Barbara Walters went for broke when interviewing the Kardashians as part of her "Most Fascinating People" special. According to the New York Post, the 82-year-old journalist told the reality star family they lack talent.
During the interview with Kourtney, Khloe, Kim and mom Kris, which aired Wednesday on ABC, Walters didn’t waste any time bringing up Kim’s sex tape. "Was it a good thing to have done?” Walters asked.
"I have certainly made mistakes in my life, for sure," Kim said of the video that made her famous. Kris Jenner called the sex tape “devastating.”
Barbara asked which of the girls is mom Kris Jenner's favorite, and - surprise, surprise - the sisters all answered Kim, while Kris played coy. Khloe came back with another zinger for her “momager”: "It's whoever gives her the most percentage rights.”
Walters also brought up the “famous for being famous” critique. "You don't really act; you don't sing; you don't dance,” she told the women. “You don't have any – forgive me — any talent!"
"But we're still entertaining people," Khloe responded.
"I think it's more of a challenge for you to go on a reality show, and get people to fall in love with you for being you," Kim added.
As for Kim’s recent quickie marriage, it wasn’t mentioned because the interview was taped in September. Kardashian filed for divorce from Kris Humphries on Halloween.
