Barbara Walters on Samantha Brick: “She’s Not that Beautiful”

Written by , Posted in General

There isn’t much to say about the Samantha Brick story other than she is a very annoying woman who wrote a very annoying article for The Daily Mail about all the attention she gets for being beautiful. Backlash ensued, and then the ladies of The View chimed in. Now comes the good part. After telling the producer to put Brick’s picture back up on the monitor, Walters cut Brick with just one simple sentence, saying, “She’s not that beautiful.” And my other favorite part of this story came from a random commenter on another blog who said, “This is just proof that an American 10 is a British 5.” Click here to watch Walters in action.

Star Jones Returns to ‘The View’ — Still Evasive

Written by , Posted in General

If you own your truth, no one can touch you. And Star Jones still hasn’t owned her truth. She returned to The View to squash the bad blood, yet she objected to Barbara Walters’ rehashing of her departure. I’m not sure how Star Jones thought she’d get away with dodging Queen Walters, but she certainly tried. “Are you seriously going to go there?” She asked. “Does anyone care?” Walters wouldn’t relent. “You may not care,” she said. “But you’re used to hot topics.” Jones gave a bunch of canned answers that fooled me into thinking she was running for office. Walters then asked Jones about her decision to hide her gastric bypass surgery. Jones still dodged the answer.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Discusses Republican Debate — Loses Her Mind

Written by , Posted in General

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. If you can’t discuss a topic on a topic-driven show without your head exploding, then it’s time for you to get another job. To put it simply, Elisabeth Hasselbeck is unprofessional. Perhaps she should look across the table to Barbara Walters who managed to interview some of the most heinous individuals in history without so much as blinking strangely. Grow up, Hasselbeck.

Barbara Walters Calls the Kardashians “Talentless” — Plays Kim’s Sex Tape

Written by , Posted in General

Today is a new day, and it’s therefore time to mention again how much I love Barbara Walters. During her “Ten Most Fascinating People” special, Walters was fearless, telling the Kardashians they have no talent. She even played clips of Kim Kardashian’s sex tape. I have to hand it to the Kardashians, though. Not everyone can extend their fifteen minutes into hundreds of millions of dollars. Watch below.

Jon Stewart’s Balls of the Week – Barbara Walters’ “Spit-Take”

Written by , Posted in General

Jon Stewart’s hit it out of the park with his segment, “Holy Shit, You Got Some Huge, Hairy Motherfu*king Balls on You.” My favorite subject of the segment was Barbara Walters’ interview with Herman Cain, when Cain told Walters that he’d like a Cabinet position in the Department of Defense, and Walters replied with, “What!” Stewart quickly pointed out that Walters didn’t even react that way while interviewing the Syrian dictator, Bashar al-Assad. Watch below.

Barbara Walters on Letterman: “You Cannot Trust the Kardashians”

Written by , Posted in General

It’s no secret that I love Barbara Walters, but her Kardashian tirade on David Letterman while promoting her 10 Most Fascinating People special made my Barbara-Walters-love-bubble nearly explode. Walters’ anger resulted from her well-known standard that the participants in her interviews refrain from making big announcements prior to the air-date, because the interviews are filmed well in advance and any big life-changes will make Walters look as if she forgot to ask the relevant questions. There’s simply no excuse for Kourtney Kardashian’s pregnancy announcement prior to the interview being aired. It’s just rude. How dare these Kardashians disrespect Queen Walters.

Barbara Walters Talks to Syria’s Bashar al-Assad for ABC — Great Interview

Written by , Posted in General

Barbara Walters is the best interviewer in history. Her questions are short, poignant, and cutting. Her interview with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is no exception. He clearly respects her, yet he makes no apology for his country’s brutality. In fact, he denies that he authorized it, and he denies whether it happened at all, despite a plethora of evidence otherwise. Watch below.

Barbara Walters Discusses the ’10 Most Fascinating People’ — ‘The View’ Ladies Disagree

Written by , Posted in General

If you read The Dishmaster regularly, then you know my two biggest idols are Howard Stern and Barbara Walters. In the clip below, you’ll understand my love for Walters, who unveiled her ’10 Most Fascinating People’ on ‘The View’, which resulted in a backlash from her fellow co-hosts. My favorite line of the clip comes from Walters, when she says, “Why do I do this show, I could have a happy life on ABC News.” Watch below.

Barbara Walters Questions Justin Bieber’s Virginity

Written by , Posted in General

How dare the ladies of ‘The View’ insult Barbara Walters’ question-asking. She’s a genius — so when she asked whether Justin Bieber is a virgin, I thought: “That’s Brilliant!!! I want to know too! Why didn’t I think of that?!” Too bad she was shot down by her co-hosts. Watch below.
