"But to create a reality series where it looks like something is happening all the time, you have to be on it all the time.

"We were there for seven hours filming them and they were going to tape for another seven hours afterwards...That is work, no matter who you are."

Oprah's defense came after actress Rebel Wilson slammed the family for having no talent and admitted she had refused to share a stage at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) with Kendall and Kylie Jenner.

She said: "I was asked to present at the VMAs with Kendall and Kylie and said no. They're famous for no talent.
