Girl Reporter


Far be it from me ever to comment on a lady's age, but I have heard a rumor that Barbara Walters recently startled the studio audience at a taping of The View when she shared her memories of the first big story she nabbed, back when she was a just a cub reporter in Manhattan, struggling for an exclusive.  Yes, it's true: she was the girl who broke the shocking news that Stephen Haines was stepping out on Mary.

[Get well, Baba Wawa - TV wouldn't be the same without you.  Of course, only you could leaven the sad news of a fall - by having it take place at the British ambassador's residence!]

    Mary and Stephen Haines. Good reference. I remember "Jungle Red!" and "Cheap Chinese Embrodiery.

  2. Why, thank you, Caro! Stick around - The Women, along with Bollywood heartthrobs and a healthy dislike of Loretta Young, is kind of a recurring theme...

    2. It's probably a recurring theme for Mme. Walters as well.

    every time i see barbara.

    so polite, so top drawer.

  4. I never will forgive Meg Ryan and Annette Benning for ruining The Women.

    1. Oh, well - it had already survived The Opposite Sex, so I'm sure the wound is far from mortal.
