Barbara Walters tells Kim Kardashian “You Don’t Have Any Talent”

December 16, 2011 05:50 AM by Perry Miller

Kim Kardashian, along with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe and momager Kris, sat down with Barbara Walters as part of her 10 Most Fascninating People of 2011 which aired on ABC last night. Barbara held nothing back, asking about being famous for being famous and the sex tape that started it all.

Kim Kardashian and her sisters Kourtney and Khloe are not often on the same list as Herman Cain and Steve Jobs. But the Kardashian clan are nothing if not fascinating, so it makes sense when the list is the Barbara Walter’s annual list of the 10 Most Fascinating People.

Barbara began the interview questioning Kim Kardashian about her infamous sex tape with R & B singer Ray J that made her a household name.  “So, was it a good thing to have done?” Walters asked of the X-rated clip.  Kim stammered before she replied, “I’ve made mistakes in my life for sure”.

The interview continued with Barbara Walters bringing up a frequent complaint about the famous reality family. “You don’t really act; you don’t sing; you don’t dance,…You don’t have any — forgive me — any talent!”

Kim Kardashian defended her fame by replying, “I think it’s more of a challenge to go on a reality show and get people to fall in love with you for being you. So, there’s definitely a lot more pressure, I think, to be famous for being ourselves.”

The interview turned light-hearted when Barbara as Kris Jenner, the Kardashian sisters’ mother and manager, about which daughter is her favorite. Kourtney and Khloe quickly replied, “Kim!”.

Kim Kardashian was able to skip questions about her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries because the interview taped before she filed for divorce on October 31.

    OH MY GOD THANK YOU BARBARA, I mean even during her SEX TAPE which I’m sure she leeked…she is a sexual DUD..I felt bad for RAY who tried to satisfy this piece of SH&T, and it must be hard, and defending a reality show? Having one’s life splayed all over the place when we KNOW now that REALITY shows are some of the most UNREALISTIC shows on TV, scripted, unbelievable…KK reminds me of Sarah Palin, a TRUE empty vessel..no real emotions, COLD, distant..A TRUE “C” word which I will not use, but she is the CLOSEST I’ve EVER seen to being a REAL ONE…MY GOD what a TALENTLESS, personality less PIECE OF HUMAN FECAL MATTER..KIm, go crawl back under the rock from whence you came..AND GOOD RIDDENCE to you and all the TALENTLESS who take the jobs of those with more talent in their PINKY than you have if you were cloned and there were 100 of you. DUMB BEEELOITCH – and LIKE Diane FARIDA, a potential drug abusing herion addict, known for telling a man one minute I’m falling for you and not 12 hours later kicking the confused dude to the curb, AT LEAST you didn’t consumate whatever false feelings YOU THINK you may have had over this HUMAN PIECE OF SPONGE, for she emulates perhaps what she sees on others…she may even be a sociopath UNABLE to formulate her own emotions at any rate allwe can hope for is her GOING FAR AWAY ASAP AND STAYING THERE MAY INDONESIA…SHE’S DARK ENOUGH, AND WOULD LOOK OKAY WITH HER FACE COVERED.

    The Kardashian shows are entertainment! I find them entirely entertaining and enjoyable. I will never understand how Kim fell for Kris Humphries….he is like a Bull in a china shop…rough, dumb, and uncooth. The Kardashians have class (well, except for Khloes mouth sometimes!)and they must be doing something right…they are making money, working hard and we all need to give them some slack!!! Thank God Kim got out of that marriage…..do you really think she should have stayed married to that goof-off for the sake of her audience….talk about “fake scripts”!

    Well, from my point of VIEW, I think that Barbara Walters, thinks her SHIT doesn’t stink. Who is she to be asking about the Kardashians having TALENT. It is too bad that the Kardashians, NO wait, for me it would be Khloe, cuz NOTHING gets past her. She should of said, *Well, Barbara, can you SING/DANCE because you are sure NOT a comedian. What TALENT are you good at? When this interview was broadcast, I thought, and said it out loud, * You IGNORANT Ba?T??D. Maybe Barbara NEEDS a good long MIRROR in her green room, so she can LOOK at herself, GOOD and CLOSEUP.She is rich, and so is oprah, so what is that saying,(Birds of a FEATHER FLOCK together) fit those 2 right down to the bone. Barbara NEEDS to get LAID.Kris Jenner would be the one to INFORM Barbara on what being a LOVING mother really is all about, and not always THINKING of what Barbara NEEDS.

    We all knew they had no talent, but it is still nice to hear someone else say it.

    First, this is just my opinion on one of the post.

    I am not a huge fan of Barbara Walters and she may not sing and dance but she was the first woman to co-anchor a network (ABC) evening news program. That was something historic for women that opened doors. Some might even add she did it without having to open her legs to get the spot.

    In her questioning of the Kardashions including Kim, it’s her job to ask. I hate shows when the person interviewing doesn’t ask the question we all want to know. Sometimes we know the answer but want to hear it from the horses mouth.

    Talent these days is hard to define. There are talented people who make it and there are people who some way some how have made money. They found a recipe for getting out there and making it. For all the problems the Kardahsions may have, there is absolutely no dispute people love them or they would not be able to make all the money they do. Kims’ sex tape didn’t start their fame, as far as I can tell Kris being married to two well known respected men gave her the ability to knock on doors to sell her family, so to speak.

    Kris has should have her uterus bronzed because everyone of her kids is part of the money machine. Her middle name should be 10%.
