Barbara Walters interviews ‘fascinating’ Kardashians; Lady Gaga is top-earning female musician

Barbara Walters interviewed Kris Jenner and daughters Kourtney, Khloe and Kim Kardashian, as part of her annual most fascinating people TV special. But for an interview that was attempting to convince us this family is “fascinating,” it was kind of boring.

Did Walters ask Kim about her divorce? No. Did she grill momager Kris about putting her youngest daughters in the public eye? No.

The most “uncomfortable” question she asked was about Kim’s 2007 sex tape with Ray J, something she’s been asked about quite a few times.

If anything was “fascinating” about the interview, it was Walters calling the Kardashians talentless to their faces. (Khloe responded honestly, “None of us think we have talents.”) Watch the interview below.

Actually fascinating person Steve Jobs topped Walters’s list, which also included Pippa Middleton, Herman Cain, Simon Cowell, Katy Perry, Derek Jeter, Amanda Knox, Donald Trump, Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson. (WaPo; Lifeline)

Kim Kardashian reportedly purchased three jade and diamond bracelets that belonged to Elizabeth Taylor for $65,000. The reality star interviewed the screen legend shortly before her death in February 2011. (TMZ)

Lady Gaga is the top-earning female musician this year, bringing in $90 million from “album sales, touring and endorsements.” Taylor Swift and Katy Perry follow with $45 million and $44 million respectively. (Billboard)

Justin Bieber was once again pulled over in his “Batmobile” Cadillac, this time for making an unsafe turn at an intersection. Somehow, he got off with another warning. It’s good to be the Biebs. (E!; TMZ)

President Obama has good taste in television, after the jump.

President Obama watches “Modern Family” with the kids. But when he’s on his own, he tunes into “Boardwalk Empire” and “Homeland.” I wonder how he felt about “Empire’s” season finale. (People)

George Clooney rubbed meatballs on his shoes once to win the love of Einstein, a dog that he wanted to rescue. It worked, but now the dog “just thinks of me as the guy with the meatball feet,” Clooney said. (People)

Kris Humphries once went out on a date with Mary Anne Huntsman, daughter of presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman. Do with that information what you will. (Reliable Source)
