Now this out to be interesting!  Can these ladies all get along to properly say farewell to the legendary Barbara Walters? We shall see, but here is the plan.  According to The Wrap, during Walters final week on The View, circle the May 15th episode. That is when the long-running ABC morning talk show brings back all of Walters former co-hosts and mixes them in with the present ones … 11 in total!

Returning for the episode will be: Meredith Vieira, Star Jones, Joy Behar, Debbie Matenopoulos, Lisa Ling, Rosie O’Donnell  and Elisabeth Hasselbeck who will be hand along with present co-hosts; Sherri Shepherd, Jenny McCarthy, Whoopi Goldberg and Barbara herself.

The following day, after more than five decades on the air, Walters will say farewell to daily television with her final co-host appearance on The View that morning on Friday May 16th.  As previously announced, The View will commemorate Walters’ final week (May 12-16) with “ABC: A Barbara Celebration” featuring surprise guests, dedicated segments, and retrospectives of Walters’ life.

So just for old times sake, will you be tuning in to see all the ladies from The View in one show?   Let us know!

    Since BW makes every show all about her, I don’t see this being all that different.

    These goodbye shows are sort of like funerals and weddings– most of “family” even if they hate each guts will try to get along for the event. I have no doubt these ladies will put any ill will aside to wish good will to Ms. Walters on her retirement. I will try to watch, but might need some aspirin ready in case I get a headache trying to listen to eleven women talk over each at once.

    How will anyone get a word in edgewise? Those yentas talk all over each other as it is. Poor Jason Thompson barely said a word when he was guest co-host a while back.

    Well personally, She deserves it…she has had a remarkable career…sadly at her age, she is has a lot more to look back on as opposed to ahead…allow her to “have her day” …make her feel special and still relevant… Enjoy your moment Barb…and thanks for showing us IT CAN be done!

    I wish Sherri Shepherd would retire from the show! She makes it difficult to watch now!
