Barbara Walters is fun

Barbara Walters went on Oprah yesterday to promote her tell-all book, Audition: A Memoir. She discussed a variety of topics ranging from Star Jones being fat then being skinny, Rosie O’Donnell being temperamental and her affair with Edward Brooke, the first black senator to be popularly elected.

Regarding Star Jones, Barbara said everyone knew she had gastric bypass surgery, but Star made them lie on air saying it was portion control and Pilates that led to her dramatic weight loss. Which is completely retarded since everyone knew Star could barely bend over to touch her knees much less do Pilates. In fact, Barbara said Star was so fat she could barely walk on set. Other fun facts revealed by Barbara include: Rosie O’Donnell having severe emotional problems and never considering herself Sen. Edward Brooke’s mistress even though she was. However, Barbara didn’t talk about her childhood which was a total letdown because I’ve always wanted to know what it was like when dinosaurs ruled the Earth.

    Barbara Walter’s life was influenced greatly by her older sister and she’s written a beautiful memoir about her life. I read another memoir of a life influence by a sibling that I recommend highly – I actually liked it even more. The memoir is “”My Stroke of Insight”” by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor. Dr Taylor became a Harvard brain scientist to find the cause and cure for schizophrenia because her older brother was a sufferer. Then, crazy as life can be, Dr. Taylor had a stroke at age 37. What was amazing was that her left brain was shut down by the stroke – where language and thinking occur – but her right brain was fully functioning. She experienced bliss and nirvana and the way she writes about it (or talks about it in her now famous TED talk) is incredible.

    What I took away from Dr. Taylor’s book above all, and why I recommend it so highly, is that you don’t have to have a stroke or take drugs to find the deep inner peace that she talks about. Her book explains how. “”I want what she’s having””, and thanks to this wonderful book, I can!
