After Show: Kim Kardashian West’s Personal Life

If you thought 2018 might be the year that Caitlyn Jenner mends fences with Kris Jenner and the Kardashian siblings, then think again. Caitlyn sat down with Piers Morgan this week on Life Stories where she very candidly discussed why she kept her ex-wife and stepchildren out of the loop when it came time for to have her gender reassignment surgery.

The former Olympian was quite candid about her reasoning, sharing with the talk show host: “No, I didn’t tell anybody. It’s none of their business. No, it’s not that big a deal.”

Later, Piers asked Caitlyn if she didn't trust her family to keep her secret. Her response? “Of course not, of course I didn’t trust them.”

Caitlyn later continued, “I’d already been living as Caitlyn for a year and a half, nobody knows anything. I didn’t want them to leak it to the press and there was no reason for them to know about it.”

Caitlyn was more open about her life in her 2017 memoir, The Secrets of My Life, which caused a rift between the former Olympian and Kris' ex and kids. In fact, back in November, Caitlyn revealed that things remained strained, so much so that she shared it had been about a year since she spoke to Kim Kardashian. In her interview with Piers Morgan, she shared why she spilled all in her book, but kept her family in the dark: “I had to because I had to be honest. The book is about honesty.”

Caitlyn, however, does appear to remain close to her kids that she had with Kris. She was spotted with Kendall Jenner just this week and has remained quiet about rumors that Kylie Jenner is pregnant.
