‘I was just turning 40 and met Kris on a blind date, we hit it off from day one. Was it love at first sight? Pretty close to that, yes. 

‘I was totally impressed with her and how she lived her life – she had four kids, I had four kids… and we got married five and a half months later! It was very quick.’

As far as their relationship now is concerned, she explained: ‘Well Kris, I really never talk to anymore. Yeah, it’s sad. 

‘If there’s any communication, my manager kind of talks to her and when you have as many kids as I have, you’re closer to some than you are to others… I certainly see them and we do this and that. 

‘I’m much closer to the Jenner side, but Kris, I don’t really have any more contact with her. It’s kind of sad because we went through a lot.’ 

The new documentary series will feature unseen archival footage and first-hand testimony from the family’s inner circle.

As one of the most famous families in the world, the programme, produced by 72 Films, explores their family dynamics, scandals, controversial business deals and personal struggles.

Caitlyn’s presence in the family has caused friction for some time – with a memorable Keeping Up With The Kardashians scene showing Kendall rowing with Kris over not inviting her to the family’s Christmas Eve party.

The former Olympic athlete was also said to be ‘shocked’ last year when she didn’t receive an invite to Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s third wedding in Italy. 

The drama first arose in 2017, as newly-transitioned Caitlyn came out with her memoir, The Secrets Of My Life, which included a warts-and-all depiction of Kris and their marriage.

‘I tell Kris about my gender issues before I make love to her,’ Caitlyn insisted in the book, some of whose claims Kris has publicly denied.

‘This will always be a subject of dispute between Kris and me as to how much she could intuit about my gender issues. She insists that she was taken by surprise by my ultimate transition to Caitlyn,’ the author continued. 

‘I told her I dressed as a woman, and she knew I did, because I did it several times in front of her after we were married.’

The Kardashian sisters instantly closed ranks around their mother, while Caitlyn’s relationship with Khloe went on to deteriorate into a rancorous years-long feud.

Speaking about the series, Caitlyn said: ‘I was happy to participate in the interview process to share my side which points to the strength, influence, and prowess my family has in captivating the world’s attention and keeping it over the years. 

‘I am incredibly proud of all my children and stepchildren.’ 

Upon tying the knot with Kris in 1991, Caitlyn became the stepfather of her children whom she welcomed with late attorney, Robert Kardashian: Kourtney, 44, Kim, 42, Khloe, and also Rob, 36. He notably passed away in 2003 after a battle with esophageal cancer.

Throughout the course of Caitlyn and Kris’ marriage, they also welcomed daughters Kendall and Kylie. However, the former couple finalized their divorce in 2015, the same year Jenner came out as transgender. 

Tensions also ensued after Caitlyn was shut out of the family’s new Hulu show, The Kardashians.

Caitlyn’s ex-wife Kris Jenner confirmed to Variety that she was not included in the series, which see’s the Kardashian-Jenner women split a massive nine-figure salary.

‘I was there when this started from day one. I watched it grow. And doing the show for almost 20 seasons was one of the highlights of my life,’ began Caitlyn in a tweet.

She continued: ‘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,’ concluded the star, who’d penned her tweet in response to a tweet by Variety promoting the Kardashian’s recent interview.

Caitlyn was a regular on Keeping Up With The Kardashians from it’s very first season, which premiered on E! in October 2007, until 2015.

The reality show was the brainchild of Kris and TV host and producer Ryan Seacrest, and followed the lives of Kris’ family, which included Caitlyn – then Bruce – along with their children.

Viewers bore witness to the end of her 22-year marriage to Kris, as well as her brave decision to come out as transgender.

Caitlyn further documented her transition and new life as a single woman on the KUWTK spinoff series I Am Cait, which aired for two seasons on E!

After 14 years, the Kardashian-Jenner clan decided to pull the plug on their long-running reality series and announced in 2020 that the 20th season would be its last.

In an interview with Australia’s The Morning Show, Caitlyn claimed that she was not informed by her family about the show’s end.

‘I heard it on the news!’ she said. ‘Nobody called me, I heard it through the media. Was I surprised? No.’

Keeping Up With The Kardashians officially concluded in June 2021, with the family participating in a two-part reunion special. Caitlyn did not make an appearance.

During the special, Kris briefly spoke on their failed marriage and admitted to host Andy Cohen that her and Caitlyn did have ‘a lot of really great years’ together.

When asked if Caitlyn’s transition played a role in their divorce, Kris shutdown the notion and confessed that they probably would have split up regardless.
