Katie Couric admits editing Ruth Bader Ginsburg comments from an interview after she criticized people who kneeled for the National Anthem.

In her new memoir, Going There, Couric writes that she edited Ginsburg's comments about kneelers while working on a story for Yahoo! News in 2016.

The late Supreme Court Justice reportedly said, people who kneel for the national anthem were "stupid and arrogant."

Ginsburg had also said that kneelers -- like Eric Reid, left, and Kaepernick, right -- showed "contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life"

However, Couric said she removed the comments from her interview because Ginsburg, who was 83 at the time, was "elderly" and probably didn't understand the question.

Couric said she wanted to "protect" Ginsburg who was from a different era in America and the issue of racial justice was a "blind spot" for her.

Ginsburg was often criticized for not hiring any Black staffers to work in her office at the Supreme Court.

Ginsburg died of complications related to her long battle with pancreatic cancer on September 18, 2020 at age 87.

She was succeeded by former appeals court Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who was appointed to the SCOTUS by former President Donald Trump.

Katie Couric's bombshell memoir, "Going There," has been banned on CBS for its hateful and vindictive content.

For decades Couric's bubbly personality and professional demeanor endeared her to millions of television viewers.

However, critics say her new memoir exposes her as a vengeful narcissist with a mean attitude toward female colleagues.

According to the New York Post, Couric's girl-next-door demeanor was just an act.

Couric was booked to promote her memoir on "CBS This Morning" with Gayle King -- until CBS News execs and producers read the memoir and canned her interview.

"Nobody can understand why Katie did this," a senior news producer told The NY Post. "She's ruining her legacy."

In her memoir, Couric shredded her competition and cast herself as an enemy of professional women.

She drops names and drags her female colleagues, while claiming to be blissfully unaware of rumors about Harvey Weinstein or Fox News CEO Roger Ailes.

Couric claims she never heard a thing about Weinstein, while feigning ignorance about Roger Ailes: "Who knew he was a monster?"

Similarly, she handled sexual predator Matt Lauer with kid gloves, claiming she "heard the whispers" about Lauer from women "he damaged."

"I knew Matt loved beautiful women... he could charm the pants (as it were) off any celebrity," she wrote.

On the day Matt Lauer was fired, Couric texted him, "I am crushed, I love you, and care about you deeply."

She removed her kid gloves for her female competition.

Couric was so desperate to top Diane Sawyer's morning TV ratings that she fumed, "That woman must be stopped!"

"I loved that I was getting under Diane's skin," she writes of her former rival.

Couric claims Sawyer exploited the late pop icon Whitney Houston in an exclusive interview.

"There was a very fine line between a revealing interview and the exploitation of troubled, often traumatized people in service of tawdry tidbits and sensational sound bites (e.g., Diane bearing down on an agitated Whitney Houston about eating disorders and drug use, which yielded the memorable comeback 'crack is whack')."

Emily Ratajkowski blames memory loss for waiting nearly a decade to accuse singer Robin Thicke of groping her breasts.

She now claims she only remembered the 2013 incident on the set of the "Blurred Lines" music video after Thicke recently blocked her on Instagram.

Ratajkowski, 30, made the shocking claim against the 44-year-old singer in her book "My Body, which is set to be published on November 9.

Ratajkowski claims she was reminded of the groping incident when she noticed Thicke had blocked her on Instagram.

However, the top model has a history of waiting nearly a decade to accuse someone of sexual assault.

In an interview in 2020, Emily accused 71-year-old photographer Jonathan Leder of sexually assaulting her during a photo shoot in 2012.

She told USA Today that she'd hesitated to speak out sooner because she did not want to give Leder publicity.

In her book, Ratajkowski detailed the groping incident on the set.

"Suddenly, out of nowhere, I felt the coolness and foreignness of a stranger's hands cupping my bare breasts from behind," she wrote, according to the Sunday Times of London newspaper. "I instinctively moved away, looking back at Robin Thicke."

"He smiled a goofy grin and stumbled backward, his eyes concealed behind his sunglasses. My head turned to the darkness beyond the set."

She wrote that director, Diane Martel, yelled to her, "Are you OK?"

Martel, who was nominated for the Video of the Year for "Blurred Lines", corroborated Ratajkowski's allegations to the Sunday Times.

"I remember the moment that he grabbed her breasts. One in each hand. He was standing behind her as they were both in profile."

Martel told the Times that the singer had been drinking, and he "sheepishly" apologized after the incident. Martel said she had taken steps to make sure women felt comfortable on her set.

