Katie Couric Doing Great, But Feels Loss Of Husband

by at . Comments

On the air, Katie Couric is all smiles. And don't get her wrong - as she tells Parade magazine - the soon-to-be CBS news anchor is "doing great."

But Couric says she still reels from the loss of her husband eight years ago, despite feeling lucky to have a "sorority house" at home to help get her through the tough times.

"When I see a father walking down the street with a little girl and holding her hand, my feeling of loss is palpable," she says. "I'm so envious. We were ripped off. I was ripped off, and that's all there is to it."

Even though Couric is single, she tells Parade's Jacquelyn Mitchard that she has "a very full social life." Of course, a little romance never hurt anyone.

"I would love to be married or in a really solid, committed relationship. I'd love that now. But [the right guy] just hasn't materialized."

The news woman is also keen enough to understand that, sooner rather than later, she'll have to introduce Ellie, 14, and Carrie, 9, to the world of men, given her female-laden household.

"I've started to think that it's important for my girls to realize there are some really nice, wonderful men out there, because we live in a bit of a sorority house here," says Couric. "Everyone in our house is female. Even the guinea pig is female."

I love this post! I was a girl scout for 9 years and loved every minute of it. My mom woekrd for Girl Scouts and I use to work for Girl Scouts, too! I think it is just a positive and empowering organization for girls and young women. It's more than singing campfire songs and selling cookies (which some people don't understand). Everytime you (or anyone else) buy a box of cookies from a girl, you are helping to teach her financial literacy. Their mission statement is to build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.
