Start spreading the news!!!!
This is really happening!!!
Katie Couric's daytime talk show Katie premieres in ABC on September 10 and she's got LOTS of big names lining up to talk to her.
Jessica Simpson — a fashion designer, mom AND Weight Watchers spokeswoman — will be appearing on the show's premiere to discuss the challenges of balancing her body image and career during motherhood. Sheryl Crow, on the other hand, will be stopping by to talk about entering the next phase of her life as a single, 50-year-old mom, which is something we're SURE Couric will have a lot to kiki about!
That's just the start of a very strong guest list too. The former CBS Evening News anchor will be joined by 50 Shades of Grey author E L James, Sofia Vergara, Jennifer Lopez, Barbra Streisand, Wendy Williams, Heidi Klum, Susan Sarandon and Chelsea Handler in the future.
With so much star power, we'd be absolutely SHOCKED if this show didn't succeed!
Despite the celebrity guests, the content will still be relatable to average women because the guests will be discussing real issues that affect us all in one way or another. For instance, Demi Lovato will appear to talk about her personal struggles with anorexia and bulimia, while flesh-eating bacteria victim Aimee Copeland will shed some light on her traumatizing experience.
We're really diggin' the direction of the show, which will also include fun and inspirational segments. While Couric will be crossing activities off of her bucket list in "YOLO: You only live once," she'll also highlight "women who should be famous."
Sounds like fun! But we're crossing our fingers the producers book some male eye candy for us too! Ha!
