Caitlyn Jenner was part of the Kardashian machine for 23 years during her marriage to Kris Jenner.
But since the couple officially divorced in 2015, the former Olympic athlete has had some unflattering things to say about the famous family.
Jenner’s latest remarks are set to air in Sky’s documentary series “House of Kardashian,” scheduled for release on October 8.
A reveal trailer for the series teases an interview with Jenner, 73, claiming that her former daughter-in-law Kim Kardashian “calculated” on fame from the start.
“Kimberly calculated from the beginning: ‘How can I become famous?’ “, says Jenner.
She also lets out a devilish laugh when asked what it was like working with Kris, who managed Caitlyn’s career after the 1976 Olympic decathlon.
“I was happy to participate in the interview process to share my perspective which highlights my family’s strength, influence and prowess in capturing and retaining the world’s attention over the years,” said Caitlyn in a statement about her decision to participate. in “House of the Kardashians”.
“I am incredibly proud of all my children and step-children,” she added.
Caitlyn is the stepfather of Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and Robert Kardashian. She and Kris are also the parents of Kendall and Kylie Jenner. The exes announced their separation in October 2003.
“We live separately and are much happier that way, but we will always have a lot of love and respect for each other,” their joint statement read at the time. “Even though we are apart, we will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our number one priority.”
The Post has reached out to representatives for Jenner and the Kardashian family for comment.
Let’s get back to the story of Caitlyn against the Kardashians.
April 2015: interview with Diane Sawyer
The feud between Caitlyn Jenner and the Kardashians began when Caitlyn told Diane Sawyer on “20/20” that she identified as a woman.
This was apparently the first time Kris Jenner and the Kardashian/Jenner ladies heard Caitlyn say she was transgender.
June 2015: cover of Vanity Fair
A few months after “20/20,” Caitlyn introduced herself to the world as the woman on the cover of Vanity Fair.
The Kardashian/Jenner clan also claimed they didn’t know about it until it became public.
This was also the first time Caitlyn destroyed her marriage to Kris. She claimed the reason for their divorce was “20 percent sex and 80 percent the way I was treated.”
Caitlyn and Kris disagreed on how much Mom knew about her husband’s gender identity issues throughout their marriage.
“A lot of times she wasn’t very nice,” Caitlyn said in the article. “People would see how badly I was treated. She controlled the money…all that sort of thing.
January 2016: Khloe Kardashian appears on Howard Stern
Khloe Kardashian appeared on the “Howard Stern Show” in January 2016 and claimed that Caitlyn told the family that the rumors about her were false.
But, according to Khloe, the family found out their stepfather was transitioning during a meeting with E! Network when someone mentioned that she was “airing a TV show about transitioning or something.”
She added that at first, Caitlyn only talked to the family about transitioning in front of the cameras.
“Maybe he felt like we couldn’t be that upset or something,” she speculated.
The Good American founder also claimed the family “didn’t know when he was going to start dressing fully as Caitlyn” and was upset about not being informed of his next steps.

During the season 12 premiere of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” an upset Caitlyn Jenner calls Kris Jenner to complain about Khloe Kardashian “talking bullshit” in her interview with Howard Stern.
The formerly married couple revisits Khloe’s intentions before a still-hurt Kris brings it back to 2015.
“What do you think I told you about Vanity Fair?” Kris shouted into the phone. “Fuck, you say something nice or you don’t say anything at all.” Everything you said was negative, so now you know how I feel.
“Khloe talks a lot of shit about family,” Caitlyn says.
“Khloe’s not here to get you,” Kris said before breaking down in tears. “You were his father. You have been her father since she was 5 years old. Like, give it a break.

Caitlyn Jenner opened up about Kris Jenner again in her 2017 memoir “The Secrets of My Life.”
In a jaw-dropping statement, Caitlyn wrote: “I talk to Kris about my gender issues before I make love to her. This will always be a point of contention between Kris and I as to how much she could understand my gender issues.
She continued: “She insists she was surprised by my ultimate transition to Caitlyn…I told her I dressed as a woman, and she knew because I did it several times in front of her after our marriage.”
The “lies” in Caitlyn’s book did not go down well with the family, especially Kim and Khloe Kardashian.
“Everything she said was made up,” Kris told her daughters on an episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
“Why does Kris have to be such a bitch and an asshole?” she said in the episode. “Throughout the book, Kris knew this. Kris knew it even before I made love to him. I’m like, “What? »

Kim also criticized Caitlyn on an episode of “KUWTK” for claiming in her book that her biological father, Robert Kardashian, believed his friend OJ Simpson was guilty of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson at one point.
“I have always supported Caitlyn. She’s a liar. He’s not a good person,” Kim said.
In November, Caitlyn spoke about her estrangement from family during a speech at Cambridge University.
“They don’t want me in their lives. …In the book I expressed some opinions and I was shot down. It wasn’t about the Kardashians. They were only mentioned on 20 pages. They talked about it more on TV,” Caitlyn retorted.
