What I found most interesting about the article was how willing she was to lie to the world about the state of her marriage to Brand. She says that shortly before the divorce announcement she gave an interview to Barbara Walters and told her wonderful everything was at home and how happy the marriage was while knowing that it was going to end up in divorce in very short order. If Barbara knew how to ask a followup question or be tougher she might have got Katy to break down and come clean but Barbara never varied from the questions she was prepared to ask and had approved beforehand because Barbara would never try and upset a celebrity on camera because that would be bad for business.
Katy was hours late to the interview and Barbara never asked about it and never pressed her on it and just let Katy slide right on by. The reason Katy was late was because her marriage was falling apart.
