Katie Couric August 30 2013
Katie Couric is welcoming the hilarious Niecy Nash and Cedric the Entertainer to her August 30 episode. They are talking about their TV Land sitcom, The Soul Man. Also, don’t miss parenting advice from Steve Schirripa, and catch up with onetime Miss America Vanessa Williams. It’s all happening on Friday’s episode.
Katie Show: Cedric The Entertainer + Niecy Nash
Cedric The Entertainer stars as an R&B singer-turned-preacher on the TV Land series The Soul Man, which recently concluded its second season. After a life in Las Vegas, he felt called to the gospel in St. Louis.
Along with his wife, a beauty salon owner played by Niecy Nash, a daughter, a brother and his father, Cedric’s character must adjust to a dramatically different lifestyle.
Niecy Nash gave her own romantic advice to Katie viewers on the show, saying once you get the right guy, “you gotta keep him out of the streets and in your sheets.”
Beyond the sitcom, you can read Niecy’s new book, It’s Hard To Fight Naked. Plus, you can watch Cedric the Entertainer as the new host of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire, starting September 2.
Katie Couric: Vanessa Williams Miss America
Three decades ago, Vanessa Williams blazed a new trail as the first African American woman to win the Miss America pageant. A scandal meant she had to give up the title, but that didn’t slow her down at all. She turned into a phenomenally talented entertainer.
In 2013, she has been starring in the revival of The Trip To Bountiful on Broadway, along with Cicely Tyson, who won a Tony Award for the role. Having seen the show myself, I can say that both women’s performances were amazing.
You are running out of time to see the show, which closes in early October. Be sure to check it out on Broadway if you have the chance.
Katie Show: Steve Schirripa Parenting
For seven years, Steve Schirripa starred as Bobby Baccalieri in The Sopranos. Now he is sharing his reflections on the challenges of parenting in a book, Big Daddy’s Rules: Raising Daughters Is Tougher Than I Look. He talked about the book on Katie Show August 30.
Also tune in for this show to get swimsuit reviews just in time for them to go on sale at the end of the season. Dr Mark Hyman weighed in on the season’s popular diets as well, on Katie Couric August 30.
