Barbara Walters Topics
A good laugh makes any interview, or any conversation, so much better.
I was trying to do everything I possibly could,up until this morning, when I was betrayed, to protect her. We gave her time to look for another job and hoped she would...leave with dignity. But Star made another choice.
Motherhood is tough. If you just want a wonderful little creature to love, you can get a puppy.
In 2000, I pushed Ricky Martin very hard to admit if he was gay or not, and the way he refused to do it made everyone decide that he was. A lot of people say that destroyed his career, and when I think back on it now I feel it was an inappropriate question.

At a certain point I had to work. I had to support my whole family. My father was, I guess, what we would call an impresario. He produced great, glorious shows, kind of like Las Vegas shows, in at the time the most famous nightclub in America, called the Latin Quarter. Many comedians still know me as Lou A's daughter. But like many great impresarios, my father died broke, and I supported the family from the time I was about 22 or 23. I had to work. And I had a sister who was older than I, who was borderline retarded.
The most dominant person in my life was Jackie. I was embarrassed by her, and at the same time I loved her very much. I always knew I had to take care of Jackie...financially support her, but more than that. The sadness of her life gave me an understanding, and a compassion, and a pain in my heart.

Wait for those unguarded moments. Relax the mood and, like the child dropping off to sleep, the subject often reveals his truest self.
To not sing with an orchestra, to not be able to communicate through my voice, which I've done all my life, and not to be able to phrase lyrics and give people that kind of joy, I think I would be totally devastated.
To feel valued, to know, even if only once in a while, that you can do a job well is an absolutely marvelous feeling.
The world may be full of fourth-rate writers but it's also full of fourth-rate readers.
The sports page records people's accomplishments, the front page usually records nothing, but man's failures.
Show me someone who never gossips, and I will show you someone who is not interested in people.
One may walk over the highest mountain one step at a time.
No one could ad lib like Peter. You would think that it was all scripted, he was so poetic, but it wasn't.
Most of us have trouble juggling. The woman who says she doesn't is someone whom I admire but have never met.
