Barbara Walters finds Michael Jackson's children fascinating
Barbara Walters has, according to Gossip Cop, tapped Michael Jackson's children to be among "The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2009" in her annual special. She, however, won't be interviewing Prince Michael, Paris and Prince Michael II (that's Blanket) for TV.
Among the other names in the running for this year's uber-fascinator? The roster is shaping up to include Adam Lambert, Sarah Palin, Lady Gaga, Brett Favre, Tyler Perry, Kate Gosselin, Glenn Beck and Jenny Sanford -- the wife of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford.
The adult names above get us to eight on the list, unless the Appalachian-trail hiker himself is coming along for the ride, which would push it to nine.
So, how many kids does it take to make one whole fascinating person?
Guess we'll wait till Dec. 9 to find out.
