Piers Morgan was forced to defend himself during a Life Stories interview with Caitlyn Jenner recently, after making a quip about her gender reassignment surgery.

Caitlyn has been caught up in a feud with his ex wife and stepdaughters Kourtney, 38, Kim, 37, and Khloe, 33, since splitting with Kris an undergoing gender
