Prankster Amy Schumer had the opportunity of sitting at the "good table" next to Katie Couric at Glamour's Women of the Year Awards. Before she knew it, Amy's admirer left her phone unattended on the table, open to text messages with her husband. Without even thinking, breathing, or eating bread, Schumer shot a text to Couric's new husband some pretty sensitive material. Soon enough, Katie was being ushered out of the party by her husband. Moral of the story is, if Amy Schumer's in the room, keep your phone in your pocket.
Update: Katie Couric saw Amy's confession on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and is plotting her revenge.
