The former Olympic athlete, 72, added in a statement, “I am humbled by this unique opportunity to speak directly to FOX News Media’s millions of viewers about a range of issues that are important to the American people."

This new phase of Jenner's career comes after the longtime-Republican threw her hat into the ring for governor of California last year but lost to returning Democratic politician Gavin Newsom.

Despite being part of the trans community, Jenner did not receive much support as many activists felt the former reality star's right leaning views and privileged background did not represent the values of the LGBTQ+ community at large.

"She’s completely detached," said Bamby Salcedo, president of the TransLatin@ Coalition. "All this truly is about her. It’s not about the issues, not about the people."

Jenner's conservative views also got her into a bit of a feud with Ellen DeGeneres — who is very close friends with ex-wife Kris Jenner and the Kardashian family — over her stance on gay marriage.

“She goes to me, ‘Well it sounds like you’re really not for [gay marriage],” the I Am Cait star recalled of a 2015 chat with the talk show host. “And I said, "No, I just said I'm for gay marriage.’"

“The next week, she goes on Howard Stern’s radio show and says I was against gay marriage and absolutely burnt my a**,” Jenner continued about their rift. “And so, in the media, I got really tough on her.”
