Caitlyn Jenner Calls Her Relationship With Kim Kardashian West 'Unfortunate'

Julie Sprankles is a freelance writer living in the storied city of Charleston, SC. When she isn't slinging sass for SheKnows, she enjoys watching campy SyFy creature features (Pirahnaconda, anyone?), trolling the internet for dance work...

The feud between these reality TV family members is still on

It's been nearly five months since Caitlyn Jenner's biography, Secrets of My Life, hit shelves — and just as long if not longer since the I Am Cait star has had meaningful contact with several members of her family. In a revealing interview with Good Morning Britain on Monday, Jenner specifically called losing contact with stepdaughter Kim Kardashian West "a big loss."

The former Olympian revealed during her appearance that she essentially hasn't spoken to either former wife Kris Jenner or Kardashian West in months, pointing to the release of her biography as the catalyst for the rift.

"I went overboard to be nice, to be friendly, to be open, but also tell my story and my side of the story," Caitlyn said. "Since the book came out, I've never talked to Kris again. Kim, I haven't talked to in six, nine months, whatever it is."

Following the debut of Secrets in April, Kris claimed during an episode of the family reality series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, that Caitlyn's stories were fabricated — calling them "all made up."

Kardashian West seemed to back her mother's sentiments during an appearance on The View in June, saying, "Maybe their stories are different, maybe their accounts are different, but when all of us were there witnessing some things, and seeing things really different, it was just a little surprising."

Still, while there might be no love lost between the former spouses, Caitlyn clearly still has plenty of it for her stepdaughter.

"I love Kim. She's a great person. I have such respect for her as a mother, as a businessperson, but like Kris, she is very opinionated. But that's OK, I love that about her," Caitlyn told Good Morning Britain.

Caitlyn went on to lament Kardashian West's absence from her life, adding, "It's unfortunate, because actually Kim was the first one I talked to about this issue. She was very straightforward with me. She's been very, very good on it. It's a big loss in my life, not having her there anymore. To me, I mean, that's sad."
