Caitlyn: Jenner's children support transition, but 4 refuse to appear on docuseries

The reactions of the Jenner children to Bruce Jenner's transition to Caitlyn have been generally positive, but not all of them are on board with his upcoming docuseries about the big change on E! even though he has begged them several times and the show's producers have begged them.

Of course the Kardashian girls and Kylie and Kendall will be on the show but the children with his previous wife have remained adamant about not wanting to be on the show.

Jenner’s son Brandon Jenner, told Vanity Fair he was proud, but not amused when his Dad revealed his breast implant surgery.

According to Vanity Fair, “Brandon said he was a little taken aback when he saw Caitlyn for the first time after surgery and she pulled her top up to reveal her new breasts," adding Brandon exclaimed: "‘Whoa, I’m still your son.'"

Brandon’s sister Cassandra, who had a rough relationship with their Dad when she was growing up said: “I would happily have traded a distant father for a loving, involved mom.”
Jenner's oldest son Burt Jenner said: "I have high hopes that Caitlyn is a better person than Bruce."

Brandon said that the Jenner children's decision to refrain from participating in the show has to do with their concerns about the production company, Bunim/Murray, and that many of the people working on Jenner's docuseries work on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."

“You go on E!’s Web site, the Bunim/Murray Web site, and you look at all the shows, every one of them is a circus," Brandon said.

Caitlyn however, said the show aims to help people and claims that it's simply another "stupid reality show" couldn't be more wrong.
“I’m not doing it for money. I’m doing it to help my soul and help other people. If I can make a dollar, I certainly am not stupid. I have house payments and all that kind of stuff. I will never make an excuse for something like that. Yeah, this is a business."
Regardless of their disagreement over the series, Cassandra said she feels Jenner's transition had improved their relationship.
“I feel like he’s been the closest to us and the best parent when he’s been moving toward his true identity,” she said.
“I was just nervous that I wouldn’t make her feel comfortable,”. “I was worried I wouldn’t say the right things or act the right way or seem relaxed."
She said they got along better than ever before.
“We talked more than we ever have. We could just be girls together.”
Cassandra was present for the Vanity Fair photoshoot.
