Barbara Walters Was the Mistress of Cheating Senator Edward Brooke

May 2, 2008

barbara-walters.JPG 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?

    I think Barbara Walters is thinking of the same person she was thinking of when she was with the Senator—HERSELF. She continues to have the ability to disregard what her actions have done and continue to do in resurrecting what was and now has become a reminder of a painfully debilitating time in the life of MRS Brooke. Truth is MRS Brooke will always have her name and now we know Barbara Sluters real name

    Unnecessary Comments, everybody usually has something. They just don’t confess it, whatever the situation..

    If we all had a microscope on us, I wonder how the world would judge us? None of us are perfect, not even close! Some of us are worse than others, and I hope those of you that judged her so harshly when you voted have a pristine conscience, but I really, REALLY doubt it.

    I don’t really care about her affair, everyone is human. What bothers me is that she is telling everyone about it. It seems like a ploy to sell more copies of her new book. Also, both her and this married senator are public figures. When you have so many people doing these things in the public eye, the public will eventually become numb to it and seemingly accepting of these actions. I think she should have kept this to herself. Maybe she was clearing her conscious. She lost my respect.

    Barbara Walter’s life was influenced greatly by her older sister and she’s written a beautiful memoir about her life. I read another memoir of a life influence by a sibling that I recommend highly – I actually liked it even more. The memoir is “”My Stroke of Insight”” by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor. Dr Taylor became a Harvard brain scientist to find the cause and cure for schizophrenia because her older brother was a sufferer. Then, crazy as life can be, Dr. Taylor had a stroke at age 37. What was amazing was that her left brain was shut down by the stroke – where language and thinking occur – but her right brain was fully functioning. She experienced bliss and nirvana and the way she writes about it (or talks about it in her now famous TED talk) is incredible.

    What I took away from Dr. Taylor’s book above all, and why I recommend it so highly, is that you don’t have to have a stroke or take drugs to find the deep inner peace that she talks about. Her book explains how. “”I want what she’s having””, and thanks to this wonderful book, I can!
