Katie Couric: I Want To Be On Dancing With The Stars

Katie Couric seems to have done it all, but there's one thing she's still anxious to conquer. "My secret fantasy, sadly, is to be on Dancing With the Stars," she tells

But the CBS Evening News anchor, who has two daughters – Ellie, 19 and Carrie, 14, with late husband Jay Monahan – says other than DWTS she isn't a big fan of reality shows. "My daughter watches Keeping Up with the Kardashians," she says.

"I really don't understand the whole genre to be honest with you," Katie admits. "You know, God love them if they're willing to invite people into every aspect of their personal life."

So, is she serious, should DWTS come calling? "I don't know, those skimpy outfits!" she laughs. And then adds, "Seriously, it'd be like, 'Paging Jenny Craig, stat!'"


After 25 Years, CNN Replaces Larry King

Jesus, finally. For a while it was a running joke that Larry King was from the Stone Age. Then it started to be a legitimate concern that he might be a hominid walking among us. Now, CNN finally realized it might be a good time to put Goblinface King to rest.  Some potential successors have already emerged to take over for Larry King when he leaves his prime-time CNN interview show sometime this fall.

CNN U.S. President Jon Klein is looking for someone different… a candidate no one has anticipated that will make people sit up and take notice. A candidate who doesn’t appear to be going into cardiac arrest every night.

“We will continue to do a provocative, topical, intelligent newsmaker interview show every night,” he said, “but the format and the style is going to depend a lot on the host — their interests, their style, their approach. Step one is get a host and build the show around them.”

King’s anniversary week lineup of guests — President Barack Obama, LeBron James, Bill Gates and Lady Gaga — illustrated that he diversified when it came to his guest lineup.  He was a man who could tackle interviews with both the President of the United States and celebrities. CBS News anchor Katie Couric has been the most frequently mentioned potential successor, in part because of the skill she displayed as an interviewer on the “Today” show, which is underused in her CBS job.

However, King’s favored successor is metrosexual mega-star Ryan Seacrest. .. of course. Someone else we can’t stand looking at.

“I’ve never gotten into deep political discussions with him,” King said. “But I would say if he has a working knowledge of politics, he’s as good a generalist as there is in broadcasting. If I ran a network, I’d hire him.”

But it’s all still up in the air. Too bad Conan O’Brien signed a contract with TBS already.. or else CNN could have his ginger pompadour interviewing Barack Obama… and how wouldn’t that be entertaining???


Damage Control: Katie Couric Talks About Those Pics of Her Droppin it Like It’s Hot

Katie Couric recently explained the exposed pictures of her dancing raunchy on the dance floor. 

She made light of the situation by saying that she and her assistant are now planning a pairs figure-skating dance routine based on them,and it wasn’t actually the image she was trying to project, but she’ll go with it.


Nice way to make light of it Katie, but you looked too comfortable for us to believe you don’t dance like that on a regular.


In White Folks News: Katie Couric gets Loose as a Goose on the Dance floor

Katie Couric was caught getting it in on the dance floor.  We wonder what was playing… More pics of Katie cutting a muthafu*kin rug under the hood.

We guess she can blame it on the alcohol, although it looks like she’s a pro at this.
