked what the chances were, Kim said: "Zero. Actually, two. Two percent. And those two are Kendall and Kylie."

A spokesperson for Caitlyn Jenner has been contacted for comment.
