Kim Kardashian Blasts Katie Couric As “Fake” After Sending Baby Gift Then Dissing Her

Posted on August 16th, 2013 at 12:19 pm

kimmyKim Kardashian lashed out at talk show host Katie Couric Friday after Katie this week did an interview with In Touch magazine where she questioned why the Kardashians are so famous.

Kim posted a photo of an alleged baby present from Barney's New York that Couric sent the 32-year-old new mom and boyfriend Kanye West, wishing them the best with their new baby girl.  Kim accompanied the photo with #IHateFakeMediaFriends and #MayIHumblySuggestYouNotSendGiftsThenTalkShit.  Yikes!

On Wednesday In Touch published an interview with the 56-year-old journalist where she questioned the Kardashian clan's appeal saying “I don’t understand – why are they so famous? I think it’s mostly teenage girls that are interested.”  

Kim obviously took that comment a little too personally.  Never mess with a new mama!  Especially one you send baby gifts to then diss in a magazine.

UPDATE:  Katie released this statement: "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."

      First off, there are many adult males who like Kim and possibly Kourtney too. It’s more than just the girls.

      Also, I have to ask, what has Katie Couric done? What is she, a journalist? Anybody can do that job. I’d love to know the credentials she has that makes her more qualified than a typical journalist that hasn’t made it famous. For Katie Couric to be insulting anybody for their lack of talent is a joke.

      Well most journalist are two faced, that’s their jobs. No loyality to a good story. Katie has a BA from the University of Virginia and has been a television journalist since 1979. She didn’t ask a question that hasn’t been asked numerous times. Numerous people say she’s only famous hecause of her sex tape. So if its something else people just want to know so they’ll stop saying its the sex tape. I agree with the people because before that she was just Paris Hiltons friend. No one had ever heard of her just her dad.

        What you are stating is a bunch of crap. Kim does plenty of photo shoots, therefore, she can be said to be a model. Unlike many models, she doesn’t give the idea that you have to be ultra-skinny to look great.
        Also, she is a businesswoman. Ever watched her show? She helps to run the Dash stores. She’s also got a fashion line, among other things. In fact, a couple. Lastly, since millions of people watch her show, she would be as much an “entertainer” as an actress or singer.

        Overall, she contributes more to society than most celebrities. Certainly more than Katie Couric ever has.
