Kendall Jenner, the American model and reality television star, fondly remembered her middle school days when Bruce Jenner, her father, used to coach her to perform well in the track events at her school. According to Time magazine, Kendall Jenner cherished the fond memories when Jimmy Kimmel, the talk show host, complimented her for inheriting her father’s genes after she arrived on the set of his show much faster than his previous guests.
Incidentally, Kendall Jenner and Jimmy Kimmel are neighbors, and the fashion model feels that having the talk-show host as her neighbor makes her feel even more secure in her home. Recently, the model bought a mansion in Hollywood Hills and Kris Jenner, her mother, had expressed some concern over her daughter’s decision to move into her new mansion. According to Us Magazine, Kendall Jenner spoke about how she allayed her mother’s fears by confirming the safety of her neighborhood.
“It’s OK because Jimmy Kimmel lives right across the street. I don’t know him but, like, maybe if anything goes down he’ll save my life.”

While on the show, Kendall Jenner admitted that even though she does not share father’s love for sports, she has still managed to develop a competitive spirit due to his coaching.
Previously, Caitlyn Jenner, the former decathlete and Olympics gold medalist, had shocked his family by assuming that name in place of her former name, Bruce Jenner, after revealing that she identified as a transgender woman. Despite Caitlyn’s shocking revelation about her changed identity, Kendall Jenner continues to admire her father due to the key role they played in her upbringing.
For Kendall, Caitlyn will always remain the loving father who taught her to ride her bicycle and who also picked her up after school. Previously, Kendall Jenner had broken down in tears when she recalled her childhood days while filming for an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the reality television program that focuses on the lives of the celebrated Kardashian-Jenner family. Though they come from different fathers, the Kardashian siblings and the Jenner siblings are bonded to each other due to Kris Jenner, the former wife of Robert Kardashian who later married Bruce Jenner.
Despite being half-sisters, Kendall Jenner has bonded well with all the three Kardashian sisters: Kourtney, Kim, and Khloé. They have featured together on the reality television show based on their family for years, and they have also been posting adorable photos that tell the stories of their sisterly love.
Recently, Kendall Jenner made her presence felt at Kanye West’s exhibition at a secret location after Kim, Kanye’s wife, invited her to grace the occasion. According to Perez Hilton, Kendall Jenner was one of the very few people who were invited to the exhibition that was based on Kanye West’s “Famous” music video.

Unfortunately, Kendall Jenner’s excitement about the exhibition turned sour when she learned that she could not book a taxi using the Uber app as her name had been deregistered. Kim Kardashian then took the Uber service to task when she learned that her half-sister’s account had been suspended.
As it turns out, Kim was upset with the inconvenience caused as she had to drive her younger sister all the way to the exhibition. Later, Kim Kardashian posted a Snapchat video to protest against Uber by informing her fans that the taxi service had banned Kendall Jenner from their service without giving due consideration to her supermodel status. According to Us Magazine, the older Kardashian sibling made her public inquiry known to the Uber taxi service by using a golden butterfly Snapchat filter.
“This is not fair… so we just wanna know why was Kendall suspended? She’s literally, like, a model passenger.”

The video also shows an aggrieved Kendall Jenner joining Kim’s protests by airing her displeasure with Uber. Uber quickly took notice of Kim’s message and swung into action. Digital Spy reports that the taxi service commented that the minor issue with Kendall Jenner’s Uber account had been resolved and she was welcome to register with the service again.
