If you’ve been fascinated by the “Jersey Shore” cast’s ability to lay around in bed for hours at a time, throw around the word "done" without actually meaning it and somehow still find time for regular GTL sessions, you’re not the only one. Barbara Walters is pretty fascinated with the reality TV stars as well, and has included the cast among her "10 Most Fascinating People of 2010" special.
Walters will also sit down with teen pop idol Justin Bieber; former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin; Sandra Bullock; LeBron James; new “Idol” judge Jennifer Lopez; and the recently engaged Kate Middleton.
And of course, it wouldn’t be a 2010 list if it didn’t include 88-year-old Betty White, whose star has arguably shone the brightest this year. But Walters won’t focus on just White’s success – she’ll also delve into her sex life. When Walters inquires if one still has sex at White’s age, the comedienne responds, “If one gets lucky!”
That sentiment is probably comforting to the “Jersey Shore” crew, who are no strangers to “smooshing,” as the cast members call it.
“I need a lesson. Okay, because you have your own language,” Walters tells them during the special. But when they started talking dollars and cents, an interesting tidbit came out: Apparently, Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi are looking to buy a house together with their reality show dough after Snooks pays off her mom’s mortgage. But they’re not looking in New Jersey; nope, according to ABC, the duo’s on the lookout in Long Island, New York.
To find out who took the No. 1 spot on Walters' list, you'll have to tune in to "Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2010" on Thursday, December 9 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
