On Tuesday, May 5 Barbara Walters will tell Oprah and her audience all about her affair with former United States Senator Edward Brooke.  She called him “exciting” and “brilliant.”

For those of you who don’t know,  Brooke was a Republican from Massachusetts who took office in 1967.  He was the first black man to be popularly elected to the Senate.  According to the talk show queen, her affair with Brooke lasted for several years during the 1970’s.

The sit-down with Oprah is part of the release of her memoir called “Audition,” which covers her long career in television, as well as her off-camera life.  

Is it me or don’t you see the hypocrisy in this?  I mean Barbara chastised Monica Lewinsky back in 1999 for her affair with former President Clinton when, in essence, they both did the same thing—-they cheated with a married man.

    • I agree, it is hypocrisy, But something I always notice is that the women are always criticised more heavily than the men. That applies even when it’s the man that is married and the woman single - somehow there is an implied thread that the man was lured by this awful woman.
      And sadly, woman are often the more critical of other women. I think it speaks to something deep within us about fears of losing our own partner.
      It takes two to tango, but if someone has made a solemn committment to another and breaks that then they are the ones that earn most disapproval from me, but then, we never know what goes on in other people’s relationships!

    • I was watching regis & kelly this morning, and they were showing the mag people, discussing the 100 most beautiful people. They also showed an ad for barbara walters, saying “She’s shown you others stories, but now, Get Hers“...or something similar to this...

      I am looking forward to watching that.

      I agree that women are more criticized then men though.
