Mary Kay Letourneau Fualaau and husband Vili Fualaau are sitting down with Barbara Walters on Friday to talk about their life and almost a decade of marriage.
Letourneau was 34 and working as a schoolteacher in 1996 when she began an affair with Fualaau, who was her student and only 13 at the time. She eventually served seven-and-a-half years in prison for the sexual relationship, but less than a year after being released in 2005, she and Fualaau married.

It has been 21 years since Barbara Walters hosted her first 10 Most Fascinating People special – and now she's adding 10 more people to her list of honorees.
"It's crazy. I'm so fortunate to have been doing this for so many years," Walters tells PEOPLE of hosting the annual special at the age of 85. "I would've had to have been out of my mind to think that would happen."
Her past lists have been filled with names ranging from celebrities (like Tom Hanks and Barbra Streisand) to politicians (like Madeleine Albright and Hillary Rodham Clinton) to those changing the world (like Mother Teresa and Steve Jobs).

Barbara Walters said goodbye to The View, the woman-powered talk show she created for ABC in 1997, Friday morning.
"I may be available for supermarket openings and charity auctions," she joked at the hour's close before going on to mention her interviews of the powerful and famous on her specials and then on to her many years as the unmistakeable head of the table on The View, on which she'll remain executive producer.
This had been billed, somewhat delicately, as Walters's farewell to daytime television, but her summing up sounded very much like a pronounced "I'm outta here!"
