But now one of the most famous people in the world is leaping to the defense of the Kardashians: Oprah Winfrey, who spoke out on behalf of the reality-show family during an interview with Australian radio show Kyle and Jackie O.

“I interviewed the Kardashians two years ago and I can’t believe how hard they work,”; said Oprah. “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.”;

She added: “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.”;
