Tune-In Alert: Heidi Klum Opens Up on "Katie" Wednesday

Former news anchor and longtime television personality Katie Couric kicks off her new daytime talk show this week with episodes celebrating women who are reinventing themselves. I'm a little biased, but I can't think of a better guest than serial multi-tasker Heidi Klum, who continues to push through tabloid chatter to helm the "Project Runway" franchise as host and executive producer, start new business ventures, and raise four children as a now-single mother.

I was in the audience as Heidi and Katie sat down last week to discuss Heidi's divorce from musician Seal, what it's like parenting under the scrutiny of the paparazzi, the circumstances that led Heidi to superglue her toenails to her feet — a story that's simultaneously gross and fascinating — and the weird good-luck charm she carried during years of overseas travel. (I'm not overstating. It's really weird.) And did you know Michael Kors refused to book Heidi for modeling work early in her career? After checking out their chat, make sure to stick around when Katie reveals a special surprise she and Heidi put together for one lucky audience member.

Heidi's episode of "Katie" airs on Wednesday, September 12. You can find out when Heidi's "Katie" interview airs in your area by checking your local listings.
