The Word: Katie Couric is engaged
Congratulations to Katie Couric: She and her boyfriend, banker John Molner, got engaged this weekend.
According to People, Molner, 50, popped the question in East Hampton on the beach at sunset, hopefully on Sunday when the weather was actually decent. He and Couric, 56, have been dating for about two years.
They’re quite the power couple: Couric’s talk show “Katie” returns for a second season next week, and Molner is head of mergers and acquisitions at Brown Brothers Harriman.
It’s always a good idea to marry a guy whose job makes him sound like the bad guy in an ’80s comedy. You know they can take care of you, because of all the profits from knocking down community centers to build condos.
This will be the TV host’s second marriage. She has two children, Ellie, 21, and Carrie, 17, with her first husband, Jay Monahan, who passed away of colon cancer in 1998.
