In an interview, legendary television journalist Barbara Walters dropped the bombshell that she had a two-year affair with a married man—the first African-American elected to the U.S. Senate since Reconstruction. Barbara said she regretted that the affair ended up costing him his Senate seat, but she didn't regret the affair. "No, it was wonderful," Barbara said.

Oprah's panel has a lot to say about this!

"I just think it's kind of cool that she's into the brothers," Mark jokes. "Being a dark-skinned guy myself, I'm glad I didn't have an affair with her because then we'd be reading about it now!"

"I was just like you, Mark. I was surprised Barbara likes chocolate so much," Gayle says. "I was so glad to see it. I said, 'You go Barbara.'"

Ali jokes, "I was actually curious if there is actually 'the one' she would take to the grave that she's not telling? Is the senator, which is provocative in itself, a great story...and she's keeping the affair with Castro a secret?"
