Barbara Walters has announced nine of her “Ten Most Fascinating People” for 2010, and the names on it, with a couple of exceptions, are enough to make you wonder if Walters has succumbed to a sudden bout of dementia.
Kate Middleton made the list, simply for saying yes to a wedding proposal after eight years of stalling. Â Yes, fascinating. Â Sarah Palin made the list, too, but perhaps it could be argued that she’s fascinating in the same way that a train wreck is. Â Jennifer Lopez is also included – seriously? Â And of course, there’s Bieber and the cast of Jersey Shore, just to round out the Â bewildering choices. Â The only person on the list remotely interesting is Betty White, and I might tune in to the Barbara Walters special just to see what White has to say.
