Kim Kardashian blames 'I'm A Celebrity' showrunners for family's lack of support for Caitlyn Jenner: 'They never reached out'
Usually, when a contestant is eliminated on the show, they are greeted by their loved ones. However, nothing like that happened with Caitlyn
Now that Caitlyn Jenner is out of the British reality show 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here', Kim Kardashian is finally responding to speculations over the fact that no one from the Kardashian-Jenner clan showed their support for the 70-year-old former 'KUWTK' member while she was a participant on the show.
Usually, when a contestant is eliminated on the show, they are usually greeted by their loved ones. However, nothing like that happened with Caitlyn when she exited the jungle on Saturday, December 7 all alone. She then flew home with her close friend and business partner Sophia Hutchins.
Brandon Jenner, Caitlyn’s son from her ex-wife Linda Thompson has previously told a fan on Instagram that the British showrunners did not contact him to rally behind his parent at the time she competed on the show.
“Honestly, nobody reached out to set it up,” Brandon said. “I think it might have been a ‘storyline’ the producers wanted to fabricate in order to get more empathy for Caitlyn. That’s how that kind of TV works.”
On Tuesday, Kim took to Twitter to retweet a news report which quoted Brandon's comments, and also agreed with her stepbrother. "Exactly what Brandon said!!!! NO ONE from I’m A Celeb even reached out and asked for letters, appearances or anything from any Kardashians or Jenners," she captioned the tweet.
However, it was not to say that Caitlyn did not enjoy a warm welcome from two of her biological kids when she came home.
Her house was decorated with balloons and the words "Welcome Home" floated in the air. “Thank you my baby’s @kendalljenner @kyliejenner,” Caitlyn wrote on Instagram as she tweeted a picture of the decorations.
The time that Caitlyn spent in the jungle was quite emotional for her. She broke down on the day of her elimination and said: “I came here to kind of test myself because I did the show 16 years ago. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy. The first night I didn’t think I’d make it to the next night,” she said, according to People magazine. “I can’t believe I made it all the way to three weeks.”
