Katie Couric Won’t Have Snooki on Talk Show: “I Think It’s Funny People Find Her Interesting”
Well, it seems that Jersey Shore fever has yet to catch with some folks this summer, and Katie Couric is among them.
While promoting her new syndicated talk show Katie, Ms. Couric openly discussed who she aspires to have on the show — and who she just plain doesn't care about one way or the other. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Katie allowed that Snooki is "cute and everything...But that's probably not going to be first and foremost on our show."
No hard feelings though, right Snooks? Clearly, the former CBS Evening News anchor has way bigger fish to fry. But ever the diplomatic news correspondent, Katie continued, “If for some reason something huge happens on Jersey Shore, and something huge happens on Kim Kardashian, I’m not above talking about things people are interested in. All different topics can be done well." Well excuse you, Ms. Couric!
What about people Katie actually would find worthy to be on her show? Amanda Knox, for one: “That would be a huge get, but that’s very competitive.” If not, "Kate Middleton would be pretty nice to have on our show,” she added.
Personally, we don't see much of a difference between royalty, arguable felons and Snooki, but to each her own. Best of luck, Katie!
