Katie Couric Is Crushing On John Grisham

If Katie Couric had her choice in the man she could snuggle up to a warm fire with it would be famed suspense author John Grisham.

Couric was interviewed for the September issue of Southern Living magazine which goes on sale Friday. During her interview she says of her “fantasy” husband:

“My fantasy husband is John Grisham, even though he’s been taken for many years. He’s Southern. He’s a lawyer. He’s a great writer.”

The TV host further admits that she is very attracted to Southern men, especially the type of southern guy capable of packing on the southern charge.

In the meantime the 55-year-old Katie Couric is attached to another man, New York financier John Molner, 49. The couple have been dating since April 2012.

Check out the September issue of Southern Living and you can also learn about Katie Couric’s upcoming daytime talk show which premieres on ABC Sept. 10.

Speaking of her new show Katie says:

“I hope my new show will be the go-to place for a smart, compelling conversation about the people, events, and issues affecting us today.”

Perhaps Couric can score John Grisham as one of her first guests, they could talk about his books, his law degree and the top 10 reasons they should be together forever.

In the meantime Couric has to be feeling pretty good these days, not only is her new daytime talk show about to begin, the Today Show has fallen apart since her departure, slipping in the ratings as former fans of the show struggle to find interest in the daytime talk show.
