Not my Katie but Katie of The Today Show/CBS News and now her own talk show fame, Katie.
Lisa Stone (of BlogHer) interviewed her during lunch on Saturday and I have to say I was completely impressed.
On Friday another famous woman was in the same spot and before the conference I was more excited to see her but it turns out I was MUCH more impressed with Ms. Couric.
She was so easy to relate to and funny and just REAL.
She talked about her life after her husband died, her love for her girls and that infamous interview with Sarah Palin. And she even showed us her famous "guns" (aka arm muscles). Oh and she was wearing some AMAZING Louboutins! She simply exuded class and personality.
PLUS! She wants to work with and feature bloggers on her show. And she is even on twitter actually tweeting with us. You know, like she's a regular gal. I love that.
I honestly think we could be friends IRL, you know if I lived in Manhattan. I mean, we could totally go shoe shopping together. And tweet each other on our smart phones. And do lunch.
I could even be the Gail to her Oprah.
Now THAT would be awesome...
So, any celebrities you've seen/met in the past that surprised you?
Any that you want to be best friends with?
ANY "miss elaine-ous" post will do, something from your archives or something brand new! :)
Do you have a post that meant a lot to you but wasn't read by as many folks as you'd hoped? Or one that has great pictures and you want more people to see them? Or do you just have one that you really want to share!?
I'll also choose a random post from those who link up to feature on The Miss Elaine-ous Life Facebook page (please "Like" if you have not already) so even more folks will see a new post every week! Grab the button and link up! And please visit some of the other linkers as well...
