Her father, Lou Walters, was a Broadway producer and director of an entertainment resort in Las Vegas. Her mother, Dena Walters owned and ran several nightclubs with her father.

Though Barbara Walters was born to wealth, it did not remain in the family for her to inherit. By her early twenties her brother passed away, and she also had a sister born with mental illness who also eventually developed ovarian cancer. The stress in the family took a toll on both of her parents and they eventually lost the entire fortune. By this time, Barbara was already starting to make a career for herself, but did not yet have the wealth that she has today to help her parents. The talk shows that she is most famous for includes 20/20, ABC News, Today, and most recently The View.
