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.
