Kendall Jenner Slams Media Coverage of Bruce Jenner, Talks Life on Reality TV
Jenner talks about her family, growing up in the spotlight and her own fame.
There are certain parts of her life she wants to remain private, and what her father Bruce Jenner is going through is one of them.
And reports that her father is undergoing a gender transition is definitely crossing the line.
Clearly upset by the headlines — most notably, an US Weekly cover reading, “Bruce’s Journey: How He Told His Kids, Kendall & Kylie finally hear it from him as cameras roll!” — Kendall lashes out when asked about it. “All that is bulls**t,” she says. “I don’t even know what they’re talking about, so I have no idea.”
“That’s why this life is different,” she adds about being asked to comment about the rumors surrounding her famous father. “That’s why this life isn’t normal. You know what I mean?”
As for life recorded by reality TV, it is hard for her to recall a time when she wasn’t in front of the cameras.
“It’s actually really hard for me to think of,” she says of imagining life without Keeping Up with the Kardashians. “But that day will come, and it’ll be fine. Everything that happens is still going to happen, just minus the cameras.”
Her mother and sisters chose this life. But “me and my little sister were placed in,” she reminds Baron. “We didn’t have a say. It was in our home. There was no way we couldn’t be on it.”
“Honestly, I can’t answer that question,” she responds when asked if she would have chosen differently. “I have no idea. I was 10 years old when the TV show started. I don’t remember what it was like before.”
Despite the cameras always being present, she doesn’t feel like she needs to play a character on the show. “It’s completely me,” she says. She also denies that the producers have a role in shaping the show into story lines and narratives. “It’s all real, so when there’s a story line, it’s all done after the fact that we’ve filmed, because that’s obviously how it makes sense, because that’s just how it actually happened.”
Keeping Up With the Kardashians is real after all. Yay?
