Katie Couric to Kim K.

I'm Sawwwy

I Don't Hate Your Family

Katie Couric insists her baby gift to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West was not a fake Hollywood gesture -- and says her comments about Kim's family were taken out of context.

Kim put Katie on blast today when she Instagrammed a pic of Katie's gift and card with the hashtag #IHateFakeMediaFriends.

Kim was pissed because Katie recently said in an interview that she didn't understand why the Kardashians are famous.

Now Katie's explaining the comment, saying ... "I've met Kim before and I think she's a really sweet person.  I was responding to a reporter's question, and explaining how I'm intrigued by the public's fascination with her family."

She added, "I didn’t mean to hurt her feelings."

As for the gift, Katie says ... "The gift is genuine, and I'm happy for Kim and Kanye."

We're guessing Katie can still expect something in the mail.

First of all this is not "breaking news" and secondly why she is backing down?? Everything she said is the truth. Don't be afraid of this slapper. Kim Kartrashian get over yourself you whore and remember where you came from. You might be rich and popular now but its because your a nasty ass who let some D lister anal **** and piss all over you. You are pure trash and you will never be classy EVER doesn't matter who your with. Its the poor baby I feel sorry for having a porn star mother and a jackass embarrassment as a father. The only reason shes responding and acting like this is so she can get attention she has fallen of the radar and trying to get her name out there again. Your a mother now grow the **** up you selfish bitch and concentrate on your baby not how much your being talked about in the press. This creature is beyond disgusting and doesn't deserve to have a baby.

I'm sorry a woman of Katie's calibre felt the need to lower herself to actually reply to such narcissistic, self-important, immature, petulant INSTAGRAM post.

Kim didn't even have the class to reply privately. She's such an arrogant b*tch. Katie, you should have simply stayed above it and never sent another gift for the next 15 Kim K will pop out to ensure high child support payments from Kanye when he skips on her ass.

Katie was right in her first statement and should not have backed down...I am so tired of this "TRASH" of a family...Why do people watch their show, buy their products???? This is a bunch of people who think they are better than everyone else...Boycott them...and then maybe they will crawl under the rock where they belong...

Why would anyone apologize to this woman? She had a freakin fake wedding, took everyone's gifts, blew Kris out the window, and didn't look back. This whole family is fake.

Its obvious that Katie never saw Kim's porn tape, that her mother marketed that put the family on the map. Hadn't it been for that no one would have known who this minus a few chromosome family was

Katie shouldn't lie. One of the big questions everyone asks is why are the Kardashians famous. And who even cares about them really.

Katie spoke the truth. Why are they famous? Why do people care? But what Kim did was juvenile posting. Kim grow up and your baby daddy too.

Couric and Kardashian: two fake bitches in the middle of an worthless fight.

Why TMZ is updating us on this nonsense, we'll never know...

my 2 cents    

The only reporter with cajones when it comes to the Kardashians is Fox Philly Anchor Mike Jerrick. His interview with them is a riot.

Just another opportunity for the K family to get some publicity. My God, they must be aware of the truly terrible and nasty things people say about them. Katie's statement was utterly harmless. If Kim were really so sensitive, she woukd have blown her brains out years ago!

Just like I said last week:


"You know you're on top - when even the Kennedy's and da Katie Couric's -?"


Are running you down.


It's like Eminem's old "8 Mile" CD:


"Gotta call our my name and it get ye some fans."
