Kate Gosselin did it -- so why not Katie Couric?

At Wednesday's Us Weekly's 25 Most Stylish New Yorkers fete in NYC, CBS Evening News anchor (and Today show veteran) Katie Couric shared a new career goal.

"My secret fantasy, sadly, is to be on Dancing With the Stars," Couric, 53, confessed to UsMagazine.com.

"But I don't know, those skimpy outfits!" added the newswoman, who graced the black carpet in a golden Carmen Marc Valvo dress and Stuart Weitzman shoes.

The trim Couric joked: "Seriously, it'd be like, 'Paging Jenny Craig, stat!'"

Other than DWTS, the widowed mother of two daughters isn't a huge fan of reality shows. "My daughter watches Keeping Up with the Kardashians," she said.

"I really don't understand the whole genre to be honest with you. You know, God love them if they're willing to invite people into every aspect of their personal life."

One reality star she'd love to interview: Real Housewives of DC star Michaele Salahi -- a.k.a. the White House party crasher. "I met her in line at the White House State Dinner," Couric recounted. "She took my picture; she was so nice--and it was crazy that she wasn't really invited!"
