Caitlyn Jenner's Mom Esther Jenner, 93, Doesn't Understand Why KUWTK Is 'Such a Hit'
Caitlyn Jenner’s mom, Esther Jenner, revealed that she doesn’t understand why the Kardashians’ reality show, “KUWTK,” is such a hit.
The 93-year-old mother of Caitlyn Jenner granted an exclusive interview with MailOnline, where she opened up about her aversion to the hit show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”

Esther Jenner has been open in the past about her dislike for the “KUWTK” star, and Caitlyn’s ex-wife, Kris Jenner, tagging her a hyper-controlling wife who made her(Esther) daughter, former Bruce Jenner, appear spineless.
This week, however, the 93-year-old came out with another shocker, admitting to DailyMail that she still couldn’t watch the Kardashian’s hit reality show, because it portrayed her daughter as a milk-toast-man. Speaking to the outlet, she said:
“I wasn’t fond of that program, there was no plot, and why it was such a hit I’ll never know, and I guess it still is.”
The 93-year-old also affirmed her difficulty in using the right pronouns when referring to her daughter, who was born Bruce Jenner, before her gender transition, but that was no proof that she was against her becoming a trans woman.
Caitlyn’s mom went into details of how she has adapted to her daughter’s new gender in the last two years and hoped others would follow suit while saying:
“It’s nothing she asked for, it’s a condition, and it starts in the mother’s womb.”
Despite her fears that her daughter’s appearance on her new show, “I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here,” would open her up to prospective intimidation by other campmates; she has faith in the 70-year-old’s determination.

“The thing I know about Caitlyn, and I know her well, is that she has a lot of determination. How do you think she ever won that gold medal in decathlon?”
While she is confident that the 70-year-old has her act under control, Esther revealed that she would not be watching the reality camping show either.
According to her, it was torture seeing her daughter camping out in Australia, risking her life, and getting frightened, when she was better off on the golf course.
However, the 93-year-old thinks the show would be a blast, and her daughter would quickly become a fan-favorite on the celebrity-studded program.
Caitlyn might be out having the adventure of a lifetime in Australia, and getting paid for it, but the implication has left the Kardashian brood under a certain level of tension, especially the momager, Kris.
Earlier this week, a source disclosed to The Sun that the 64-year-old Kardashian matriarch feared that the trans woman would reveal secrets about the family on the show, saying:
“Kris doesn’t care what Caitlyn says about her or their marriage, after all, she had her book and her TV show, but she’s scared and horrified about Caitlyn damaging Kim or Kylie’s brands by telling campmates about their off-screen private lives.”

With the ITV reality show gaining more grounds, Caitlyn might just be forced to reveal those secrets, and the world can hardly wait.
