"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'."
