Oprah’s Kardashian Interview: 5 Things We Learned (PHOTOS)
While the Keeping Up With the Kardashian crew is pretty much an open book, living their lives out on reality TV, Oprah Winfrey dug deep and got the answers their fans (and critics) have been dying to know.
Here are the top five things we learned during the interview.
1. Kim went into a depression following her divorce from New Jersey Nets player, Kris Humphries.
“I was in such a deep depression I thought I was going to back away from it all,” said Kim, 31. “You know when you just have that feeling that he’s the one? When we moved in, I had the feeling he was not the one.”
When Winfrey pressed the reality star about the wedding being a publicity stunt, Kardashian denied the claim.
“If anything, the tough decision to end that relationship was such a risk of losing ratings, losing my fan base, but I had to take that risk for myself,” said Kardashian.
2. Despite the short marriage, Kim has no ill-will toward her ex-husband.
“He’s a good person. I will always have a place in my heart for him. It just wasn’t for me,” said Kim.
3. The Kardashians are not comfortable being thrust into the spotlight.
“I still am not comfortable being famous,” said Kourtney, who is pregnant with her second child to boyfriend Scott Disick.
Oprah retorted: “Nobody would believe the Kardashians aren’t comfortable being famous.”
Younger brother Rob swooped in, adding: “I hate the word [celebrity]. Sounds like you’re talking about yourself arrogantly.”
4. The Kardashian clan sticks together — and love having their mom, Kris Jenner, as their manager.
When asked if Jenner was “pimping out” her children, Kim responded:
“We have to hire a manager, why not hire our mother? No one will fight harder for you than your own mother.”
5. Kim Kardashian, who is dating rapper Kanye West, wants to have kids.
“I want babies. I want my forever, and I want my fairytale,” she told Oprah.
“And now I just love that I’m with someone that’s a couple years older than me,” she referred to her 35-year-old beau. “For what I’ve been through I am that changed person, just from my own experiences.”
Next Sunday night, June 24, OWN will air the second part of the interview, which will feature Kim’s candid comments about her relationship with Kanye West and sit-down interviews with Khloe and her husband, Lamar Odom, as well as Kourtney and her boyfriend Scott.
