Valerie Harper and 'Mary Tyler Moore Show' cast reunite -- VIDEO

Here’s something that should suddenly make this nothing day seem worthwhile: This afternoon, Katie takes a trip to the set of Hot in Cleveland, where Mary Tyler Moore, Valerie Harper, and Cloris Leachman recently filmed a guest spot alongside their old Mary Tyler Moore cast mates (and current Cleveland residents) Betty White and Georgia Engel.

Though it’s been over 30 years since the ladies appeared on a sitcom together, you’d never know it from their strong rapport. Here’s a sneak peek of Moore and Harper explaining why Mary Richards had such a hold on women. (Valerie’s explanation: “Mary is who you wish you were, Rhoda is who you probably are, and Phyllis is who you’re afraid you’ll become.”)

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.”

On the scene: E L James talks 'Fifty Shades' with Katie Couric

Katie may be daytime’s most colorful show. The greenroom is literally painted a soft mint green. Deep blues adorn the high-tech, mechanized set. Audience members are decked out in numerous brightly hued cardigans. And today, the show’s stage was bathed by sultry red lights in honor of Couric’s guest — Erika Leonard, a.k.a. Fifty Shades of Grey author E L James. (Fifty Shades hero Christian Grey does his dirtiest deeds in a chamber known as the Red Room of Pain.)

The kinky theme didn’t stop with that crimson glow. For one day only, the usually demure Katie logo was adorned with a pair of handcuffs naughtily looped around the “k.” And Couric herself drew whoops from the audience when she appeared at the top of the hour in a sleeveless black leather dress and sky-high stilettos — to the tune of Rihanna’s “S&M,” naturally. “Relax — this won’t hurt at all,” Couric joked, introducing herself as our “mistress” for the day. What would Matt Lauer think?!

Given all this, audience members probably expected James to emerge wearing an American Horror Story-style rubber fetish suit — or at least to be as boisterous and open as Anastasia Steele’s inner goddess.  READ FULL STORY
