That Time Barbara Walters Told the Kardashians They "Don't Have Any Talent"

A Vine of Barbara Walters interviewing the Kardashians back in 2011 has bubbled up and gone viral this week, with everyone commenting on Barbara's blunt comment to the group. At the time, the Kardashians were on her 10 Most Fascinating People list for that year, and following a bit of backlash, Barbara talked to Kris Jenner and her three oldest daughters about what it's like to be "famous for being famous." Looking at Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, and Khloé Kardashian, she said, "You don't really act, you don't sing, you don't dance, you don't have any — forgive me — any talent."

Nodding in agreement, the group acknowledged that they understood, with Khloé adding, "None of us think we have talents." Meanwhile, Kim talked about the pressure they face in having to be liked for being themselves, saying, "I think it's more of a challenge for you to go on a reality show and get people to fall in love with you for being you." Watch the viral Vine above and the full clip from 2011 below, then find out how the Kardashian-Jenners became multimillionaires.
