Katie Couric was quick to answer Kim Kardashian’s charge of being called a “fake media friend” for saying she didn't know why the Kardashians were so famous. Kim had snapped back on Instagram earlier today for that remark by Couric, according to ET on Aug. 16.
Capsule summary: Katie Couric sent Kim Kardashian and Kanye West a baby gift for little Nori (North West). The note accompanying the gift said, “Kim and Kanye, Congratulations on the birth of your baby girl! And may I humbly suggest you continue the K tradition.”
Kim shot back on Instagram with a photo of the gift.
The response didn't seem quite appropriate until it was discovered that Katie Couric had recently made a remark in reference to the Kardashians. "I don't understand—why are they so famous?" Up until today, the two women seemed to have a friendly relationship.
Katie came back with an answer fairly quickly. "I've met Kim before and I think she's a really sweet person," Couric said in a statement to E! News.
"I was responding to a reporter's question, and explaining how I'm intrigued by the public's fascination with her family. I didn't mean to hurt her feelings. The gift is genuine, and I'm happy for Kim and Kanye."
Kim’s little sister, Khloe Kardashian, put in her two cents with, “God I love this new side of u!”
Hopefully, this will heal the breach between Kim and Katie. Only time will tell.
