On the season 14 premiere of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," the Jenners and Kardashians have opened up about their frustration with Caitlyn Jenner after the release of her explosive memoir.

The episode didn't contain information about the recent announcement of Kylie Jenner's pregnancy, or about the child Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West are reported to be expecting via surrogate, but the family did talk about the conflict surrounding Kris Jenner's ex, Caitlyn, according to the Daily Beast.

Part of the episode focuses on the fallout from Kendall Jenner's now infamous Pepsi ad, in which the reality star appeared in a staged demonstration before diffusing tensions by offering Pepsi to riot police. Kendall was widely criticized for the ad, which was seen by many as being in poor taste.

"Kendall tries really hard to be socially conscious," explained Khloe Kardashian. "It sucks because Kendall's been taking all the blame for it."

"I trusted everyone, I trusted the teams, but after I saw the reaction and I read what people had to say about it I most definitely saw what went wrong," said Kendall. "I just feel really, really bad... I feel really bad that this was taken such a wrong way and I genuinely feel like shit. I have no idea how I'm going to bounce back from it."

In a phone conversation, Kendall and Kim discuss their concern that Caitlyn may say the wrong thing about the Pepsi ad during her book tour. Kendall said Caitlyn had promised to dismiss the questions and keep her answer brief, she lamented, "To her brief is not so brief... She just tends to say a lot and I would rather everyone just not say anything."

Kim then calls Caitlyn to tell her what to say if she is asked about the Pepsi ad. Caitlyn later ends up bringing up the ad in an interview, saying Kendall had read the script beforehand.

"She wouldn't know if I had known at all," Kendall says.

The family is also upset to learn that Caitlyn has undergone gender confirmation surgery without telling them.

"Why couldn't she say that to us?" says Kim. During a video chat, Kris sobs and says that she feels like she's always the last to learn about news.

The episode also touches on drama surrounding Caitlyn's memoir.

"It says in Caitlyn’s book Robert Kardashian knew O.J. Simpson was guilty but joined the defense team to get back at his remarried ex," says Kim. "Robert told Caitlyn in secret after the O.J. murder trial that he believed his friend was guilty."

According to Kim, Caitlyn gave her a copy of the book before its publication, but that version excluded parts.

"It is so shady that Caitlyn came over and gave me the book and then on the phone she said ‘well the final version has a few more things in it, but don’t worry, it’s nothing about you,'" says an upset Kim. "So she lied to me, because that is about me if it's about our dad."

The memoir, "The Secrets of My Life," has been a sore point for the Kardashian-Jenner family since its publication, according to People magazine.

"She has her thoughts and you have your thoughts and that's fine, but I do feel like there's a way to tell your side of the story without being so negative," said Kim during a discussion of the book with Kris. "Like, everything is always your fault."

In the book, Caitlyn reportedly wrote that Kris had been "hoarding" money.

"She never paid a bill from 1972," Kris countered. "She didn't know how much a gardener was, and in the book writes, 'Well, Kris didn't need me anymore. All the checks for "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," they all went to Kris.'"

"Went to Kris?!" Kris fumed. "How about it went to the mortgage, and the insurance and education?"

"She just literally started three families with three different people and f**ked everyone over," said Kim.

"One hundred percent," Kris replied. "But [she] can't handle that negative publicity, so I'm going to be the scapegoat. She's going to throw me under the bus."
