What about the gifts?

Day three of Kardashian divorce coverage and we’re not slowing down — not when, like Pompei, there are so many unanswered questions out there.

But they won’t be unexplained for long as — wouldn’t you know it? — it just so happens Kris Jenner has a new book, Kris Jenner: And All Things Kardashian, that she has to promote!

The ladies of The View grilled Mama Kardashian Wednesday and whereas Jenner was very honest, she says she doesn’t know what her daughter will do with that $2 million dollar engagement ring.

But we do, thanks to a quick chat with etiquette expert extraordinaire, Lizzie Post, co-author of the new book Emily Post’s Etiquette: 18th Edition. And although “etiquette” and “Kardashian” go as well together as “Larry King” and “sex tape,” she does have some good points.

“That’s her ring to keep,” she advises.

“It’s really hers and it’s up to her on what she decides to do with it.

“She did have a marriage. Just because it didn’t last very long doesn’t mean she didn’t follow through with her engagement.”

But, as for the news Kardashian is donating her millions of dollars worth of wedding gifts to charity, Post says that is just wrong, wrong, wrong.

“It’s totally inappropriate!” she laughs.

“I know her heart is in the right place but the truth of the matter is, the intention behind a wedding gift isn’t to be donated, it was for them to be used as gifts for Kris and Kim and their life together.

“The appropriate thing is to return them to the person who gave it — especially if she goes and gets the tax write-off for them.”

Post’s last piece of etiquette advice is that everyone (even big-headed gossip columnists like myself) need to be respectful of their divorce.

“Everyone should be very open minded and respectful now,” says Post.

“I don’t care who you are — having a marriage dissolve after that short of time is very painful,” she adds.
