With a new docu-series coming up to chronicle the transition from Bruce Jenner to Caitlyn Jenner, Cassandra and her brothers also are making it clear that they don’t agree with the decision to have what they see as another reality show.
“I would happily have traded a distant father for a loving, involved mom,” says Cassandra of the past. But while she’s focused on reflecting how the person that she knew growing up treated her, she also agrees with her brother Burt.
“I have high hopes that Caitlyn is a better person than Bruce,” said Burt.
For Brandon, the transition has its uncomfortable moments.
“Whoa, I’m still your son,” said Brandon when he saw Caitlyn pull up her dress to reveal the results of the breast augmentation.Although the Kardashian sisters and Caitlyn's youngest Jenner daughters did not know about the transition, the older children knew at different times.
Cassandra and Burt learned at ages 11 and 13, when their mom told them. Brandon noticed the changes that occurred in his father in the 1980s, while Brody was not informed about the transition until he was 29.Reports say that while Cassandra and her brothers do support Caitlyn's transition, they do not want to be a part of the E! docu-series.
On the other side though, the Kardashian siblings along with Kendall and Kylie will appear on the show. And while the series has not even aired yet, E! is already in talks of renewing.
“The series has an option for a second season and Brody and Brandon are fearful Caitlyn’s show will become a scripted reality show a la Keeping Up With The Kardashians,”
said an insider.
Moreover, the older children are concerned that the docu-series will result in a backlash for Caitlyn, added the source.
“The show hasn’t even aired yet, and E! is ready to sign it up for another season because everyone knows the show is going to be a huge ratings hit. Caitlyn’s children just don’t want her to be mocked or ridiculed because of the show.”
Even though Caitlyn's older children do not want to be a part of his new show, they are excited to start a new life with her.
"My relationship with Caitlyn is much better than with Bruce, but we still have a lot of work to do,"says Caitlyn's daughter, Cassandra Jenner, who's last name is now Marino.
"We didn't talk for years, and now we see each other every couple of weeks and talk on the phone, which I am grateful for."
