Veteran journalist Barbara Walters now, finally, admits she had an affair for several years during the 1970’s with then-Senator (and then-married) Edward Brooke. On Tuesday’s Oprah Winfrey show, according to the Associated Press, Walters will discuss the affair as part of the promotion of her new memoir, Audition. Funny how the one thing that can inspire people to voluntarily reveal their cheating ways is self-promotion/money!
Winfrey asks the 78 year-old Walters if she was in love with Brooke, the first African-American popularly elected to the Senate.
“I was certainly – I don’t know – I was certainly infatuated.”
“I was certainly involved,” Walters says. “He was exciting. He was brilliant. It was exciting times in Washington.”
What Barbara is trying to say is that she totally got off on his POWER! Her sexual craving–er, infatuation– was apparently powerful enough that she could justify being THE OTHER WOMAN of the two-timing D.C. insider, despite the fact that being found out could have ruined both of their careers. What will the judgmental ladies of The View have to say about this? More importantly, what do YOU think?
