When she made the move from the “Today” show in the morning to the “CBS Evening News,” Katie Couric’s image underwent an overhaul, with the goal of toning down her perky persona, in favor of a more sophisticated one. Unfortunately, Katie says that a lot of her fans seem to be wondering where all of her up-beat energy has gone.
Couric tells More magazine, “At ‘Today,’ I seemed to be enjoying myself, I seemed to be fun-loving. ‘We really liked her in the morning’ – that’s what the old viewers say. But now – well, they seem to think it’s like I’ve had a lobotomy or a personality change.”
Please, girl. That would be like if I was suddenly getting paid BANK to pretend to be a nice person on these blogs, only to have all of our readers complain that the snark had left the building. Seriously, I love you guys with all of my heart, but there is a magic sum of money that could very easily turn me against you in a heartbeat. Yes, I have a price. And sadly, it’s not even that high.
