Who the hell gave Katie Couric a TV show? She's no OPRAH!!!! Tell her to retire. You can not be a mom if you are never there........

Fantastic. I love your show

I was just on the verge of becoming a Katie Couric fan once again but this comment about Kate Middleton is ridiculous. Katie should have considered that US/British relations (true, on a small scale) are involved here. I fear Katie has illusions about her own abilities and skills.

Katie, Is a jealous woman that has lost her youth and charm so she cast unfair and unfounded statements about beautiful and young ladies. Katie should stick with what she does best something I have never seen maybe it is her boy toys that she plays with.

That was so WRONG of Katie Couric to say that Catherine Duchess of Cambridge is underweight. Katie Couric is not a: doctor, nurse, nutritionist, medical expert, or medical practitioner of any kind. Katie Couric was not even ASKED during the interview about her personal opinion on Catherine Duchess. She was asked for her view as a Journalist, whom she would like to interview; and could not even do that in a professional manner. KATIE COURIC didn't shoot herself in the foot; she shot herself in the heart of her dying career. Lost her job as an Evening News Presenter because the Public no longer finds her credible.

I know you are an American, but for the record her name now is Kate Windsor. Her title is The Dutchess of Cambridge. We are honoured that the Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge choose Canada as the first official Commonwealth country to visit on their honeymoon.

I guess when your career is over, and you're desperate for attention, you'll say ANYTHING to grab the spotlight... How sad you are...

Dear Katie Couric, I expect more from you than throwing in an unnecessary, snarky comment about Kate Middleton's weight in an interview. Honest to God, I thought you were more evolved than that. For shame. Just lost a whole lot of respect for you.

who really cares what Katie Couric thinks? I think she's become way too full of herself, and frankly boring. Kate Middleton is smart enough to know how to take care of herself and since she is so happy in her life I'm sure she would do just that. So much publicity about Couric's new (what's new about another talk show?) show so of course she had to add a little more. Some people are just naturally thin and healthy at the same time, I think everyione should leave Kate Middleton alone and focus on their own lives and that includes Couric. I used to like her on the today show but she's beome another annoying personality. The only day I'll watch Couric's show is the day she has Barbra Streisand on and that will be to see Barbra, not Couric.
