Oprah Admits to Never Seeing ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ Before Interview: ‘I Kardashian Krammed In Preparation’


Talk show maven Oprah Winfrey has interviewed Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson, Ellen DeGeneres and Tom Cruise — but how do the Kardashians stack up?

"This interview I'd say was another level of forthrightness and honesty,” the OWN founder wrote on Facebook, in a post published Thursday.

Though Oprah, 58, admitted she’d never seen an episode of E!’s Keeping Up with the Kardashians before going one-on-one with each member of the clan, the world famous interviewer admitted she “Kardashian krammed” before the cameras rolled.

“I had never met them, nor seen the show,” she said, writing to fans about the interview that will air on Oprah's Next Chapter this Sunday. “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?”

Who surprised Oprah the most?

She said, in the Facebook missive: “Scott [Disick]. Lamar [Odom] and Khloe. Kim.”

Oprah, who quit her internationally syndicated talk show after 25 seasons in 2011, wrote in full:

"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. "

Tune in to the interview when it airs on Oprah's Next Chapter this Sunday at 8 PM/7PM Central.
