Katie and Kate At Maria Shriver Confab

Couric_7.9.jpgFormer NBC News anchor turned California first lady Maria Shriver is finalizing the guest list for her Annual Women’s Conference this fall.

On this list: Katie Couric, Cindy McCain, Elizabeth Edwards, and Kate Gosselin of “John & Kate Plus 8″ (minus John) fame.

According to E!Online, the Gosselin invitation was the idea of Shriver’s daughters who are fans of the show. The invites were sent out five months ago – before the family started making tabloid headlines.

The SF Chronicle reports NBC’s David Gregory will moderate a panel at the event which will include Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and Shriver.
