(CBS) Kendall Jenner didn't feel the need to keep up with the Kardashians when she turned 16 last month. She was adamantly against having an over-the-top birthday party.

The budding model got very upset when her mother, Kris Jenner, wanted to step up her celebration by throwing a bash in the Bahamas with 75 of Kendall's friends.

"You're trying to make this bigger and bigger and it's embarrassing me," Kendall said in the Sweet 16 special that aired Monday night on E!. "You're just giving me this [party], you're just handing me this and I don't want it!"

Kris said her daughter was being unappreciative, but in the end, Kendall had a more low-key party at a West Hollywood hotel. She asked guests to bring gifts for kids at the Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

"For my mom to be like, 'Oh, we're going to have this huge extravagant party,' and to think those kids can't even go to a party because they're sitting in a hospital bed, it's just really sad," she said.
