You know you've made it when Oprah Winfrey is singing your praises. The highly admired media maven came to the Kardashians' defense after actress Rebel Wison called them superficial and "famous for no talent." 

"I interviewed the Kardashians two years ago and I can’t believe how hard they work," Oprah said earlier this week on KIIS FM's Kyle and Jackie O Show in Australia. 

"People don’t understand that, people think, 'Oh, if a television camera’s just following you, then that’s just easy.' To really create a reality series that looks like something’s actually happening, it means you have to be on all the time." 

She continued, "We were there for seven hours and they were gonna tape another seven hours after I left. No matter who you are, that is work."
