With all the drama surrounding them this year, the Kardashians have got a spot in Barbara Walters' 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011 list. After ABC unraveled a number of popular people making it into the list, Kim Kardashian took to her blog and shared, "We love Barbara, and are incredibly honored to be a part of her special!"

"Every year Barbara Walters chooses her most fascinating people for her annual special on ABC, and this year she picked our family!" so the 31-year-old, whose estranged husband Kris Humphries is seeking annulment, wrote. "We sat down with Barbara for a family interview that will air on 'Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of the Year'."

According to the Alphabet, Kate Middleton's younger sister Pippa Middleton will also get the spotlight. Joining her in the list are pop star Katy Perry, "Modern Family" on-screen couple Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet, New York Yankees Captain Derek Jeter, business tycoon Donald Trump and "The X Factor (US)" judge Simon Cowell.

"Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of the Year" will air on ABC on Wednesday, December 14 at 9:30 P.M. ET. By the end of the 90 minute-long program, the No. 1 most fascinating person for 2011 will be unveiled. Last year's list included Justin Bieber, Sandra Bullock and "Jersey Shore" cast with Gen. David Petraeus coming out on top.

And to think there was a time when Barbara Walters was something of a lightweight but still semi-serious journalist, or at least tried to keep up appearances. Every time you think she's scraped the bottom of the barrel she finds a way to dip a little lower.

So by "fascinating" they mean most likely to pull an audience?
