Katie Couric is speaking out about Kim Kardashian's insinuation that she's two-faced. The journalist told E! News that her gift is genuine and she didn't mean to offend Kim Kardashian when she questioned why the reality star was famous in an In Touch article.
Her remarks prompted Kim to Instagram a photo on Friday of Katie's gift for baby North West and card that read, "Dear Kim and Kanye, Congratulations on the birth of your baby girl! ... And may I humbly suggest you continue the K tradition ... Fondly, Katie Couric." She captioned it with the hashtags #IHateFakeMediaFriends and #MayIHumblySuggestYouNotSendGiftsThenTalkS--t.
"I've met Kim before and I think she's a really sweet person," Katie said in a statement. "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."
Sister Khloé Kardashian had applauded Kim's post, tweeting, "God I love this new side of u!" Kanye seems to be rubbing off on her.
