Stars honor 9/11 while 'Today' talks Kardashians

On the 11th anniversary of September 11, 2001, a number of more famous names joined in the outpouring of tributes for those lost in the attacks that changed all of our lives, "star" or not.

But while singer Michelle Williams, Josh Duhamel, Ellen DeGeneres, Michael Phelps and "Modern Family's" Sarah Hyland shared that they would #neverforget, NBC's "Today" show has been accused of foregoing a moment of silence in order to talk to Kardashian family ringleader Kris Jenner.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, NBC was the sole "big three" broadcast network with a morning show that didn't air a moment of silence in memory of 9/11.

While ABC's "Good Morning America" and CBS' "CBS This Morning" cut into their programming to show live coverage of Manhattan's 9/11 memorial, THR reports, NBC's "Today" aired an interview with Kris Jenner talking about "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" and her breast implants.

However, an NBC rep said in a statement to Politico that the network's morning program "dedicated a considerable amount of time to September 11th coverage this morning throughout the entire show."

In a way, Kris acknowledged the anniversary of 9/11 on her Twitter account, as she retweeted a user who informed her: "@KrisJenner make sure you take a moment of silence for our fallen hero's [sic]. Today is about paying respect to those who lost their lives. #9/11."

Meanwhile, Kris's daughter Kim Kardashian posted to her own account a link to a blog item that recalls where she was when the tragedy happened and encourages others to take a moment to reflect.

"We all remember where we were when we heard the news," Kim tweeted with the link."#Remember911."
