Things are pretty strained between the Kardashians and Jenners when it comes to the family’s relationship with Caitlyn, at the moment. Stemming from Caitlyn Jenner’s recently published memoir, “The Secrets of My Life,” which Kris Jenner claims is full of self-serving lies, the famous kids have had staunch reactions to the cringe-worthy (and potentially hurtful) circumstance, sparking what some are calling a full-on family feud. That’s why Kim Kardashian’s latest comments about the situation are somewhat surprising.
“I definitely got upset about [the memoir],” the 36-year-old mother-of-two said during a sneak peek of her appearance on The View which will air on Tuesday, June 20. However, she added that she feels like things will work out in the end, saying, “In our family, we definitely are always so close and stick through everything. Everything is definitely going to be fine.”
She also revealed that although she was a “little shocked” by Caitlyn “putting some things out there that just weren’t true or didn’t really make sense or were hurtful,” she explains, “at the end of the day, my mom and Caitlyn had a 25-year relationship and you have to have some respect for it.”
When addressing the parts of Jenner’s memoir which may or may not be true, Kardashian has a fair and totally reasonable take on the situation. “Maybe their stories are different. Maybe their accounts are different. I don’t want to discredit [Caitlyn’s] feelings or her account, but when all of us were there witnessing some things and seeing things really differently, it was just a little bit surprising to me.”
Despite the drama, Kardashian admits that she still cares for Jenner and always will, saying, “She’ll always be my stepdad and always be a person that raised me and taught me so much in life. [She] stepped up to the plate, took over for my dad when he passed away, and I’ll never forget what Caitlyn instilled in us as kids and was a part of who I am today. I’ll never forget that. She’ll always be a part of me.”
And as for the current family tension, she feels that it can only last so long (though admitting that she hasn’t spoken to Jenner in the “last couple months”), convinced that in the end their strong bond will come through. “We’re just taking a breather. We’ll get it together… it’ll work out.”
