Katie's Take
  • Who Was Katie in Her Past Life?

    Wouldn’t it be cool to find out who you might have been 100 years ago?

    Katie took a trip back with Dr. Brian Weiss MD – a psychiatrist and past-life expert to find out.

    First she started out with breathing exercises before embarking on her journey to yesteryear.

    Through deep breathing and muscle relaxation, Katie was able to remember her 8 year old self laying on the

    grass. Then Dr. Weiss lead her to a very important door that would answer everything.

    “Imagine there is a beautiful door and on the other side of the door is a figure or a person or a scene of a past-life,” Dr. Weiss said.

    So who was Katie?

    “I think I’m definitely a boy,” Katie said. “Maybe Huckleberry Finn. Or Tom Sawyer.”

    Dr. Weiss brings Katie back to analyze.

    “I was skeptical,” Katie admitted. Coincidentally, Katie revealed that she wrote her thesis on Mark Twain and Huckleberry Finn in college.

    Despite his millions of fans, his success and his love for performing live, there is an expiration date for Lil Wayne’s music.

    Born Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., his success belies an impoverished childhood in New Orleans. His father left the home and “his mother was mom and dad from day one.

    “I’m a man so I know explanations and excuses for why men leave,” said Lil Wayne. “If he reaches out to me, I would definitely not decline it. But I am so happy the way I am.”

    Despite his tough circumstances, he was a honors student in school. But music was his passion. While friends were playing hide-and-seek, Lil Wayne’s favorite game

  • Memory loss, libido, sleep problems. Almost nothing is off limits in Billy Crystal’s recently published “Still Foolin’ ‘Em: Where I’ve Been, Where I’m Going, and Where the Hell Are My Keys?”

    The longtime comedian celebrated his 65th birthday in March and wrote the book as he was approaching the milestone. It’s a funny look at what the aging process is all about, from marriage to “physical things that happen” to “what gravity does to us.”

    Crystal, who voiced the character of Mike in this summer’s blockbuster “Monsters University,” also takes a look at his storied career, which included memorable turns in “City Slickers” and “When Harry Met Sally,” and as a nine-time host of the Academy Awards.

    Crystal shared with Katie Couric how sleep problems have racked him since he was born.

    “Basically I’ve been up since 1948,” he said. “The old joke is that I sleep like a baby: I’m up every 2 hours.”
