Kim Kardashian is not a happy Kardashian camper at the moment. For someone who lives their life in constant view of the public, she’s forgotten the first rule of celebrity “Don’t trust all the press, they are not your friends!” Her anger at the “trojan horse” gift from turncoat friend Katie Couric was apparent on Twitter after Couric “dissed” Kim and the entire Kardashian clan in an interview.
Apparently the 56 year-old controversial talk show host responded to a reporter’s question about the Kardashians with a statement that really irritated Kim. Katie reportedly talked about how she could not fathom why the Kardashians were famous.
According to a source close to the 34 year-old mother of Baby North, Kim isn’t best pleased, The source said, “Kim is so tired of people publicly bashing her yet kissing her ass behind closed doors.” But you do not have to take the source’s word for it, you can look at the reality star’s Twitter account.
The card that Katie Couric sent with the baby North trojan horse prezzie ends with the phrase, “And may I humbly suggest you continue the K tradition.” It is this little “added” note of support which presumably helped Kim Kardashian get really angry.
Couric spoke to Us Weekly and said, “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. I didn’t mean to hurt her feelings. The gift is genuine, and I’m happy for Kim and Kanye.”
But is Kim really angry, or is this little “swipe” at Couric just her way of generating more publicity for her reality television show and all its various “offshoots?” There is an old adage in Hollywood that goes, “All publicity is good publicity.” It makes perfect sense for Kardashian to be “outraged” at the apparent turncoat nature of Couric’s bearing a gift and to take the media knife and plunge it deep into Kim’s back.
Not wanting to jump too quickly to Couric’s defense, but, her gift for young North’s baby shower “do” was done, because that is what one does for baby showers. Especially ones for celebrities who are “good copy” and may need to be interviewed someday.
Unfortunately, Katie forgot the other golden rule of celebrity, when a “journalist” falls into the ranking or “celeb” they must be careful of what they speak, it can (and did) come back to “bite them in the butt.”
To be far to Ms Couric, she hasn’t just gotten Kim Kardashian’s back up, she also irritated the hell out the usually good natured Jennifer Aniston.
When Jennifer was a guest on her gal pal Chelsea Handler’s talk show, Chelsea Lately, the host told Aniston that Couric had asked about Aniston’s wedding to fiance Theroux. Jennifer then said, “What’s Katie Couric? Is she a legitimate journalist? Is she getting tabloidy? Wasn’t she on the Today show?”
The controversial Katie Couric may not be Greek, but Kim Kardashian should beware of anyone bearing gifts that appear to be of a “trojan horse” nature. Then she can save her anger for something else, like the president slamming her reality TV lifestyle.
