Apparently Katie Couric is a bit of a mean girl, especially when it comes to the reality show clique. Couric specifically called out Snooki as someone she wouldn’t have on her new show, “Katie.”
“I don’t think I’m necessarily going to have Snooki,” Couric candidly told reporters about her new show Tuesday in Toronto.
Apparently it would be too big a leap to go from hosting the nightly news to talking poop and the Jersey Shore within such a short career window. Katie does have her journalistic integrity to consider, even if she has been demoted to daytime talk.
“I like [Snooki], and she’s cute and everything, and I think it’s funny that people find her interesting,” Couric went on to say. “That’s great. But that’s probably not going to be first and foremost on our show.”
That’s like saying “I don’t hate you or anything Snooki, but you’re not invited to my house. I’m kinda worried you’ll pee on the new carpet.” But fear not, daytime viewers. IF Snooki does something actually newsworthy, Katie’s not going to rule out an appearance.
“If for some reason something huge happens on Jersey Shore, and something huge happens on Kim Kardashian, I’m not above talking about things people are interested in,” she insisted. “All different topics can be done well.”
Yeah, done well if the ratings drop and you need a Snooki-sized savior for your show. Who does Katie want on the show? Amanda Knox, the acquitted murderer. Stay classy, Katie.
