The Kardashian Klan earned a spot in Barbara Walters' 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011 special on ABC Wednesday night. It's not really that surprising since the family's had more headlines this year than ever before with Kim's wedding, Kris Jenner's facelift, Kim's divorce, and Kourtney's pregnancy. Yes, 2011 was quite a rollercoaster ride for the reality family and America couldn't help but climb aboard to watch the drama unravel. So I guess that qualifies all them as fascinating.
But Walters wasn't going to let them off easy. In a sit-down with the famous family, the legendary journalist didn't hold back and immediately confronted Kim about her sex tape, asking if it turned out to be a good thing for her and her family in the long run. And in true Kardashian form, the reality star side-stepped the question with a vague response, saying, "I have made mistakes in my life, for sure," while failing to specify if the XXX film was one of those mistakes. But Mama Jenner was quick to chime in with a follow up response, reminding her daughter, "You learned a lot from that." The lesson being: yes, sex sells and is a great way to jump-start a career in the entertainment industry.
Additionally on Wednesday's special, Walters asked the Kardashians how they are able to maintain our attention without actually possessing any real talent (burn). She elaborated by saying, "You don't really act; you don't sing; you don't dance. You don't have any -- forgive me -- any talent!" This was a great question not only because it's absolutely hilarious, but also because it's so true. This family does absolutely nothing remarkable or talent worthy, yet we can't help but keep watching them. So what gives? Kim responded, explaining that despite their nonexistent gifted abilities, they still manage to be "very entertaining." She also remarked that there's more pressure on reality stars to "get people to fall in love with you for being you," so I guess that's supposed to qualify as their talent?
Regardless, the interview was totally worth it just to watch Walters so blatantly insult the family members to their faces. If you haven't already seen it, click here to watch it. You won't be disappointed!
