Caitlyn Jenner speaks to fellow I’m A Celeb campmate about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
Since we first found out that Caitlyn Jenner was entering the I’m A Celeb jungle, we’ve been anticipating her talking about her world-famous family. In last night’s episode of the reality show, the decathlete spoke to Adele Roberts about Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West.
The 70-year-old campmate conversed with the BBC Radio 1 DJ about her belief that college (university) isn’t a necessary ingredient for success which led her to discuss her degree-less step-daughter’s journey to the top:”Kimberly never went to college. Literally, as soon as she got out of high school she stated businesses.”
What has Caitlyn Jenner said about the Kardashians?
She continued by telling Roberts about ‘Out of the Closet’, Kim Kardashian’s first business, which saw Kimberly go into the closets of Beverley Hills ladies (some of which were around 2,000 square feet) to help them figure out what they wanted to keep and what they wanted to get rid of. Caitlyn revealed that Kim then took the clothes that the women were happy to discard, sold the clothes on her eBay page and took a 30% commission.
What has she said about Kanye West?
Impressed by this, Adele asked Caitlyn if she thought Kim helped Kanye on his journey to becoming a fashion designer. Caitlyn replied with a nod and an enthusiastic ‘Oh yeah’ and also prompted Caitlyn to share her opinion on the rapper, saying “I like Kanye. Kanye was very, very good to me”.
After discussing KimYe with Caitlyn, Adele checked in to the jungle diary room to admit that she found conversing with Caitlyn surreal, as it’s rare to be able to discuss the extensive family with a member of the Kardashian/Jenner/West family themselves.
As Caitlyn continues to speak highly of her relatives in the I’m A Celeb jungle, it’s interesting to see none of them show support for her on social media – even though she told her fellow campmates that they’re all aware she’s taking part.
In fact, recent reports are suggesting that Kris Jenner is extremely uncomfortable about her former partner being on the TV show as she fears that she will expose family secrets.
“Ever since Kris found out about Caitlyn’s massive fee she’s getting paid for the jungle, she’s been concerned Caitlyn is being paid to spill secrets about the family. 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. Before Caitlyn left for Australia, she wished her good luck – and let her know she’d be watching to see what she says.” – An anonymous source speaking to The Sun
Perhaps Kris Jenner is behind Caitlyn’s bushtucker trials after all.
