From what she said in her later years,she humped any guy that moved--and who was a power broker.Had to be famous,a big wig--married or not--from what I remember,but she had a busy beaver,lol.

Back in those days,liberalism wasn't as obvious to me as it is now on TV--or I didn't notice it as a kid.

Part of Walter's becoming an icon of sorts,was Gilda Radner's impression of her--complete with exaggerated speech impediment--on "Saturday Night Live".

Try doing that now.
There's a black on cbs news with a bizarre voice-Jeff Pegues.

How do you get a job on television with a voice that sounds like a cross between Redd Foxx and nails on a blackboard?

(ny daily news)In a sizzling new memoir, Barbara Walters reveals she had a passionate affair with a married(black)senator.

Walters, 78, writes in her book, "Auditions," that the affair with former Massachusetts Sen. Edward Brooke in the 1970s almost ended both their careers.

At the time, the twice-divorced Walters was a rising television news star and co-host of the "Today" show. When her lover, who's now 88, told the newswoman she was the oldest woman he had ever been with, she wanted to say - but never did - "Oh yeah? Well you are the blackest man I have ever been with," Walters writes.

(GRA:One could interpret that a couple of ways.)

Brooke, the first black member of the U.S. Senate since Reconstruction, was so in love with Walters he told his wife he wanted a divorce.

(GRA:"Baby,if I marry Barbara Walters,I'll be WHITE--my dream come true")

Enraged, his wife tried to reveal the affair to the National Enquirer, Walters writes. A phone call from a worried friend reminding Walters that Brooke was up for reelection the next year and that her job could be in jeopardy persuaded Walters to call it quits.

"I slowly began asking myself if we could ever be married. Would such a marriage destroy his career? Would it destroy mine?" Walters wonders in the book.

GRA:What a story to tell.It showed she had zero respect for herself.

Barbara did not age so very well on her later life and she did suffer terribly from some sort of illness she was however a real gadfly to a certain extent always trying to prove something that maybe wasn’t true

She certainly did have her day in the sun
