As if Katie Couric needs more headaches
Now she's the subject of an unauthorized biography, "Katie: The Real Story," due out Aug. 28, to coincide with all the "Katie: One Year Later" stories.
From the press release:
"For the past twenty-five years-- first as the blithe spirit of the Today show, then as the only woman ever to anchor a network news program solo--Katie Couric has been a familiar visitor in the homes of millions. Yet, despite all her public exposure, no one -- until now -- has been able to penetrate the secrets behind her closely guarded personal life and her struggles in the cutthroat world of television news.
"In this probing portrait of America's news queen, bestselling author Edward Klein rips away the mask that has hidden the many faces of Katie Couric: the strong, independent woman and the needy wife and lover; the grieving widow famed for her kindness to others and the fiercely competitive diva; the consummate television interviewer and the stumbling network anchor. ...
"As Klein makes clear, Katie's road to stardom has been paved with rocky personal relationships: a turbulent marriage to Jay Monahan, who died of colon cancer colon cancer, cancer of any part of the colon (often called the large intestine).

I've also heard that if you're a woman who wants to get on Couric's bad side, just wear a nicer pair of pumps around her. Wonder if that'll be in the book.
