Katie Couric Called Out

Kim K is at it again


I seem to talk about Kim Kardashian an awful lot. But to be fair, I find her whole shtick super interesting. Love her or hate her, this latest piece of gossip seems to be tables turning. 

Katie Couric recently gave an interview to In Touch where, when asked about Kim K & crew, she replied, "I don't understand. Why are they so famous? I think it's mostly teenaged girls who are interested." Well, Kim didn't take kindly to that comment, or what followed; a gift for baby North with a note that offered congratulations and a hope that they continue the K naming traditions of the Kardashian family. Seems a little two-faced, no? Kim clearly didn't like it and took a photo of the gift and note and posted it on Instagram with the hashtags #IHateFakeMediaFriends #MayIHumblySuggestYouNotTalkShitThenSendGifts. 

I'd be pissed too, to be quite honest. Katie then backtracked on the comment by giving a statement to E! saying, "I've met Kim before and she is 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 was genuine, and I'm happy for Kim and Kanye."

Nice sentiment, but I feel like maybe Katie got caught out and is backtracking like mad. 

So, spill it! What do you think of Katie's initial remark and then her backtracking comments?
