Caitlyn Jenner sat down for an interview Wednesday in New York City with Andy Cohen and gave more details about several aspects of her new book, The Secrets of My Life, including how she saw herself as “a punching bag,” her current relationships with the Kardashians, including ex-wife Kris Jenner,” and her lack of control over her own finances while the couple was still together.

1. Jenner claims she didn’t have control of her finances while filming KUWTK.

Jenner, 67, told Cohen she didn’t have much of a say in her personal finances when she was married to Kris.

“ was in charge of everything,” Jenner said. “And that bothers you after a long, long period of time. Obviously, I was doing very well financially, personally, through the show and other things I was doing.”

Despite being wealthy and living comfortably, Jenner adds that she never saw the money that she made from her time on the E! reality series.

“It kind of all went into the house,” she said. “Once we went through the divorce, I obviously had a paycheck that I kept.”

Jenner told PEOPLE in an interview that their split was mutual, adding that Kris helped her find her current house in Malibu.

“She literally decorated the house in one day,” Jenner said. “She wanted me to be comfortable. So it was mutual. Our divorce, our entire agreement, we did it in one day. Literally. And there was no arguing, nothing.”

2. She saw herself as a “punching bag.”

The Olympic gold medalist felt she was the one who took a lot of the hits in the family.

“I was ,” she said. “I was always with very strong women, and obviously, Kris is the strongest I was with.”

When Cohen asked if she ever played into that role, Caitlyn said, “No, I didn’t. It used to bother me because a lot of people would do stuff online, saying, ‘Why don’t you stand up to her?'”

“Did you ever?” Cohen asked.

“Well…,” Jenner teased as the audience laughed lightly. “No, of course I did.”

3. Caitlyn says she “felt sorry” for Kendall after the Pepsi commercial aired.

“I saw it… and I thought, ‘That is so cool.’ It was cute,” Jenner said. “I didn’t see all the other things that I guess, obviously, some other people saw.”

“She’s a model,” Jenner continued. “I felt sorry for Kendall.”

Jenner also reveals that she did not give Kendall or Kylie advanced copies of her book, opting to give them copies once it came out.

“Before I left, I threw it on Kylie’s bed, and Kendall, I got it to her the day before I left for this ,” she said.

4. Caitlyn believed O.J. Simpson was guilty of murder.

“I know he did it,” she said. “It was three people at the crime scene… pick a murderer. How hard is that?”

When it came to Robert Kardashian defending Simpson, Jenner said she “felt sorry” for him, saying “he was destroyed by everybody.”

“Robert just said to me, ‘I would have been OK if they got him in the first trial.’ That’s the only thing he ever said,” Jenner recalled.

“Robert, in the first trial, he was now the guy that helped get away with murder and he was destroyed by everybody,” she added. “I felt terribly sorry for him.”

5. She said she pushed Robert Kardashian to finalize his divorce to Kris.

Before marrying Kris, Caitlyn had one thing to take care of, and it was the former’s divorce from Robert, which still hadn’t been finalized.

“She had been in the divorce for two years,” Jenner said. “I basically took Robert out to dinner and said, ‘Hey, look, Kris is moving on, so we got to get this thing wrapped up because Kris and I are moving on. It’s the best thing for the kids.'”

Since her book came out, Jenner said Kris called her to say she never wanted to talk to her again.

“I said, ‘OK,'” Jenner said. “That’s fine, I move on. Is it sad? Of course it is. But I have no problem with Kris. If that’s the way she feels, that’s the way she feels. My book is honest and it’s my story. I just don’t want her to alienate me from my children.”

Happy birthday, Channing Tatum!

The Magic Mike star turned 37 on Wednesday and was presented with a cool blue birthday cake made by his 3-year-old daughter, Everly.

Actress Jenna Dewan Tatum, his wife, posted a picture of the birthday cake on Instagram with the caption, “Happy birthday daddy.”

The three celebrated the actor’s birthday at a bowling alley, as evidenced by photos Dewan Tatum posted on Snapchat. Unicorn balloons were included at the event, while Tatum and his wife taught their daughter how to bowl.

The couple wed in 2009 and share one daughter together, although the dancer recently revealed that it almost didn’t happen.

