Los Angeles: TV mogul Oprah Winfrey, who has interviewed Kim Kardashian and family for a new episode on her talk show, says the socialite`s explanation for her short-lived marriage to Kris Humphries "leveled" her.
The 58-year-old media mogul has said that Kardashian has given the reason behind her split from the basketball player after 72 days of marriage in the June 17 episode of `Oprah`s Next Chapter`.
"Everyone who`s asked was the marriage a publicity stunt? Why did she leave after 72 days? Her answer leveled me.
"I genuinely wanted to know why they have become a cultural phenomenon, why so many people love to watch their every move and why so many others love to hate them. Are they completely ego centred? Are they really `famous for being famous` or is there something more?" she wrote on her facebook page.
Oprah clarified that she had to do plenty of research before the chat with the Kardashian clan.
"I had never met them, nor seen the show. I did a full on Kardashian Kram in preparation, watching major shows from every season."
