“This is 20/20, and I am Barbara Walters.”
Barbara Walters is, of course, one of the best-known broadcast journalists EVAH. She was the first woman to ever co-anchor an evening network news program, she has been nominated for 27 Emmys, has won an additional 5 Emmys, and has such powerful pussy magic that men literally fist fight over her.
Barbara has interviewed just about every “important” public figure of the last 4 decades: presidents, world leaders, Oscar nominees, dictators, Michael Jackson. Her scoop interviews and “personality journalism” are her trademark. She’s not afraid to ask the hard questions – or the shitty questions – or the silly questions – or the abstract questions. While she doesn’t always play fair, Barbara has worked her ass off while deflecting an endless parade of douchery from her male colleagues. Her decades-long rise to sit comfortably at the top of her industry is undoubtedly well-deserved.

For episode 20, I decided to be snazzy and go with the year 2000 theme. With so many badass babes being produced from Y2K … who the hell would I choose? So I thought to myself, what does 2000 mean to me? Well, I was 11 years old and in 6th grade as the clock struck midnight on December 31, 1999. I was anxiously waiting for the world to end as I sat on my purple inflatable couch weeping as my cassette player sounded off the music and lyrics to the only song that truly made sense in that moment…
“As we go on, we remember, all the times we, had together, and as our lives change, come whatever, we will still be, friends forever!”
By the power and grace of God, the world did not end and Vitamin C was born!
Vitamin C’s pop single “Graduation (Friends Forever)” was released in 2000 and hit the radio like a fucking wrecking ball. The single reached the top 10 in Australia, Canada, and Ireland as well as number 38 on the US Billboard Hot 100. To this day, it remains the number one song that leaves per-pubescent teens weeping as they graduate from Middle School and say goodbye to the same sack of shit kids they’ll be seeing three months later in Junior High.
Vitamin C’s musical career took a bit of a plunge in the mid-2000’s, so she utilized her talent and knowledge to help support young female artists in the music industry. She produced the girl group The Stunners and wrote several songs for Disney artists, such as Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez. Today, Vitamin C is living Melissa’s dream job as the VICE PRESIDENT OF MUSIC for Nickelodeon!
