Barbara Walters has an interesting definition of "fascinating." In Walters' dictionary, it must be synonymous with "enraging," "polarizing" and "inescapable." Because Babs has just named the sisters Kardashian among her "Most Fascinating People" of 2011. The full list, via Just Jared: Simon Cowell (are we in 2003?), Derek Jeter (mehsville), Donald Trump (NOOOOOO), Pippa Middleton (makes sense), Katy Perry (fine, whatever) and 'Modern Family" duo Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson (cute).
The special airs Dec. 14 on ABC, and, per tradition, the least most fascinating human being on Earth will be revealed at the end. We'll be pretending not to watch.
