Katie Couric Calls Former ‘Today’ Co-Anchor Bryant Gumbel A “Sexist”

So, imagine this: Katie Couric, the seasoned anchor, decided to spill some piping hot tea about her former co-star, Bryant Gumbel, while sipping metaphorical margaritas on Bill Maher’s Club Random podcast.

Picture it: Katie, 67 and fabulous, kicks back, ready to dish out the juicy details of their time on The Today Show. And oh boy, did she serve it up with a side of sass!

She recalls how Bryant, in all his supposed broadcasting glory, had this knack for being a royal pain in her side. Like, seriously, he practically had a Ph.D. in Sarcasm with a minor in Eye-Rolling.

So, get this: Katie, glowing with that maternal glow, decides to take a well-deserved maternity leave. But what does Mr. Gumbel do? He starts cracking jokes like he’s auditioning for a stand-up gig at the local comedy club. “Why don’t you just drop it in the field and come back?” he quips. Classic Bryant, right? Wrong. Katie wasn’t having any of it. She’s over here growing a human, and he’s treating her like she’s on an extended vacation!

But let’s not forget, Katie’s not one to mince words. She’s all about giving credit where it’s due. She admits Bryant was smooth as silk on the airwaves, spewing eloquence like it’s nobody’s business. But behind the scenes? Oh, honey, that’s a different story. She describes him as prickly, like a cactus you accidentally sit on, and a total “guy’s guy.” You know, the kind who probably thinks changing diapers is an Olympic sport.

Their partnership was like a sitcom, with Katie playing the straight-laced lead and Bryant the lovably grumpy sidekick. They were the dynamic duo of morning television, until Bryant decided to ditch the Today fam for greener pastures over at CBS. Katie, never one to shy away from a challenge, followed suit, breaking glass ceilings as the first lady of CBS Evening News in 2006.

And the moral of the story? Well, maybe it’s that even in the glamorous world of TV, there’s always room for a little drama—especially when Bryant Gumbel’s involved.
