CAITLYN Jenner revealed her family never told her Keeping Up With The Kardashians was ending – and instead found out about their decision on the news.
The 70-year-old made the revelation today on Australia’s The Morning Show and admitted she wasn’t surprised that her family didn’t give her the heads-up.
She laughed: “I heard it on the news! Nobody called me, I heard it through the media.
“Was I surprised? No.”
Caitlyn went on to praise her ex-wife Kris Jenner and their family for putting on what she branded “the greatest reality show in history” over the past 14 years.
The reality TV star continued: “But that show, it’s probably the greatest reality show in history. There are over 500 episodes over 14 years.
“The girls and Kris have have done just an amazing job with the show and keeping it going for this long.
“But everybody is in a different place now and I think it’s time to move on. But what a run.”
Caitlyn then went on to praise her step children Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob Kardashian, as well as her own children with Jenner; Kendall and Kylie, on what they have achieved.
“I wasn’t surprised but I just am so proud of the kids for doing such a great job over the years,” she said sincerely.
“I don’t know the inner workings of all the family, but I know all of the kids have moved on into their own areas.”
Caitlyn appeared on Keeping Up with the Kardashians from its debut in 2007 until her divorce from Kris Jenner in 2015 – and subsequent gender transition in spin-off series I Am Cait.
At the beginning, Caitlyn – then Bruce – was the celebrity draw having won gold in the decathlon at the 1976 Montreal Olympics.
However, the former athlete took a considerable backseat to the Kardashian-Jenner siblings as the show grew in popularity.
Earlier this week, the Kardashian clan shocked their fans when they announced that their family show was coming to end in 2021.
Kim shared on her social media: “After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes and numerous spin-off shows, we are beyond grateful to all of you who’ve watched us for all of these years – through the good times, the bad times, the happiness, the tears, and the many relationships and children.
“We’ll forever cherish the wonderful memories and countless people we’ve met along the way.
“Thank you to the thousands of individuals and businesses that have been a part of this experience and, most importantly, a very special thank you to Ryan Seacrest for believing in us, E! for being our partner, and our production team at Bunim/Murray, who’ve spent countless hours documenting our lives.
“Our last season will air early next year in 2021.”
She added: “Without Keeping Up with The Kardashians, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I am so incredibly grateful to everyone who has watched and supported me and my family these past 14 incredible years.
“This show made us who we are and I will be forever in debt to everyone who played a role in shaping our careers and changing our lives forever.”
One of the longest-running reality TV series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs on the E! cable network.
The series debuted on October 14, 2007 and focused on the personal and professional lives of the Kardashian–Jenner blended family, led by matriarch Kris Jenner.
Over 14 years, fans have seen the family go through heartbreak and tragedy, fall in and out of love, and stick together through it all as a family.
Kim’s marriages to Kris Humphries and later Kanye West were both aired, as well as the births of her four children.
Fans saw Kourtney and Scott Disick welcome three children, as well as enjoy an off-and-on romance before ending it for good several years ago.
Kendall and Kylie were both pre-teens when the show first aired, and viewers have watched Kendall become a hugely successful runway model and Kylie become a millionaire businesswoman.
Khloe’s decision to divorce Lamar Odom and his subsequent overdose in a Nevada brothel all aired, along with her romance with Tristan Thompson and his cheating scandals.
Younger brother Rob appeared in the early seasons, but stepped back in later seasons, as he battled health problems.
The decision by Caitlyn Jenner to come out as a transgender woman also appeared on screen.
