This year, some real-life drama surrounds the soap-focused Daytime Emmy Awards.

A few weeks before the ceremony, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences issued a casting call for social media mavens to host the event’s live-streamed red carpet preshow. Specifically, as reported by Soap Opera Network, organizers wanted “millennials between the ages of 18-35, all ethnicities, who have a strong entertainment news background and/or very strong social media following (300,000 followers minimum).” Last Wednesday, the NATAS revealed that it had selected a foursome with a mighty social reach: Vine star Brittany Furlan, style vlogger Lauren Elizabeth, beauty vlogger Jessica Harlow, and Meghan Rosette, who vlogs about style and beauty.

The chosen four certainly have large followings on sites like YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Vine, and Facebook—but their collective entertainment-news backgrounds aren’t quite as strong.

Katie Couric to reveal her own bulimia struggles on today's 'Katie'

X Factor judge Demi Lovato will discuss her prolonged battle with body image, bulimia, and bullying on this afternoon’s episode of Katie. But she’s not the only one opening up about her troubled past: Katie Couric will also candidly discuss her own struggle with bulimia.

“I wrestled with bulimia all through college and for two years after that,” Couric reveals on the show, according to the New York Post. “And I know this rigidity, this feeling that if you eat one thing that’s wrong, you’re full of self-loathing and then you punish yourself, whether it’s one cookie or a stick of gum that isn’t sugarless, that I would sometimes beat myself up for that.

“How do you have a healthy relationship with food, and say, ‘You know what, I can have one cookie and it’s OK?’” she continues. “That is such a huge thing for people who wrestle with this.”
