We know the Kardashian-Jenner family isn't afraid to compete with each other for attention — and In Touch can exclusively reveal the latest contest was between Kim Kardashian's butt and Caitlyn Jenner's new book, The Secrets of My Life.
The mother-of-two made headlines when she was photographed in a thong bikini while on a birthday trip for her sister Kourtney, which instantly went viral and made nearly everyone forget that about the former Olympian's tell-all.

“Making herself look bad isn’t the way she’d go about it. I can tell you that she’s not happy that what her butt really looks like is making headlines,” says an insider.
However, the reality star did share her true feelings on the book — which speaks ill of Cait's ex-wife Kris Jenner — during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“My heart breaks for my mom and I just feel like it’s unfair. [Caitlyn’s saying] things [that] aren’t truthful. I feel like it’s taken [Caitlyn] a really long time to be honest with herself, so I don’t expect her to be honest about my mom now,” she said.

"I read it and basically the only nice thing she had to say was that I was great socially at a party one time," she revealed to Kim and Khloé Kardashian. "None of it makes sense. Everything she says is all made up. Why does everything have to be that Kris is such a b--ch and an a--hole?"
However, our insider adds that Kris was "the real winner" in this battle.
"Kim made news all week, and that meant people were not talking about Caitlyn’s book,” says the source.
