Among the topics she's expected to address: what life is like with daughter Maxwell Drew (born May 1); her efforts to lose the weight she gained during her pregnancy and her journey to get back in shape as part of the Weight Watchers family; and how she's juggling being a mom and running a very successful fashion business.
"I think anybody who's gone through a pregnancy, after they have the baby, it's like, 'I need to do something about this,' " Simpson, who's engaged to Eric Johnson, told PEOPLE in May. "For me, I really want to do something that is a lifestyle, because in the past, I've been known to yo-yo diet."
Simpson, who has been drinking lots of water, has been keeping fans posted on her weight-loss progress and various work commitments via Twitter. She recently Tweeted: "That's a wrap! Just finished shooting my first @weightwatchers commercial. Stay tuned…"
Meanwhile, joining Simpson on Katie's premiere episode: singer Sheryl Crow, who will talk about her recently-diagnosed brain tumor. Jennifer Lopez, Barbra Streisand, Heidi Klum and others are also scheduled to sit down with Couric for her talk show.
The longtime co-anchor of NBC's Today and anchor of the CBS Evening News will mark her new beginning by featuring conversations with women who are also marking similar transitions in their lives.
