It happened. Oprah Winfrey interviewed the Kardashians—all of them! She took to her Facebook page to break the news today, admitting that although she has never seen a single episode of their reality shows, she knew that they were a cultural phenomenon and wanted to find out first-hand if they are truly "famous for being famous" or "something more." According to Winfrey, it's the latter. "I 'GOT IT' [...] Those of you who watch the show know they hold nothing back. This interview I’d say was another level of forthrightness and honesty. Who surprised me the most? Scott. Lamar and Khloe. Kim." [Celebuzz]
