Saturday, February 2, 2013

KATIE Couric has revealed she once went on a date with Larry King!

The TV star says she went out with King in the 80s. Katie revealed she and Larry met at a party when they were both living in Washington D.C. and he asked her out.

“So I was about 30-years-old and I was going through this period of my life where I was like ‘I am going I am going to go out with anyone who asks me because you learn something every time you go out with a new person,’” she said.

“He picks me up from my apartment, and he was driving a Lincoln town car.

“We go to this Italian restaurant. They put us right next to each other like they do all the men and their ‘nieces’ … and he ordered veal poached in chicken stock because he had just had quadruple bypass, which was hot …

“We’re having a nice enough time. We’re driving home and I see we’re going over Memorial Bridge and that’s not the way back to my apartment. So I go, ‘Larry, where are we going?’

“He goes, ‘MY place.’ And I was like ‘Oh, mother of God. Oh God’ …

“I was only thirty I just could not figure out how to extricate myself from it.

“We walk in and it’s covered with proclamations like ‘Larry King Day’ and keys to every city in the country—that was sexy …

“So we sat there, and what can I say? He lunged … and I started laughing a little bit because the whole situation was out of a bad Lifetime movie.

“I said, ‘Larry, you are such a nice man, but I would like to meet someone a LITTLE closer to my age.”
