Admit it. The Kardashians have been pretty low-key these past few weeks. And just when we thought our prayers were answered, they made tabloid headlines for another potential family scandal. Caitlyn Jenner, the transgender celebrity pioneering the movement in Hollywood, has released her memoir Secrets Of My Life. In the book, she talks about life as Bruce Jenner, the Olympic runner and husband to Kris Jenner and her kids, the famous Kardashians. One of the things she’s made it a point to bring out in her book is to talk about her former wife in a negative manner. Whether it’s true or not, whether this is a publicity stunt by the family or not, no one knows. But Kim Kardashian says she doesn’t like the portrayal of her mom on The Ellen Show with Ellen DeGeneres.
Wearing a skin-fitting off-shoulder dress that accentuated her curves, she appeared on the show with a new slick lob. She spoke about the most important things in her life – her husband, rapper Kanye West, her children – North and Saint and also some controversies that had the family in the headlines.
First, she spoke about the upcoming memoir from Caitlyn called Secrets Of My Life. She said that things that had been written about Kris Jenner were wrong and that her step-mother was basically lying. “She’s not being honest about some things about my mom, and other things. I feel like it’s taken her a really long time to be honest with herself, but it’s just so hurtful. I wish her all the success in the world, but not at our expense.”
She also spoke about the harrowing Paris robbery that had her scared for her life. If you remember the Kim Kardashian who was always about hoarding fashion trends and was once accused by her mother of being “addicted to shopping”, then here’s a totally new version of her. Recalling last October’s heist that left her tied up and gagged in her bathroom at gunpoint during Paris Fashion Week, Kim said: “I’m such a different person now. It was probably no secret, I mean you see it on the show when I was being flashy, I was definitely materialistic before – not that there’s anything bad about having things and working hard to get those things…”
She continued that she is glad her infants get to see this new side to her. She isn’t about that bling anymore. She went on into detail about the events of that fateful night. The robbers tied up the concierge below and came up to her flat. They asked for the “rapper’s wife”. A friend was staying in the condo below, and heard her screams and was the one to call the police. Kim says that the robbers had been following her on social media for the past two years. They saw her opulence displayed for the world to see, and wanted part of it.
Holding back tears, Kim Kardashian spoke about what she learnt from the ordeal. “I know that that was meant to happen to me…like, I’m such a different person. Things happen in your life to teach you things.”
