Caitlyn Jenner is widely regarded as the “world’s greatest athlete.” She made a name for herself in television, film, writing, auto racing, business, and as a Playgirl cover model. Caitlyn recently expressed her support for the Kardashians landing a new Hulu show.
According to Page Six, Caitlyn Jenner is “happy” that her family will be able to continue their reality TV legacy with “The Kardashians,” their new Hulu show. The 72-year-old Olympic gold medalist shared Variety’s new cover story on her ex-wife Kris Jenner and former stepdaughters Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, and Khloé Kardashian, who reportedly signed a nine-figure deal with the streaming service, on Twitter on Thursday.
“I was there when this started from day one,” Caitlyn wrote, adding that she “will not appear” in the upcoming series.
“I watched it grow. And doing the show for almost 20 seasons was one of the highlights of my life.”
“To be able to work with my family for all those years, connect with the fans, it was incredible. Happy that it continues for my family.”
When “KUWTK” debuted on E! in 2007, Caitlyn was married to Kris. However, after 23 years of marriage and two daughters of their own, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, the former couple divorced in 2014. Even though Caitlyn had her family’s full support, the couple’s relationship fell apart just as she began to transition into a woman.
However, when the retired decathlete published her memoir, “The Secrets of My Life,” in 2017 and appeared to disparage Kris, it caused a schism among Caitlyn, her former stepdaughters, and her ex-wife. Kris fumed on “KUWTK” that everything in the book was “made up.” In an April 2017 episode, she told her daughters, “None of it makes sense.”
“I read it and basically the only nice thing she had to say was that I was great socially at a party one time. Everything she says is all made up. Why does everything have to be that Kris is such a b*tch and an a–hole?”
Caitlyn did not appear on “KUWTK” until 2016, but she was invited back for the show’s final season in 2021. “The Kardashians” premieres on Hulu on April 14. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
