Brody Jenner, the newest recruit on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, is speaking out about his reality show repertoire, defending KUWTK over his former show The Hills.

Brody — whose dad is Bruce Jenner — is now revealing that he is happy to appear on KUWTK because it's real. Talking about his choice to allow cameras to film his serious 1-on-1 with his father, Brody said, "As far as the Kardashians go, that's real life. I was going through that with my father pretty much just on a daily basis, getting to know him. And they were filming for their show, and they basically said to me, 'Do you want to put this on air or do you not?' And I had a think about it and I pretty much said yes, because I believe there are a lot of good things that can come out of this."

Believing the cameras actually helped improve his relationship with his father, Brody added: "I think the cameras really kind of sparked us to take it to the next level, to really get to know each other on a different level and I'm so grateful for it. So that's the difference between The Hills and the Kardashians. It's two completely different worlds."

In addition to building a stronger relationship with his dad, Brody also revealed that he has also become close to the Kardashian sisters, in particular Kim and Khloe.

"Absolutely. I have never felt so close to that side of the family than I do now, with Khloe and Kimberly. To be honest, Kim and I saw each other a lot over the past five, six years, just as far as Hollywood stuff and events. When I was doing The Hills — and I was on that for five years — then I would see Kim all the time, just out and about at events and stuff like that."

Brody is definitely becoming a part of the family.
