Khloe Kardashian recently gave an interview on Australian television in which she apparently refused to answer some personal questions, particularly concerning the upcoming wedding of her sister, Kim Kardashian, to rapper Kanye West. She also appeared to demur when it came to speaking about Kim and Kanye’s child, North West.
The 29-year-old Kardashian sister caused a media furor in Australia with her apparent evasiveness. Her refusal to talk about the baby North West seemed especially puzzling because the whole purpose of the Khloe interview was to plug a new line of Kardashian-branded clothing — for babies.
“Her people were a little concerned about the line of questioning we were going to take before she came on air,” executive producer Michael Pell, of the program Sunrise said. “Sam asked a question about the inspiration for the line of clothing. The range of clothing includes a baby range, so in my eyes that isn’t straying from the topic.”
Khloe Kardashian later flatly denied that she cut off the interview. She said that her satellite connection dropped.
Why would I cut an interview short because of North? Get over your self Sunrise… The call dropped… stop reaching for a story

But Sunrise, remained adamant that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star deliberately beat hasty retreat when the questioning crossed into areas she considered off limits.

Kardashian shot back, calling the Sunrise show, “so f****** desperate.”
The topic was still hot when 39-year-old former Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria did an interview on an Australian radio show recently. In the interview, she was asked about the Khloe Kardashian debacle, and Eva Longoria drew a distinction between actual actors like herself and reality TV stars, the latter of whom she said, have a lowered expectation of privacy when it comes to media scrutiny.
“There’s definitely things that are off-limits and shouldn’t be asked [but] I think it is different for a reality star than it is for an actor,” Longoria said, on the radio program. “An actor goes out and acts and does work, certain things are left to be private. Reality stars are kind of living out their lives, that’s why they are famous, because of the reality of their lives.”
After it was widely reported that Longoria had “slammed” Khloe Kardashian, in was the actress’s turn to join the Twitter fray and attempt to clear things up.
