With the premiere this week of The Hill: New Beginnings, viewers are getting the opportunity to be flung back into the mid-2000s, when Kim Kardashian was a rising star and the name “Stormi Jenner” could not even be heard in the most fantastic of dreams. This week, a new blast from the past emerged from The Hills star Spencer Pratt, who said that Kaitlynn Carter, the wife of his longtime friend and co-star Brody Jenner, caused a fallout with Kim Kardashian.
Initially, according to Us Weekly, Jenner and Kardashian were close, with Jenner’s appearance on Keeping Up With the Kardashians causing him to enjoy a meteoric rise in his social media presence. But drama began when Kardashian invited Jenner to her wedding to Kanye West and declined to invite Carter, at the time a new girlfriend for the famously womanizing Jenner.
“He’d only been dating Kaitlynn for a year. Brody dates lots of girls for a year,” Pratt recalled. “Kaitlynn made such a big deal about it that Brody didn’t go to the wedding and publicly made statements about how they didn’t give him a plus one. Kaitlynn for sure thought if they played hard to get, Kim would give in. But no one’s entitled to a plus-one!”
Subsequently, a rift formed between Kardashian and Jenner--though Kardashian herself downplayed rumors of a feud in a 2015 episode of KUWTK. “Everyone else respected [the no-plus-one rule] – it’s not a big deal. We love our stepbrothers. It just seems like they are always talking about this divide,” she said.
Pratt added that Carter seemed to be pursuing Jenner for his fame, explaining, “I’m not going to say she’s a clout chaser, but she had 95 followers before she started dating Brody.”
As for us, we can’t say whether or not Carter really is a “clout chaser,” but it does make us sad that Jenner still feels there’s a rift between the Kardashians and himself--especially over something so trivial.
