The 62-year-old host was married to Jay Monahan between 1989 and 1998. His demise from colon cancer parted them forever.

She became solely responsible for her two daughters, Caroline and Elinor Monahan. His love still walks with her and gives her the courage to stand up against cancer.

Recently, Katie commemorated him with a sweet tribute. It was a throwback photo of Jay with their daughter.

Did she date Cory Booker?

Last week, Katie Couric joined Wendy Williams on her daytime talk show.

When the topic diverted to Cory Booker dating actress Rosario Dawson, Katie chimed in with a tale of her own. She disclosed that once, she went on a blind date with the Senator at a New York Giants football game. However, it's been a very long time ago.

As published on Huff Post, Williams got a little curious to know the details. She asked if the Democratic presidential candidate and Katie actually kissed. She replied with a laugh:

Did we kiss? No, we did not kiss.

Couric recalled they didn’t even hold hands while crossing the parking lot. Wendy retranslated their interaction to be just a casual hangout between two pals, rather than a date. That's pretty comical!
