Is anyone else but me following this story? Why, in God's name, would a 78 year old Barbara Walters choose to reveal an affair (years ago) with the married Senator Edward Brooke in her new autobiography? What purpose could revealing this information at this late date possibly serve at this point in Ms. Walters' life? Star Jones, who was also mentioned in the book, said this: "It is a sad day when an icon like Barbara Walters, in the sunset of her life, is reduced to publicly branding herself as an adulterer, humiliating an innocent family with accounts of her illicit affair and speaking negatively against me all for the sake of selling a book. It speaks to her true character." For once, I agree with Star Jones.
