Katie Couric is engaged! With her youngest daughter about to turn 18, the famous talk show host said “yes” to John Molner, a finance executive. John said he was old-fashioned and caught Katie by surprise, getting down on one knee on the beach. “When she said yes, I was just elated. It was a great culmination to one of the best periods of my life.” The couple have been dating for more than a year. Katie’s first husband, Jay, died 15 years ago from colon cancer. Katie said she called all of her late husband’s six brothers and sisters to tell them she was getting married again, and they were all thrilled for her. “That made me even happier, that they were all so thrilled,” Katie said.
We’re huge fans of The Sound of Music and watch it religiously during the holidays. And we’re SO pumped to read that Carrie Underwood will play Maria in this year’s “Live Sound of Music” TV special on NBC this December. Carrie told the producers that she would get the pageboy haircut that the original Maria had, if they wanted her to. But they may be leaning toward giving her braids instead. Carrie and her husband, Mike Fisher, have visited Austria where the original movie was filmed and have even toured the Von Trapp house.
James Van Der Beek and his wife Kimberly have been really busy. The parents of two small kids are now expecting their third child this winter. James told People magazine recently that he feels “ridiculously blessed.”
If you’re a fan of Dancing with the Stars, then you’ve probably heard that Valerie Harper is on the star-studded cast this year. She said she thought it would be inspiring for people to see a 74-year-old woman with a brain cancer diagnosis on the show. Valerie was once a professional dancer and began dancing on Broadway at age 17, using the money to pay for her acting lessons. Her doctors say that her cancer is close to remission.
