(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 re-election 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.
