Kim Kardashian has kept mostly quiet since becoming a mother, only really taking to social media to wish her loved ones a happy birthday or thank her fans for support.

Or, apparently, to tear Katie Couric a new one.

Kim Kardashian Slams Katie Couric

In an interview with In Touch this month, Couric was asked about the Kardashians and wondered aloud why they're famous, adding: "I think it's mostly teenage girls that are interested."

This comment didn't sit very well with Kim.

She posted a photo today on Instagram of Couric's gift for North West, along with the reporter's message, and included with it two of her own, hashtag style:

In an interview with Howard Stern that is sure to make his wife extremely pleased, Today host Matt Lauer says Katie Couric is "very attractive."

Like 9-out-of-10 hot. Maybe even 10-out-of-10!

Guess that on-air chemistry that produced years and years of ratings wins - ones that seem like a distant memory for maligned Matt now - was real.

“She’s a very attractive woman, not only physically but her personality,” Lauer gushed of his former co-host. “If she’s a 9 or 10 physically, she’s a 14 overall."

"Because ... she’s just got a great personality. She’s fun.”

We have no doubt. But down boy. Cold shower time.

In an interview this week with Howard Stern, Katie Couric acknowledged a return to The Today Show has at least been broached between her and her former bosses.

The talk shot host worked alongside Matt Lauer for years and the morning program never really recovered from her departure, dropping to record-low ratings over the past few months.

"There were some cautious overtures to me to possibly come back to the Today Show but then they sort of evaporated," Couric told Stern.

Katie Couric has perfected the art of easy conversation on TV.

Easy, nutritious meals for her kids? That's more challenging.

One ingredient that's always the menu, however? Milk.

"When you're adding milk to your breakfast you're getting all sorts of added benefits," says the talk-show host in a new ad with girls Ellie, 21, and Carrie, 17.

"You're getting protein when you put it in your cereal," observes Katie, a paid spokesperson for the National Milk Mustache "Got Milk?" campaign.

Manti Te'o will finally face the world this Thursday, as the Notre Dame linebacker has agreed to his first on-camera interview since the Lennay Kekua hoax broke on the January 24 installment of Katie.

The Heisman Trophy runner-up spoke to ESPN on Friday, insisting he played NO role in the scheme.

But this sit-down, which will include Manti's parents, will mark his first televised Q&A since the perplexing story was broken in a Deadspin article a few days ago.

Katie Couric makes a major, stunning admission on her talk show today:

The former CBS Evening News anchor struggled with an eating disorder as a teenager.

In an taped interview that will air across the country this afternoon, Couric sits down with Demi Lovato - whose troubled past is well-documented - and admits that she can relate to all Lovato has gone through.

“I wrestled with bulimia all through college and for two years after that,” Couric tells her audience. “And I know this rigidity, this feeling that if you eat one thing that’s wrong, you’re full of self-loathing and then you punish yourself, whether it’s one cookie or a stick of gum that isn’t sugarless, that I would sometimes beat myself up for that."

Katie Couric sexed up her talk show Monday in honor of Erika Leonard, a.k.a. Fifty Shades of Grey author E L James, and not just with sensual crimson lighting.

Couric herself drew cheers when she appeared at the top of the hour in a sleeveless black leather dress and sky-high stilettos - to Rihanna's "S&M," obvi.

"Relax - this won't hurt at all," the host joked, introducing herself as our "mistress" for the day ... we should be so lucky. As for her guest of honor?

EL James is a shy, normal-looking lady in her 40s who speaks softly and is just about the total opposite of who you would expect wrote the bestseller.

James, as shocked as anyone by all the attention her work is getting, was asked who she'd pick to star in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

She was coy about this query, saying only that she has three unnamed actors and four actresses in mind for who should play Christian and Ana. Hmm.

According to Katie's Facebook polls, fans would love Gilmore Girls' Alexis Bledel and Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder ... Matt Bomer is also a popular pick.

Who would you like to see in the lead roles? Tell us below, and follow the jump for a clip of James answering fan questions on yesterday's Katie ...

Discussing her new show Katie and which celebrities she'd like to interview, Katie Couric made some surprisingly candid remarks about one in particular.

"I think it would be interesting to interview Kate Middleton because she has comported herself so well since she has been thrust in the limelight," she said.

However, she added, "I think she needs to eat more because she’s so thin.”

  • Gorgeous Kate Middleton
  • Skinny Kate Middleton

Royal sources consistently reiterate that there is no problem with Kate's dietary habits, yet speculation and discussion about Kate's slender frame persist.

Some even think it may be at least part of the reason that the newlyweds have yet to become pregnant, despite their expressed desire to start a family.

It is not clear why Couric - who was granted exclusive access to the Royals for her ABC News Special - would have made the extraordinary comments.

She surely meant no harm, but the weight topic is a sensitive one to say the least at the palace, especially given Princess Diana's battle with bulimia.

Kate Middleton is not bulimic, obviously, and even seems to have put on (a little) weight in the past few weeks, though she remains naturally thin.

The palace has not yet responded to Couric's comments. What do you think? Is she out of line? Leave a comment and vote in the survey below:

Kate Middleton: Too Thin?
