KEY POINTS

  • Caitlyn Jenner is returning for the final season of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians”
  • The reality star said she really loved doing the show when she was still part of it
  • The former Olympian refused to comment on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s divorce

Caitlyn Jenner may have stepped away from “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” after she transitioned, but this does not mean she didn’t enjoy doing the show while she was actively part of it. This is what the reality star revealed this week while confirming her participation in the long-running reality series’ final season. 

In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight Thursday, the former Olympian, 71, shared that she’s returning to the Kardashian-Jenner clan’s famous series for its send-off. Jenner was part of the original cast of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” when it debuted, but she was still known as Bruce Jenner back then. She dropped from being a series regular after divorcing Kris Jenner in 2015. 

“Put it this way, I am in the final season. Over the 10 years I did the show, I really enjoyed doing the show,” Jenner said.

She added that the series actually brought their entire family “very close together” as they went through a lot while filming it. 

“I think I had probably some of the best conversations with my kids on camera. A lot of times, you know, things happen and as a parent, you're going, 'Oh, I better talk to the kid about that,' and you just don't do it as quickly,” she shared.

“You know, you kind of, it's uncomfortable, but with the show, you have to talk to them about it, like, right now, and so I think it really brought the family much closer,” Jenner continued. 

Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s father also spoke about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s divorce, which has been making headlines for weeks now. Jenner refused to comment on the issue since she wants the ex-couple to address it themselves. 

“One thing that I have learned in being involved with this family is let them speak for themselves. I love Kim, I love Kanye, I mean we really had a good relationship and I hope the best for both of them, but to find out what is going on, you are going to have to talk to them,” she said. 

Jenner appeared on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” from 2007 to 2016 before doing her own reality series “I Am Cait,” which was unfortunately canceled after its sophomore run.

Last September, Jenner revealed in an interview with Australia’s “The Morning Show” that she had no idea that the 20th season would be “KUWTK's” last installment. She only learned about it from the news. Jenner then admitted that she wasn’t surprised that it was wrapping up because it has been going on for so long.

“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” Season 20 premiered on Thursday on E!
