Katie Couric: Apology to Kim Kardashian for Statement on Family

Katie Couric has just broken her silence after Kim Kardashian posted an Instagram pic of Baby North West‘s congratulations card with a warning message.

“I’ve met Kim before and I think she’s a really sweet person,” the 56-year-old talk show host said in a statement to E! News.

Katie added, “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.”

Earlier in the day, Kim showed her displeasure with the Instagram pic after hearing what Katie had to say about her to InTouch (via Radar).

    Katie Couric just lost all credibility by apologizing to KK.Not that she had any before but now she looks like a total fool and it makes that moron KK think she’s even more special.Just goes to show you how sad and pathetic the media is in the US by supporting this trashy family and all those other whore mongering reality tv shows.

  • Amanda

    I supposed Katie was being the bigger person by apologizing, but it certainly wasn’t necessary.She did nothing wrong. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard people ask the same question whenever those people’s name comes up. In fact, I wish I had a dollar for every time I heard it.

    Good lord Katie, way to kiss ass to a nobody. Kim calling you out made Kim look like a petty child who isn’t aware that many are laughing at her behind her back and wondering why she’s famous. Now because she called you out on her Twitter, you are going to back track and apology. Screw you. You had the upper hand in this situation and you just lost. Way to go.

  • WWP

    Now that Couric has decided to kiss the ass of that media HO Kardashian she has lost any credibility or respect.

  • Verity

    Katie did not say anything wrong, she simply stated truth. I would like the Kardashians to answer the questions; Why are they famous?

  • Lauren

    No need to apologize to a tantrum. Especially when she said nothing wrong.

  • kami

    poor kim kartrashian must know how much ppl don’t like them and feels inferior. that’s why she jumped the gun and did her stupid tweet. katie said nothing derogatory. everyone wonders why that trashy family is famous.

  • Alaric

    why is the kardashian family so revered?! i wish someone would say something against them and have enough balls to keep with it. they are trash with no talent

  • Jessie

    If Kim is close enough to Katie that she got a gift from her, why didn’t she just contact her instead of going on social media to complain. People have forgotten how to talk each and settle disputes, which probably as innocent as Katie said, without letting the world know.

  • Athena

    Babies are sweet blessings, no matter who the parents are. Katie recognized that and congratulated them. That’s all, Kim needs to get over herself and take note for her future representation.

  • anonymous

    Does anyone even watch Katie? She’s a tired out old hag who needs to retire. Give someone else a chance.

  • Danae

    I don’t get it – why is everybody so paranoid about hurting Kim’s feelings? Do they care that much about other celebrities when they mock them? Nope. Kardashians are trash and people have to stop glorifying them.

  • lucy222

    I’m not a Kim fan, but she called Katie out on being phony. Acting one way in your face then being different behind your back. Katie is kissingass becasue she wants Kim on her show at some point. That is what she is doing. Jennifer Aniston said something very snotty about Katie too so I guess it is in the air. Katie has been kissing Aniston’s ass for years. Now she sees that it just didn’t pay off..Don’t like any of these phony women

    Katie is cool she called a spade a spade beaches

  • ivy

    Katie had nothing to apologize for. She simply honestly answered a question in an interview. The truth is Kim and her whole family really have NO talent. They are famous because Kris is really good at pimping family and uses every opportunity to get publicity. It all started with Kim’s gross porn tape and fo rwhatever reason, tha family has developed a fanbase from that. My quesion is , what are these “fans” fans of?? Again, no talent and lots of craziness, materialism and ego. Why would anyone be a fan of that??

    Just because someone does not understand your fame does not mean they hate you.

  • British Latin American
