“They’re so busy making themselves a success with their own show and they don’t have time for their own child. I don’t care if they are on Hulu. I don’t care if they are on “Kardashian” or not.”
Esther Jenner passed away yesterday as always in life was all about support and support systems. She was a present figure in my life and I loved her so much. She was also open about her transition and I knew that she would support her daughter even if the two didn’t agree with each other.
Caitlyn Jenner’s mother, Esther Jenner, has died. She was 96. Caitlyn announced the tragic news in an Instagram post featuring a picture of herself with Esther. “I am heartbroken to announce my mom passed away yesterday morning, peacefully,” she captioned. “Losing a mother is unique in the sense that she is the only person that loved me my entire life. I will miss her tremendously.” Though she led a more private life than her daughter, Esther was a present figure in Caitlyn’s life, appearing alongside her in her 2015 reality show “I Am Cait” and 2021’s five-part docuseries, “Untold: Caitlyn Jenner.”
Apart from appearing on her daughter’s shows, Esther was also openly supportive of Caitlyn following her 2015 transition. While the older Jenner admitted it would take some getting used to, she maintained her decision to support her daughter. “Think about it. It’s a difficult thing when it’s habit. But I will accomplish this,” she said in an interview with New York Daily News. “I love him dearly. It doesn’t matter whether he dresses like a male or a female. Whatever he needs to make him happy that’s all I care about.” Esther also proved herself to always be on Caitlyn’s side, going as far as bashing the Kardashians for excluding the Olympic medalist from their Hulu show. “I think that Kardashian show is the most senseless thing I have ever watched,” she said to The U.S. Sun in 2022.
