Barbara Walters had an affair with a married Senator in the 70s. That common skank! Barbara opened up to Oprah in an episode that airs this Tuesday about her relationship with Senator Edward Brooke, the first black person to be elected to the Senate by popular vote.
Babs said the affair went on for several years. She said they both knew that it would ruin their careers if the public found out. Babs said she didn’t know if she was in love with him at the time, but she knows she was “infatuated” with him. She went on to tell O, “He was exciting. He was brilliant. It was exciting times in Washington.”
The affair ended in 1978. Edward Brooke later divorced his wife, but never remarried. The Associated Press tried to contact him for comment, but their calls were not returned.
Wouldn’t that have been sooo hot if Babs told Oprah, “Oprah, we had a secret love child too. A daughter. We named her Opra-“ Oh wait, this was the 70s? Oprah’s too old then. FUCK! There goes my scandal.
Babs is a slut and I’ve always known it! You know, I need proof of this or it didn’t happen. Show us a sex tape, Babs! Oh shit. What did I just say?
