Oprah Winfrey to join Kim, Khloe on Team Kardashian

Updated: June 27, 2012 2:19PM

Who’d have thunk it? But yes, it’s true. Oprah Winfrey and the infamous Kardashians have become BFFs.

(Hope Gayle King doesn’t get jealous!)

As first reported by Us Weekly — and now confirmed by Winfrey’s spokeswoman — the longtime queen of daytime TV is going to appear on an upcoming episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”

According to a source close to Winfrey, the television mogul “truly did bond with the Kardashians” when they taped their two-part appearance on Winfrey’s OWN network.

While Oprah loved Khloe’s humor in particular, she connected with all of the women in the family who taped those two programs.

“In particular she was intrigued by Kim and how she has expanded that Kardashian brand — both for herself and for the entire family,” said the source.

“Of course, Kris Jenner’s brilliance in originally creating and marketing the Kardashian brand also impressed Oprah.”

Bill Zwecker will have more about the Winfrey-Kardashian connection in Thursday’s column.
