Barbara Walters slams Kim Kardashian and Kanye West


Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were charred by the time that legendary TV journalist Barbara Walters was finished with the couple.

“Barbara Walters’ Most Fascinating People” focused on Kanye and runs down a list of many of the rapper’s very public outbursts and arrogant statements over the years. She also goes in hard on Kardashian again about being talent deficient.

Walter openly wonders when Kim fell in love with him: “Was it the moment he insulted Taylor Swift? Or the moment he insulted George W. Bush? Or the time he threw a punch at the paparazzi?” all accompanied by damning footage of West.

She also recalls interviewing Kardashian in the past, saying “I spoke to Kim on day 46 of her 72-day marriage,” Walters bluntly recalls, followed by a clip of Kardashian lying to Walters, telling her, “married life is good.”

Walters says that in her morning meetings at The View they have a game they play, “Is it possible to get through one Hot Topics meeting without mentioning Kanye West or Kim Kardashian?” Walters seems exasperated, “Usually, the answer is ‘no,’ so why should this show be any different?” She looks annoyed.

Walters is retiring in 2014 so this will be the last ever episode of Most Fascinating People. And it looks like Walters wants to go out with a bang! “Sadly, some people have mocked them,” Walter says without a hint of sadness for Kimye. “Skeptics say their relationship will never last because Kanye says he hates the press poking into his private life, and Kim does not seem to have that problem.”

“Kanye, as he has often pointed out, has many talents. He’s a singer, a thinker, a clothes designer, and a stylist,” Walters acknowledges about West, who also has 21 Grammys under his belt, “As for Kim’s talents,” She continues, “Well. She is very good at being herself.”

This is not the first time that Walters has bashed Kardashian publicly. In fact, she blasted Kardashian in her face. In 2011, Walters famously told Kim Kardashian:

“You don’t really act, you don’t sing, you don’t dance. You don’t have any, forgive me, talent.”
