NEW YORK CITY - Katie Couric, 56, recently talked with Ellen DeGeneres and wondered if she would ever become a wife again.
Well her wonderment is over as her boyfriend of 2 years, 4 months, and 13 days, Johnny "Johnny Boy" Molner popped the question as the two were sitting in a private booth at The Plastered Platypus Lounge in Brooklyn.
Molner, 50, had the waiter put the engagement ring in an olive in Katie's martini. Katie almost swallowed the olive but Johnny managed to gently slap the olive out of her mouth.
Couric was shocked and almost started reciting several well-known expletives but Molner pointed to his ring finger and told her that there was a beautiful shiny ring in her olive.
Katie quickly picked up the olive which had rolled out of her mouth and landed on the butter dish.
She quickly stood up and gave her brand new fiancé a great big hug and she patted his belly button region. She then said that it took her a long, long time but she finally managed to land her very own boy toy.
SIDENOTE. One of Katie's closest friends, Monrovia Chopstinetti, 51, of Hoboken, New Jersey, said that she was thrilled to hear that Katie is finally engaged as she and some of Katie's other friends were getting sick and tired with the pint-sized blonde trying to take their boy toys away from them.
