While she was on the air, Kardashian West talked a little bit about her famous family and how different their real lives are from how the headlines tend to portray them.

Kardashian West said about 10 percent of what's reported about her is true and added, "If I lived that life, it'd be very exciting."

Other things she opened up about? She and husband Kanye West never intentionally sleep in separate beds, but their bed is so big they can each have their own space. She also hopes that her currently strained relationship with Caitlyn Jenner is just a phase because they're family.

Kardashian West also debuted her interviewing skills for the first time, sitting down with former Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane and country music singer Kellie Pickler. Everything went off without a hitch, so we can't help but wonder if Kardashian West is eyeing a role in talk-show hosting. Her fame would kind of make her a natural fit for it, right?

Plus, she already has the support base. Kardashian West's fans flocked to Twitter to show their support and gush over her performance on Live.
