    Barbara Walters is certainly not immune to Bradley Cooper's charm. While interviewing Cooper for her 10 Most Fascinating People of 2015" special, the 86-year-old Walters reveals that she, like many, has a bit of a crush on the Oscar-nominated star. "I could just sit and stare at you but that would take too much time," she tells Cooper in the interview. "But I, I find you very screwable." Later in the interview, a flirtatious Walters asks if the Joy star, 40, knows he's handsome, adding, "I think you're handsome, I think you're sexy."

    ABC announced Monday that Barbara Walters’s final day co-hosting The View will be Friday, May 16. That same night, ABC will air a two-hour special at 9:00 p.m. ET highlighting her life and career. Walters announced last May that the 2013-2014 season would be her last on the daytime talk show she created in 1997. “In this business there are legends, there are icons, and then there is Barbara Walters,” said Robert A. Iger, Chairman and Chief Executive of The Walt Disney Company in a statement. “She’s a dear friend and colleague as well as someone I deeply admire, and...

    For those who believe in traditional values, Christmas, and the holiday season in general for all those of faith, represent a very special and even sacred time of reflection, gratitude and hope. Unless of course, you are one of the leading voices of the liberal mainstream media and you want to intimate yet again that Barack Obama may be at least a figurative deity here on Earth. Said multi-millionaire, literally limousine-liberal Barbara Walters in response to CNN's further left-leaning Piers Morgan's question about why Obama is struggling so much at the moment: "He made so many promises. We thought he...

    As a host of the daytime talk show "The View," Barbara Walters questioned why politicians, including the presidents, swear on a Bible while taking office when there is separation of church and state. "That is very true, but it starts almost with the oath of office which usually ends with 'So help me God,'" Walters said during the talk show, after actress Jane Seymour's remarks over a new political ad by Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor of Arkansas in which he apologizes for backing President Barack Obama's signature health care law, or "Obamacare," and also highlights the importance of the Bible...

    President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama sat down with Barbara Walters for a wide-ranging interview that aired Friday night, and the first issue Walters brought up was the president’s record low approval numbers. But Obama just shrugged them aside as the hazards of the job, joking, “The good thing about when you’re down is that usually, you’ve got nowhere to go but up.” Walters brought up Obama getting booed at a basketball game. The First Lady said, “It’s part of the job,” and said she’s gotten booed as well, though Walters did point out her numbers have always been...

    As NewsBusters reported last week, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin called out vulgarian comedian Bill Maher for referring to her Down Syndrome son Trig as “retarded.” On ABC’s The View Monday, co-host Barbara Walters astonishingly defended Maher saying, “I don’t think he intended it to be mean-spirited” (video follows with transcript and commentary): WHOOPI GOLDBERG: At a recent standup show in Las Vegas, comedian Bill Maher apparently called Sarah Palin’s five-year-old developmentally-challenged son Trig retarded.

    Of the many milestones in Barbara Walters’s career — her ascendance from NBC booker to on-camera powerhouse at the Today show, her soft-focus but hard-hitting 20/20 interviews on ABC, her creation of The View — perhaps the most notable is that she’s retiring of her own volition next year. But the funny thing is that, if she were interested in extending her career by a few years or decades, her sensibility would translate perfectly online. Only Diane Sawyer, sixteen years her junior, has had comparable staying power. Most of the prominent broadcast-news women of recent decades — Katie Couric, Elizabeth...

    UPDATE: Barbara Walters was totally ambushed by ABC today, my sources say. And the reality is, if she were even contemplating retirement of some kind, either Liz Smith or Cindy Adams would have reported it first. Now every media outlet has picked up this crazy story, and it’s quickly becoming “fact.” Stay turned to see if Walters rebuts. Interesting timing too since “The View” is not live tomorrow, but taped for Good Friday. ABC really played it well.

