Kim Kardashian Recalls the Moment On Alec Baldwin’s Talkshow
While appearing on the new Alec Baldwin’s talk show on ABC, Kim Kardashian recalled the moment. To be particular, it was when she saw her step-father dressed as a woman. At that time, Caitlyn Jenner was still married to her mother Kris Jenner. She said that when she discovered it, she was only 25 years old. Kris Jenner was out of town when Kim happened to walk in on Caitlyn all dressed up as a woman. She remembers rushing back in to pack a bag and call Kourtney that she would be living with her for a few days. Kim Kardashian continued to express how she cried hysterically. And when asked if she had seen Caitlyn Jenner cheating, Kim answered that she did not know what she saw.
Kim Kardashian shared that Caitlyn Jenner asked her to not tell anybody about this incident. Apparently, from what Kim remembers, Caitlyn said that,
One day I’ll sit down and I’ll explain this all to you, but until then, please don’t tell a soul and please don’t tell your mother. She’ll kill me.
Kim Kardashian did as she was told. And decided that she did not want to break her mother’s marriage or ensure that her little sisters did not have their dad around. So, she did not utter a word and kept her mouth shut through it.
How the Family Dealt With it
When asked if Kris Jenner knew the identity status of her husband, Kim said that the couple probably avoided discussing it. She said that her mother was so in love with Caitlyn Jenner that she did not think anything would be an issue in their relationship. But probably, she never in a billion years imagined that her husband would transition into a woman.
Kim Kardashian says that she loved sharing their story on the show because they wanted people to understand that it is okay to have every different emotion. At the end of the day, the Kardashians want Caitlyn Jenner to be herself and to be happy.
After the transition, Caitlyn has not been connected with the family much. However, she maintains relationships with her biological daughters Kendall and Kylie. According to sources, Kris and Caitlyn still interact for the sake of their kids. But things are definitely not great between them.
