Quote of the Day: Rachel Smith

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Miss USA Rachel Smith drops some gems on future career plans and how she celebrated when she won the Miss USA title:

I always wanted to be a reporter — maybe some TV. Who knows? Some serious news. I just don’t want to end up like Katie Couric. I want people to take me seriously.”

“I was wearing, like, a hot pink Rocawear sweatsuit and paraded around my room at the Waldorf, just dancing with my crown!”

This broad sounds dumb as hell. Bragging that you were dancing around your hotel room in a hot pink Rocawear sweatsuit and making statements like this will most likely qualify you as non-serious status. This is who is “representing” the ladies of our country, Katie Couric is the last person she needs to be taking jabs at. SMH.

    This girl is ridiculous. She can only dream about being as serious a newswoman as Katie Couric. I mean PLEASE, she’s a pageant girl. She better looked Penthouse’s number and stop fussin before her minutes are over.

  • Not You

    Why is she dissing Katie? Umm, know your broadcasting history, little girl. Katie Couric is the FIRST weekday solo female prime time news anchor on a major network. On your best day, you couldn’t carry Katie’s used hot pink panties.

    Kids today! No respect!

  • loveyoulongtyme

    Katie Couric is PAID!!! Not to mention, Katie was taken more seriously as a morning anchor women than many women in primetime news. Katie is reporting from Iraq as we speak! Homegirl needs to fall back. She’ll be lucky if she lands a gig as a co-host on extra, let alone as a journalist on katie’s level.

  • mia_uno

    Ditto to everyone! What the hell is she talkin about? She should be *ecstatic* to become a small fraction of what Katie Couric has become!!! She is a legend! this girl is a piece of a nobody!!! Makin out with Terrence Howard. and don’t nobody care about no damn, Miss USA!! this is NOT 1982!!!

  • Butterfly

    LOL @ at all the comments. Way to burn bridges before you even get started. But Rachel interned for Oprah, so maybe she thinks she has Oprah in her corner. Regardless, respect your elders.

  • Huh?

    She lost me with the Katie Couric comment. The CBS Evening News isn’t doing that great in the ratings, but Katie made history when she took over that role. This girl is confused.

  • Astrid

    She sounds lame. Bless her heart. That’s probably why she fell on her butt during the Miss Universe Pageant.

    Okay..so her comment on Katie Couric is stupid! She wishes she could be like Katie Couric! She must be smoking crack or something to even make that statement!

  • crest

    i have a big crush on this girl she grew up in my hometown but the first comment wasnt good. katies ratings stink but she is still katie couric. im sure oprah can help blow rachel up since rachel goes to africa with oprah and she rachel also talked about oprahs favorite book “the secret” helping her win the crown

  • ohnoudient

    Somebody tell this chile, Katie Couric is pulling down $20 million a year.

  • ko

    She doesn’t want to be like katie couric?!!! Well based on her above comments shes got nothing to worry about

  • moxpoe1

    ?, Katie Couric is a good success story. She actually worked her way up.

  • helltothanaw

    Effin’ moron. My gawd, she’s so dense.

  • Nic

    I don’t see anything wrong with what she said. What was she supposed to be wearing around her hotel room? And Katie Couric may be getting paid but she has had the lowest ratings of all the “Big Three” network news anchors since she started.

    Rachel is probably saying she wants to be more like Soledad O’Brien(CNN).

  • Nic

    Okay. I had to go find the original article where she make the quote…and I retract my support. I still like Rachel though, but…

    Miss USA Rachel Smith


    I always wanted to be a reporter — maybe some TV. Who knows? Some serious news — but some modeling, too,” she said at the Women in Entertainment Empowerment Network event last week.

    “I just don’t want to end up like Katie Couric. I want people to take me seriously.”


    (Couric’s rep later responded: “If she continues to offer such profound insight, she will not have to worry about anyone taking her seriously.”)

    Pagent girls are pretty dumb as a rule. I’ve met Shana Mokeler and my boy dated Tamiko Nash….both were cute, but two of teh DUMBEST chicks I’ve ever met. For real, its like part of what they look for in a winner.
