Kim Kardashian and Katie Couric are not friends. The two fell out after Katie wondered out loud why the Kardashians were famous. Katie was quoted telling In Touch, “I don’t understand – why are they so famous? I think it’s mostly teenage girls that are interested.”
Earlier today, Kim posted a photo of Katie’s baby gift for her and Kanye’s infant, North West. Katie’s card reads in part: “Dear Kim and Kanye, Congratulations on the birth of your baby girl…”
Former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o told Katie Couric he “briefly” lied about his dead girlfriend even after he learned she didn’t exist.
“Katie, put yourself in my situation,” he said, “I, my whole world told me that she died on Sept. 12. Everybody knew that. This girl, who I committed myself to, died on Sept. 12.”
But his girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, did not exist. It was all a hoax.
Katie Couric’s full interview with Te’o will air on Thursday (check your local listings for the station and time). It should be noted that both Couric and Te’o have the same agent.
