The transgender reality star, 70, opened up her involvement in the infamous OJ Simpson trial involving the murder of Simpson's wife Nicole Brown, calling the trial a "joke".
Caitlyn was married to Kris Jenner at the time, while Kris' ex-husband Robert Kardashian helped to defend Simpson, which eventually led to him being acquitted.
Speaking to her campmates, Caitlyn revealed, "I saw Nicole two days before she was murdered. It was Kris’ best friend, we were right in the middle of it. [Kris'] ex-husband Robert - OJ was the best man at their wedding."
Caitlyn explained that she and Kris always thought OJ was guilty. "It was a bad time for everybody, very difficult," she continued. "We knew what happened and this trial was a joke and when the verdict came down Kris just turned around to me and goes: “We should have listened to Nicole from the beginning, she was right.”"
"That night the verdict came in Kourtney and Kimberly [Kardashian] were in school and obviously they loved their father - and they should - and they’d been following this for a year and a half."
"And when they walked in the door, I think it was Kourtney who said: "Well I told you he didn’t do it."" After this, Caitlyn said she banned the family from mentioning OJ's name in their house again.
When her campmate Jacquline Jossa asked whether Robert knew the truth about the murder, Caitlyn replied, "I mean, there's just no way he didn't know."
Fellow campmate Kate Garraway asked whether Cailtyn liked OJ, the former Olympic athlete shook her head. "No. Too big an ego for me. We went on some vacations together with OJ and Nicole and the kids.
"I liked Nicole and she sure didn’t deserve what she got."
Simpson was eventually acquitted on two counts of murder. However, in 1997, the jury found Simpson responsible for both deaths and the families were awarded damages of $33.5 million.
