Mariah on "20/20" with Barbara Walters
I spent the early part of this week with two superstars and their children
for a special "20/20" Mother's Day salute, which will air on May 10.
First, I sat down with Diana Ross, still slim and glamorous, and her five
children - yes, five children: three grown daughters and two adorable
young sons. I'll tell you more about this later but for now, just know
that all of us ended up in happy tears.|
I next interviewed Whoopi Goldberg and her daughter, Alex. Whoopi gave
birth to Alex when she was 19. Alex gave birth to her first child at the
age of 15. What a story they both have to tell - but again, more of that
Here's another heads up. In addition to the Mother's Day program airing
10-11 p.m. Eastern Time on May 10, we will also be reprising the program I
so much loved doing, called "Born in My Heart". The program is about
parenting and adoption, and it features many of my colleagues - including
Connie Chung and Rosie O'Donnell - with their adopted children, and my
own daughter, Jackie. This will also be on May 10, preceding "20/20" at
9-10 p.m. Eastern Time. I will tell you more about both programs as we get
I have also been working on a 90-minute special that will air on
Wednesday, May 8 from 9:30-11 p.m. (I have been kind of busy.) This
program is called "Beyond the Glare", and I went back to some of my most
sensational interviewees to see how they are doing now. You will hear from
Mariah Carey, Sarah, Duchess of York, Donna Rice, Kato Kaelin, Greg
Louganis and Macauley Culkin. What a line-up! Each talks about their
worst time and gives advice on how to survive the glare - even when
nothing seems to be going right.
This week on "20/20", John Stossel kicks off a new series that we are
calling "The Family Fix", looking at problems and suggested solutions.
The first report in this six-week series deals with the stress children
put upon the relationships between parents, including sex. If you have
children, I can tell you that you'll find this story both interesting and
useful. And if you don't have children, it will give you new sympathy for
Brian Ross reports from Rome that, even as American cardinals and the
Vatican promise to crack down on alleged pedophilia, some Vatican
officials have failed to fully investigate a prominent church leader. His
report is startling. And John Miller has the intriguing tale of the sperm
that escaped prison. It's a jaw-dropping, true-life story involving a
mobster behind bars, his pregnant wife, and how she got that way.
So do watch: Friday at 10 p.m. Eastern Time. And let me know what you
think of the program, and your reactions to this e-mail. You can reach me
Many thanks to Bill Murray.

Oh, I understood "out of comfort zone" something like Mariah doing things she hasn't previously done or trying out something new with some pop. I think she did great in her latest album including a song like Meteorite with the house vibe, it goes nicely with her voice. I would like Mariah to do a bit more of jazz or even blues. I see her singing a ... read more

You're so right about MTV. I mean whatever happened to what was once considered the (all caps) avenue for any musical artist's exposure? There was a time you'd be able to tell who's hot based on how often their videos were played in a day. I remember being able to watch it all day as a kid (instead of cartoon channels). And yes, once 2000 hit, it g... read more

Sometimes, the best moments are the ones you'd never see unless you were there.
