BARBARA WALTERS made celebrity news headlines when she told the KARDASHIANS that they “don’t have any talent” during a sit-down interview on ABC for Walters’ “10 Most Fascinating People of 2011.”
The most prominent members of the Kardashian Klan—namely Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, and momager Kris Jenner—earned a place on Barbara Walters’ annual “10 Most Fascinating People of 2011,” and during their interview on ABC earlier this week, Barbara did not hold back, purposely bringing up Kim’s infamous sex tape and telling the Kardashians that they are talentless. She said:
“You are all famous for being famous… You don’t really act; you don’t sing; you don’t dance. You don’t have any—forgive me—any talent!”
“But we’re still entertaining people.”
“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, so there’s definitely a lot more pressure.”
Barbara then brought up Kim’s sex tape with ex-boyfriend and hip-hop star Ray-J, which catapulted her to fame back in 2007. She asked:
“So was it a good thing to have done?”
“I’ve made mistakes in my life, for sure.”
Kris Jenner chimed in:
“And you learned a lot from that.”
Did she? Well, the most obvious lesson there is: do not make a sex tape. But what else is there?
Aside from the Kardashians, Walters’ list, which was topped by the late Apple head honcho Steve Jobs, also included Amanda Knox, Herman Cain, Donald Trump, Derek Jeter, Simon Cowell, Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Pippa Middleton, Katy Perry.
