Great interview with Liz Smith for The Hollywood Reporter about her long, long life, career and love affair with NYC. Of note: An ugly story about Lee Radziwill, her affection for her Republican overlords, being outed past retirement age and much more.

I spent NYC's Gay Pride March on a float shared by The Adonis Lounge (strippers, some hookers) and AidforAIDS.org (which urges everyone to get tested for HIV). I'll have tons of sexy pictures of the guys and tons more of the general parade, but what follows is a, uh, humorous Q&A with the go-go boys on made-up world events...

Anti-gay Texas TV host is probably the daughter of a scam artist. Perfect.
You can feel Barbara Walters's frustration at having to interview someone as bone-rattlingly stupid as V. Stiviano. Yes, she's crazy like a fox in that she is getting big bucks from Donald Sterling for what appears to be very little work (where can I apply to be someone's “silly rabbit”?), but she's still in La-La Land, expecting anyone on earth to believe she isn't a side piece of some sort. She actually sort of laughs when saying it's a misconception that she's a whore. Laughs.

Barbara Walters has announced that she will retire from TV journalism in the summer of 2014:
"I do not want to appear on another program or climb another mountain. I want instead to sit on a sunny field and admire the very gifted women—and OK, some men too—who will be taking my place."
Wow. I really like and respect Barbara Walters. I realized the last time I posted about her that there is a lot of resentment and dislike of her, but I don't get it. I think she's a legend, and rightfully so.
Barbara Walters will retire in one year's time. In my opinion, it's the end of an era and a great loss. Barbara Walters is one of those people who spans most of the history of television. She's been amazingly resilient, has made a name for herself doing multiple things from morning shows to the nightly news to nightime investigative journalism to, of course, her inimitable interviews.
When I saw her one time and mentioned how much I enjoyed The View (I did, at the time), she coolly ignored me. But she's not a friend, she's a living legend.
And for the record, when it comes to what kind of tree I'd be, I will be a weeping willow when she leaves.
