What’s Barbara Walters Up To?

Well, we’re glad you asked.

Showing she’s got range wider than Ted Turner‘s Montana ranchlands, ABC’s Barbara Walters interviewed transgender beauty contestant Jenna Talackova today. Walters, who interviewed Syrian leader Bashar Al-Assad in December about how his country was falling apart, talks with the 2012 Miss Universe Canada contestant about how she was disqualified from the pageant after revealing she was born a boy and had sexual reassignment surgery at age 19.

The interview airs tomorrow night on “20/20.” On Monday, Talackova will go on the Katie Couric-less “Good Morning America” and the Walters-full “The View.”
