Sure, she's interviewed presidents and movie stars, but can Katie Couric do the cha-cha? The "CBS Evening News" anchor would welcome the chance to let the world find out.
"My secret fantasy, sadly, is to be on 'Dancing With the Stars,'" Couric confessed to Us Weekly. But as far as those splashy sequined costumes, Couric admits that she'd prefer to keep things modest - much like Bristol Palin, who competes in tonight's season premiere of the ABC dance competition.
"I don't know, those skimpy outfits!" the 53-year-old mother of two said. "Seriously, it'd be like, 'Paging Jenny Craig, stat!'"
Despite being fascinated with "DWTS" and admitting her desire to interview White House-crashing "Real Housewives of D.C." star Michaele Salahi, Couric told Us she's not really into reality TV.
"My daughter watches 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians,'" she said. "I really don't understand the whole genre, to be honest with you. You know, God love them if they're willing to invite people into every aspect of their personal life."
