Emily Post Family

Bitch Fight Over Kardashian

Wedding Gifts

Emily Post
literally wrote the book on proper wedding etiquette ... but now, her famous descendants are butting heads on what Kim Kardashian should do with her wedding gifts.

On one side, Emily's great-granddaughter-in-law Peggy Post -- who wrote an article in The New York Times just three months ago, explaining how gifts should be returned if the wedding is canceled, or if the couple "seeks to end the marriage almost immediately (say within a month or two)."

Since Kim and Kris just inched past the two month mark ... they're in the clear with Peggy.

But on the other side of the etiquette battle is Emily's great-great-granddaughter, Lizzie Post -- who told the New York Daily News, "after just 72 days, the gifts must be returned to the wedding guests."

As we previously reported, Kim is not returning the gifts -- instead, she's making a $200k donation to her favorite charity.

Sources close to Kim tell us ... KK feels the gifts were given out of love and she doesn't feel an obligation to return them to the sender. But we're told Kim understands her marriage was short, and decided the donation was a good compromise.

So WWEPD? Unclear, since she died back in 1960.

Those aren't wedding gifts. They're gifts brought for being in the presence of the Queen and her court

The mind boggles as to the waste of money this wedding generated. How many homeless/foreclosed folks could be housed and fed with just the wedding gifts, never mind the dress/party/flowers....and they wonder why the "Wall Street Protesters" are so angry?

Remember, not only is the 200K a fraction of what the pics & everything got her - but it's also a tax write off.

If you were a wedding guest, and you didn't realize that your gift was merely a "tribute" to be allowed into the party, I would guess it's your own fault. That being said, she should return the gifts or quit saying she didn't profit from the wedding.

She's cheap and greedy!
Return the gifts.
I'd be so pissed if I bought a gift for a marriage that didn't last more than 72 days.
Return the gifts to the buyers of them at once who bought them under the false pretense of a marriage + give a charity $200,000.

Why would she even want them and weren't the gifts for the both of them. I think Kris should get half of them! I am sure mamma won't have that though!! Its all about money with her.

I have a feeling she is not going to return anything and just saying this for the public. Anything to stay on record on camera.
