Kim Kardashian is Pissed Off at Katie Couric

Early this week, journalist Katie Couric sent a baby gift to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to celebrate the birth of their daughter, North West.  The note that accompanied the gift congratulated the reality star on the birth of her first child and encouraged her to “continue the K tradition,” a reference to Kim and her sisters, Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie, Kendall and her mother, Kris Jenner.  Katie Couric then gave an interview to InTouch Magazine and questioned the Kardashian phenomena.  Couric said that she didn’t understand why the Kardashians were famous and posited that it was mostly teenage girls that were interested in them.  Kim was pissed enough to respond to Couric’s statement via her Instagram.

Kim posted a picture of some baby clothes along with Couric’s personal note.  Underneath it she wrote the following hashtags, #IHateFakeMediaFriends #MayIHumblySuggestYouNotSendGiftsThenTalk(Bleep).

Couric stands by her statement and asserted that she didn’t intend to insult the reality star or the rest of the Kardashian clan.  She said that she was simply responding to a question posed to her by a reporter.  Couric further added, “The gift is genuine, and I’m happy for Kim and Kanye.”

Other members of the Kardashian clan have been in the news this week.  Yesterday, the eldest Kardashian sister, Kourtney, revealed that DNA results proved that her long time boyfriend, Scott Disick, is indeed the father of her three year old son, Mason.  Kourtney has been in the news recently after Michael Girgenti filed legal action requesting a DNA test and joint custody of Mason, whom he claims he fathered after a brief fling with Kourtney back in 2009.

Earlier this week, Kris Jenner, the mother of the Kardashian clan, used her talk show to respond to comments that President Obama made about the Kardashians and Kanye West during an interview with David Blum for the Kindle Singles program.  Obama mentioned that today’s youth were kept abreast of the purchasing habits of celebrities through various social media accounts.  Kris Jenner interpreted Obama’s comments as an insult and fired back, “I find it so odd that he’s picking on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Well, Kanye West, first of all, doesn’t go on vacation.  Ever . . .And Kim Kardashian is the hardest-working young lady in the world. She never sleeps, she never stops, she never slows down and works so hard for what she’s got.”

Kim Kardashian has been in seclusion since the birth of daughter, North West, 8 weeks ago.  Her post on Instagram in response to Katie Couric was her first social media post since she became a mother.

    I lost respect for Couric along time ago when she acted like she was better then everyone else on the Today Show, which is when Lauer started acting just as cockey so I stopped watching the show completely. I like people who are real, act real and come across that way and the only one that did was Ann Curry. I loved her for just being her and they screwed her which is why the show has lost a lot of ratings and will continue to. I watch CNN mostly all the time and some local stuff.

    The Kardashians/Jenners are famous because they worked hard to make it. They wanted it bad enough and had the $ to give them the start they needed and you can’t be angry at people for going after a dream and succeeding. Anyone who wants something bad enough can go after it. Sometimes it takes someone to help, for example I went through horrific Child Abuse for 17 yrs by my own father, and it destroyed my body to such a degree that at 37 was permanently disabled and Ina wheelchair, aside from the spinal problems, it destroyed my body. I have had 25 surgeries and require more due to what he did to me. My mother stood by, knowing what he was doing to her 3 little girls and DID NOTHING, even though she had a wealthy family who would have gotten us out of there. I want to write a book about my life and due to my disabilities need a laptop that is light and I can speak into, as I can’t use left hand, had 3 bones removed from wrist, can only use right hand, but only short times as it was crushed at 11, due to my father making me help him lift 800 pound piece of concrete and steel in our back yard (long story), so I require a computer I can speak in to and use a touch screen to do things, and the right programs/applications. People think writing a book is easy, but when you are disabled, that all changes. I barely get enough from Disability to buy food, and have a 15 year old taken at 32 weeks, with the doctor saying he was so sorry that he miscalculated the numbers in her Brain. Now she has to undergo Brain Surgery to fix Congenital Hydrocephalus which has also caused her to have learning disabilities.

    What I’m trying to point out is that everyone forgot that we need to forgive and help one another, that we are all descendants of Noah, which makes us all related by DNA. I pray every day that something will happen, to give me the chance to help others with my book, because I know it will. I am a survivor and will never forget that we are all God’s children, and that to help anyone from your heart, is a Blessing. I have been so very blessed that I have lived and I thank our Lord every day that I wake up and am able to take a breath.

    Some people are born into fame and some have to work hard to attain it, but whatever anyone chooses to do, no one has the right to judge. Only God can judge, and people seem to have forgotten. Go back to the Bible, and read it again and again and put HIM at the head of the table and your life will be blessed. He wants us to come back to HIM because we want to, and Satan wants us to forget and go to war and fight and cause our minds to anger easily, to question our Lord and Saviour if things don’t go our way, but you can’t let him in. Only by us uniting with God, will Satan be defeated.

    If you think that famous people don’t have the same kinds of problems we have you are wrong. They might have a larger bank account, but if you look at statistics, they have worse problems then the average person so don’t ever sin and covet what they have because your just trading one set of problems for others. Be happy and thankful for what you do have and strive to be better every day in the eyes of our Lord!

    God Bless, Myracle Anne Blessings
