Last Thursday on Katie Couric’s talk show, Katie, she slammed the Kardashians by saying that she doesn’t know what Kim’s even famous for and that mostly it’s teenage girls who care about what she’s doing. In an interview with Intouch magazine, Katie’s direct quotes were: “I don’t understand-why are they so famous?” and ”I think it’s mostly teenage girls that are interested.”
The reality star and new mother took to Instagram to convey a message to the journalist on Friday. Kardashian posted a photo of a card from Couric congratulating her and boyfriend Kanye West on the birth of their daughter, North West. Apparently the gesture didn’t sit well with Kim.
News broke that Kim was reeling after catching wind of Katie’s comments and today she got her revenge by blasting Katie by posting a picture to Instagram of a baby’s romper with a gift message reading:
“Dear Kim and Kanye, congrats on the birth of your baby girl as the moth [mother of the hour]! And may I humbly suggest you stick to the K tradition for na [new addition]. Kindly, Katie Couric.”
Note: Katie’s gift message is cut off, it was a printing error. The message was delivered that way.
Underneath the picture Kim responded with a series of hashtags “I Hate fake Media Friends” and “May I Humbly Suggest You Not Send Gifts Then Talk Sh-t” Leading us to believe that the gift was sent after the birth of North in May and not after she talked about them on Thursday.
Still, it’s not like Katie said anything really terrible about the Kardashian family. What is Kim truly famous for? Katie, as a journalist, has interviewed the likes of Beyonce, the President, and Elton John, does Kim really consider herself as famous?
Katie Couric responded to Kim’s instagram saying …
“I’ve met Kim before and I think she’s a really sweet person. 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.”
As for the gift, Katie says … “The gift is genuine, and I’m happy for Kim and Kanye.”
