Katie Couric Under Fire After Comments on Kate Middleton’s Weight

What better way to launch a new daytime talk show geared toward women than by starting a media storm about weight? Katie Couric has drawn ire following comments she made about Kate Middleton's size during a recent interview.

After praising Middleton—revealing the Duchess of Cambridge is at the top of her wish list to interview on her upcoming show, Katie—Couric said this of Prince William's wife:
"I think she needs to eat more because she’s so thin."

Katie Couric’s Wish List Includes Amanda Knox and Kate Middleton

We already know Katie Couric has extended an open invitation to Sarah Palin to be a guest on her upcoming talk show, but now we’re learning more about who she wants to book.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, Couric has set her sights on landing Amanda Knox, but acknowledges the competition to land the interview is completive.  
“That would be a huge get, but that’s very competitive,” she said of the young American whose murder conviction in Italy was overturned late last year.

Kate Middleton would be pretty nice to have on our show,” Couric added.
