House of Kardashian promised to unpack the truth behind America’s most famous family. The Kardashian-Jenners are known for their reality TV shows, Keeping Up With the Kardashians and The Kardashians, in addition to the group’s various beauty companies and wellness brands. The family’s celebrity status has confounded many around the world, and the three-part documentary will dive into this point of view.
The Sky Group’s logline invites viewers to delve into the reality of the mega stars: “No other family defines our time or divides opinion like the Kardashians,” the description reads. “To some, they are admired as a dynasty of powerful women, inspiring girls across the planet. To others, they are untalented and morally bankrupt reality stars, who are damaging women by selling their life as a superficial fairytale.”
Keep reading to see the most shocking revelations from House of Kardashian so far.
‘House of Kardashian’s Biggest Bombshells
In the explosive trailer for House of Kardashian, Kris Jenner’s ex Caitlyn Jenner sits down to unravel her memories from working and living with the momager and her children Kim, Kourtney, Khloé and Rob Kardashian. Caitlyn and Kris share daughters Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
The teaser also features other people discussing various perspectives about the opulent family. One is heard saying, “You’re kind of in one of two camps — ‘I want to talk about them’ or ‘They ruined the world.’” Another claims in the trailer, “The Kardashians have redefined the American dream.”
Apart from Caitlyn’s claims throughout the doc, talent manager David Weintraub also weighed in. David managed Ray J and Scott Disick. Ray J was previously Kim’s boyfriend, whom the docuseries notes was there to “comfort” her following her father’s death.
The doc emphasizes the different perspectives on Kim and Ray J’s infamous sex tape, which Caitlyn noted she had no idea how it happened. However, multiple others in the series claimed the former couple and the Kardashian family used it to their advantage to reach worldwide fame. Almost immediately after the tape was leaked to the public, E! offered the family their own show — Keeping Up With the Kardashians — which, as the doc points out, was a revolution for the Kardashian-Jenners.
What Did Caitlyn Jenner Say About Her Family?
At the beginning of the teaser, Caitlyn rehashes Kim’s infamous sex tape that got leaked in March 2007.
“Kimberly calculated from the beginning, ‘How do I become famous?’” Caitlyn alleged. A longtime friend of the family Joe Francis also weighed in by adding, “The sex tape was a means to an end. It was to create a controversy.”
Before the trailer concludes, Caitlyn is asked what it was like to work with her ex-wife, to which she laughed. Though viewers will have to wait and see what the former Olympic athlete revealed about her family, she explained the reason for her appearance in the documentary.
“I was happy to participate in the interview process to share my side which points to the strength, influence, and prowess my family has in captivating the world’s attention and keeping it over the years,” Caitlyn said, per Sky Studios. “I am incredibly proud of all my children and stepchildren.”
Caitlyn also dropped a huge bombshell in the doc — persuading Kris’ first husband, Robert Kardashian Sr., to divorce the momager.
“She was having a rough time with Robert in the divorce when I came into the picture,” Caitlyn recalled before alleging, “[Robert] was doing everything to kind of make her life miserable. I saw what was going on from the outside and just said, ‘This is ridiculous.’ So, I called Robert up and said, ‘Hey, let’s go to dinner.’ We met on Hamburger Hamlet on Sunset Boulevard, just the two of us in a booth in the back. And I basically said to him, ‘Kris is moving on. Sorry, but she’s moving on.’ I said, ‘I can take over from here. So, let’s just make this final signing of the papers as simple as possible.’ And he did.”
Not only that, but Caitlyn also alleged that Kris was the one “controlling” their finances at the beginning of their marriage. Whenever they would accept a sales partnership, the former couple would earn a percentage of the profits, but Caitlyn claimed that she “never” saw the money again because Kris loved the wealth.
Did the Kardashian-Jenners Participate in ‘House of Kardashian’?
Even though they’re the subject of the docuseries, none of the Kardashian-Jenner family members had any editorial control over the project. Therefore — despite archival footage and resurfaced online photos from the early 2000s — they are not appearing in the project.
House of Kardashian will premiere on Sky Documentaries on October 8.
