In a radio interview in Australia, Winfrey defends the Kardashians:
I interviewed the Kardashians two years ago and I can’t believe how hard they work. People don’t understand that, people think, Oh, if a television camera’s just following you, then that’s just easy. To really create a reality series that looks like something’s actually happening, it means you have to be on all the time. I went to film them as a family and I couldn’t believe how hard they worked. We were there for seven hours and they were gonna tape another seven hours after I left. No matter who you are, that is work.
