Kim Kardashian speaks out about Caitlyn Jenner's 'hurtful' book: 'My heart breaks for my mom'

Kim Kardashian West has had enough! The 36-year-old reality star visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday where she opened up on a variety of sensitive topics, including her traumatic Paris robbery and her former stepparent, Caitlyn Jenner.

Kim didn't shy away from the subject of Jenner's tell-all book, The Secrets of My Life, in which the former Olympian has publicly bashed her ex-wife and Kim's mom, Kris Jenner.

#Ad #DYK 4 million babies are born each year in the US. That means a lot of my US followers are mommies2B who could have morning sickness like I did! I want to share what helped me: Diclegis® (doxylamine succinate/pyridoxine HCl), the only FDA-approved medication for morning sickness when diet & lifestyle changes fail. My doctor assured me that it’s safe & effective for mom & baby. It’s also easy to recognize - it has the cutest pregnant lady on it! #DontSufferinSilence you’re not alone! If you have morning sickness, ask your healthcare provider if #Diclegis is right for you. The most common side effect of Diclegis is drowsiness. Diclegis.com US Residents Only Diclegis is a prescription medicine used to treat nausea & vomiting of pregnancy in women who haven’t improved with change in diet or other non-medicine treatments.

You should also not take Diclegis in combination with medicines called monoamine oxidase inhibitors, as these medicines can intensify & prolong the adverse CNS effects of Diclegis. Don’t drive, operate heavy machinery or other activities that need your full attention unless your healthcare provider says that you may do so. Don’t drink alcohol or take other central nervous system depressants such as cough & cold medicines, certain pain medicines & medicines that help you sleep while you take Diclegis. Severe drowsiness can happen or become worse causing falls or accidents. It is not known if Diclegis is safe & effective in children under 18 years of age. Keep Diclegis & all medicines out of the reach of children. Tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you’re breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. Diclegis can pass into your breast milk & may harm your baby. You shouldn’t breastfeed while using Diclegis. Additional safety information can be found at DiclegisImportantSafetyinfo.com.

She went on to call Caitlyn out, noting, "She's promoting this book and she's saying all these things. And I just don't think it's necessary. I just feel like it's unfair, things aren't truthful."

"Caitlyn's not being honest?" Ellen asked.

"No, not with certain things about my mom or other things. I feel like it's taken her a really long time to be honest with herself, so I don't expect her to be honest about my mom now," Kim said. "But it's just so hurtful. I wish her all the success in the world, but not at our expense."


The topic of Caitlyn's memoir has been widely discussed on the family's reality series, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, with Kris breaking down about it in a recent episode.

"I think my mom's been so respectful for so long and always wanting Caitlyn around and always wanting to have a great relationship with Caitlyn," Kim told DeGeneres.

There is nothing more freeing than being true to yourself #SecretsOfMyLife

A post shared by Caitlyn Jenner (@caitlynjenner) on

The 36-year-old reality star admitted that she hasn't spoken to Caitlyn in several weeks.

"I'll always love her. That was my stepdad for so many years. She taught me about character and so much growing up, and I just feel like I don't respect the character that she's showing now," Kim explained. "But I'll always have a major love for her, for who she was in my life."

The mother of two concluded by saying, "I just feel like there's no need for a book. Tell your story, but just don't bash other people."

WATCH: Caitlyn Jenner Reveals Kris Decorated Her Malibu Home After Split: 'I Give Her a Lot of Credit'

Caitlyn's new book has caused a lot of friction in the Kardashian-Jenner family. In the memoir, the former Olympian claims that she told Kris early on about her gender identity struggles.

"This will always be a subject of dispute between us," Caitlyn, 67, writes. "She insists that she was taken by surprise by my ultimate transition to Caitlyn, which obviously means in her mind that she did not know enough."

Caitlyn appeared on Monday's Good Morning America, and watched Kris' reaction to the memoir for the first time when co-host Michael Strahan played a clip from Sunday's KUWTK. "It's a reality show. It is drama," she noted. "I'm sorry [Kris] went down that road."
