Despite having had a starring role in the program as Bruce Jenner and, after her gender transition, as Caitlyn, the 70-year-old former athlete told Australia’s The Morning Show that she “heard it on the news”.
“Nobody called me, I heard it through the media,” she added. However, she insisted that she “wasn’t surprised”.
“But that show, it’s probably the greatest reality show in history. There are over 500 episodes over 14 years,” she continued. “The girls and Kris have done just an amazing job with the show and keeping it going for this long. But everybody is in a different place now and I think it’s time to move on. But what a run.”
Refusing to address the reports that Kim Kardashian’s husband Kanye West’s very public mental health struggles were part of the reason for the cancellation, Caitlyn insisted that “nothing lasts forever” and that her relatives – including daughters Kendall and Kylie Jenner – were moving on to focus on new ventures.
“I just am so proud of the kids for doing such a great job over the years… I don’t know the inner workings of all the family, but I know all of the kids have moved on into their own areas,” she smiled.
Meanwhile, Ryan Seacrest, who produces Keeping Up With the Kardashians, has addressed whether or not there will be spin-offs of the reality series in the future.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, he said: “I don’t know the answer to that. We have not crossed that bridge yet.
“I do know that the family is so grateful for having the opportunity at E! and having people ride along with them through relationships, and pregnancies, and separations, and breakups,” he continued.
“I mean it’s pretty cool to see that they have been so vulnerable and open and people have ridden along,”
