Oprah Winfrey wanted to know: Was Kim Kardashian's marriage to Kris Humphries a publicity stunt?
"This interview I'd say was another level of forthrightness and honesty," Winfrey writes on her Facebook page."Why did she leave after 72 days? Her answer leveled me."
To prepare for her sitdown with the reality TV clan for this weekend's Oprah's Next Chapter the talk show magnate "did a full on Kardashian Kram."
"I had never met them, nor seen the show," she writes.
Winfrey calls it the "longest interviewing session I can ever recall, talking to ALLLLLLLL the Kardashians."
Sometimes you've got to get away from reality TV to get real.
So say Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom in addressing rumors that E! pulled the plug on their show, Khloé and Lamar.
"Our show is not cancelled," Kardahsian, 27, tells "Lamar and I have chosen ... to take a break this summer. ... We just want to take a little time off for Lamar to be with family time, kids, basketball, Olympics, you never know. So, we have a lot on our plate right now."
Will Khloé and Lamar be back for another season? Depends on how the basketball bounces.
A rep for Kardashian says that reports that E! pulled the plug on the reality show featuring Khloé her NBA player husband are incorrect.
"It has NOT been cancelled," the rep tells PEOPLE. "It’s just on hold now while schedules are figured out. It will depend on their schedules, as Lamar’s basketball schedule is a priority."

Maybe it was just the post-Valentine's Day buzz talking, but Khloé Kardashian says that if rumors that her big sister Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush are rekindling their romance are true, she's, well, behind it.
"I love 'The Bush and The Tush,' " Kardashian, 27, told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show on Wednesday. "You can't do much better than that."
But Kardashian said she could neither confirm nor deny that Kim, 31, and the 26-year-old Miami Dolphins running back were back on after two years apart and only a handful of months after her quickie marriage to Kris Humphries ended. (The two were spotted at lunch together on the patio of the Polo Lounge in the Beverly Hills Hotel on Sunday.)
