Barbara Walters to Kardashians: 'You Don't Have Any Talent!'
FoxNews.com ^ | December 15, 2011 | By Meaghan Murphy

Posted on 12/15/2011 10:32:47 AM PST by US Navy Vet

Barbara Walters is telling it like it is when it comes to Kim Kardashian and the rest of her family.

"You don't really act; you don't sing; you don't dance," Walters bluntly told the reality star during an interview taped for “Barbara Walters’ 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011,” as reported by RadarOnline.com. "You don't have any -- forgive me -- any talent!"

Kim, flanked by mom Kris and sisters Khloe and Kourtney, defended her peculiar sort of fame, “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. So, there’s definitely a lot more pressure, I think, to be famous for being ourselves.”

You’re correct Barbara, but who the heck are you to talk?

“Maybe there IS hope for this country after all.”

My thoughts exactly.

It’s high time that someone calls out these pseudo-celebrities and asks them “Seriously, why are you famous? What have you done to earn this attention?”.

Exactly. We should listen to Barbara on this point. She is exceptionally well acquainted with the state of having no talent.

What exactly do Kardashians do that makes them famous?

I’ve never heard of them before last spring, and still cant tell if they are actors or do they sell something?

This family is so famous because Kim is so beautiful.

If not for her, the other two would not be famous.

Kim is so beautiful men AND women love her- men would watch this show with the sound turned off and women watch it because they want to be as beautiful as her.

Tell me where I am wrong?

Now if a critical view of Barry’s qualifications, socialist intentions, and the resulting adverse impact to our country could be taken, perhaps there would be hope for this country.

I heard some more of the interview and Babs asks them who is the most vain and they all answer KIM. Then Babs asks who is your mom’s favorite and they all answer KIM. The mom knows where her bread is buttered!

Headline: Non-talented Interviews Talks With Non-Talented Guest

Kim is flat-out saying she has a harder job to remain in the pop culture limelight because she admits she has no real talent.

She’s not quite ready to admit she’s an attention whore, but I think if she keeps being pressed to keep thinking about it, she may get there.

Especially when you are a family of immoral attention whores whose only claim to fame was a purposely released sex tape. These people are a disgrace and Sears should be ashamed of itself for promoting a “Kardashian” collection which if accurate, is a collection of venereal diseases.

So what does Baba Wawa have to say about her talentless co-hosts/fellow slunts on The Spew?!?
As far as “beautiful”, Kim and her Mom look like weasels and that big one looks like Frankenberry.

You know, I must be getting unhip and middle age because while I've heard the name Kardashian mentioned, and I have some vague notion they have a TV show or something, I really have no idea who they are, if I met one on the street I wouldn't know them from Adam. I don't have the slightest idea what their famous for or what their TV show is about, and probably never will.

There are hundreds, maybe thousands even, of guys in this and other countries who will tell you that Barbara Walters isn't even good in bed.

So who is she to judge someone else's talent!

Speak for yourself. I don’t find her beautiful at all.

Perhaps if I was a horse farmer in My Lady’s Manor in northern Baltimore county I would feel differently, as she does somewhat remind me of a broodmare.

Her "accomplishments" in life include, having had surgery to add plastic parts to various portions of her body, apparently to attract men. This same sort of strategy would seemingly support that these same men are attracted to inflatable plastic dolls.

Seriously, why are you famous?

Because there are people out there who adore this reality stuff. Obviously they have the ratings otherwise they would be cancel-led. It doesn't take brains to produce, direct or act in a reality show. It is lazy TV fodder that is cheap to make rather than good programing.

The only talent she has is located below her waist, and above her knees.

Unless being able to walk and breathe at the same time is also considered a talent.
