Barbara Walters Thinks Kimye Relationship Is Fake - Hates Them Both

Barbara Walters never comes out and says anything controversial. It just isn't her nature to do anything that might jeopardize a future interview or force her to apologize for something. It was therefore with great surprise that I found myself watching her Most Fascinating special which I blame on the fact I was sitting on the remote control and couldn't find it to change the channel and was further surprised when she blasted Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. yes, they made her most fascinating list but it doesn't mean she likes them. She says Kim is a fake and that Kanye is an ass and that the couple is probably fake and she does it in a way where you have to watch it a couple of times to really notice that she is giving it to them. You are also watching it more than once to see if her mouth is actually moving as she speaks or if someone just props her up in a chair and a voice over is used later.

Maybe she is getting a little more feisty as she heads towards retirement. Maybe she broke into jenny McCarthy's dressing room and got the good stuff stashed there. I don't know but I applaud her for calling out Kimye. Of course this is the same person who was desperate to interview Paris Hilton and called her a star at some point.

I'm more interested in what good stuff McCarthy has.

What did Walters say? To their faces? I didn't watch it

So....unfortunately I watched this program also and she definitely said verbatim that she likes them both.
She was slightly poking at their outrageous presence in society but quickly said that's who they are and she likes them.

Only thing that "impressed" me was her pushing Hilary Clinton to answer if she'd run for president.

in 10 years when she sits down with a totally pulled together I've been lucky and I'm healthy Paris Jackson I'll watch…

Go "Wah-Wah!"

She said this was her last one but who knows...

Misch, seriously doubt Baba Wawa will be interviewing anybody in ten years.

Whenever the question comes up of "is Kimye real?", I try to imagine what they are like behind closed doors. And I am at an absolute loss. What could they possibly talk about? Seriously. What interests do they share that aren't related to fame, money or PR? (Trick question! You want to answer "North" but she is clearly an amalgamation of all three of these.)

I can't picture them riding in a car together, watching TV, having dinner, seeing a movie, lounging on a beach -- nothing. I can't picture them partying together. Separate, yes, but not together.

I don't even see them cooing over North or discussing her care or tag-teaming a diaper change or bickering over who's turn it is to soothe her when she's crying for the eighth time that night.

I CAN picture Kim sitting there, focused on her phone, while Kanye talks AT her about how amazing they are and how they're gonna rule the world and the respect they're not getting and how creative he is and all the people that are sooooo jealous of them and what North is going to do and be at 1 and 5 and 16 and 21 years old. I can picture her hanging with her sisters/friends while Kanye huddles with his buds.

That pic of them in McDonald's or wherever from last month -- have you ever seen a couple look more like two complete strangers?

BTownGirl said...

@NomNom - Agreed! I think a big part of it is I imagine Kim's internal monologue to be:
"I'm going to take a picture of my ass now."
"I'm going to look at the pictures of my ass in US Weekly."
"Should I get my ass lifted again?"
"Where is the nanny? I need her to carry the baby so I can go out to lunch so everyone can see my ass in these pants."
"Why can't I ever feel my ankles? Why do all my pants have the number 2 on the tag?"

I'm awful :)

@BTownGirl: Spot on!

I saw it (once was enough) she didn't even interview them and she seemed to like them. Saying she was happy for their "true love" and success...So I may have not caught the sarcasm --I certainly wasn't giving it my full attention-- but it seems like we were watching 2 different shows...

I dont really care what walters thinks of them. And I can imagine their conversation: "Do I look perfect?" "Of course, you and I are both perfect! We"re more important than Jesus!" "But Do I look perfect?" "Yes, a thousand times yes. Dont let anyone doubt you bitch, you perfect!" "Lets get Westy- I mean Northie_ whatever- and drag her around for photo op. Later I'm gonna instagram her left leg" "Oh Kim, you have the best ideas!!" "So I am perfect?" Repeat.

Truth is in the eyes of the beholder and its not as if we all haven't seen these Entys twist stories around to fit their needs (PMK took them off the payroll I think)

All I'm getting from this item is that the 1970's were a very bad decade for the fashion industry. She looks like Jill Clayburgh at the height of her unhappy upper middle class woman movie fame (Clayburgh's 70's body of work was kind of an early feminism awareness franchise. The character names changed but the struggle was always the same).

Sherry said...

Somehow I just knew when I opened the comments that what WaWa really said would be here.

And NoMNom, BTown girl...You are both so spot on. What could they ever talk about? I don't even see Kanye as human. He seriously has no personality to me whatsoever.

hothotheat said...

They are both void a personality. And neither has a soul that I can see. I want to like Kanye but he's just so.....narcissistic.

PotPourri said...

I wish their baby was a fake because those two procreating make me SICK! That poor baby.

Sprink said...

I found this comment random and highly amusing.

Red said...

Their "conversations" are about as described above, I think, EXCEPT no references to the baby unless it's to prep for a photo op. The baby has 24/7 care from paid nurses so K&K need never be bothered with anything North-related.

Unknown said...

Kim is an uneducated barely literate idiot, and Kanye as a variety of personality disorders that look like a chinese menu, I can only imagine the horror each of them has when they do spend time alone together. Former John, Baby mama, stare in the mirror and plan what surgery to have next, all while being called bitch. She's just waiting to marry and get a big old pay day. Once a ho always a ho.
