Katie Couric wants to dance 'with the Stars'

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."

    She is not a nice person; camera-hungry; rude; arrogant; insensitive (just see most of her interviews) . . . so 'no' would not watch DWTS if she was on.

    Is this old bat still kicking? She looks like the Sea Hag from Popeye. That or Alice the Goon. This woman is older than Phyllis Diller and her face looks like she's related to the Crypt Keeper.

    I like how she made Palin look like the idiot that she is though.

    I wish all the worst for her. A student I know had an interview set up with her. She acted like a b**ch, talked on her cell phone, rolled her eyes when he asked her a question and practically pushed him out the door. DIVA! Don't set these things up if you are going to act this way. If you dance I hope you fall on your a**.

    PLEASE.....don't. Watching Kate Gosslin (whatever her last name is) was painful enough, don't add insult to injury....

    Katie will always be my special star for her interview with Sarah Palin. She showed America what a "DUNCE" Ms. Palin was and that was more important than America catching you know who. Dance away my little star!!!!!!!!!!!

      Ms Couric won't know where to hide when she has to release the uncut version of the interview. She will have to reIease the uncut version f Palin runs for POTUS. Won't be very pretty for Ms. Couric.
