    I would have thought Princess Kate but since Pippa is on the list, probably not. Maybe Beyonce?

    I don’t understand why EVERY f’cking media outlet, including Barbara Walters, is kissing up to the Kardashians. What does that say about the society? The scum at the bottom of the barrel is being sold as gold these days.

I loathe the Krapdashians just as much as anyone else but sadly ppl keep watching their horrific shows and clicking on their links, look at their twitter followers!!!!!!!!! more than most legit celebs.

When you see a link with one of their ugly names in it, dont click!!! please if we stop, they will soon go away. (paris hilton anyone? lol)

    boring list of so-called “fascinating people” 12/14 I’ll watch the grass grow

    While not put quite so crudely as some, there is truly nothing fascinating about the Kardshians or really any of the people on this list. Pippa Middleton is fascinating? Why, because she has a sister who will be queen? Donald Trump is fascinating? why? Because he has the world’s worst combover and is self-aggrandizing? The Kardshian sisters are self-promoting, self-involved, and incredibly uninteresting and irrelevant young women who are three of the least fascinating people on the planet. There is so little here to be interesting in and even less reason to watch – Barbara, it is time to let it go.

    The kardshians are facinating people because they do not good and still get paid very well thanks to a stupid/dumb society

    Barbara Walters should just retire already..

    danielle Says:

    Yes, time for Barbara to retire. There are so many truly fascinating people out there and she chooses Trump, the Kardashians, Derek Jeter????

    I think they got it wrong in the Bible. I think “K” is the mark of the Beast instead of 666. I would not be surprised if they were each born with a big K on their big arses.

    Bing Says:

    Lady gaga will of course make number one

    martha Says:

    This list is really ludicrous.

    But by way of explanation, Baba Walla only includes people on her list who agree to cooperate for interviews. The K’s? Fame hos… all the way.

    I will not watch.

    Manny Says:

    Wow… how sad that the Kardashian PR wh*res are considered fascinating. Time to cart Babs off to the nut house!

    Ladyb Says:

    I have a feeling the No1 spot will be either Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie or Justin Beiber. But I so agree with Danielle (#13)

    Kartrashians? Are you kidding me? Baabaa so wants to be young again, but she just lost a ton of viewers by putting them on her list! I love Eric & Jesse!

    This is absolutely disgusting. When will they fad into oblivion like Paris?

    katie Says:

    While I’d like to think those dumb wh*res the Kardashians read what people say about them (I don’t really know anyone who has had anything nice say about them on the internet) and feel like the lowlife scum they are, I think they are really just laughing all the way to the bank and that is just infuriating.

    I think michelle bachman will take the no. 1 spot. Just because of her publicity she gets throughouut the year.

    I’m more facinated by scientists and engineers that can make the world a better place, not annoying b**ches that like to get pissed on.

    Well, it’s official: Barbara Walters has OFFICIALLY jumped the shark. I will never, ever watch any Barbara Walters product again.

    Gabe Says:

    Define “fascinating”. In this context I think it means “over-hyped”. I’m not surprised that KK&K are on the list. They either payed their way in or Babs has lost all credibility, both plausible theories – and the only thing fascinating about Donald Trump is his hair.

    Jasmine Says:

    Barbara Walters is a f***ing joke and has been for a while. Didn’t she include that Jersey Shore trash on her list last year? And the Kardashians are on it now? She has a retarded idea of what makes a person FASCINATING and deserving of attention…SHE just wants the high ratings. Get the geezer off TV.

    Annie Says:

    I count 10 people in the list above. So is it the 11 Most Fascinating People of 2011? None of those listed interest me whatsoever.

    Mo Says:

    Of course the number one has to be Kim kerdashian. who else imagine if she choose Khortney…

    Rocky Says:


    ME TOO!! He’s humble and a total team player. I’m a Cubs fan and can honestly say that Derek is THE MAN!

    I don’t like Barbara, never have. She needs to fly away far away and spend her money with Joan Rivers. I mean, look at those two. They’ve had so much work done on those faces in a few years they’ll have no eyes or noses to speak of. Barbara has LOST her mind!

    sewe Says:

    Pippa who? I’ve never understood or participated in the hoopla about that plain who cares girl……………..And Kim Kardashian did some bad things but she was NOT fascinating. Dam Barb!

    LisaLipps Says:

    Kim K is the most laughable person of 2011. Hands down.

    Riley Says:

    Re the Kardashians… A disgusting choice – this family is toxic….No Talent, No Manners, No education – Fame is nothing but a result of the dumbing down and brainwashing of what America finds entertaining and “fascinating” – Barbara. Go to The View page wall on Facebook and express how you feel. Walters has lost her mind, has bad advisers – and/or, most likely and as usual – this is all about ratings and money.

  46. 46
    Riley Says:

    @Irena: Agree….completely. The View page on Facebook is a good place to comment about this.

    noithatvanphong Says:

    I think that what you published was very logical. But, what about this? suppose you were to write a killer post title? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added something that grabbed people’s attention? You should look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create news titles to get viewers to open the links. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.
