Emily Post Family

Bitch Fight Over Kardashian

Wedding Gifts

11/2/2011 7:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Kim,You keep those gifts because you're going to need something to keep you company in the coming years. You'll die one lonely old lady.Not one man in his right mind will ever want you like a man should want a woman.I bet you cry yourself to sleep at night.You will lead a very lonely life.

she needs to return the gifts and the ring based on the sham of the marriage. if kim had ever loved humphries why blindside him when divorcing him and filing on the anniversary of their first time meeting, then running off to australia to promote their new clothing store. thats heartless and cold.

I've never commented on a tmz post before and I'm not going to bash her, but I have to say something about this ordeal. SHE SHOULD DEFINITELY RETURN THE GIFTS. It is extremely tacky and rude to assume that her guests would want her to make a donation as opposed to the money back they spent on the gift. I am all about giving to charity, but I would never accept, let's say 1,000.00 wedding gift, get divorced 2 months later and then tell the generous giver "i'm getting divorced and am keeping your gift but don't worry, i'm going to make a donation to the charity of MY CHOOSING."
WOW, that is pretty bad. i read an article once in which her ex husband damon opened up about their life together. I believe him 150%. I've never watched her show and never will. I'm just someone that loves to read TMZ on a regular basis.

Is she going to give Kris Humphries half the gifts? I'm sure the gifts were intended for BOTH of them! You can bet your butt she won't because she's a greedy wh*re!!

cynical me    

She should return them, their guests didn't give money to charity, they gave gifts to the 'newlyweds.' If they wanted to donate money, they would have. Why should Kim K. get the benefit of the gifts that I'm almost positive she won't be splitting with Kris H. She's just a greedy Bi**h.

This is a family of classless, clueless money grubbers. How can anyone expect them to do the right thing.
She, and her Mother, made money off of her porno tape. Pure trash, plain and simple!

We all know the wedding gifts were not bought at Walmart; they were expensive. Kim should return the gifts, pronto. If I had sent a gift, it would be like a slap in the face if Kim told me she wasn't giving my gift back but instead making a donation to a charity. And who gets the tax deduction for that donation? Certainly not the wedding guests.

Anyone who can fall in and out of love in 72 days is a sociopath.
