Caitlyn Jenner's new memoir reveals Kris Jenner is more manipulative that you ever imagined
It looks like Caitlyn Jenner is ready to put it ALL out there! In her upcoming memoir The Secrets Of My Life – which hits bookshelves April 25 – the reality star reveals everything. Not only does she open up about her journey of coming out as a transgender, but she also spills the beans about how her ex-wife, Kris Jenner really felt about the whole thing and is claiming she "pushed her into the closet."

Leave it to Caitlyn to use her new memoir as an opportunity to throw some major truth bombs regarding what really went down while she was transitioning. She totally outs Kris in this book, which makes me wonder if there's been some bad blood between them.
In the memoir, Caitlyn reveals how Kris "made her suppress her true self," a close source revealed to Us Weekly. Caitlyn (formerly known as retired Olympic player Bruce Jenner) had expressed to Jenner her desire to transition but allegedly "Kris pushed her into the closet," the source added.
What's especially interesting about all this, is that this isn't the first time Caitlyn has mentioned that Kris knew about her transition. In her 2015 exclusive interview with Diane Sawyer, Caitlyn revealed she started transitioning into a woman in the 1980s (when she was still Bruce) right before dating Kris Jenner. She also claimed that she had revealed her struggle with all three of her wives, including Kris. Caitlyn claims that while she was dating Kris, she was honest about starting gender transition and then stopped hormone injections before the couple married.
In the interview with Diane Sawyer, Caitlyn (who was still Bruce at the time) revealed that Kris saw him cross-dressing during their marriage and was pretty low-key about the whole thing. "She didn't say much … OK, you gonna change now?" she said. In her cover story with Vanity Fair back in 2015, Caitlyn revealed how Kris mistreated her during their marriage.
"The first 15 years I felt she needed me more because I was the breadwinner," she said. "Then around the show, when that hit and she was running the whole show and getting credit for it and she had her own money, she didn't need me as much from that standpoint … I think in a lot of ways she became less tolerant of me … A lot of times she wasn't very nice. People would see how I got mistreated. She controlled the money, all that kind of stuff."
It's hard to judge Kris without really knowing her side of the story. I am curious to hear how she responds to this book though. I'm thinking the weeks leading to the book release are going to be full of drama -- especially for Kris!
