Katie Couric claims her baby gift to Kim Kardashian, which the reality star took her to task for, was a nice gesture, and that she never slammed Kim or her family.

Kim put Katie Couric on blast Friday when she Instagrammed a pic of the talk show host’s card and gift for little North West with the hashtag #IHateFakeMediaFriends.

She added: #MayIHumblySuggestYouNotSendGiftsThenTalkShit.

Kim Kardashian was furious with the gift, since Katie recently said in an interview that she didn’t understand why she and her family are famous.

None of us do, honestly, and Katie says this was just a true statement.

One which she said was made with no ill intent toward the Kards:


“I’ve met Kim before and I think she’s 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 is genuine, and I’m so happy for Kim and Kanye.”

Ass covering? Reasonable explanation? Beef quashed?

Like the inevitable but long-delayed release of North West photos and Kim Kardashian baby body bikini reveals, all we can do is stay tuned, THGers.
