For Khloe Kardashian, American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson isn't must-see TV. The star of E!'s Keeping Up With the Kardashians was a guest on CBS' The Late Late Show Tuesday, where host James Corden asked her "how accurate" the FX series is to her life. "It's crazy. I've seen bits and pieces of the miniseries. I know it's a phenomenal miniseries. They've done a great job. I really appreciate the way they've portrayed my father," she said of the late Robert Kardashian Sr., who was part of O.J. Simpson's legal team. "I'm very grateful for that."

Khloe hasn't "watched it fully," but her sister Kim Kardashian has seen every episode so far. "She raves about it and love sit. But, um, not all the facts are accurate," she said "Like when O.J. was contemplating suicide, it was in my room and not Kim's room. They're kind of sensationalizing the Kardashian name in it, but I think to bring the younger audience in. I'm not upset about it, but there was some scene of the kids chanting 'Kardashian' when my dad was reading the potential suicide note. I even called Kim, because I was 10. I'm like, 'Did that happen? I don't remember any of this happening? She goes, 'Absolutely not did that happen!'"


Fellow Late Late Show guest Josh Duhamel was as engrossed in the trial as the rest of the world. "I was a junior college and I literally skipped class to watch that," the 11.22.63 star said. Khloe said she had a somewhat similar experience. "I was 10 and the teachers would close down the classroom. We would all be watching it on TV," she recalled. "It was so crazy, but I mean, people were really cruel during that time. They used to key 'guilty' on my dad's car when we were at church, like walking out. It was horrible...They were incredibly mean and cruel." The reason Khloe hasn't watched the miniseries in full, she said, is that she "lived one version of it."

Khloe said she pities O.J. and Nicole Brown Simpson's kids, who were "probably getting a little bit more normalcy" in their lives before the FX series reinvigorated interest in the murder trial. She hasn't reached out to them about the show, however. "I haven't seen them in like, I don't know, I wanna say like six or seven years," she told James and Josh. "It has to be super tough."
