Barbara Walters was getting boned by a brotha

Posted by Media Outrage on May 1, 2008

Barbara Walters is letting the truth be known with her oh so graceful ass. She was getting it in with a married black senator.

Via AP:

After three decades of keeping mum, Barbara Walters s disclosing a past affair with married U.S. Senator Edward Brooke, whom she remembers as “exciting” and “brilliant.”

Appearing on “Oprah Winfrey Show” scheduled to air Tuesday, Walters shares details of her relationship with Brooke that lasted several years in the 1970s, according to a transcript of the show provided to The Associated Press.

A moderate Republican from Massachusetts who took office in 1967, Brooke was the first African-American to be popularly elected to the Senate. Both he and Walters knew that public knowledge of their affair could have ruined his career as well as hers, Walters says.

At the time, the twice-divorced Walters was a rising star in TV news and co-host of NBC’s “Today” show, but would soon jump to ABC News, where she has enjoyed unrivaled success. Her affair with Brooke, which never before came to light, had ended before he lost his bid for a third term in 1978.

Brooke later divorced, and has since remarried. Calls to a listing for Brooke in Miami by The Associated Press were not immediately returned Thursday.

On “Oprah,” Walters recounts a phone call from a friend who urged her to stop seeing Brooke.

“He said, ‘This is going to come out. This is going to ruin your career,'” then reminded her that Brooke was up for re-election a year later. “‘This is going to ruin him. You’ve got to break this off.'”

Winfrey asks Walters if she was in love.

“I was certainly — I don’t know — I was certainly infatuated.”


“I was certainly involved,” Walters says. “He was exciting. He was brilliant. It was exciting times in Washington.”

Mediaoutrage– It’s something about sitting on Oprah’s couch that just makes people tell all of they ish.

    you know I heard about this before, I could tell she had the fever ! All these white women want more black wood than a rain forrest!!!

  2. Not surprising. Chalk it up to another notch on the black man’s pole. But Walters? She must have been something in her younger years.

    Oprah’s couch makes people crazy. Just look at Tom Cruise and his jumping jacks incident.

    I never would have thunk it. Wow. No wonder she told Sen. Obama he was sexy. Explains a lot.

  4. […] Jones is probably a little unnerved after finding out that Barbara “the brotha boner” Walters included her gastric bypass surgery which shrunk Star from a triple  double digit […]
