Katie Couric is trying to clear the air after upsetting Keeping up with the Kardashians starlet Kim Kardashian.
As we previously reported, Kardashian slammed the journalist on Instagram, posting a photo of a gift Couric sent for her newborn baby daughter North West along with the caption, "#IHateFakeMediaFriends#MayIHumblySuggestYouNotSendGiftsThenTalkS--t."
Kardsahian is referring the subtle jab Couric unknowingly gave during an interview with In Touch Weekly when she responded to a question about the reality star family, “I don't understand—why are they so famous?" she answered puzzled E! News reports.
Couric has since released a statement to E! in the hopes of clarifying her intentions saying, “I've met Kim before and I think she's a really sweet person.”
Continuing she explains, "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."
Kardashian has not responded to Couric’s statement as of yet.
