Maybe Barbara Walters should have stuck with that old adage about never mentioning a woman's age or weight. After Barbara revealed in her new autobiography, Audition, that she'd an affair with a married senator in the 1970s and that Star Jones wanted the ladies of The View to keep quiet about her gastric-bypass surgery, the soon-to-be-divorced Star struck back, saying, "It is a sad day when an icon like Barbara Walters, in the sunset of her life, is reduced to publicly branding herself as an adulterer, humiliating an innocent family with accounts of her illicit affair and speaking negatively against me all for the sake of selling a book. It speaks to her true character." Barbara's rep responded, "I will not dignify this with a comment. Barbara's written words say it all."
