Illuminati Isn't the Only Secret Society Barbara Walters Is Rumored to Belong To


You won't find much definitive information about the famous secret society known as The Illuminati online, but in case you caught Amazon Prime's Lorena documentary, you might have a couple of questions about the organization — and what Barbara Walters, 89, has to do with it — on your mind.

I'm talking about the moment Lorena Bobbitt's publicist, Alan Hauge, didn't let Barbara Walters interview his client. According to the documentary, Barbara and her ABC crew waited for hours outside of the mental facility where Lorena was being held once she was found not guilty of malicious wounding, due to an "irresistible impulse" insanity defense.
