The reality star, 35, took to her website on Saturday, September 24, after a new interview in Wonderland magazine indicated that she was "on the fence" and thinking about voting for the Republican candidate after having a conversation with conservative former stepparent Caitlyn Jenner. (The magazine later disavowed the quotes.)

"A 'quote' of mine was released yesterday causing my phone to blow up by friends, family and even both candidate's camps, so I want to explain the context in which I said I was 'on the fence' about my vote," the Selfish author wrote.

"There was a point when I wasn't 100% sure I was even going to vote in this election; I didn't want to vote blindly. But I also thought about how not voting would mean that I wasn't making my voice heard, so I decided to talk to my closest friends and family who I love and trust, to have an open conversation about politics," she explained.

After Jenner encouraged her to do her research on both Trump and Hillary Clinton, the 35-year-old says she "thought about the things that are so important to me that they outweigh everything else, such as gun control and protecting women's rights to safe and legal abortion."

"I found that without a doubt, I stand with Hillary. I'm with her," she wrote. "I believe Hillary will best represent our country and is the most qualified for the job. This year, I'm not just voting for myself, but also for my children, and I took that into careful consideration when I made my decision."

The reality star stressed that although she's made her choice, she's not going to judge anyone based on their political or religious beliefs. "I believe that both candidates have the intention of making the country a safer and stronger place for every American, they just have different ideas about how we get there," she concluded.
