Flashback To Barbara Walters Dropping The Hammer On The Kardashians: “You Don’t Have Any Talent!”

This still makes me laugh almost 10 years later.

The Kardashians were being interviewed by the great Barbara Walters for her 10 Most Fascinating People special when she dropped THE HAMMER people still talk about today:

“You are often described as famous for being famous…”

“You don’t really act, you don’t sing, you don’t dance…”

“You don’t have any, forgive me, ANY TALENT!”

Hot damn, does Barb let them know who the boss is. What a way to start an interview – by body-bagging your guests for having no talent. Barbara is basically thinking out loud, wondering why the hell she’s interviewing these people and just says it for the entire world to see.

I respect that.

That’s why she’s a legend.

Relive that uncomfortable yet satisfying interview below (the “no talent” parts starts at 1:35).
