A-Listers surprise Katie Couric’s husband, John Molner, 60
We heard Katie Couric hosted a 60th birthday party for husband John Molner.
Apparently, Molner is a big fan of magic tricks, so the legendary broadcaster hired juggler Steve Cohen to impress his pals at the Flatiron Club.
Sources say the revelers included familiar faces including Rosanna Scotto, Bob Costas and Sex and the City star John Corbett, while the couple’s favorite musician Peter Cincotti played songs including “You Don’t Know Me” and his own composition, “The Keyboard Killer”.
We were told that one evening the club released a video recorded for the party, which included messages from well-known friends of the couple, to the famous tune from ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg admitted, “I can be your father, and then some!”, and Norah O’Donnell, current occupant of Couric’s former CBS Evening News chair, said, “May you have more martinis and birds in the coming year… As they say, get high and let it fly.
Hugh Jackman was fooling around trying to come up with an excuse not to come before he decided to help his daughter with her homework.
George Stephanopoulos and Ali Wentworth appeared together, with the comic quipping “I just celebrated 40. I wish I knew what 60 was like.”
Richard Marx and Daisy Fuentes, Michael J. Fox and Julianne Moore showed up to congratulate them on their birthdays, and “Family Guy” showrunner Rich Appel “hysterically” “gave lame excuses as to why he couldn’t come from Los Angeles,” including the fact that that Whole Foods was introducing a new smoothie that day.
Kristen Chenoweth ended the song by singing “Happy birthday Mr. Molner” in the style of Marilyn Monroe serenading JFK.
