Dear Katie Couric,

Dorothy Hammill called and she wants her haircut back.

Seriously, whoever told you to do this to your hair:

hates you. Like a lot.

Unless they said, "You know, I'm thinking something really butch-ish, kind of 80s...maybe we could work a mullet in somehow? Something that will age you 20 years instantly!" they were completely lying to your ass. Because it is HORRIBLE.

Horrible. I didn't even recognize you.

Why did you do this? You're cute. That's your thing. No shame in it, not even for a journalist. Better to be cute than to look like a 65 year old lesbian. Come on now.

I'm going to trust that you had your doubts, and that some jealous bitch (or perhaps a pack of them, they do travel like that) said, "No Katie, it looks really pretty. I swear. It's very flattering, I love it." while snickering behind your back.

Oh well, it will grow. Let's hope it does it quick; it's painful to look at.

Sincerely,
Ashley

P.S. Good job on the inauguration coverage! I did enjoy it, other than your hair and Aretha's hat. In fact, I think the hat would've been a better solution for you...

Edited to add: My P.S. got me to thinking and I decided to try Aretha's hat on you. I think you'll find it's a better solution while waiting for that mess to grow out. We'll all understand:

OMG....that is not a flattering hair cut. You made me laugh so hard. I needed that. Your tales of Big Kid keep my husband in stitches.

Serious Shopaholic said...

Oh my gosh! I thought the EXACT same thing! She is usually so stylish. I'm beginning to wonder if Aretha was sporting the same style under her horrible hat & just thought it was the lesser of the two evils--& seriously, wasn't it? I think Katie should just shave it & start all over.

Celi said...

LOL. I didn't recognize her either. The hat makes it sooo much better!

Lipstick said...

Oh gasp! Katie's hair really is lesbo-esque.

Is it really that bad? I don't think I would have even noticed if you hadn't said anything. Maybe I just don't know what her hair normally looks like...

Impulsive Addict said...

Amen sister! Love it!

Leslie said...

Love the hat on katie!! Good job!

Paige said...

you are such a trip, maybe you should go with me to get my hairs did

cw2smom said...

OMG! Ellen put on that same hat today and it was hysterical!!! What was Aretha thinkin'? Lord Almighty that is a stupid hat! LOL! I don't think Katie's hair looks too bad in this photo, but that's all I've seen. She is cute and can pull off cutesy haircuts, despite her age. Man..I don't think I will ever cut my hair like that lest I be thought of as a lesbian! Heaven forbid! I be liken me men!! ;P Lisa

Well I Do Declare said...

Love the photoshop! That is freaking hilarious!!!

Anniebanannie said...

Dude, the Aretha hat totally made me lose it. Wasn't expecting that one! Hilarious.

Jen said...

Did Katie have plastic surgery? The hair is throwing me off, and I haven't watched her in a while, but I'm thinking she looks different besides the hair also. Maybe she had PS years ago and I've missed the information boat. Who knows.

Mama Kat said...

Oh come on Ashley. First Pamela and now Katie?? When will the madness stop.

Jelousy is not a pretty color on you. Just stop it.

GFCF Mommy Octopus AKA Hungry Mommy said...

Bwahahahahaha!

Amo said...

Okay, I was giggling through the entire post, but the hat did it. My eldest just came in to see what was so damn funny that I would interrupt his Max and Ruby with laughter.

He didn't like the hat or hair cut either.

Tendrils said...

OMG! My coffee just about came out my nose! Great picture! Hilarious post!

Sassy Cass said...

The hairs are bad! Katie has always been so cute and with it. This haircut doesn't do her any favors. That hat is great!

Holly in Tampa said...

I don't think it's THAT bad. It's very circa 80's, but it doesn't look horrible.
That hat does offer an improvement though.

Shannie said...

I'm with Kat on this one, Ashley... When will your jealousy induced bashing end??? ;-)

*running off to dig up old pics of you to prove your hair doesn't always look great*

Carrie said...

That is too funny! And I thought the same thing when I saw it. Who would volunteer to do that to their hair?

Namine said...

I have no idea who she is!! But this post is soo funny!!

Z's Mom said...

Oh my gosh you have me rolling with this one....

Melodie said...

Okay, I don't watch Katie Couric, but I did see a preview of some election coverage and I couldn't believe what I saw. I swear, sitting there in her suit jacket, she looked like a little boy who was playing dress up with his dad's clothes. She looks horrible!

Sarah said...

Haha..the hair, the hat..love it!

Shannon said...

I think she looks like Hillary's little sister with that cut...

katie b said...

OMG - I just laughed so hard at the hat on Katie I peed myself a little!

sportzmom said...

OMG! That picture is too funny. You made my day!

Kimberly said...

I was thinking they could have went in a way better direction with that cut... I think she could pull off that last Princess Di cut no problem and it would look really cute on her.
