“Katie” host and “Good Morning America” alum Katie Couric has a secret love life, according to Us Weekly’s June 17 issue. Couric has a little black book that houses some pretty surprising names; all of them kept secret until now. Katie, 56, broke her silence and decided to dish on her romantic past on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show on May 28.
During the live Stern show, Couric opened up about how she dated “Survivor” host Jeff Probst and “America’s Funniest Video” comedian Bog Saget. Both of these gentlemen took her out, but neither asked her for a second date.
Jeff Probst, 51, reached out to Us Weekly to explain. “I never got her number!” he insists, then adding his assistant was the one responsible for the date. Even though Jeff is set to marry actress Lisa Ann Russell, Probst jokes about how life many have turned out had they gone on a second date. “I mean, come on- it’s Katie Couric!”
Bob Saget, 57, wasn’t as nice about their date, telling Us Weekly that they “did a benefit together” and he went to dinner with Katie. Bob says he’s “seen her many times since” and that “she’s lovely” but no thanks.
Katie Couric was also asked out by radio talk-show host Larry King as well as the King of Pop, the late Michael Jackson. Katie Couric told Howard Stern, “That would have been insane...break break with Michael Jackson!”
