Does This Help At All? Oprah Explains Why She Interviewed The Kardashians
Most of us have already figured out why Oprah’s really interviewing the Kardashians, but telling people she sold her soul to the reality TV devil just to keep her drowning network afloat likely wouldn’t fly for her brand. Hence, Oprah’s come up with a more earth mother, journalistic explanation for her controversial interview that she hopes will quiet the sellout backlash that’s been directed her way. Here’s what she wrote in a personal message to viewers:
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.
Everyone who’s asked was the marriage a publicity stunt? Why did she leave after 72 days? Her answer leveled me.
Please note that this show will air Sunday at 8/7 central not its usual time. Followed by Part 2 of my conversation with 50 Cent at 9/8c where he talks about things you wouldn’t imagine coming from him. Meditation. Outgrowing his audience. What really matters now. I had a great eye opening experience with him and released a lot of my preconceived notions and judgement. I’m loving this NEXT CHAPTER I get to do for myself what I intended for you the audience: Open the heart space, expand the way we see things, especially each other.
A great day on OWN beginning with Super Soul Sunday at 11am/10c with Devon Franklin (thanks for your many “likes” on that one), hope you’ll tune in. An insightful visit with the Kardashians, every single one of them except 2 year old Mason. Then FIF.
Fif? She’s really rocking this pop culture thing now isn’t she? Oprah has clearly gotten caught up in the Kardashian magic. She sounds like Star Jones after she sat down and talked to Evelyn—something about these shady characters just captivates people and turns them from enemies into friends instantly.
I can’t imagine anyone of the siblings saying anything different from what we’ve already heard from one of the zillion interviews they’ve done before, but Oprah obviously seems to think so.
