One month ago the world was rocked to hear that current daytime TV host Katie Couric and former nighttime TV host Larry King went on a date many years ago. Katie Couric spoke about it during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel, letting the audience in on super gross details that no one asked for such as:

“It was [an] Italian restaurant where they put you right next to each other like they do with all the men and their ‘nieces.’”

And also:

“We’re driving home and I see we’re going over [Arlington] Memorial Bridge, and that’s not the way back to my apartment,” Couric recalled. “So I go, ‘Larry, where are we going?’ And he goes, ‘My place.’

Hahaha. Very smooth. “My place.” But now Larry King has appeared on Katie Couric’s show Katie to SET THE STORY STRAIGHT!

THERE YOU HAVE IT AMERICA! Larry King totally tried to do her, but it was at her place and not his! Finally we can sleep at night, knowing exactly where to place Katie and Larry in our sexy dreams. (At Katie’s apartment.) (I’m so sorry.) (I really am.) (WHAT IS THIS STORY, WHY DID HE GO ON THE SHOW? WHY DID SHE TALK ABOUT IT IN THE FIRST PLACE?!) (AHHHHHHHH) (Via Uproxx.)

  1. I had that happen once, sort of! The part about not going to her place. Long story involving non-soliciting hookers, blah blah, I ended up in a car with a girl and these two guys, and the guys were going to take her to her place, then take me back to my hotel. Instead, they were going in completely the wrong direction. Wouldn’t say where they were going, wouldn’t respond to her requests to just stop the car and let her out. Basically we were being kidnapped. It was weird.

  2. I wonder if this is the genesis of Craig Ferguson’s sour grapes?


    • No, Craig is jealous of Katie’s ratings. Sometimes it’s like you don’t even read Star for all the late night feud details as revealed by inside sources (Geoff).

  3. I think we have a photo.

  4. Let it go, Larry. Go toward the light.

  5. Nope. Nope nope nope. Not thinking about this.

  6. How does Taylor Swift feel about all of this?

  7. He’ll let it go for now! But this is him right after the show:

  8. I never would have guessed Katie Couric, or anyone, would have a fetish for raisins. But here we are.

  9. First of all, WHY is Katie so dam condescending? And secondly, WHY IS THE MEDIA INTERESTED IN THIS NON-STORY?

  10. The unfortunate conclusion to that fateful night:

  11. I actually saw this episode because my mom has been taping Katie Couric’s show (she actually tapes it on VHS), and this is the episode where they were talking about friendships. Katie’s best friend was on and before the segment, they were playing “Thank You for Being a Friend.” But not the whole song. Just the “thank you for being a friend” part over and over. And over. Maybe Katie only likes that part? Or they could only get the rights to the first line? In conclusion, this was not the strangest part of that show.
