NEW YORK (AP) After three decades of keeping mum, Barbara Walters now says she had a past affair with married U.S. Senator Edward Brooke, whom she remembers as "exciting" and "brilliant."

Appearing on "The 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.

I'm surprised they didn't save it for the May sweeps.
(for those who don't know the sweeps are done 4 times a year - Feb, May, July, and Nov)

if hes eating john daly's sloppy seconds, i dont think anything is beneath him. i think he believed in mark grace's practice (which must be popular amongst baseballers) to go slumming for a "slumpbuster".

Barbara in his rookie season, might be an upgrade from what hes used to.

Can someone explain to me the difference between, "Announcing you've had affair with a married woman" and "announcing that you are a profanityfilterprofanityfilterprofanityfilterprofa nityfilterprofanityfilter?"

Usually these "announcements" are reserved for Springer. Hey Barb, I guess what they say is true, "all the money in the worlkd can't change a person from who they really are...," in your case, a tramp.

When's the freaking book? *rolls eyes*

While everyone makes mistakes, not everyone takes to public television to spew forth. It's saved for reconciliation between person and God - I would tend to believe that Ms. Walters wanted to steal some more of the spotlight....book and/or movie in 10, 9, 8, 7...