    Barbara Walters has been in the hospital for more than a week after she fell and hit her head during pre-Inauguration festivities in Washington, D.C. — and now the View co-host has contracted the chickenpox. While doctors were monitoring Walters after her fall, they noticed her fever was not subsiding and eventually determined that it was due to chickenpox, according to The Associated Press.

    (edit)   In e-mails leaked by a group waging civil war against Assad to London’s Telegraph, Jaafari assures the boss — whom she calls “The Dude” — that pulling the wool over Western eyes is a piece of cake. The “American psyche can be easily manipulated,” she wrote. Maybe Walters knew she’d climbed into bed with a killing machine. Babs proceeded to ask Assad, gingerly, about violence in his country. It made the tender soul say he felt “humiliated.” He fired Jaafari, and she moved to New York. Weeks later, she had an intimate lunch with an eternally grateful...

    Barbara Walters is telling it like it is when it comes to Kim Kardashian and the rest of her family. "You don't really act; you don't sing; you don't dance," Walters bluntly told the reality star during an interview taped for “Barbara Walters’ 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011,” as reported by RadarOnline.com. "You don't have any -- forgive me -- any talent!" Kim, flanked by mom Kris and sisters Khloe and Kourtney, defended her peculiar sort of fame, “I think it’s more of a challenge to go on a reality show and get people to fall in love with...

    As revelations about a possible scandal plaguing Rep. Anthony Weiner continue surface, the Democratic New York congressman continues to have defenders: On Monday’s broadcast of “The View,” co-host Barbara Walters went to bat for Weiner and proposed that the picture in question was intended for his wife and not for whom it was sent. “First of all, I have my own theory about why he took that picture, if indeed he did take that picture,” Walters said. “This is my theory – this doesn’t mean that it is right. He is married to this beautiful woman, whom I know, who...

    When ABC's Barbara Walters deems Sarah Palin one of the year's "Most Fascinating People," it's a backhanded compliment. Walters knows Palin has an adoring fan base, and she's definitely not part of it. When the Dec. 2 special began, Walters greeted Palin with "Many people find the thought of you as president a little scary." This is not what Walters asked President Obama in yet another gooey Barack-and-Michelle hour-long ABC interview on Thanksgiving night. Clearly, a large, energized chunk of the American electorate believed -- and continues to believe -- the idea of Obama as president to be horrifying. Instead,...
  • Barbara Walters on Boehner’s tears: I think he might have an emotional problem

    Via Greg Hengler, behold as the master of the weepy celebrity confessional interview, who’s been turning emotional problems into “news” for decades, suddenly discovers how off-putting tears can be. She’s right that there’s a different standard for crying when women politicians do it, but I’m not so sure that that difference benefits men. If Pelosi cried, she’d risk being branded as “soft” but she’d still be well within the bounds of acceptable female emotional display. Hillary’s tears just before the 2008 New Hampshire primary were a media sensation, but she suffered no real damage from it; on the contrary, some...

    CNN's outgoing 9 PM host Larry King announced his lineup of guests this week, and it is a veritable who's who of people in entertainment, politics and news. Among the guests is ABC's Barbara Walters, who will be appearing Tuesday in what CNN is billing as her "final interview" for "Larry King Live." Tonight, King will welcome former President Jimmy Carter, who has been making the rounds this week. Wednesday, Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who will be in New York for the annual UN confab, will sit down with King. Thursday, comedian Jerry Seinfeld will have his "final interview" with...

    Twenty-nine years, 93 interviews, one regret. That's Barbara Walters' personal scorecard when it comes to ranking her internationally famous Oscar-night interviews that come to a close Sunday evening in a program featuring Mo'Nique and Sandra Bullock. For nearly three decades, the interviews made up one of the most sought-after, eagerly watched, highest-rated programs on television, but now, Walters has decided to stop doing them. It's not a retirement, because she admits that she's going to continue delving into the private lives of the world's big names, but the showbiz-specific package she puts together at Oscar time each year will be...
