Los Angeles - Caitlyn Jenner felt "hurt" because her family didn't show their support for I Am Cait.

The former Olympian's new E! series - about her life after transitioning into a woman - premiered on Sunday and the only close relative to write about the show on social media was Caitlyn's daughter, Kylie Jenner.

A source revealed: "Caitlyn was really hurt last night. She was really bothered by the fact that her family didn't show their support online on their Twitter or Instagram accounts like they do for Keeping up with the Kardashians, or for their own projects."

Caitlyn's 17-year-old daughter tweeted: "Who's been watching I am Cait (sic)?"

However, 65-year-old's children - Kendall Jenner, Brody Jenner, Casey Jenner, Burt Jenner and Brandon Jenner - didn't share their thoughts of the show, which made Caitlyn feel ''unfairly treated'' because they ''wouldn't even take the time to post a simple message''.

The source told RadarOnline: ''Caitlyn felt unfairly treated because so many of her kids or family members wouldn't even take the time to post a simple message on their social media accounts this weekend.''

Meanwhile behing-the-scenes footage from Caitlyn's Vanity Fair shoot reveals she was housebound for three months during her transition into a woman.

Caitlyn debuted her new persona in a 22-page Vanity Fair feature back in May and new footage from the shoot has been published showing the lengths that the star went to in order to avoid the paparazzi ahead of her big reveal..

Caitlyn said: "I've basically been inside this house for the last three months. I haven't really left. It's difficult because I can't go out and be seen by the paparazzi, they're literally sitting down there.

"I would wear sweatshirt with hoods on them. And if my fingernails were polished - it was just hell. ... It was really, really tough on me."

Security was so tight that photographs and interview notes from inside the house were uploaded to a computer that was disconnected from the internet at all times.

When the final piece was ready, the files were hand-delivered to the printers by Vanity Fair's associate managing editor, Ellen Kiell.

In the 10-minute documentary - posted by the magazine on Vanity Fair's website - Caitlyn's reaction to her new look is caught on camera.

She says: "Honestly, I think we accomplished a lot of things today. They put this mirror up behind me when I was doing the shoot, I had this rocking black outfit on... and I kind of from a distance looked in the mirror and I go, 'Oh my god. It's the first time I'd ever really seen an image of me - of who I am - I mean.

"I kind of looked down and said 'You know what, this is going to work. We're going to be OK with this.' So yeah, we move forward. I am so excited about the future."
