Walters Mum on Separation: Television interviewer Barbara Walters, rarely at a loss for words, has taken a non-speaking role in the trial separation from her husband, Los Angeles businessman Mervyn Adelson, former chair of Lorimar Telepictures. Maurie Perl, a spokesman for Walters at ABC-TV, announced the separation and said Walters would have no comment to make on it. "They've been married since May, 1986, and have decided to separate on a trial basis," Perl said. "They have no plans beyond that."
