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.

Talk about ungrateful. Most people just say thank you when they receive a gift.

What a coincidence! Just like the lady who called in to TMZ Live, saying she heard Katie say all these bad things about her guests.

I too was at a resultant but sitting beside Kris Jenner. And you should of heard the bad things she was saying about her guests.

See how that works!

This whole situation has done NOTHING but point out to even more people what a useless piece of trash Kim K. is. For some reason, its featured most national news outlets and all comments ( as they should be ) are pointing out her trashiness?

Should you be a "celebrity" when your ONLY talent is swallowing?

I can't understand why Katie is backing down for telling the truth, It's obvious Mamma K. is paying the tabloids to put her slutty kids on the covers every week to do***ent their every fart/burp etc.when the public has no interest. in their talentless/brainless and slutty ways. Shame not only on Mamma K. but also the tabloids and sites like TMZ for promoting these girls who have NO talents worthy of being promoted. No wonder Europeans think Americans are tacky and low-class.

I find its funny that KK would even think she's important enough to be Katie Couric's "friend".. Just because KC has talked to her before, doesnt mean they are BFF's now. KK should appreciate the fact that actual famous people who have worked their whole lives to become known, are even acknowledging her or the birth of her kid.. KK is a nobody in the real world of famous people..

Note to Katie: Kim is famous because she made a sex tape and is proud of it. That's about all there is to her fame, well, except for that K show which is the most incredible bunch of ignorance on TV.
