Couric sends a baby gift, then wonders aloud why the Kardashians are famous
Well, that’s one baby gift that might be going back.
Among all the well-wishes and the pile of presents Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have received since welcoming their daughter North in June, the new mom has come across one she didn’t like: pajamas from Katie Couric.
“Dear Kim and Kanye, Congratulations on the birth of your baby girl! And may I humbly suggest you continue the K tradition. Fondly, Katie Couric.”
But the seemingly sweet gesture did not go over well with the reality star, who captioned the photo, “#IHateFakeMediaFriends #MayIHumblySuggestYouNotSendGiftsThenTalkS—”
Although Kardashian has not commented on the reason behind the rift, Couric’s recent interview could be to blame. Couric said she didn’t understand why the Kardashians are famous and guessed “mostly teenage girls” are fans.
Couric later released a statement: “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. The gift is genuine, and I’m happy for Kim and Kanye.”
