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.

Hey I hope the IRS is paying close attention to this...gifts are considered income..so if the woman is keeping them...I would suggest that everyone who bought a gift..tell the irs what you spent..she will owe for the taxes on it anything that is above her allotted amount..and since Mr. Obama doesn't particularly like the Kardashians....let Kim talk she is just digging a bigger hole for herself to get out of...oh yeah my "intuition" told me never to watch or buy anything Kardashian

The bitch will remarry again soon. Say shes in love with the man (whens shes only in love with money). Divorce again soon. Make money off of everything again and again. I guess Kris was to small for her big ASSets.

How stupid -- she should return them. The wedding was all about her though - she'll have many fond moments with them, thinking back how she got her fairytale wedding and s it canned it.

I'd be happy to tell Kim where to stick the gifts, her ring, and every one of the Kardashian bullsh*t reality shows.

Do yourself, your brain and your wallet a favor, stop watching the Kardashians!!

First off she needs to make her yearly donation to somewhere for tax purposes. That being said it has nothing to do with returning the gifts, she's deflecting. Second, I recall hearing from an expert on proper manners that everything should be done regarding the wedding...thank you notes...etc within the first year of the marrage and if the marrage doesn't make it through the first year the gifts should be returned especially if the thank you cards hadn't even been sent out. She profeted of this wedding so freaking much it is amazing! It is also insulting to all of us that we are expected to not see the scam. Unbelievable! And ya know the worst part? She is gonna get away with it all and end up richer than ever.

Nooo she didint    

And then she'll get a nice big tax break off of the $200k that will off set the money she made for the wedding. Not for nothing, that's smart for an sex video bimbo.

Oh and this is why I usually wait for a while before sending any "happy couple" a present ever. Call me a skeptic. Don't care.

Return the gifts pronto...This charity donation in lieu of returning gifts is a joke since you can write-off the donation on your income taxes at the expense of your guest.Seriously, this is taking greed over the top..
