Kim Kardashian Gets Lame Apology for Katie Couric’s Nasty Little Insult

kim and katieWho could blame Kim Kardashian for being peeved at Katie Couric? The newswoman made a nasty comment about the Kardashians to In Touch, then later sent a gift to baby North West as if she and Kim were BFFs. Clearly realizing her faux pas, Katie issued an apology, but if you ask me, it's too little too late.

When asked why she thought the reality TV clan was so famous, she quipped, "I don't understand -- why are they so famous? I think it's mostly teenage girls that are interested." Ouch. She has some nerve.

I’m not saying she’s wrong for her opinion -- many of us marvel at the Kardashian fame and how the hell they attained it by basically doing nothing but shop and bitch about each other. It's actually quite fascinating. But you can’t diss someone PUBLICLY and then pretend to be their buddy. Who does Katie think she is -- A Real Housewife of New Jersey?

In response to the mini scandal, Katie sent 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.

Oh please! That is not an apology. That's getting caught with egg on your face and trying to weasel your way out of it. If she doesn't like or respect the girl -- that's her right. It's a free country and she's entitled to her opinion. But don't ass kiss the next day. That just makes you look bad, Katie. Really bad. Kim should mail that insincere gift back to sender.

Do you think Katie's apology was sincere?

Why should she apologize at all? Who is KK anyway? It's not like Katie has to depend on her for her show to continue. Katie is right to ask why they are famous.

You are full of shit on this one. She was asked a question, she responded stating she doesn't know why they are SO famous. And she's probably right, it's likely teen girls watching their reality show and buying their make up. If anything, Kim was tacky as hell tweeting about it. Accept the gift and shut up about it.

Kim was rude to put any king of GIFT on blast.. She is such a trashy person.

Stop kissing the Kardashian's *ss! she didn't even deserve an apology.

I don't think she's owed an apology for anything and I think Kim was in poor taste tweeting about the gift. 

hello... hellokd87

I don't really see anything wrong with her comment except for the teenager part. I'm not a teenager and I watch their show & buy their makeup. I know many grown women that admire them!!! It's not Kim, it's the hormones. :-P

so the truth is okay unless if upsets a Kardashian?

This "feud" is the stupidest crap ever. Katie Couric was asked a question and she said what every other reporter is thinking. She just had the guts to do it. And she didn't even say anything mean! Katie gave Kim a gift and KIm acted like a brat. What kind of person does something like that when someone gives them a baby gift?? Just say thank you and end it! What Kim did as a result of the gift was petty, immature, and ungrateful.
