Barbara Walters Fist Pumps Her Way To Rock Bottom

Poor Barbara Walters. I’m imagining what it must be like after a long, successful career, to have to humble herself to the likes of the cast of “Jersey Shore“for the “10 Most Fascinating People of 2010″ special last week. She called it a “first” for her, but we all know that is a…

Oprah Cries When Asked By Barbara Walters About Lesbian Rumors

“TISSUE PLEASE!” That’s Oprah — a rare one to raise her voice — at some lackey off-camera when she starts to cry during an interview with Barbara Walters. Babs had just asked Oprah about her super-duper-close friendship with Gayle King, which sent the tears a-flowin’. Said the big O:

“She’s the mother…

Even though artists have been paying homage to the human form since the beginning, nudity and sex in art still cause a major commotion. Two works of art — one newish and one really old — are getting a lot of attention lately and making some people a little uncomfortable.

Justin Bieber Wants Barbara Walters

How is it that “cougar” has become such normal terminology, and meanwhile there’s no compact way to describe a younger dude who likes his women on the mature side? Well, whatever that word may be, Justin Bieber sure seems to be one. When he appeared on “The View” yesterday, he was asked, “What…

Barbara Walters Regrets Asking Ricky Martin If He Was Gay

I’m so glad I’m not a celebrity because I know at some point, I’d want to slap Barbara Walters. That bitch is nosy!

Barbara Walters Gives “Bruno” Two Enthusiastic Thumbs Down

Barbara Walters is having a very educational week. Sexually, we mean. Last week Margaret Cho visited “The View” and gave Barbara a lesson on the G-spot.

Barbara Walters Audiobook Is G-Rated

When Barbara Walter’s book Audition came out last month, all anyone could talk about was her relationships with Alan Greenspan and Massachusetts Senator Edward Brooke.
