Oprah interviews the entire extended Kardashian-Jenner clan (Harpo Studios)

The Kardashians have received Oprah’s official endorsement so now we can shut down any further debate about America’s First Family’s worth from here on out. Wonderful, thanks.

Less than a week after Rebel Wilson totally dismissed the Kardashians on Australian radio, Oprah went on the very same show to stick up for them.

“I interviewed the Kardashians maybe two years ago and I couldn’t believe how hard they work,” Winfrey said of the multi-hyphenate family empire. “To really create a reality series that looks like something’s actually happening, it means you have to be on all the time. So I went there to film them as a family and I couldn’t believe how hard they work, because we were there for seven hours and they were going to tape another seven hours after I left. No matter who you are, that is work.”

Last week, speaking with KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O, Pitch Perfect actress Wilson said that “what [the Kardashians] stand for is totally against what I stand for” and that she’d had the MTV VMA producers rescind an invitation to have Kendall and Kylie Jenner present at the awards show alongside her.

Wilson ended up presenting alone and, in the span of a few minutes, managed to draw the ire of the entire Black Lives Matter movement and solidify her legacy as Surprised White Girl in the background of the Best GIF of All Time.

During her interview Monday, Oprah continued to share her wisdom: “I disagree that they don’t do work — they have become their own iconic phenom, in this country and abroad. And you don’t get that by not doing some work, you just don’t.”

Great, now that that’s settled, we can officially move on from the “Kardashians aren’t famous for anything” argument.
