Katie Couric - Sean Parker and the Parker Foundation Celebrate the Launch of The Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy held at a private estate in Los Angeles. - Los Angeles, California, United States - Wednesday 13th April 2016
The British presenter is nearly two months into his 'Late Late Show' career, and has been bowled over by how well it has gone down with US audiences.
Two months or so into his new career as an American talk show host, James Corden has been talking about settling into the job, coping with the transatlantic move and the reaction to his show, which has been very popular so far.
36 year old Corden made his debut as host of ‘The Late Late Show’ on CBS at the end of March after replacing the retiring Craig Ferguson, and quickly won plaudits for his warm, friendly presenting style. Speaking with Heat magazine, he said he was “gobsmacked” by the response from audiences.

Sofia Vergara has brushed off criticism about a "sexist" and "offensive" stunt at the Primetime Emmy Awards on Monday (25th August). She was filmed standing on a podium which has led many to claim she was promoting the objectification of women. However, Vergara believes her pedestal appearance was quite the opposite.

So when a number of commentators claimed her stunt at the Emmys was "sexist" and "offensive", Vergara brushed the criticism off with her usual confidence.
Sofia Vergara's stunt at the Primetime Emmy Awards has been called "sexist" by some commentators.

The news anchor married fiancee John in the Hampton’s this past weekend.
Congratulations are in order for news anchor Katie Couric who married fiancee John Molner in a intimate, romantic Hamptons ceremony over the weekend. The couple, who have been engaged for 10 months married in front of friends and family, including Couric's two daughters, Ellie and Carrie. Of course thanks to her lengthily broadcasting career, Katie’s one of the most famous women in America, but her new husband John may have to start getting used to the limelight. Come to think of it, what do we actually know about John Molner?
Katie Couric, now Mrs John Molner
He may have made headline news this weekend after marrying ‘America’s sweetheart’, but little is known about the new Mr Katie Couric. The 50 year financier may not be a household name like his wife, but that doesn’t mean he’s not also very successful in his own right. We can imagine that some men might have found themselves intimidated by a woman as successful as Couric, but for Molner it didn't seem to pose a problem. A high flyer in the financial world, Molner is currently head of mergers and acquisitions at Brown Brothers Harriman, a New York-based investment bank and securities firm. Yes it might not sound as glamorous as delivering the news to millions all over the world everyday, but Molner himself is actually quite a catch.
