If there’s one person with whom we wouldn’t want to discuss sex tapes, it’s Barbara Walters. She just looks like everybody’s grandma, you know? Unfortunately for Kim Kardashian, the subject was unavoidable when Walters interviewed her for the “Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011” list.
“You first came to public attention in 2007 with a sex tape,” Walters says, while the Kardashians stared on wide-eyed. “And you became famous. So was it a good thing to have done, looking back?”
Kardashian was caught a little off guard. “I really believe with anything in life — whatever you do — you might think — I’m, I’ve made mistakes in my life. For sure.”
Her mom, Kris Jenner, had a stronger opinion. “It was devastating for the whole family,” she says. You cry yourself to sleep for a few nights, then you hire a really good attorney and try to make something better, you know, happen.”
Walters didn’t hold back when she asserted that the Kardashians are basically talentless. “You don’t really act. You don’t sing. You don’t dance. You don’t have any — forgive me — any talent,” she says.
“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,” Kardashian replies.
