Keeping Up With Kardashians Recap

(E)

On Sunday’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” nearly every member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan became upset with Caitlyn Jenner after reading her memoir, The Secrets of My Life. Get the full episode recap below!

As the episode began, Caitlyn called Kim and asked if she wanted to meet and catch up, but Kim was hesitant because her mom Kris was infuriated with Caitlyn over what she wrote about her in her book. “My mom is really hurt by Cait’s book,” Kim noted in a confessional, but further admitted that she likes to “keep the peace” and feels badly not meeting Caitlyn because she’s “Kendall and Kylie’s dad and I want to be respectful.” Kim then called her mom and asked if she’d be okay with her meeting Caitlyn and getting a copy of her book. Kris was unsure at first, saying, “I spent so many days crying about it,” but ultimately decided Kim should read the memoir for herself.

Caitlyn later visited Kim at her house and gifted her with a copy of her memoir. “Mom’s obviously upset about it,” Kim told the transgender reality star, who responded, “I know and that really bothers me. But I have to be honest in the book about what my feelings are.” Caitlyn added, “I’ll always love her. We’ll always have 23 years of our lives raising all these children. I’m not throwing that all out.” But Kim contended, “Well, I think that’s what she thinks. I’m going to read it. I’ll tell you honestly if I feel like I get why she’s upset or I don’t.” Caitlyn further noted, “This book, it’s my story. Everyone has stuff in life they have to deal with and this is how I dealt with it.” Kim then half-jokingly said, “I’ll let you know if I’ll still be speaking to you after I read this book,” to which Caitlyn suggested, “Read it with an open mind.”

But immediately after reading Caitlyn’s book, an angry Kim gave her adverse reaction to Kourtney. “She’s so angry at mom, like for no reason,” she noted. “It was like, ‘I didn’t see my kids because of Kris.’ Like, grow up and say, ‘I didn’t call my kids!'” Kim further told her sister how Caitlyn “discredits mom” throughout the book, “insinuating that mom took [their money] and pocketed it and had this huge savings.” But Kourtney insisted this wasn’t the case. “They made the money together and even when mom would book appearances, I worked for her, I would hear her phone calls in the office,” she said. “She would hustle to get speeches. She changed Caitlyn’s career and she made her have this motivational speaker business.”

Kim went on to reveal the reason Caitlyn gives in her book for not speaking about the Kardashians during her 2015 interview with Diane Sawyer. Kim noted, “Then she said, ‘The Kardashians were so upset when their names weren’t mentioned in Diane Sawyer, but it was all deliberate. We did research and people put the word Kardasahian with publicity stunt and so we deliberately never put the name in there.'” Kourtney contended, “That sounds pathetic. Have some class and respect for someone you’ve been with for that many years.” Kim then asked, “Why do you want to be a part of the family if you’re just gonna talk sh*t?” She added in a confessional, “If you turn on my mom and you continue to bash us, I can’t even for the sake of my sisters spend time with someone who doesn’t even care about my mother. It’s enough already.”

Kim later told Kris her reaction to Caitlyn’s book, saying she found it “so negative” and didn’t understand why she blamed her for everything that went wrong in their marriage. “Absolutely,” the momager said. Kim noted the book’s accusation that Kris had been “hoarding” money for years, but the matriarch asserted, “She never paid a bill from 1972. She didn’t know how much a gardener was, and in the book writes, ‘Well, Kris didn’t need me anymore. All the checks for [the reality show], they all went to Kris.'” She continued, “Went to Kris?! How about it went to the mortgage and the insurance and education? You start talking about how I was hoarding money when we didn’t even have it?!”

Kris also said that Caitlyn never told her the real reason she got a divorce from ex-wife Linda Thompson, noting, “Cait could’ve told me the story that she writes about in the book, which is that Linda got so angry and nasty that Cait had to tell her about her gender dysphoria.” The momager then asked, “Why wouldn’t you have just told me what happened with Linda so at least I could make my own decision if I wanted to get married to someone who really wanted to be a woman?” Kim offered, “She just literally started three families with three different people and fu**ed everyone over,” to which Kris responded, “100 percent. But she can’t handle that negative publicity, so I’m going to be the scapegoat.” Kim concluded, “It’s so whack.” Kris and Kim both agreed it was time for them to move on from Caitlyn.

Even Caitlyn’s daughter Kendall got upset after Kim told her what was written in the memoir. Kim told her sister the book is “negative” and Caitlyn repeatedly slams their mom and the Kardashian siblings. “That’s so awful… She helped raise all of you guys. Those are partly your kids too, so like what the f**k?” Kendall added, “She’s really pushing herself further and further away from all of us.”

Kendall later went to her mom’s house and admitted she was also upset about her dad’s book, to which Kris replied, “It could have been handled in the most amazing, loving way. Talk about your journey and keep it to that. That I would have had great respect for.” Instead, said the matriarch, Caitlyn set out to make her look like “such a bad person.” Kris added, “There’s lies that are printed in a book that lives there for the end of time. So, your children are going to read this book about their grandparent and have a story that’s fabricated.” Kendall agreed and added, “Then she goes around dissing the Kardashians, but it’s like, those are the kids that you raised! That makes no sense to me that she would go around bashing [them] for no reason. It’s insane, mom!”
