87-year-old Barbara Walters is claiming ABC executives have ruined the show she started, THE VIEW! She claims that the show will be remembered for its REVOLVING DOOR of talent and bickering rather than important discussions.
A source says: “She feels they’ve ruined the franchise that she and Bill Geddie built. Instead of focusing on smart, educated women with strong talent, they cast uninformed child actors on the show. The legacy has been compromised because of poor casting and bad leadership under ABC News.”
Walters is apparently so “DONE” with the show that she even skipped out on a post-election appearance that reunited ‘the originals’: Debbie Matenopoulos, Meredith Vieira, Joy Behar and Star Jones. However Walters’ rep denis the claims, saying: “Barbara calls the control room multiple times a week to offer her suggestions. She has a wonderful relationship with the show.”
