New Beginnings With Jessica Simpson & Sheryl Crow

The “Katie” premiere!

Today, Katie Couric embarked on a new chapter in her career, and stepped into the daytime television arena with the premiere of her nationally syndicated talk show, Katie. We wanted to mark the occasion by paying homage to a show that made TV history, including a special surprise guest from Katie’s past.

Our very first guest, Jessica Simpson, reveals her post-baby body and discusses why being a mother to little Maxwell Drew is an absolute “dream.”
