News Anchor Wishes to be in ‘Dancing with the Stars’

katie couricTonight’s headline: News Anchor Katie Couric wants to become a contestant in the reality-competition Dancing with the Stars.

“My secret fantasy, sadly, is to be on Dancing With the Stars,” said the 53-year-old CBS Evening News anchor and former Today show host to Us Magazine, Wednesday, September 15.

However, there’s one thing that’s stopping her.

“But I don’t know, those skimpy outfits! Seriously, it’d be like, ‘Paging Jenny Craig, stat!'” she exclaimed.

Couric goes to the gym regularly and is thought to be in great shape. A stint in the show will actually not be difficult for her.

She does not watch reality shows though and admitted that she does not understand fully the concept of the genre.

Interestingly, Bristol Palin, will be in the upcoming eleventh season of the show, which starts Monday, September 20. Bristol Palin is the daughter of Sarah Palin, whose famous interview with Couric won the anchor the Walter Cronkite Award for Journalism Excellence.
