Normally, so-called America’s Sweethearts completely and totally work my nerves. But this is not the case with Katie Couric. Confession: I love Couric. I love her dimples, her perfect highlights, her perkiness, her journalistic cred, her cancer advocacy work, and yes I could go on but I will spare you. So I was very pleased to see that US Weekly had Couric do its column “25 Things You Didn’t Know About Me” this week. Here are my favorite items on her list:
My best Christmas gift ever was when Al Roker gave me a Bacon of the Month club membership.
I love karaoke. I do a mean Patsy Cline.
I’d love to star in a Broadway musical — if I could sing!
My happy place is the beach at 5 p.m., after people have left. The light is so beautiful.
