KATIE COURIC OPENS UP ABOUT DATE WITH LARRY KING
Katie Couric recently made an appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel show.
During the interview the talk show host opened up about an awkward date that she had with fellow talk show host Larry King.
She said that the date took place nearly 26 years ago when Katie was 30 and Larry King was 56.
Katie says that when Larry asked her out, she figured it would be a good learning experience, but it seems like Larry was looking for something more.
Couric said that King tried to take her back to his house and the situation got awkward between the two.
Speaking to Kimmel on how she broke it off with King, Couric said, “Larry, you are such an interesting, nice man, but I would like to meet someone a little closer to my age.”
Couric also admitted that she turned down a date from Michael Jackson saying, “Can you imagine going to my daughters, who were 8 and 4, saying, honey, I’m going out on a date with Michael Jackson.”
