So, Gossip Pearls was checking out the names on Barbara Walters' Most Fascinating List and we were shocked.
With Wall Street still in ruin, the world in chaos and political intrigue both in D.C. and around the world, our Babs; experienced journalist and interviewer of international and political superstars, comes up with the following names: Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lopez (are you freakin' kidding me?), Sandra Bullock, Lebron James, Kate Middleton, Sarah Palin (so tired of hearing that name, already), Betty White and the cast of Jersey Shore? Really? Walters thinks The Situation and crew are fascinating?
Gossip Pearls can't understand it, Jersey Shore kids are entertaining, and they have become famous for promoting the "dumb guido" culture that people seem to love, but are they fascinating? We don't think so.
We get that Sandra Bullock has been through a lot, but she has a lot of people around her to protect her, so she wasn't alone!
The fact that Bullock overcame a cheating husband with the help of her friends doesn't make her fascinating.
And would someone put Sarah Palin in a closet somewhere and throw away the key. Gossip Pearls is sick of hearing her name everyday. She is not intelligent, she is not empathetic or sympathetic; you can't call her a brilliant politician; she is just a television personality with a reality show!!!
People need to get a grip!!!
The only person Gossip Pearls can find remotely interesting in this bunch of names, is Kate Middleton and that's because she will someday become the Queen of England and that, we think, is pretty damned big!
Especially because the girl waited 8 years for the proposal--talk about patience.
Why Walters couldn't choose famous people who were doing something good for this country and the world is a mystery. Does Walters think this will keep her relevant?
ABC reveals nine people before the show airs, leaving the number one spot a mystery, but this year looks like they want to build suspense into the Dec. 9 airing by leaving out more than one name.
GOSSIP PEARLS DOES NOT CARE ANYMORE AND WILL NOT BE WATCHING!!!
