The former Olympian shares that the tension between her and the comedian starts when she appeared as a guest on the TV show host’s talk show back in 2015.
AceShowbiz -It’s no secret that Caitlyn Jenner is feuding with Ellen DeGeneres. It’s apparently so bad that the former Olympian once planned to ask her Kardashian family to stop going on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show“.
Caitlyn made the revelation in a deleted scene from “Big Brother VIP Australia”. “I thought, ‘Maybe I should call [Kris Jenner] and say, ‘Kris, why don’t you just ban any of the kids being on “Ellen”,” the 72-year-old said. However, she shared that she decided not to do it.
Further elaborating it, the former “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star added, “I thought, ‘I don’t want to get involved in that. Let them do their thing.’ “
Later, Caitlyn shared to her housemates that the tension between her and Ellen started when she appeared as a guest on the TV show host’s talk show back in 2015. The trans star said that she initially wanted to go on the talk show to help raise funds for a trans student who was an Ellen super-fan and needed money for nursing school. However, she was asked about her controversial views on gay marriage instead.
“[Ellen] says to me, ‘The only way I’ll do it is if you’re on the show, too,’ ” Caitlyn claimed, adding that she eventually agreed to go on the show. “Like everybody, I think everybody has had a progression on gay marriage. You know, 30, 40 years ago, I didn’t know the subject. Times change.”
To Ellen’s question, Caitlyn replied, “Looking back on it, I could have handled a couple of things a bit differently.” She added that she had always been a “traditionalist” and that “if that word ‘marriage’ is really, really that important to you, then I can go with it.” What hurt Caitlyn was that Ellen said to Howard Stern later in an interview that Caitlyn “still has a judgment about gay marriage.”
Caitlyn claimed that Ellen never apologized to her. She added that the comedian continued to kept inviting her daughter Kylie Jenner and other family members on her show because “my family gives her good ratings.”
