Kim Kardashian & Family's Hard Work Is Defended By Oprah

Kim Kardashian steps out for lunch with her friend Jonathan Cheban on Monday afternoon (November 9) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

After the 35-year-old pregnant reality star and her family were criticized by Rebel Wilson, media mogul Oprah Winfrey is coming to their defense and backed up their hard work.

“To really create a reality series that looks like something is actually happening, you have to be on all the time,” Oprah said on KissFM’s Kyle and Jackie O Show.

“I went to film them as a family. I couldn’t believe how hard they work. So I disagree that they don’t do work,” she added. “They have become their own iconic phemon, in this country and abroad, and you don’t get that by not doing some work.”

    Everyone should criticize the Kardashian family as they are a total waste of life.

    the only real reason this family is still on TV today, in comparison to many reality show’s that were at one time equally big and eventually went down is bc of the network that the kardashian show is on. the E! network has like what….2 – 3 shows? so u still have to fill up 24 hrs of programming….they just rerun kardashian shows all day/night lol. ur bound to watch it, even if its for 5 mins bc the show is always on.

    its not bc of any talent. they were just lucky enough to be on a lazy network. u could argue that the osbournes or jersey shore at one time was equally big or bigger than the kardashians as far as popularity but MTV had like 50 other shows on their network besides jersey shore lol E! network doesn’t

    So she’s saying that they work hard to make up a lot of drama and action? Hmm, I don’t but that as work. I’m guessing there are writers that come up with sick little storylines and they just pretend they are happening. Shame on Oprah. She’s really lost it over the years and has backed several really, really dubious people.

    She is so gross looking. And fake. Cannot stand this BS

    Nobody said that they don’t work Oprah my gosh. Of course going down on all fours and RJay is a feat on itself keeping that momentum to include all her family is a work. But having talent, going to school to hone that talent, and being in screen test and audition is what MOST people do in this business that earned them respect. The way the Kardashian’s did it is like cutting on line it’s not the same they don’t deserved the respect that Rebel Wilson any everyone in Hollywood had worked and almost died to achieved. THEY DON;T DESERVED AWARDS LIKE THE EMMY OR EVEN BE INVITED ON ON ANY OF IT. BECAUSE THEY DID NOT EARNED IT. I don’t think any of the award giving body chairman will ever nominate them for any category even if Kim or Kris will offer to go down on them for free.

    Shut your mouth Oprah nobody has an ounce of respect for a woman who chases around and begs the sex tape family for interviews. What a piece of garbage Oprah has become.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Dude they have a MILLION spin off shows, and they all come on as soon as the previous season of the other show finished! Say what you want about them, but they are filming 100% of the time!

  • Legendary Trolly

    You watch it because you like it! If not, you’d change the channell! Gotta give them credit, they are churning in viewers and money!

    Rebel Wilson never said they don’t work, she said they are not famous for any talent at all. It’s COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.

    Of course they work, I mean, to keep up a business you have to do something, even if it is just to supervise your people, but it’s not like they are artists, or they studied anything.

    They built an empire on trash and gossip. A big and fruitful empire, good for them, but they are still talentless and I can understand the frustration of someone who’s trying to make it with their art and talents.

    Yeah pimping out your daughters [ perhaps figuratively and actually ehem] something to be very proud of Oprah and the daughters pimping out their kids and let’s not mention the personal damage to various members of the family including in-laws, casualties of living in a reality show bubble all started with a sex tape and Kim being best buds with the first sex tape reality queen Paris Hilton.

    Oprah is the one that can be proud of her accomplishments, she was born poor and built an empire truly built on talent.

    And sadly this family has been one of the pioneers in shifting pop culture in a way that has not been a good thing for humanity.
