Barbara Walters Grills the Kardashian Girls

Brings up sex tape, points out their "lack of talent."

Published December 16, 2011

Talk about a back-handed compliment. Barbara Walters chose the Kardashians for her Most Fascinating People of 2011, but then decided to call them talentless opportunists during her sit-down interview with sisters Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and mom Kris Jenner.

In the gloves-off interview, which aired this week, the octogenarian journalist pointed out to the girls, "you don't really act; you don't sing; you don't dance. You don't have any  — forgive me — any talent!"

"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 responded, while Khloe came to her family's defense by adding, "but we're still entertaining people."

Walters also brought up Kim's infamous sex tape with Ray J, to which she demurely responded, "I have certainly made mistakes in my life, for sure." (Kris Jenner called the sex tape “devastating.”)

Most surprising was when Walters asked Jenner to pick her favorite daughter. "It's whoever gives her the most percentage rights," Khloe retorted. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
