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.

It is proper etiquette to return gifts, especially the expensive ones Kim kardashian demanded her guests bring her.


But money does not buy class, and she worked hard producing this sham made-for-TV wedding, so she's not gonna give anything up

Umm, yeah so she's gone away to sell more crap. Thinking if she throws the people a bone by saying she's going to donate. Give me a break. Me and my friends have decided NEVER to watch there show again and note of any companies who decide to have them endorse your product, we will NEVER buy your product if they are connected in any way!!!!!

Idiots    

These gifts have been used for 2 months now. Who would want their used toaster or towels back? Unless it was something of importance, like a family heirloom, keep that **** as a reminder of your stupidity!

Why is the press not mentioning that she will take the tax deduction, so it isn't an altruistic gesture at all.

Please, Kim is not returning any gifts nor is she donating anything for charity. These people are all about the money regardless of who they hurt, they just don't care. Karma is waiting for them. First they rip off their fans with that fake credit card with all the hidden fees and then claim they didn't know about the hidden fees. Now their trash mother is writing a book claiming she could have saved Nicole. Anything for money.

200K? She made 10 million on the wedding, and that doesn't include the wedding gifts she received. Anyone tha*****ches or buys anything having to do with this family is doing the entire world a dis-service. Small wonder people think Americans are stupid.

This is just further proof that her marriage WAS a sham and nothing more than a scheme to get more 'stuff' and more money.
-
They made MILLIONS off the wedding - despite their claim they didn't make a dime (oh really - and w/o making any money for it - could you have TRULY afforded a $10M wedding? Nope!)
-
They (really only Kim) got probably hundreds of thousands of dollars of lavish wedding gifts. Kim's solution? She's keeping them ALL and giving a measly $200K to some charity thinking that makes it all even.

YOU GREDDY, FAMEWHORING B**CH! JUST STFU & DISAPPEAR! YOU ARE ONE OF THE MOST HATED WOMEN IN AMERICA RIGHT NOW!!!!

nice on K's part. Considering now that she donated $200K in HER name and which results in LOWER TAXES due to a larger Charitable Donation.

Will the fun never stop.

Starting early on "Stupidest post of the day" I see. Beyond the pointlessness of this article, I don't see how they are in conflict at all. In fact I'm sure both of them would agree in this case.
