The Kardashian soap opera spilled onto the “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” with Kim Kardashian defending her mother, Kris, amid details in stepdad Caitlyn Jenner’s new book.
“My heart breaks for my mom, you know, because I feel like she’s been through so much and she’s promoting this book and she’s saying all these things,” Kim told DeGeneres. “I don’t think it’s necessary and I just feel like it’s unfair, things aren’t truthful.”
According to USA Today, “In the book, Jenner all but says how much her then-wife knew about her gender dysphoria, which contradicts some of Kris’s past comments on the subject.”
“I tell Kris about my gender issues before I make love to her,” Caitlyn writes. “Kris restores my credibility. She helps to restore the image of Bruce. I also believe, and once again this is my opinion only, that Kris gets something from me. So sometimes I wondered if Kris was making a statement to her former husband: a big (expletive) you.”
Entertainment Weekly noted that Caitlyn defended the book on ‘Good Morning America’ Monday, saying: “It is my perspective and, obviously, when you do a book like that, you know, there’s different opinions. I have a lot of friends that know the truth and know what I’ve been through and know the whole situation.”
Commenting on her ex-wife’s reaction to the memoir, Caitlyn said, “I’m just kind of sorry she went down that road. But she’s a good person and we’ve had 23 good years together and raised wonderful, phenomenal kids.”
