The Kardashian family's interview with media mogul Oprah Winfrey for her television show, "Oprah's Next Chapter," airs this weekend and a preview reveals that the former talk show host does not shy away from inquiring about controversial matters taking place within the clan.
Kim Kardashian, 31, is featured in a preview clip of the show that will air Sunday and shows Winfrey asking the most visible Kardashian family member the question many critics have been focusing on for years.
"Would you be where you are had there not been a sex tape," Winfrey asks the reality television star.
Although the preview only shows a glimpse of Kardashian's reaction, it does highlight another hard-hitting question concerning the reality star's 72-day marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries.
"When people say that your last marriage was a stunt, how does that make you feel," Winfrey asks Kardashian.
However, Winfrey does not stop there. The 58-year-old media proprietor also gives fans a glimpse at the controversial line of questioning she had for the Kardashian matriarch, Kris Jenner.
"Was there ever a moment where you asked yourself, 'Am I pimping my kids?'" Winfrey asks Jenner in the preview clip. "How much of it is real?"
In a portion of the clip that shows the entire Kardashian family, Oprah asks them collectively, "You think you're famous for what?"
Winfrey, who admitted that she never met the family or watched the show before preparing for the interview, gave some insight about the upcoming show on her Facebook page.
"Everyone who`s asked was the marriage a publicity stunt? Why did she leave after 72 days? Her answer leveled me," Winfrey said in the statement. "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."
Ultimately, Winfrey said she wanted to know the answers to the hard-hitting questions that were on everyone's mind.
"Are they completely ego centred," Winfrey questioned on her Facebook page. " Are they really `famous for being famous' or is there something more?"
