Oprah Winfrey says Kim Kardashian's explanation for her short-lived marriage to Kris Humphries "leveled" her.
An interview by the media mogul with the entire Kardashian clan television stars is due to air on Sunday on her network OWN.
Oprah has revealed that the 31-year-old's split from the basketball player in October will be addressed in the program, Oprah's Next Chapter. "Everyone who's asked was the marriage a publicity stunt? Why did she leave after 72 days? Her answer leveled me," she wrote on her Facebook page.
Oprah hinted more about what will feature in the one-hour chat: "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. Are they completely ego centered? Are they really 'famous for being famous' or is there something more?"
Oprah Winfrey taped her final show this week, and Chicago was brimming with A-listers who came to help her say good-bye. A massive stage was added to the United Center, which was packed with more than 20,000 fans.

TMZ spotted Oprah Winfrey’s production crew outside the Jackson home over the weekend. The workers, who arrived in several trucks and two SUVs, confirmed that they were there doing “an Oprah shoot.”
The crew ordered pizzas and received a parking ticket while inside the home. They stayed briefly, then packed up and left.
Oprah did not make an appearance, so it’s likely the team was shooting an introductory segment for an eventual Katherine Jackson interview.
