It sounds like Caitlyn Jenner’s solo foray into reality TV away from the Kardashians didn’t go quite as well as she hoped. The premiere of ‘I Am Cait’ reportedly only scored about 2.7 million viewers, which is far below the 4.2 million views that ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians – About Bruce’ special got.
Caitlyn reportedly doesn’t like “losing” to her ex, Kris Jenner. An insider claims:
Caitlyn is unhappy with the numbers, and hates losing to Kris Jenner, and the rest of the Kardashian family. There has been tremendous pressure on Caitlyn, and she feels that she has let the transgender community down.”
It sounds like Caitlyn is upset with E! while E! is upset with her.
Caitlyn isn’t happy with how E! has been promoting the show, relying on clips from I Am Cait. E! is also frustrated with Caitlyn because she hasn’t done any press to promote the show. This was supposed to be a ratings blockbuster for E! and a lot of money has been invested in it.”
It looks like Caitlyn really might have to move on beyond reality TV.
A family source said:
Caitlyn’s kids feel that there is just a lot of fatigue on behalf of the public, and she should have waited until later this year to do a reality show. Live as a woman and deal with the legal consequences of the fatal car crash. Caitlyn didn’t want to listen to her kids’ advice, and this is why some of them, including Bart and Brody won’t participate in the show.”
Something tells me Caitlyn might be suffering a bit from over-exposure, although I’m a bit surprised the ratings weren’t higher. Then again, who’s watching TV in the summer? The season might be working against her. I do think it’s tough for a single person to carry a reality TV show, given all the pressure to be over-the-top outrageous. The Kardashians are a sizable clan! Did you watch ‘I Am Cait’? Are you interested in watching it?
