Leave it to Oprah Winfrey to ask the tough questions. In her next installment of Oprah's Next Chapter (airing this Sunday at 8 p.m./7 p.m CT on OWN), the TV legend talks to every single member of the Kardashian family -- and gets into some pretty uncomfortable territory. Watch the preview below!
Not only did Winfrey ask Kim Kardashian, "Would you be where you are if there hadn't been a sex tape?," but she also grilled her about her 72-day marriage -- and says the answer will surprise us all.
"Everyone who's asked was the marriage a publicity stunt? Why did she leave after 72 days? Her answer leveled me," Oprah writes in a special blog post about the episode.
In her blog post, Oprah notes that the Kardashian family members who "surprised me the most" were Kim, Scott Disick (could he possibly be nicer in person?), Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian Odom. Winfrey doesn't say anything in particular about mom/manager Kris Jenner, even though she seems to be grilling her pretty hard in the preview. (Sample question: "Was there ever a moment when you asked yourself, 'Am I pimping my kids?'")
Not being a Keeping Up with the Kardashians fan, Winfrey says she did "a full on Kardashian Kram" in preparation for her interview, watching "major shows from every season."
"I genuinely wanted to know why they have become a cultural phenomenon? Why do so many people love to watch their every move and why do so many others love to hate them," writes Winfrey. "Are they completely ego centered? Are they really 'famous for being famous' or is there something more?"
The talk-show host assures readers that she got those answers and more, in an interview that reaches "another level of forthrightness and honesty." Color us intrigued! We also can't wait to hear the answer to the question Winfrey posed to every member of the family: "You're famous for... what?"
