Larry King Surprises Katie Couric To Clear Up Dating Past

Remember when Katie Couric revealed that she once went on a terrible-sounding date with Larry King some years ago? Well, King surprised Couric on her daytime talk show to set the record straight on the failed romance.

Couric appeared on Jimmy Kimmel's late night talk show last month and detailed her awkward date with King. They went out for dinner one night in Washington D.C. Couric said that King just underwent gastric bypass surgery and ordered veal poached in chicken stock at an Italian restaurant where older men brought their "nieces."

And in the most awkward of awkward moments, Couric said that King took her back to his apartment, where the walls were adorned with accolades honoring the famed broadcaster, and tried to kiss her! "He lunged," Couric said.

On "Katie," King did not dispute going on a date with Couric -- but he said he had no recollection of taking her back to his place. Will he admit to going in for a kiss? We'll have to wait and see.
