If you thought 2018 might be the year that Caitlyn Jenner mends fences with Kris Jenner and the Kardashian siblings, then think again. Caitlyn sat down with Piers Morgan this week on Life Stories where she very candidly discussed why she kept her ex-wife and stepchildren out of the loop when it came time for to have her gender reassignment surgery.
The former Olympian was quite candid about her reasoning, sharing with the talk show host: “No, I didn’t tell anybody. It’s none of their business. No, it’s not that big a deal.”
Later, Piers asked Caitlyn if she didn't trust her family to keep her secret. Her response? “Of course not, of course I didn’t trust them.”
Caitlyn later continued, “I’d already been living as Caitlyn for a year and a half, nobody knows anything. I didn’t want them to leak it to the press and there was no reason for them to know about it.”
Caitlyn was more open about her life in her 2017 memoir, The Secrets of My Life, which caused a rift between the former Olympian and Kris' ex and kids. In fact, back in November, Caitlyn revealed that things remained strained, so much so that she shared it had been about a year since she spoke to Kim Kardashian. In her interview with Piers Morgan, she shared why she spilled all in her book, but kept her family in the dark: “I had to because I had to be honest. The book is about honesty.”
Caitlyn, however, does appear to remain close to her kids that she had with Kris. She was spotted with Kendall Jenner just this week and has remained quiet about rumors that Kylie Jenner is pregnant.
Caitlyn Jenner has undergone a physical milestone in her transition.
In her new memoir, The Secrets of My Life, the gold medal-winning Olympian–who confirmed her transition from male to female and revealed her new identity as Caitlyn in June 2015–says that she underwent gender reassignment surgery in January 2017, PEOPLE has confirmed.
“The surgery was a success, and I feel not only wonderful but liberated,” she writes in the memoir, according to RadarOnline, calling the decision to undergo the surgery “complex.”
Jenner says she decided to be open about the surgery in order to stop the questions and inquiries about when — or if — she would have it done.
“I am telling you because I believe in candor,” she says. “So all of you can stop staring. You want to know, so now you know. Which is why this is the first time, and the last time, I will ever speak of it.”

“I just want to have all the right parts. I am also tired of tucking the damn thing in all the time.”
“Gender confirmation surgery is something I think anybody in my position, or the girls’ position, of course you look into,” Jenner previously said of undergoing the surgery on a 2016 episode of I Am Cait. “For me, I have no idea what the future holds.”
In October 2016, Jenner legally changed her name to Caitlyn Marie and her gender to female.
The Secrets of My Life is available April 25.
