In Oprah Winfrey’s explosive interview with the Kardashian family last night, June 17, Kim Kardashian defended her mom, finally apologized to Kris Humphries, and more! Read on for all the details!
The Kardashian family may be the most overexposed celebrity family of our generation, but leave it to Oprah to dig a little deeper and reveal even more truth on her hit series Oprah’s Next Chapter!
Oprah started her highly-anticipated interview with a sit-down among herself and the four Kardashian siblings: Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Robert! While Kourtney admits to still feeling uncomfortable being “famous,” Khloe realizes that they may not be where they are today if they weren’t all so good looking! (Wait, what?)
Robert, the most reserved of the siblings, admits that he hates the words “famous” and “celebrity” as they carry an arrogant connotation. He even admits that he was clueless to his mom, Kris Jenner’s, affair during her first marriage to their father, the late Robert Kardashian. The sisters seem baffled by this statement, and we have to agree! (Rob, are you even in this family? We’re the viewers, and even we knew about it!)
Oprah continued her Kardashian extravaganza with a heart to heart in the kitchen with “momager” Kris! While talk of O.J. Simpson and Kim’s sex tape were titillating and interesting to hear about, we couldn’t contain ourselves with the idea that Kris must be reading Hollywoodlife.com! Kris admits that there are stories in the media that depict her as “pimping out her children.” (Could she have read our review on the Kardashian family music video of B.I.G.’s “Hypnotize”?) Either way, Kris denies the claims and feels she’s grateful to be getting paid to spend time with her family!
Kim even defended her mom’s stance as their manager. “I think that’s so ridiculous,” Kim said of the public perceiving Kris as a pimp. “First of all, we have to hire a manager. So regardless, someone is going to get that [job]. No one will fight harder for you than your own mother,” she added. “She knows us. She knows all of our moods…We just get each other. We vibe. It works.”
Part 1 of the Kardashian interview (Part 2 airs Sunday June 24 on OWN) concluded with the open and honest, candid conversation with Kim! While Kim was questioned on her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries and her infamous sex tape with ex Ray J, her acceptance and acknowledgement of the gravity these events made on her life show a Kim that’s truly growing up.
“I feel like I’ve had an epiphany over the last year for what I’ve been through, and I am that changed person just from my own experiences,” Kim said.
If you’re looking for details on Kim’s current relationship with beau Kanye West, you’ll have to wait until next week when the conclusion of the two-part interview airs on OWN!
What did YOU think, HollywoodLifers? What are you hoping gets answered next week!
