Jenner’s mum made headlines in 2022 when she said that she was not a fan of the reality show The Kardashians, which stars her two granddaughters.

After describing it as ‘the most senseless thing I have ever watched’, she told The Sun US: “But my two granddaughters, Kendall and Kylie, created it, and I love them dearly.

“They’re my blood. And my four step-grandchildren – Kim, Kourtney, Khloé and Robert – feel like they’re mine, too.”

Jenner was not asked to star in The Kardashians.

Following the interview, Jenner’s rep allegedly told Page Six that Esther was not of sound mind.

They reportedly said: “Caitlyn’s 96-year-old mother is senile. She lives alone in a home. Caitlyn has 24/7 armed security at all times and has no fear for her safety.

“All comments related to the Kardashian and Jenner children are that woman’s own opinion and were hurtful for Caitlyn to read about in the press.”
