Rebel Wilson Accuses Kardashians of "Smear Campaign"

On November 4th, Rebel Wilson told Australia radio DJs Kyle and Jackie O that she denied a request to present at the MTV VMAs alongside Kylie and Kendall Jenner.

You know what?  Wilson's reasons were fair.

"It’s not that I hate any of them individually, but it’s just that everything they stand for is against everything I stand for. And they’re not famous for talent. I worked really hard to get where I’ve gotten to," she explained.

What Wilson wasn't prepared for was not only backlash from Kardashian fans, but a rebuttal from Oprah Winfrey, who appeared on Kyle and Jackie O earlier this week.

When asked about Wilson's comments, Winfrey referenced her interview with the Kardashians back in 2013.

"I went to film them as a family and I couldn’t believe how hard they worked," Winfrey said.  "We were there for seven hours and they were gonna tape another seven hours after I left. No matter who you are, that is work." 

Last night, Wilson went on the defense, accusing the Kardashians of launching a "smear campaign."

Oy.

"I'd be very happy to debate the Kardashians anywhere / anytime / any topic," Wilson tweeted.

"Or maybe their publicist can just stop the smear campaign against me because I made one prompted comment about them on Australian radio?

"In any event, I'm MORE than over this little thing and wish the K clan well X even sent them flowers."

Argggh, you were so close to being the bigger person here, Wilson.  You could have stood by your declaration (Winfrey would have been proud of you for sticking to your guns).

Instead, you're looking for sympathy and playing the victim card, which is so beneath you.  

Hollywood is one big PR machine, and some camps are more vicious than others.  It's the nature of the beast, and one you're just going to have to deal with.
