AceShowbiz - %cKatie Couric% has responded to %cKim Kardashian%'s angry message which she wrote on Instagram following Katie's interview with a magazine. The journalist explains in a statement that she did not mean to offend Kim when she wondered why the Kardashians were so famous in the interview.
"I've met Kim before and I think she's a really sweet person," Katie tells E! News. "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 %cKanye West%," she adds.
Previously, Katie discussed some topics with In Touch magazine, such as her marriage and people's interest towards Kim Kardashian and Kim's family. "I don't understand - why are they so famous? I think it's mostly teenage girls that are interested," she said.
Kim apparently was offended after learning of the news. She posted a picture of a gift from Katie and captioned the picture with hashtags, "#IHateFakeMediaFriends," and "#MayIHumblySuggestYouNotSendGiftsThenTalkS**t." Kim's sister %cKhloe Kardashian% applauded her action, writing on Twitter, "God I love this new side of u!"
In other news, Katie recently was slammed by %cJennifer Aniston% after she learned that the journalist once pried into her love life. %cChelsea Handler% told the "We're the Millers" star earlier this month, "Katie Couric was asking me on her show about your wedding and I had to act like I didn't even know you were engaged because I didn't know that was out. Then she was like, 'Well, everyone knows about it!' So, I felt really stupid."
The actress, who apparently was annoyed, replied, "What's Katie Couric? Is she a legitimate journalist? Is she getting tabloidy? Wasn't she on the 'Today' show?" Chelsea answered, "She was on the 'Today' show. She got a demotion to her own show."
