Even the Queen of All Media isn’t above reproach. It seems Oprah Winfrey’s been getting some heat for her interview with the Kardashian clan for the OWN network. Winfrey sat down with reality television’s first family earlier this week, and left no stone unturned when it came to their personal lives–including Kim Kardashian’s microwave quick marriage to Kris Humphries. Fans of Oprah, and voiced their displeasure on her Facebook page. Oprah, responded in kind:
“Ok my friends I had the longest interviewing session I can ever recall, talking to ALLLLLLLL the Kardashians. I had never met them, nor seen the show. I did a full on Kardashian Kram in preparation, watching major shows from every season. I genuinely wanted to know why they have become a cultural phenomenon? Why do so many people love to watch their every move and why do so many others love to hate them. Are they completely ego centered? Are they really “famous for being famous” or is there something more?
I “GOT IT” … those answers +more. Those of you who watch the show know they hold nothing back. This interview I’d say was another level of forthrightness and honesty. Who surprised me the most? Scott. Lamar and Khloe. Kim.”
