Caitlyn Jenner and ex-wife Kris had a tearful, confrontational sit-down recently, and it was all caught on camera for I Am Cait.

Caitlyn and Kris haven't had the smoothest relationship over the years, and once Caitlyn made her very public transition from Bruce Jenner, rumors began to fly around the web that Kris was very unhappy with the way Caitlyn was received, in part because she felt she had been slighted by this person who was garnering such love and support from people all over the world.

Kris tells Caitlyn in a newly released clip that while she's enjoying attention for being "sensitive" in this new life, Bruce was pretty different.

"You're sensitive and amazing to all these new people in your life. But you're not so sensitive and amazing to the family that you left behind," Kris says.

When Kris explained that she feels like she was merely a "distraction" for Bruce while he figured out who he was, Caitlyn got upset and told her not to go there, explaining that she has always loved Kris and their children. However, Caitlyn did say in a recent blog post--which followed her AMA--that one of the reasons she didn't begin her transition earlier was that life got in the way, including getting married.

“I had all of the issues, but I was growing up in a very different time, and I had no information. Meanwhile, I had all of my diversions – sports … this … that … married … family – but after 65 years, here I was right back with the same problems that I had when I was 10 years old, and I had to finally do something about that," Caitlyn Jenner wrote.

Kim and Khloe Kardashian have both had talks with Caitlyn regarding her relationship with their mom and the way their divorce was handled, saying they want to be supportive without hurting Kris.

"We want to support you and be there for you. We don't think that entails you speaking negatively about our mom... let's focus on the actual cause here, and let's not drag our mom through the mud," Khloe said.
