In The Secrets of My Life, Jenner reveals the story of her experience as a transgender woman and the process of her transition, but the personal stories in the book are too much for both Kris and Kim.
Appearing on Good Morning Britain, Jenner says that since the book came out, neither Kris nor Kim has spoken to her.
“I went overboard to be nice, to be friendly, to be open, but also tell my story and my side of the story,” Jenner said. “Since the book came out, I’ve never talked to Kris again. Kim, I haven’t talked to in six, nine months, whatever it is.”
“I love Kim. She’s a great person,” Jenner added. “I have such respect for her as a mother, as a businessperson, but like Kris, she is very opinionated, but that’s okay. I love that about her. It’s unfortunate, because actually, Kim was the first one I talked to about this issue. She was very straightforward with me. She’s been very, very good on it.”
The silence from those people in her family has been difficult for Jenner. “It’s a big loss in my life, not having her there anymore. And to me, I mean, that’s sad. I love all my children. I raised them. I spent 20, almost 25 years of my life with all these kids.”
That hasn’t been true of all Jenner’s kids, though. “My kids — especially Kendall and Kylie, who I spent a lot of time with, and the Jenner side I spend a lot of time with — have been nothing but supportive, and from that standpoint, it’s been great,” she said. “But the Kardashian side, honestly, I really don’t talk to them very often, and… I just kind of deal with that. Fortunately, I have a lot of children.”
