Transcript Excerpts From Kardashian Family Part Two, Sunday, June 24:
Excerpt: Kim talks about her new relationship with Kanye West.
OPRAH: Is Kanye West the new fairytale?
KIM: Um –
OPRAH: Blush, blush.
KIM: (Laughter.) I’ve known him – we met maybe almost a decade ago. I’ve known him for a really long time.
KIM: We’ve been friends for like six or seven years. So it’s very comforting to have someone that knows everything about you, that respects you, understands, has gone through similar things. I can really relate to his mother passing. He can really relate to my father passing. I mean, there’s so many similarities in our life that, I feel like I’m at a really happy good space and there’s, you know, I don’t know why it took, you know, so long for us to kind of get together …
OPRAH: To move from friendship to next level?
KIM: Yeah. But I think I needed to go through all my experiences and some that he’s gone though.
OPRAH: How did it get all revved up because you’ve been friends all this time? Was he comforting you?
Excerpt: Khloe Kardashian Odom shares the pressure of marriage
OPRAH: Do you feel pressure to make this marriage work because it’s in the public?
KHLOE: I don’t feel the pressure by outsiders. I’m not someone who’s easily influenced by the public. This is my marriage. This is my real life. I feel the pressure from me for myself to be a great wife.
OPRAH: So you don’t read what people say about you?
KHLOE: I try not to. I don’t get tabloids. I try to not go on blogs. But does it come to me through of course like our publicist or this or that or my sisters or, yeah, you have even like my grandmother will text me and be like, so, you’re having twins? And I was like not yet. I’m sorry. I’ll tell you.
Excerpt: Kourtney Kardashian and boyfriend Scott Disick talk to Oprah about Scott being the black sheep of the family
Oprah: So tell me this. You were known as the black sheep of the family. You know that, right?
Oprah: Years ago I did a show specifically about the black sheep of the family. And interestingly enough, somebody said something I never forgot. They said the person who is the black sheep is usually the person who is the most sensitive, who absorbs all of the other family members’ energy.
Scott: Yeah, that couldn’t be more true. One hundred percent.
Oprah: You would say that’s true.
Scott: I mean I’ve never actually looked at it like that, but when you say it, it seems much more sensible.
Kourtney: I would say that, too
Scott: It’s true. I am an only child. You know I like to put up a wall or a front making pretend I’m more confident or more than what I am but I am insecure about a lot of things and it is tough being in a big family, especially being from, you know, a family where it was just me. And so yeah, I take things pretty hard and I am sensitive where people would never imagine that I am.
Oprah: Let’s get real here, a lot of your jerkiness, a lot of the behavior that’s perceived as being rather rude or jerky, you are saying now that that really is your insecurity?
Excerpt: Bruce Jenner reveals the one thing he would take back
Oprah: Has there been a moment, or two or three moments, where you just kind if wished gee, I wish it wasn’t all out there?
Oprah: What do you wish you could take back that we’ve seen?
Bruce: The only thing, the whole wedding thing. We went so overboard on that. And, the way it turned out and everything.
Bruce: Kim’s. And, because I mean at the time it was honest, it was love, it was exact, I mean, I was all in, you know? But then it turned so quickly.
Oprah: Did you believe that it was going to work?
Bruce: I was hoping it would work.
Oprah: Yeah. Did you believe more that that would work than you believed in Khloe and Lamar because Khloe and Lamar had only been together for a really short time, like a month?
Kris: Nine days
Bruce: We have so much to talk about Oprah. Okay, now, where do we start?
Kris: Oh my god, here we go.
