Looks like Jesse James isn't the only newsmaker with something to say to ABC's Nightline this week. Reality-TV's most famous mom and three daughters -- Kris Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, and Kourtney Kardashian -- all sat down with Cynthia McFadden to clear up burning questions about stories that have made their way to countless tabloids, in a new interview airing Monday night (11:35 p.m., ET).
The Kardashians, who openly live their lives on their hit E! reality series Keeping Up With the Kardashians, say they have no intention of ending the series anytime soon.
According to ABC News, Kim, 29, said, "We have a really good time doing what we're doing. We love every project that we're into. We're just having a good time." Her sister Khloe, 25, agreed, "We do the show 'cause we're happy and it's fun for us." Mom Kris, 54, joked the show will go on for 52 seasons.
As they continue to willingly put themselves under the public microscope, the women addressed the many rumors that dog them, including plastic surgery speculation. Eldest sister Kourtney, 31, admitted, "I have had breast implants, but it's so funny 'cause it's not a secret, I could care less."
Kourtney, raising 5-month-old son Mason with boyfriend Scott Disick, talked about photos that surfaced after she gave birth, saying, "It's so funny because the 'before' picture that they (In Touch magazine) showed was after I had my boob job, so I'm like, they should have written 'before Mason' and 'after Mason."
Kim went on to deny she has had breast implants or a nose job (but admits that her nose is her greatest insecurity), but did say she has had Botox before, and claimed, "That's the only thing that I've done."
But rumors of comsmetic enhancements are hardly the only controversies Kim has faced. What about reports that Kris pushed her daughter to pose for Playboy magazine in 2007? "I thought it was a good idea," said Kris, adding, "I thought that so many iconic women have done Playboy." She went on to defend herself saying, "She wanted to do it, too. I mean, I didn't force her to go do Playboy."
An ambivalent-sounding Kim tried explaining her side of the story yet again (according to various reports, Kim regretted doing it and said it was, in fact, her mother's idea), telling McFadden, "That opportunity came about to do Playboy," said Kim, "I was on the fence about it. Do I want to be viewed this way or do I want to show women that, hey, I am curvy. I'm not like all these like stick-skinny models that I see on the cover of all of these magazines, including Playboy. And I thought that it would be empowering. And so, I did it. And at the end, I was uncomfortable. And at the end, I had a great time."
Khloe was also given the chance to talk about whether her wedding to basketball star Lamar Odom, whom she'd been dating for only a month before marrying, was paid for by E!, "They had to pay for movie lighting," Khloe said, adding, "Whatever their expenses were, that has nothing to do with me....So whatever they needed for filming purposes, that's what they had to pay for." But was it all just a publicity stunt? According to Khloe, "Well, I'm still married. I don't need ratings like that."