The actress stopped by The Ellen Degeneres Show to reveal that her now-husband was a bit more hesitant than her to date.

“He did this whole thing where he didn’t want to be in a relationship, so I was like, ‘Look, if you want to date other people and be free, that’s fine, but we’re not going to hang out and watch movies. You’ve got to figure out what you want, because I know I want to be in a relationship with you,'” Dewan Tatum, 36, told the host.

A few days later, Tatum went out drinking with other dancers from the movie.

“He said he had the chance ‘to be free’ and he couldn’t stop thinking about me,” Dewan Tatum recalled.

The actor, also 36, headed straight to his costar’s hotel room — even though it was 2 a.m. and his “wild tequila night” had him in an interesting outfit.

“I go and open the door — he’s going to kill me for this — and he has underwear, a sombrero, and Ugg boots, and he’s like, ‘Let’s do this.’”

This was an evening for the books.

On Wednesday’s all-new episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, Dorinda Medley and Sonja Morgan hashed it out at Ramona Singer‘s dinner party, which was also attended by fellow costars Luann (de Lesseps) D’Agostino and Carole Radziwill.

Though the evening kicked off without any drama, a platter of tension was served up at the dinner table when frenemies Medley and Morgan sat a seat away from one another.

While the two ladies at first exchanged niceties — “look how beautiful you look,” Morgan said — it quickly took a downward turn when Medley brought up what her fellow RHONY costar had been saying publicly about her, including the day prior.

“Let’s take the elephant out of the room right now,” Medley said with a pointed finger. “Shut your mouth. Stop talking poorly about me.”

In an attempt to defend herself, Morgan shot back: “What’d you think I said?”

“Which thing didn’t you say?” questioned Medley. “Where should we start? You better stop it. … Shut your mouth, because it’s not going to go any further, do you hear me?”

But Morgan wasn’t threatened by her words. “Oh really?” she rhetorically asked Medley.

Still, Medley continued the punches — and took it a step further. “Why don’t you stop getting vaginal rejuvenation and put an easy pass on that vagina … because we all know what your s— goes down in that townhouse. Turn-style and ticket.”

Sitting across from the feuding pair was Tinsley Mortimer, who met Medley for the first time that evening. And while the new acquaintances got along during the limited time that they shared prior to the evening meal, Mortimer revealed in her confessional, “Sonja warned me about this girl, Dorinda, but this is crazy.”

“She has said horrible things about me,” Medley continued. “She’s not going to act all friendly here with me when she’s talked poorly. She’s not going to do it. Should we take up some pictures.”

Although the hostess of the evening expected the duo to at some point hash out their qualms, she didn’t anticipate that it’d be at her gathering.

“I knew Dorinda would have a blowout with Sonja, but I was really hoping she could wait to the end of the dinner party,” said Singer. “Can you wait for dessert at least? Maybe do it a little privately?”

As Medley continued to throw harsh words at her nemesis, Morgan largely remained quiet — but during her confessional, she unloaded her true feelings about the scene: “So embarrassing. This is not how one acts at a dinner party normally.”

The feuding continued, with Medley calling Morgan “a liar and a fraud” as she got up and walked away from the table.

“This is like a kid having a temper tantrum at the birthday part and their parents are like, ‘Okay, that’s enough kids. Everybody get in the pool.’ It’s time for Dorinda to get in the pool,” Medley said.

After returning to the table, Medley continued the name calling — while Bethenny Frankel observed the feuding through the window as she sat in her car waiting for Radziwill — with, “You’re a disgusting, pathetic, delusional fool!”

Although the evening was extremely heated, and packed with she said she said, by episode’s end, the women seemed to patch things up — for now.

“New day, right?” Medley said as she shared an embrace with Morgan when all of the ladies — minus Frankel — got together again.

“I feel like you got to say what you wanted to say and I already said all my s—,” said Morgan.

“It’s all out there,” added Medley. “Onward and upward.”

Upon observing the duo patch up their broken friendship, Mortimer was evidently surprised at how they could reconcile so quickly.

“I have never in my life seen anybody flip out on somebody at the dinner table the way that Dorinda did to Sonja and now everything is fine,” said Mortimer. “Like, nothing ever happened. I mean, I guess this is how they do it.”
