'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' Overrated, Says Caitlyn Jenner's Mom
Caitlyn Jenner's mother never approved anything about the Kardashians, so much so that she never even dared to lay her eyes on their hit series "Keeping Up with The Kardashians."
"KUWTK" debuted in 2007 and introduced the family of Kris Kardashian and Caitlyn Jenner. The family, who also served as its cast, included their two daughters Kendall and Kylie Jenner. They also added Kim, Kourtney, Khloé, and Robert Kardashian Jr. -- children of Kris and renowned attorney Robert Kardashian.
In an exclusive interview with Mail Online, Esther Jenner expressed her opinion about the 17-season old TV series, which seemed to be an unappetizing and futile program for her.
"I wasn't fond of that program. There was no plot, and why it was such a hit I'll never know, and I guess it still is," she stated in the interview.
Despite her disapproval towards the show, Esther shared about the "good but slow-moving" relationship between the Kardashians and the 70-year-old former Olympic gold medalist.
Esther also revealed her discountenance towards "controlling monster" Kris, who made Caitlyn looked like "a milk-toast man." She meant that the momager turned her "daughter" (then-Bruce) into an unassertive and spineless person. Kris' treatments towards Caitlyn also became an addition why she would never spare her time to watch KUWTK.
Caitlyn Not a Celebrity In Esther's Eyes
ITV's new series "I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here" added Esther's daughter Caitlyn in the lineup, alongside Nadine Coyle, Adele Roberts, Ian Wright, Kate Garaway, Andrew Whyment, Andrew Maxwell, James Haskell, Myles Stephenson and Roman Kamp.
Seeing her daughter trying to overcome the dreaded "Bushtucker Trials" and lead all the celebrities looked like a "torture" to her. Esther also thought that Caitlyn should spend her time playing golf instead of joining the series.
The Jenner matriarch refused to watch the ITV series, though, and compared it to the U.S "Survivor" show (which she also never watched since she really "does not care about that").
Caitlyn's mom, however, thinks the vieweres will love her daughter.
On the other hand, talking about how it made her feel to see her child became world-famous, the Olympian's mom said that Caitlyn is not a celebrity to her.
Instead, Esther sees her as a kid and it is always difficult on her part to see her getting compromised.
