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.

How stupid is this woman? What good does a charitable donation do the guests who shelled out for her sham wedding? True, most of these folks are wealthy themselves but when your marriage fails so immediately the point of giving back the gifts is to make amends to your guests for the trouble, consideration and expense they went to giving you a gift for a future situation of yours that is no longer going to happen. The fact that it is inconvenient, costly and no doubt disappointing to the failed bride is simply collateral damage. Failed brides don’t get to choose what the most palatable form of sacrifice is for them when their marriage tanks after 72 days. The point is doing right by the OTHER PEOPLE who were affected by their own lack of discernment.

It was reported that DJ Pauly D's gift alone was worth $40,000.00 in value! ALONE!!!! 200k isn't ****! How about donating EVERY PENNY you made lying to people! Oh wait, that would leave you broke and probably homeless! LIAR!

What classless trash! She has even admitted she wasn't feeling it but went ahead with wedding anyway- yeah, to get all her pretty presents in her expensive fairyland princess party (i.e. wedding). What about Kris? The gifts are for the couple not the WOMAN only for their MARRIAGE- not pretty baubles for her to covet.

I am so sick of her- how does the whole clan stay on TV and keep getting pushed down our throats! I'm sick of hearing all these spin updates from Kris Jenner- please, look at what she raised. Please get rid of media coverage of them. They are classless trash, and I have no idea why we have to keep getting subjected to hearing they are something newsworthy.

Donation = tax rebate

Bitch won't return anything, too much money to be made at tax time.

If she was a real lady she would returned the gifts, and still make the donation. She will not return them, she is not a lady. To think that my father fought for her freedom in WW2. My husband after 9/11. The whore must be related to Hitler.

You can't return gifts that you auctioned off via eBay or some other source. So, the only thing you have are proceeds from the auction. And do you think this stank ho will fork over the money? No. As far as a $200k donation, it'll be in the form of her time. So, let's say she charges $100k per for an appearance. She does an appearance for 2 hours and waives the fee. There's the $200k donation. Since she'll claim it as a charitable contribution, she'll write it off on her taxes.

Very cleaver of her contributing to a charity. Now she has a $200,000 tax write off... What is that saying, "the rich get richer"?

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? With all the real problems in the world--hunger, homelessness, illness, who gives a damn about proper wedding etiquette? Especially this family--it is so extremely sad that this family is held up as some example to follow. To me, they exemplify everything that is wrong with America today--the values are all screwed up.

That used up old slit monkey woman throws herself a freebie, money making 10 million dollar wedding, then when her stank ass gets busted for what she really is she makes a 200K donation to a charity? HA!!! To quote Marie Antoinette ... LET THEM EAT CAKE!!

Kris didn't beat her. He didn't f*ck one of her four sisters or her mother or anyone else for that matter. She didn't discover he has a past violent criminal record. He did not drain her bank account and run away to Siberia. So there are absolutely no rational grounds for a divorce other than that Kim is a pathologically fickle money grubbing c*nt.

Totally classless. She's keeping the ring. Humphries can do so much better.

Big BS, I knew it she'll get divorce soon after the wedding. And she can tell whatever she wants, but the wedding was just part of her reality show and PR

While the economy is going down the toilet, the Kardashians are flaunting money they "earned" for doing nothing but have cameras follow them as they spread their lack of values. It indeed feels like the Decline of the American Empire.

NOW would be a pretty good time for the long awaited major fault-line activity making LA sink into the Pacific.
