Albuquerque Journal - Parade - - PERSONALITY -

The jour­nal­ist, 56, kicks off the sec­ond sea­son of her na­tion­ally syn­di­cated talk show, Katie, to­mor­row.

Has any as­pect of host­ing the show sur­prised you? The live stu­dio au­di­ence is amaz­ing—you feel their en­ergy in­stead of imag­in­ing it. But dur­ing the com­mer­cial breaks I feel like I need to keep them en­ter­tained! Who would you like to in­ter­view this sea­son? I en­joy talk­ing to Ge­orge Clooney; I hope he can join us. We couldn’t nab him last year. My other dream guests are Hil­lary Clin­ton, An­gelina Jolie, Bey­oncé, Colin Firth, and the women who were kid­napped in Cleve­land. What’s one big pinch-your­self mo­ment from your ca­reer? Meet­ing the queen at Buck­ing­ham Palace and sit­ting down with Prince Wil­liam and Prince Harry was very cool. When Wil­liam said, “I think Kate’s in the other room,” I al­most had a heart at­tack!

Does it bother you that ev­ery­one is so in­ter­ested in your love life? I ac­tu­ally think it’s sweet. Peo­ple know I was wid­owed at a fairly young age with two small kids, and they’re hope­less ro­man­tics. I hope it’s be­cause they want to see me find my soul mate for the sec­ond time and want me to be happy.
