And they jolly well did! Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and LA Police Chief Charlie Beck undertook Courtney’s request to dance for a 2-year-old suffering from Cerebral Palsy. This gave the Dare to Dance campaign an obvious regional attention.

She talks of eating healthy, working out and setting personal targets to gain back her figure.

Courtney is also a devout yogi and meditator. She is a patron of Los Angeles-based meditation studio, Unplug Meditation.

Courtney married CBS News correspondent, Carter Evans, in 2005. They have two children together, a son named Cash, and a daughter named Cam.

What brought Courtney’s marriage with Carter Evans to public spotlight was when Carter was held under a “deadly confrontation between a suspect and San Bernardino County Sheriff.” Carter, a news reporter himself, was covering the Christopher Dorner manhunt for KCAL-TV in 2013 when he found himself amid a terrific gun battle. A few days later, Courtney remarked of the incident, “I was just putting our little kids down for a nap…Then I heard from our friends: "Carter is in a gun battle!" And I was like, "What!?”” She recalled that she was worried about her two children, should anything unfortunate happen to Carter.

If anything, the incident was believed to strengthen the couple’s marriage. Despite public speculation of a happy marriage, the couple divorced in 2016. The real reason behind the divorce is not apparent yet. On the bright side, however, Courtney shares an amicable friendship with her ex-hubby. Both Courtney and Carter seem unhappy about the divorce. They are both passionate about their kids and seem to find common grounds regarding child care.
