We've all been mentally planning for Barbara Walters to announce her retirement.
But when "The View" returned on Monday, the respected news personality did no such thing.
Whoopi Goldberg, who joked that Walters is the only thing she's heard about over the past two weeks, opened the hour-long daytime show by asking her co-host to set the record straight.
"The point is, nothing is going on," Walters said, going on to acknowledge that there were several reports last week concluding that she was retiring from ABC in 2014.
As CNN's Alan Duke reported, outlets such as Deadline.com suggested that the plan is for Walters to announce her retirement in May, which would allow ABC a year to pay tribute to her influential career before she steps down the following spring.
But on Monday, Walters reiterated that there hasn't been a comment on the reports, adding that there was an assumption she'd have big news as "The View" returned from a two-week hiatus.
"The paparazzi were outside of my home," the 83-year-old journalist said. "However, I have no announcement to make. But I do want to say that if and when I might have an announcement to make I will do it on this program, I promise. And the paparazzi guys, you will be the last to know."
yes, Sean Connery does all his own blogging. I'm sitting right here watching him do it. We're drinking martinis - shaken, not stirred.
Please take your hand off my knee, Roger..
silence, you cows of many colors
Meh – that is all
silly boys and girls
does not have sand in her cootch. probably not...
has been spotted in skimpy swimwear on numerous occasions. This increases the likelihood that there are deposits of granular material (finely ground rock, mineral particles, calcium carbonate) in and upon her labia majora.
Now if all 5 of these TV clowness'es would just resign and go home the show would be worth watching!!!
I miss Ms. Behar too bad she did not reconsider
Walters makes the program as do all the others. U go girl;) PeaceAll.
Hasselbeck is out....1 less too worry about
Overheard Conversations–YOU LOSE
1. both are single and can have x in the salon bathroom if the want
2. her family are leeches and suck her mentally dry
3. mind your business....
and never forget it.
the 2 i know are single and can baff whenever they like...she needs the boost and her family are controlling leeches who do not let the woman breath
mind your own business if your not aware of the entire story...
no dear....he was separated from his wife and not in the house...
Class? she was screwimg a married senator 35 yrs agn, walters is a filthy pig
Walden was living in another home and separated–he was able to bang barbara
I lost all respect for her when she joined this show.. not that I had any to begin with. At least Behar is gone, but the whole thing needs to be cancelled.
When has she ever been a journalist?
All of the view women need to retire. They all suck at their job.
Damn old hag let some 1 esle enjoy the spotlight....
A total combined IQ of 40..... Mostly because Behar and Goldberg come in negative.
I think I will go leave a giant steaming pile of poop for the paparazzi.
Wish Joy Blowhard was the one retiring.
I am happy Ms. Walters has no intentions of leaving. She is smart + classy! She has NEVER disappointed in all the years I've been following her! – @Marita.
