Caitlyn Jenner's mother ''doesn't get why the Kardashians' show is a hit

Caitlyn Jenner’s mother, Esther Jenner has said she can’t understand why the iconic Kardashians’ reality show is such a hit. 

In an exclusive interview with MailOnline, the 93-year-old, who previously branded Caitlyn’s ex-wife Kris Jenner hyper-controlling, said she made her daughter, (then Bruce), look unassertive and spineless.’ 

Esther admits she still can't watch Keeping Up With The Kardashians, declaring: ‘She [Kris] made him look like a milk-toast man! [meaning unassertive and spineless].

Esther Jenner has always said that Kris was 'hyper-controlling' of her daughter and treated her like the 'milk-toast man' (asserting that she often forgets to use the right pronoun)

‘I wasn't fond of that programme, there was no plot, and why it was such a hit I'll never know, and I guess it still is.

Now she says the Kardashians' relationship with Caitlyn ‘is good but slow moving’, though tensions with matriarch Kris, 64, still remain. 

Esther is supportive of Caitlyn's transition and hopes campmates understand her transition and respect her, saying: ‘It's nothing she asked for, it's a condition and it starts in the mother's womb.’

She still struggles to use the correct pronouns for her daughter but feels she has what it takes to win. 

She explains: ‘The thing I know about Caitlyn, and I know her well, is that she has a lot of determination. How do you think she ever won that gold medal in decathlon?’ 

‘When your child becomes, oh golly, world famous, it's very difficult for a mother to put them in that category, he's not a celebrity to me, he's my kid. It's just very difficult, but I'm no different than any other mother, I love my kids.’

Esther said the hardest thing about Caitlyn being on I’m A Celebrity is that she will miss talking to her every day on the phone.

Caitlyn’s mother has branded I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! ‘torture’ to watch and thinks the reality star should stick to spending her time on the golf course, MailOnline can exclusively reveal.

She will not be watching the ITV series as Caitlyn joins her campmates Down Under, but thinks viewers will love her and is confident she will be a success on the star-packed reality show.

In a world exclusive interview, Esther blasted: ‘We have a Survivor [show] here in the United States, I never watched it, I've skimmed over it, or seen previews and I decided that I don't really care for that.

‘That's not entertainment to me, to see somebody frightened. I think she could spend a lot more pleasant times on the golf course!

‘I've tried not to think of Caitlyn being over there [in Australia]. It's three weeks… a long time to go without hearing from her.

‘When she's in the States she calls me almost every day, so I've got to live without hearing her.’

Speaking from her home in Lewiston, Idaho, Esther says she's heard of how mentally challenging the show can be, saying: ‘It's like a competition, I guess, and there are not very many people that get through it. I don't want to be thinking about that at 1 o'clock in the morning, I cannot sleep.

Fears! 'I have no idea [why she's doing this]. I don't ask her questions to get into her mind or how she feels about this or that. My big worry is [she may] get bitten by a snake or a poisonous insect. I'm afraid of snakes anyway, even if they're not poisonous,' Esther said

‘She had to tell me she was going on this show, and I said, “I never liked the show here in the United States and I didn't watch it!”‘

When the subject turned to the terrifying Bushtucker Trials, including eating cockroaches and being trapped in confined spaces with creepy crawlies, Esther said: ‘I don't what you to say anything that's going to frighten me or upset me, I'm better off not to know.

‘We can't see it here in the United States. I don't need to torture myself, if it's frightening, I don't want to know.

‘I'll just my waiting for when she can call me again when it's over. I'm sure I'll hear about it on the news.’

Having previously competed in the short-lived US version of I'm a Celeb in 2003, Caitlyn's mum says she enjoys the escape from the fast-paced celebrity lifestyle in LA and a break from the Kardashian generation of social-media obsession.

‘She was on one survivor program here in the United States, I never watched it, I didn't even know he [she] was going to be on it, and I didn’t care for the format,’ she said.

‘[But] Caitlyn said you have time to reflect, you have time to look inside your mind, figure things out, he said there are a lot of benefits to that exercise, it's one heck of an exercise!

‘I know it's very popular in England and Australia, I don't know maybe people like to see other people uncomfortable or frightened or whatever, I don't like that. I like to see people peaceful, happy.’

Esther, who grew up on a small farm where her family had three cows, a flock of chickens, and grew their own vegetables, is pleased Caitlyn will have to learn to cook from scratch in the jungle while living on rations.

‘Maybe she'll learn something, that's good for her, I approve!’ she laughed. ‘They love her in Great Britain, she's loved everywhere. I'll [just] be glad to get her phone call when she's finished.’

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! airs nightly on ITV at 9PM.
