Barbara Walters’ Story, husbands and Daughter Jacqueline Dena Guber

Welcome to We feed the hunger for pop culture content, covering Entertainment and celebrity breaking News, Hollywood Rumors, gossip, fashion, sports, wags, celebs photos, videos, wikis and bios.


We couldn’t agree more with Ben Sherwood, president of ABC news as he said:

“There is only one Barbara Walters,” “We look forward to making her final year on television as remarkable, path-breaking and news-making as Barbara herself”

Yup, Barbara Walters, the first woman to co-anchor a U.S. evening news program, who created and hosted The View, anchored 20/20 for more than 20 years and many more achievements is saying goodbye. On Monday’s edition of The View, she will announce that she’s retiring from broadcasting in summer 2014.

Walter’s career sure is the envy of women in T.V but in this occasion we want to talk about her more personal life journey, her love life and her only daughter Jacqueline.

The glamour Walters has married and divorced three times. Her ex husbands are Robert Katz, Lee Guber and Merv Adelson. She’s also dated a lot of glamorous and interesting men, the list of which includes a former chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank-Alan Greenspan in the 70’s, and a United States Senator-John Warner in the 90’s. She is currently single but has her paramours with whom she takes sexy cruises on the Aegean!

But let’s go in order; first there was Robert Henry Katz, a business executive and former Navy lieutenant. They married on June 20, 1955, at The Plaza Hotel in New York City. The marriage was reportedly annulled in 1958.


In second place, we have Mr. Lee Guber, theatrical producer and theater owner. They married on December 8, 1963, and divorced in 1976. The couple adopted a baby girl, Walter’s only daughter Jacqueline Dena Guber.

She was also romantically linked to a gay lawyer Roy Cohn in college, and the lawyer said that he proposed marriage to Walters the night before her wedding to Lee Guber, but Walters denied this.Explaining her lifelong devotion to Cohn as gratitude for his help in her adoption of her daughter, Jacqueline.

Now,44 year-old Jacqueline Dena Guber was born on June 14,  1968, she was adopted the same year after the famous journalist had three miscarriages with hubby at the time Mr. Guber. Barbara named her daughter after her sister Jacqueline who was born mentally disabled and died of ovarian cancer in 1985.

Jackie Danforth as she is now known, was actually a troubled teenage who in her own words

“I was a runaway,”  “I loved to run. I thought running would solve all my problems.”

For an entire month Barbara didn’t know where she was or what to do about it! But that was a long time ago now, Jackie  has a self-discovery program for troubled girls. It combines outdoor living & clinical therapy. She attended the Marine biology program at the University of Maine and over the years has achieved several positions as the founder of the program New Horizons: director of operations, founder and executive director, executive director.

No doubt the life of 83 year old Barbara has had her ups and downs but not the Famous T.V personality can enjoy “the view” from a different side of the camera.

  1. um excuse me – but New Horizons, Jackie’s place for troubled teens, has been closed for a very.long.time…

    why do we need a year to say bye to BW? She nonstop glorifies herself and her accomplishments on a daily level and
    she also interrupts people on The View to do so….she should have retired when her best friend Beverly Sills (RIP Beverly)
    suggested that she, herself, wanted to bow out gracefully and graciously…but BW just ignored that subtle piece of advice and now
    BW is just losing it daily, cannot keep up, and gets really angry it seems if attention is paid to somebody else for more than 2 minutes.

    BARBARA – RETIRE NOW – go out with a little bit of class, eh? Now every single Friday is TRIBUTE TO BW…besides all the kudos she
    gives herself daily anyway….

    I respect her, she was a part of the Women’s Movement in the 1970s just by virtue of working on the news as an anchor with Harry Reasoner, but
    she has overstayed….and a lady always knows when to leave.

    Thanks for letting me post all that…. :)

    • Get over it.
      If only you could have accomplished an eighth of what she’s accomplished
      Quit being envious and bitter!!!

    • MadisonWalters says:

      Why do you say she overstayed? Just because a woman stays in a business she loves, and is passionate for over 50 years, she then has “overstayed?” The ONLY reason you say she has overstayed is because she asks questions you don’t like, or questions that you don’t want to hear. But damnit those are the questions that NEED to be asked! I love you Barbara! You’re my everything!

  2. Barbara! You shoulda married ME! I totes would have gone straight for you! I woulda given up buttsex! And I’d never leave you like stupid Lee Gruber! Well, I mean, now you’re a cool friend, but I love Annie Coulter now;) You had your chance;)

  3. Lorraine Shepherd says:

    I gave up a baby girl for adoption who was born june 6th 1968

  4. vanessa says:

    If you gave her up than no matter now! She paved the way for many. And if as a woman you decide to bash her, well than you’re an idiot.

  5. Kathleen A Dowen says:

    I love Barbara Walters! She has been a part ofy whole life ! There will always be a special place in my heart for her!

  6. jeanne legernes says:

    Barbara Walters is okay but has an elevated opinion of herself. She interrupts and talks over people. That is never nice. It’s time she retired. She was okay in her time but it is time for her to go. Retire, Barbara, go out while you’re still somewhat respected.
