Oprah has explained her surprising decision to interview The Kardashians. Oprah posted a letter to her Facebook and Twitter pages, saying that she had never watched The Kardashians’ show and wanted to know why America was so intrigued by them. She wrote, “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?’
She continued, 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.”
Oprah’s Next Chapter with the Kardashians airs Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT on OWN.
