You know Barbara Walters - she never backs down from asking the tough questions.
This morning, she and the other ladies of The View welcomed Katie Couric to the program and Babz cut right to the chase. She asked Katie, straight out, if she would confirmed she was leaving CBS Evening News. A bit miffed, Katie replied:
"No. First of all, I don't think it's my place to do that. I haven't made a decision. I respect you wanting to ask the question and make news on The View, but I'm not in a position to discuss it at this time."
Of course, that answer didn't stop the rest of the ladies from pressing on her further and asking if she would consider doing a talk show. Again, Katie politely refrained from answering their questions by adding:
"I'm figuring things out…I'm looking at all sorts of opportunities."
Look no further, Katie! Sounds like The View really wants you! You're under the impression that they are trying to get a big headline out of you! Hell no! Babz wants you on her panel - we can sense it!
Or maybe we're reaching, who knows. We do know that when Katie is ready to tell us her next move, she will.
