Because one entertainment channel â€“ E! â€“ is now apparently not enough to cover the merry adventures and misadventures of Americaâ€™s royalty, The Kardashians (and their latest doings on Keeping Up With the Kardashians Season 7), now Oprah Winfrey has decided to interview them on Oprahâ€™s Next Chapter: The Kardashians â€“ Part 1 on her Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), a network that started off with great promise and now is instead programmed with Dr. Phil re-runs, 48 Hour re-treads and rom-com movies starring Kate Hudson. Oh Oprah, please, just admit you made a mistake with the network and go back to your old show. Or, better yet, resurrect All My Children and One Life to Live and see how many viewers youâ€™ll get then!
I think we know that weâ€™re in for an interview filled with easy to answer, non-confrontational questions when Oprah starts out with calling the Kardashians the â€œreigning royal family of reality TVâ€. In the first segment of the Oprah Kardashians interview, we learn that, among the clan, the Kardashians/Jenners have a stake in over 30 products and that, according to Khloe Kardashian Odom, all they ever really â€œwanted (was) to be successfulâ€. Fame, apparently, has nothing to do with the constant stream of paid appearances and nightclub parties. Kourtney Kardashian claims sheâ€™s â€œnot comfortable with being famousâ€. Sure.
