Barbara Walters upcoming appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show will center around a recent admission of her affair with then-married Massachusetts Senator Edward Brooke.
The affair happened over 30 years ago, and lasted for a few years during the ’70s. Brooke was the first African-American to be elected to the Senate by popular vote, and at the time, Walters was still co-hosting NBC’s Today show.
I was going to make some ill-advised Jungle Fever reference, but, well, you’re all smarter than that (I hope). Needless, to say, I’m repulsed that anyone, ever, would have wanted to engage in sexual congress with Barbara Walters.
