Did Barbara Walters Diss Kim Kardashian and Kanye West?

Celebrity Sightings In New York City - November 25, 2013Barbara Walters named Kim Kardashian and Kanye West among her "10 Most Fascinating People" this year, but during her monologue about the couple, it kind of


Kim Kardashian and Kanye West made Barbara Walters' final list of the year's "Most Fascinating People," but not for the reasons you might think.

In fact, the whole thing is sort of a backhanded compliment, when you listen to the reason why they landed on the list.

"Kanye, as he has often pointed out has many talents, as for Kim, well she's very good at being herself," the 84-year-old explained.

...and she was just getting started!

"He fell in love with her beauty when she was pop singer Brandy's personal assistant, but when did she fall for him?" she continued, as images of his antics flashed across the screen. "Was it the time he insulted Taylor Swift? ...Or the moment he insulted George W. Bush? ...Or the time he threw a punch at a paparazzo? Who knows... Love is a mystery."

This isn't the first time Barbara has thrown shade toward the Kardashians.

When she put the famous family on her "Most Fascinating People" list in 2011, Barbara held nothing back as she sat face-to-face with the famous family and declared: "You don't really act; you don't sing; you don't dance. You don't have any -- forgive me -- any talent."

Still, we think this year's diss might even upstage that one, because let's face it, that one isn't exactly original.
