Caitlyn Jenner’s mother, Esther Jenner, is not a fan of the Kardashian family’s new TV series.
“The Kardashians,” which launched on Hulu this year, continues the family’s reality TV journey, but Caitlyn is not on this show.
“I think that Kardashian show is the most pointless thing I’ve ever seen,” Esther Jenner told the… American sun on Monday. “But my two granddaughters, Kendall and Kylie, made it and I love them dearly.”

Esther, 96, added: “They are my blood. And my four step-grandchildren – Kim, Kourtney, Khloé and Robert – feel like they are mine too.”
Although it was rumored that Caitlyn was upset that she was banned from the new show, Esther has her doubts. “I do not know if [Caitlyn] even cares,” she said. “It’s something we haven’t even talked about yet.” Esther believes her daughter is currently more focused on her political career than any other reality TV appearance. Caitlyn recently ran in a special recall election to impeach California Governor Gavin Newsom, but only got about 1% of the vote.
“I think Caitlyn puts [her] life at stake,” Esther said of her daughter’s aspirations to be elected. “I fear” [her]† Although Esther described Caitlyn as “a very strong person” with “a lot of courage”, she said she wants her daughter to “get a concealed license” to “carry a gun”.
“We’re very close,” Esther said of her relationship with Caitlyn. “We probably talk three or four times a week. I have to live with whatever decisions [she] creates and supports [her] in whatever [she] chooses to do. I can’t control it.”

Returning to the topic of Caitlyn’s safety, Esther added, “But I think… [she] would put [herself] in a dangerous position [if she runs for office again], so I’m not so sure.” Caitlyn reportedly wants to run for elected office again in the future.
A spokesperson for Caitlyn has since responded to Esther’s comments. “Caitlyn’s 96-year-old mother is senile,” the rep told page six† “She lives alone in a house. Caitlyn has armed security 24/7 at all times and is not afraid for her safety. Any comments regarding Kardashian and Jenner’s children are that woman’s opinion and were hurtful to Caitlyn to read about in the press.”
