Katie Couric is responding after Kim Kardashian slammed the journalist for sending the new mom a baby gift and then dissing her family in a recent interview.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, Kardashian posted a picture of the congratulatory card from Couric on Instagram and wrote as a caption, “I Hate Fake Media Friends.”

Now, Couric is apologizing to the reality star and trying to make nice.

The “Katie” host tells EOnline in a statement, “I’ve met Kim before and I think she’s a really sweet person.”

Couric, who had said she didn’t understand why the Kardashians were famous, continued, “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,” added the journalist.

What do you think of Couric apologizing to Kardashian?
