Barbara Walters (born Barbara Jill Walters on September25, 1929 in Boston, Massachusetts) is an American broadcast journalist, author, and television personality.

They have one daughter together, Jacqueline Dena Guber, born in 1968 and adopted the same year. Barbara then married Merv Adelson, the CEO of Lorimar Television, in 1981 and divorced in 1984.

Even though her production duties made her a significant contributor to the program, she had no input in choosing a successor for Downs when he left in 1971, and Frank Mc Gee was hired.

In 1974, at the time of Mc Gee's death, Walters acquired the co-host position on the program, the first woman to hold such a title on an American news program.

In 1986, she was married for a third time to producer Merv Adelson. [From The National Enquirer, print edition, May 19, 2008] Maybe we can assume Walters had it the hardest for Brooke, since that’s who she’s talking about after all this time.

The lady is 78 years old, though, and she gave marriage a try a few times. And it sounds like her last secret affair was with Brooke, and that was over 30 years ago.

Walters first became known as a television personality in the early 1960s, when she was a writer and segment producer of "women's interest stories" on the NBC News morning program The Today Show, where she began work with host Hugh Downs.

As a result of her outstanding interviewing ability and her popularity with viewers, she received more airtime on the program.

Walters promoted the book by confessing to Oprah of an affair 30 years ago with married US senator Edward Brooke.
