Oprah Grills Kardashians About Sex And MoneyBy: Amanda Crum - June 18, 2012
Oprah grilled the entire Kardashian family mercilessly in the first hour of a two-part interview for her show Oprah’s Next Chapter, and some of Kim’s revelations shocked even the veteran talk-show host.
The infamous family sat down with Oprah to talk about the few aspects of their lives that the public isn’t already privy to, and she devoted quite a bit of time to Kim, delving deep into the questions she knew people wanted to know the answer to.
“Would you be where you are had there not been a sex tape?” Oprah asked.
“You know, I think that’s how I was definitely introduced to the world. It was a negative way, so I felt like I really had to work ten times harder to get people to see the real me.”
Kim also addressed rumors that she released the tape herself, saying she would never do anything to bring humiliation to her family’s name. She also talked about her brief marriage to basketball star Kris Humphries, saying that the two of them simply weren’t around each other for long enough periods of time before getting married and really had no idea what they were getting into.
“I think when people first meet, everything is great in the beginning, but I didn’t spend more than a whole week with my ex before we married,” Kim said. “When we moved in together, I saw how our relationship was… I don’t want to get into the small things, but once we moved in, I knew he was not the one.”
Kim also revealed that her mom, Kris Jenner, helped her get on birth control at the tender age of 14 after she explained that she wanted to lose her virginity to her boyfriend of two years.
“She said, ‘OK, so this is what we’re gonna do, we’re gonna put you on birth control,’ and she was like, really open and honest with me,” Kim said.
Part two of the interview may have even juicier bits of info, including Oprah’s questions about Kanye West and his role in the Kardashian family’s life. The next installment airs on OWN on June 24th at 8 p.m.
