All of you are just plain ignorant. She doesn't need the PR. She probably doesn't even care what we think. She probably got asked the question because it's what people want to hear, that she's no better than the rest of us.

Why is everyone else ignorant? How is this news article different from any other? It's posted, we read, then comment. Just like you did.

When people reach their 70s and 80s they start assuming that they can say and do whatever they please.

Babs is just another example of an old lady descending into senility and losing her sense of decorum.

She's entering her second childhood and losing her sense of restraint, that's all.

Pity, really.

Just the thought of the two of them together is a sick enough vision dancing around in my head... no more please! Oh and just an afterthought but we needed to know this WHY? lolololol Sen Brooke has been lifelong friends of a family i know very well and this was no secret at all! Guess she thought she better say something before someone put it out there in a tell all book; She would have never been with him if he looked like Yaphet Koto i betcha or wasn't a Senator. White women usually want high profile monied black men; that's just the way it's always been. This is not for those people who have actually married for love; i'm just expressing an opinion here. Bobbi and Ed sitting in a tree; k i s s i n gee! LOLOLOLOL

Ms. Walters, WHY NOW? She has NO respect for herself or for Sen. Brooke's family. C'mon, is she that desperate for ratings? I use to think she was a classy lady but now when I think of her one word comes to mind, NASTY!!

I don't think she is focusing on rating but on her own pocketbook...buy her book is the focus.The question was posed becaue of the book there is no other reason for Oprah to ask it. Someone said the question was asked because people want to know...LOl People want to know who Walters had sex with....please not a pretty mental picture.
Ms. High and Mighty should have been her courageous self and talk about this at a time in history that it could have served some purpose other then lining her pocketbook with money. She was ashamed of her relationship is what it sounds like to me and for a women who is supposed to be a icon of liberalism that is disgraceful.
I won't buy her book.

It's part of her life that she probably views as a highlight so,(sigh) I guess that now in her twilight she wants everyone to know.
The problem with it is that she is not attractive (nor ever was) and no one wants this visual.

What is the matter with people in this world today? Barbara is just looking for some publicity for her new book. Who cares what she and Senator Brooke did. Lets just leave this alone.

Barbara happens to be a Jewish woman who has sense enough to know that race matters not The man was a Congressman. And just what do you do for a living Allan? Security, maintenance, perhaps under or unemployed? We have no choice in determining our race -- that includes you Allan my brotha. By the way, perhaps you can shed light on why you share a first name with AFRICAN poet Allan Paton. Kudos to Barbara Walters, a woman known for quality, dignity and refinement. Have a bangin'day Allan my brotha.

Barbra is the first to remind everyone race mattes when she drags someone through the mud. And what does it matter to you what I do for a living? Are security and maintenance supposed to be dishonorable professions? Why should I give a rats hind end some black poet has the same first name? Maybe its his slave masters name? You have a banging day too brotha!

It's as simple as this. With Barack Obama campaigning for the presidential nomination, Barbara Walter's wants to get in on what's happening now. Coming out 30 years later that she had an affair with a prominent black senator before it's time shows everyone that she knew before we all did, that many black men are smart, educated, "exciting", "gifted" and charming. It's her way of telling all of America and beyond that her vote wil go to BARACK OBAMA. Wait and see. You heard it hear first.
She is still a Ho but

And on Larry King's show last night, did you see how she tried to work her way around the insincerity she showed toward her sister who had just died before she went on stage?

What an insensitive bitch! If she was going to tell the story, then she should have composed a response to the question, "Did you speak at the event after being told your sister just died?"

She's a dumbass and given much too much credit for a career that is just a celebrated talk show host.

I'll bet she's been hell on wheels to work with for years, but nobody's had the courage to go up against the old, evil bitch with power--who probably slept around to promote her career advancement. Sorry, but Barbara is not a hero for any woman.

AND! I believe she was jealous of how cute Star Jones looked after her weight loss. The poor fat girl finally did something about her weight, found love (although temporary), and was happy, so the old biddies of the view decided to push her out and rain on her parade. Couldn't they just have cut the girl some slack? She wasn't vicious after all. Let her have her moment in the sun without being burdened with your anger, jealousy, and hatred. So typical of envious coworkers.

So now Barbara relishes in Star's misfortune in her career and love life on Larry King's show, in an attempt to further embarrass Star. Further proving her pitiful, despicable, twisted, true nature. Can't she just leave the woman alone? Isn't Star suffering enough without you twisting the knife in further.

I'm sure Star will find another television project to participate in if she desires it. She never should have gone back to CourtTV (now TruTV or something) anyway. She is a celebrity in the entertainment field now, and should have been more patient for a project in that area. Going back to CourtTV was like going backwards and was doomed to fail.

She's got a great sense of fashion and style, so should have looked for a project on E! or something similar. She probably would have had more success and then the slut Walters would not have the ammunition to go on television and bash her with her failure.
