Caitlyn Jenner's I am Cait co-star, Jenny Boylan, tried to quit the ratings-challenged reality show after the former Olympic athlete got into a bitter argument with her co-star over her conservative political views.
The heated discussion took place on the season premiere of I am Cait.
Jenner, the lone Republican on a cross-country bus trip filmed for the reality show, defended her party.
“None of the Republicans are ‘I hate trans people’ or ‘I hate gays,’” insisted Jenner, 66. “They do nothing of that. I want a driving economy so every trans person has a job.”
“If our country collapses, it doesn’t make any difference if you’re gay, trans, whatever,” she added.
But Boylan, now an author, teacher and prominent activist in the LGBQT community, told Jenner she was living in a "dream world."
The Columbia professor was so outraged at Jenner that she later revealed in a blog post that she tried to ditch doing the show.
"And so, yeah: hanging out with her was infuriating,” wrote Boylan. “On the second day of filming, I tried to quit the show. I had a lengthy conversation with the show-runner saying, ‘I just can’t do this. I want to go home.’ There is footage of this somewhere.”
“But I stayed in there,” noted Boylan. “In part, because on Survivor, (my favorite show), I always get angry when people ‘quit the game,’ as if they really didn’t understand what they were signing on for when they agreed to spend 39 days boiling rice and eating tarantulas."
But Bolyan wasn’t the only one in Jenner’s crosshairs on the tense journey. She also blasted Hillary Clinton in the episode.
"She could not care less about women,” sniped Jenner. “She cares about herself.”
However, it seems Jenner has bigger battles on her hands now than who should or shouldn’t be president.
The KUWTK spin-off show, I Am Cait, was a ratings success for the first season, bringing in 2.7 million viewers for the 2015 premiere episode, but the March 6, 2016 Season 2 premiere was a shocking flop, attracting just 750,000 viewers.
