Kim Kardashian Calls Caitlyn Jenner's New Memoir "Hurtful"
She also talked about how the Paris robbery has made her a better person.
Kim Kardashian does not approve of the way Caitlyn Jenner depicted her mother, Kris Jenner, in Caitlyn's new memoir The Secrets of My Life.
"My heart breaks for my mom," Kardashian told Ellen DeGeneres on DeGeneres' eponymous daytime talk show. "Because I feel like she’s been through so much." She said she feels like Caitlyn is not being honest about "certain things" about Kris and other facts in the book and when she promotes the memoir. "I just feel like it’s unfair, things aren’t truthful."
She continued, "I feel like it's taken her a really long time to be honest with herself, so I don’t expect her to be honest you know, about my mom now, but it’s just so hurtful. I wish her all the success in the world, but not at our expense."
Kardashian said that right now the only people in her family who have a relationship with Caitlyn are Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
"I haven’t talked to her in a couple of weeks and I’ll always, I mean, I’ll always love her. That was my stepdad for so many years," Kardashian said. She said Caitlyn taught her about character when she was growing up, but that Kardashian doesn't "respect the character that [Caitlyn] is showing now."
"It’s still Kendall and Kylie's dad, so I want to be respectful, but I just feel like there’s no need for a book. Tell your story, but just don’t bash other people, you know. I just think, like, it’s not tasteful."
Kardashian also spoke out about the Paris robbery, saying that she felt that experience has changed her into a better person.
"I feel like that was so meant to happen to me," Kardashian said, starting to tear up. "I'm such a different person."
"Things happen in your life to teach you things. I was definitely materialistic before," she said, adding, "I'm so happy that my kids get this me. I just don't care about that stuff anymore."
Kardashian, who was bare of jewels, said her lawyers told her the robbers had been following her for two years and watching her in interviews and on social media when she would talk about expensive jewelry. After the robbery, Kardashian said she doesn't know if she'll ever wear real jewelry again.
DeGeneres interjected some comic relief when Kardashian recounted the incident, saying that the robbers had asked the hotel doorman, "Where's the rapper's wife?"
"How dare them not know your name," joked DeGeneres.
