Barbara Walters Names Most Irrelevant, Err, Fascinating People

Among the compelling folks on Walters’ list this year are Tom Cruise, who starred in one of 2005’s biggest movies (“War of the Worlds”) and also spent weeks telling anyone who would listen about his newfound love for actress Katie Holmes and his Scientology beliefs. “Desperate Housewives” star Teri Hatcher is also on the list, as are Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Thomas Mesereau, the lawyer who defended Michael Jackson in his child-molestation trial.

Okay, Condoleezza Rice may not be irrelevant, but Teri Hatcher? What, no Kevin Federline?
