Kim Kardashian has had her fair share of feuds over the years, but a fight with Katie Couric? That’s definitely not a rival we were expecting for the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star. What led to this nasty spat?
You’d think that, by now, members of the Kardashian family would be used to all the media scrutiny. But it appears that a fairly innocuous statement can still set off the reality star — the perfect example of this involves a recent feud between Kim Kardashian and Katie Couric. The drama all began with a seemingly astute observation that Katie made during an interview with In Touch. When asked her opinion about the continuing success of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Katie commented, “I think it’s mostly teenage girls that are interested.”
Not a particularly offensive comment (at least, in our opinion), and yet, Kim Kardashian was incredibly unhappy with Katie Couric’s interview response. Apparently, Katie had sent Kim and Kanye a card congratulating the couple on the birth of their daughter — and Kim was upset that a supposed ‘friend’ would then speak ill of her in a tabloid interview. In order to get back at talk show host, Kim posted an Instagram picture of this card, along with a rather nasty caption that included such hash-tag statements as “#IHateFakeMediaFriends” and “#MayIHumblySuggestYouNotSendGiftsThenTalkShit.”
Like the rest of us, Katie Couric was genuinely surprised by the level of offense Kim took to a harmless statement. She explained to the New York Daily News, “I was responding to a reporter’s question, and explaining how I’m intrigued by the public’s fascination with her family.” Katie also offered a the reality star an apology: “”I didn’t mean to hurt [Kim's] feelings. The gift is genuine and I’m happy for Kim and Kanye.”
