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 to come.
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 closer.
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 your parents!
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 at BarbaraWalters@abnews.com.

Sincerely,

Barbara Walters

I often thought Mariah did the polar opposite (46,912) by Michele from USA

There are so many extreme opposites between Mariah's two marriages. Besides the age difference, there's also the length of engagement. I think Mariah and Tommy were engaged for almost two years, while Mariah and Nick were only engaged for what, five days? Mariah and Tommy's wedding was this huge production with so many guests and something like 26 ... read more

The Rock (46,911) by Michele from USA

Here's a little fun trivia for your Tuesday. The Rock is a local celebrity in my hometown of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. He graduated from one of our high schools, Freedom High School, which is only about 13 km from my house. He's pretty much the #1 celebrity in this area, along with Mario Andretti (for any of you who follow race car driving). And now... read more
