Shots Fired! Kim Kardashian Calls Katie Couric Out For Her “Fake” Baby Gift

kim kardashian katie couric

LOL to all of this. Apparently Katie Couric said one time that she didn’t get why the Kardashians are famous (WHO DOES?) and that was enough to set off Kim‘s bullshit meter. So when she received a gift for baby North from Katie, she figured there was no better way to handle the situation than to post a picture of the gift and the note that came with it on Instagram and call out her “#fakemediafriends”. HA! She added, “#MayIHumblySuggestYouNotSendGiftsThenTalkS**t”

Listen, Kim, don’t get all butthurt because Katie questioned why you’re famous. I think even your own fans wonder it. I used to watch your awful reality shows all the time and wonder why I’m doing so and why anyone even cares… and I’m one of the people watching it! You have no discernible talent and yet you’ve made millions and millions of dollars from clothing lines, perfume (right? she has a perfume?) and endless of other endorsements. Maybe she’s just one smart cookie. Maybe it’s just dat ass. Who can say, and who cares?

Katie has since apologised to Kim, telling the New York Daily News:

“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 fascinating with her family. I didn’t mean to hurt her feelings. The gift is genuine and I’m happy for Kim and Kanye.”

Katie, don’t even bother.

Katie Couric Makes Fun of Sarah Palin

Katie Couric thinks Sarah Palin’s just as bad at naming her kids as the rest of us, apparently. Check out the clip above in which Katie does a run through of the day’s news, specifically a story talking about Sarah and her husband Todd’s wedding anniversary, when she blurts out “Where the hell did they get these names?!” (right at the 1:14 mark.) While she retrains herself from saying much more, it’s kind of hilarious to see Katie Couric break from the news just to be all like, “WTF???”

I mean, she’s right, Track? Trig? Bristol? I was unaware that Alaska had that good herb.

Stars’ Halloween Costumes

Valentino Garavani

I hope you’re all getting into some debauchery tonight. Like I said earlier, it’s the one night of the year when you can dress like a slut, a freak, or a creep, and people won’t think you’re insane or hold you accountable. It’s just like living in Hollywood.

Celebs are taking advantage of the same opportunity. Katie Couric was spotted sporting this year’s ubiquitous Kate Gosselin costume while the hosts of the Today Show went the Luke & Leia route. Fashion designer Michael Kors dressed in a detailed hippie costume while designer Valentino (above) dressed up as an Oompah Loompah. Oh wait… that’s not a costume.

Would someone please tell me what the hell Martha Stewart and Mickey Rourke are supposed to be? I tried to figure out their costumes, but the best I could come up with was “tree trunk” and “Mickey Rourke.”

A Note on John McCain

I know there’s been a lot of posts on this website lately that seem to be poking fun of the McCain/Palin campaign. I know some people have a problem with it. And I know some people think I should come out and say where I stand on this election.

This is not a partisan website, nor is it on its way to becoming a partisan website.

I’ve been talking about John McCain and Sarah Palin frequently because they’re the ones who have been fun to talk about lately. They are the ones who have been making choices and taking actions and giving interviews that are, frankly, amusing and broadly newsworthy, in one way or another. It’s not that Barack Obama hasn’t been doing things this month, it’s just that he hasn’t been doing very interesting things. He hasn’t been newsworthy.

And I find that fascinating.

Six months ago, we all figured that Barack Obama would be the interesting candidate right now. That his campaign would be exciting. That we’d be hearing his words and his ideas and incessantly discussing his actions here, a month before the election. We thought, if nothing else, that Barack Obama would have the buzz. That there was no way an old white dude with zero skill as an orator could run a campaign anywhere near as enthralling — as attention-grabbing — as Barack Obama.

We figured wrong.

We, as a nation, have been talking entirely about the John McCain campaign for the past month, and all signs indicate that we’ll be talking entirely about the John McCain campaign in the next month.

Take a step back and think about it.

How the fuck did he pull that shit off?

It’s been brilliant. Phenomenal. And if what you’re looking for is a leader with the experience, the team and the finesse to think outside the box and execute risky choices that tilt the axis of history in unexpected ways … well, folks, that’s exactly what John McCain is doing right now.

I’m just saying.

For the sake of non-partisanship, here’s a video of Sarah Palin making an ass of herself for Katie Couric. And if John McCain dies while in office, this creature becomes the most powerful human being on the planet. I’m just saying.