Martel says:

"Robin sheepishly apologized. As if he knew it was wrong without understanding how it might have felt for Emily."

Tamron Hall

Tameka Foster Raymond discussed her new memoir "Here I Stand... in a Beautiful State" on Wednesday's edition of "Tamron Hall."

Tamron Hall was joined by celebrity stylist and ex-wife of singer Usher Raymond, Tameka Foster Raymond to discuss her new memoir "Here I Stand... in a Beautiful State" and how she coped with the tragic loss of her son, Kile Glover, almost 10 years ago.

Tameka Foster Raymond on her reaction to her son's grave prognosis and how she remained hopeful:

"Oh yeah, there were several moments. But I was very vigilant. I would say in the hospital - I didn't let you into the room if your energy was off. If you were speaking anything but life over my son, you couldn't come in. So when the doctor would come in and say, 'we've been watching' I'd be like, 'hey, change your tone,' because I really think you know there's power in your words. And there's power in the tongue and I felt like he could hear you. So it was very hard, they told me, you know, early on, and it was very hard to hear."

Tameka Foster Raymond on how she learned to process her son's death:

"I did come to a realization that we all have a certain amount of time on Earth, whatever our time is, we don't know how much time we have. And I realized that he had fulfilled his contract, he had done what he was supposed to do on earth. And I know it's hard when people hear me say that because they go, 'How can you say that? He's only 11!' But he had made such an impact and he had such good energy and he was such a good person. I remember we would go see horror movies and Kile would say, 'I'm not going to watch that!' Like he didn't even like that energy in his headspace. So I knew he was amazing..."

Tameka Foster Raymond on overcoming years of denial:

"It took a long time to get here. I probably figured this out in the last year. I spent 10 years not believing it, in denial, still throwing parties, you know what I mean. I would give the most huge something on his birthday. I would go in, like rent a whole museum and start this and balloons and we'd have food and cake and performances. Like I would go crazy about this thing I was like, 'This is my right, he's still here!' I definitely wasn't in this space. It took a while, it took many losses and me replaying all these different things for me to say, 'our lives are predestined.' I think our path has already been decided. What we're going to be, what we're going to do is already in God's hands."

Tameka was surprised when they insisted there was no way she could be Usher's ex-wife because his wife had died.

The title of the book is inspired by Usher's fifth studio album, Here I Stand (2008).

The album was followed up by Usher's 6th studio release, Raymond v. Raymond, which was recorded in 2009 amid their contentious divorce.

Usher married Tameka, his former stylist, in 2007 after dating for two years. They share two sons, Usher "Cinco" Raymond V, 13, and Naviyd Ely Raymond, 12.

Usher filed for divorce in June 2009 in Atlanta.

Tameka said her book will clear up many misconceptions about her life after divorce.

She said the book's title is "a double-entendre. Here I stand after going through all the media crap, the divorce, the loss, the grief."

Here I Stand ... in a Beautiful State is available for pre-order beginning July 25, 2021, online at https://www.tamekaraymond.com. Hardback copies retail for $26.00 and paperback copies retail for $21.00.

Mariah Carey didn't have sex with her billionaire fiancé James Packer, according to her new book.

The "Touch My Body" singer and James got engaged in January 2016 after a whirlwind romance - but they called off their wedding that October without explanation.

Mariah never mentioned her relationship with the Australian media mogul in her new memoir, and the star says that's because their engagement has no significance to her, as they never had a "physical relationship".

"If it was a relationship that mattered, it's in the book. If not, it didn't occur," she tells The Guardian. "We didn't have a physical relationship, to be honest with you."

This may explain why James packed up his things and left Mariah standing at the altar. A man can only hold his horses for so long.

The 50-year-old Aries previously claimed she only slept with five people in her life. She was married twice - to Tommy Mottola and Nick Cannon - and shares 2 kids with Nick. She is currently in a relationship with her back-up dancer and choreographer Bryan Tanaka, 37.

Asked if she agrees with claims that she's "high-maintenance," Mariah snapped, "You know what? I don't give a s**t. I f**king am high-maintenance because I deserve to be at this point. That may sound arrogant, but I hope you frame it within the context of coming from nothing."

She added: "If I can't be high-maintenance after working my a** off my entire life, oh, I'm sorry – I didn't realize we all had to be low-maintenance. Hell, no! I was always high-maintenance, it's just I didn't have anyone to do the maintenance when I was growing up!"

Mariah's memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey, is in stores now.
