has a dream man.
“My fantasy husband is John Grisham, even though he’s been taken for many years,” Couric, speaking about the best-selling author of legal thrillers, tells September’s Southern Living magazine (on sale Friday). “He’s Southern. He’s a lawyer. He’s a great writer.”
Just don’t look for this crush to become anything real. While the Virginia-born Couric, 55, admits she’s “very attracted to Southerners and men bring out my Southern charm,” the TV host has been dating New York financier John Molner, 49, since April.
In the interview, Couric also talks about her new daytime talk show, Katie, set to premiere on ABC Sept. 10.
“I hope my new show will be the go-to place for a smart, compelling conversation about the people, events, and issues affecting us today,” she says.

There’s no slowing down for Katy Perry
One night after supporting musical pal Ferras during his performance on Thursday at Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood, the single “Teenage Dream” singer lent a hand to another friend.
Perry planned a special birthday party on Friday night for her close pal Jon, who is Ronan Farrow’s – the son of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow – best friend.
Renting out all of SHOREbar in Santa Monica, Calif., Perry was joined by approximately 40 guests, including Ronan, Hilary Duff and husband Mike Comrie, Ferras and the venue’s owner John Terzian.
“At the stroke of midnight, Katy brought out a birthday cake that had Jon’s face on it, and she sung ‘Happy Birthday’,” a source tells PEOPLE. “She was in good spirits, laughing and seeming to enjoy the night.”
Guests at the intimate fete sipped from the bar’s signature punch bowls, while listening to tunes spun by DJ beeFOWL.
Perry stayed until around 2 a.m., but “wasn’t being a party animal,” the source adds.
