Was Kim Kardashian Right To Slam Katie Couric?

Most Hollywood feuds make sense. They involve people of the same age or in the same field. More often, they involve former lovers or former friends or former bandmates. This one, however, comes out of left field. Apparently, Kim Kardashian and Katie Couric are friendly acquaintances, or at least they used to be before the latter decided to bash the former in this week’s In Touch. Now, all hell has broken loose, and the tensions don’t show any signs of subsiding.
Apparently, the two women are close enough that after the birth of North West, Katie sent over a gift from Barney’s along with a cute little note of congratulations. At the time, Kim clearly took it as a gesture of friendship. After taking one look at Katie’s little quote, however, she now thinks it was pretty damn insulting, and she wants the whole world to know it.
Here’s a look at Katie’s back-handed slap…
"I don’t understand — why are they so famous? I think it’s mostly teenage girls that are interested."
Kim isn’t typically the type of girl to take things lightly, and she did nothing to disprove that reputation with her response today. Instead of acting above the comment or tackling it indirectly, she decided to address it head on by taking to her Instagram account and posting a picture of the gift Katie sent, as well as some pretty vicious hashtags.
Here’s a look at the picture…
And here’s a look at the accompanying hashtags…
Katie isn’t exactly the type of woman who creates many ugly headlines or finds herself in the middle of much drama. Her interviews are typically good-hearted and honest, but if you ask me, she got exactly what she deserved here. Bashing someone you’re supposed to be friendly with for no apparent reason in an unrelated interview is poor form on a lot of levels. There’s nothing wrong with saying “no comment”, and there’s nothing wrong with lying either. Even if she genuinely thinks Kim and company are talentless hacks, that doesn’t mean she can’t like them on a personal level.
If you ask some of Kim’s critics, however, Katie isn’t wrong. The Kardashian family doesn’t offer anything in the way of singing talent or acting talent, and since the two women aren’t really close friends, there’s no reason why she should have been forbidden from speaking openly. After all, sending one wedding gift doesn’t guarantee long-lasting friendship.
