“I respect [Marilyn],” the businesswoman said during an appearance on Todayin June. “I understand how much this dress means to American history and with the [Met] theme being American, I thought what is more American than Marilyn Monroe singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to the President of the United States.”
When co-anchor Hoda Koch asked Kardashian to address claims the dress was “ruined,” she shook her head and said, “No … Ripley’s [and I]They all worked well together. There were handlers and gloves that put it on me.”
