HomeTVABCBarbara Walters on The Talk: “If You’re Married to The President of The Network You Get More Promos” Jillian Bowe April 10, 2014 ABC, CBS, News, Talk Shows, The Talk, The View 23 Comments As she readies for retirement, is Barbara Walters worried about CBS Daytime's The Talk overtaking her ABC coffee klatch? Not a chance. In a candid exit interview with Variety, The View’s co-creator revealed: We are not at all affected by The Talk. I don’t think the success of her show diminishes us, nor do I think the success or failure of The View affects them. The only thing I’ll say is if you’re married to the president of the network, you get more promos. I guess Babs shouldn't expect an invite to Les and Julie's Easter egg hunt this year! 23 Responses soapjunkie88 April 10, 2014 So late in the game and Waters looks more and more tacky. Retirement can’t come soon enough I guess. Log in to Reply DonnyA2001 April 10, 2014 Ooooo, Babs is throwing SHADE! I love it! Log in to Reply pferrando April 10, 2014 The View has been crashing for a LONG time. Sad for her to leave on a bad note. Log in to Reply Smitty April 10, 2014 The shade hunny!!!!!!!!!!! lmao Babs is telling the truth though… Log in to Reply DaytimeFan0001 April 10, 2014 Low class. No class. Bye Bitch Log in to Reply Mets82 April 10, 2014 Dont know why she would say that. The View isnt exactly tanking in the ratings. I mean they have been on for, what, 17 yrs., not 17 mins. No need for that. Log in to Reply luverica April 10, 2014 Oooh, SHAAADE! Go on Babs! LOL!!! Look, she has a point. I’ve always said Julie Chen is one of the worst case of nepotism in the history of humanity. Two words – BIG BROTHER! Plus, for me she’s the weak link of The Talk. Log in to Reply ChrisGa April 10, 2014 Yeah, not a big Chenbot fan but not much class coming from a supposed “journalist” like Walters either; she’s been snarky and just plain tacky on more than one occasion in the last couple or so years regarding some of the shit she’s said. Frankly, it sounds like someone might need their Depends changed. Log in to Reply bobbyew April 10, 2014 Shady Boots. She hating cause mouse house pushing her old spills peoples tea ass out. Log in to Reply harlee490 April 11, 2014 Sweet Jesus, Babs she’s old and cranky and has she lost all her class or maybe Alzheimer’s setting in…HMMM? Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 April 11, 2014 Barbara is trash and can’t stand her ass, yes, Julie chen got the job because of nepotism, but at least they promote the soaps, unlike ABC, where GH, its only soap, is not even promoted or having its cast on the show, smdh. She been a bitch lately and glad her ass is gone. Log in to Reply liason4real April 11, 2014 LOL, maybe Barbara is tired of all of the copy cat shows with five anchors stealing The View’s thunder? Log in to Reply pferrando April 11, 2014 When a copy cat show does a better job than you are, it’s time to gracefully bow out. She unfortunately is not doing that gracefully. And it just hasn’t been this comment. Time for a complete revamp. Log in to Reply FoxyMegan April 11, 2014 Barbara is a BTOC. Very glad she’s retiring. Log in to Reply californiaguy888 April 11, 2014 You need to know when to get off the stage – and Baba Wawa should have left before The View. She was a highly respected TV personality and now she’s seen as the female Andy Rooney. Log in to Reply blake3b April 11, 2014 Barbara really was well respected and classy, but her last years on The View have changed all of that. She should have left it years ago. It was being selfish and not looking out for the show. Bring Rosie O’Donnell back to replace Barbara. The show will be interesting again, I would definitely watch! Log in to Reply n69n April 11, 2014 Yeah, and if you’re ROY COHN’s BEARD, you can BUILD A CAREER OUT OF IT… … Can’t you, Barbara? Log in to Reply n69n April 11, 2014 . Log in to Reply rabbit on the moon April 11, 2014 I despise Barbara Walters. But can’t say I disagree with her on this. Log in to Reply logan_echolls April 11, 2014 LMBO!! I was hoping someone would say Shady Boots. LOL I love that expression The View will continue to tank. Jenny McCarthy, that’s all. Sherri is dumb as a box of rocks and the fact she married her great Granddaddy shows she has no common sense. Whoopi can only do so much. While Jenny goes on and on about getting vaccinated causes autism. She won’t say that she was smoking while pregnant. And getting poison put in your face, botox, doesn’t help either. My friend has two kids who smoked while pregnant and guess what, both kids got autism. They don’t tell you not to smoke while pregnant for nothing. Log in to Reply TV Gord April 11, 2014 She made a joke. Some people need to remember their sense of humor. She laughed it off when Sharon Osbourne made her drunken comments about The View last year. I’m sure Julie and Les will laugh this off, too. Log in to Reply Ryan45212 April 12, 2014 Funny generations were born to smokers yet autism was hardly her of. Most kids in my era had parents who smoked and not one kid had autism. Its as likely to be caused by all the vaccines the kids get these days as well as anything else. Evidently they cant tell you what doesnt cause it but cant tell you what does? Seems to me the more the govt gets involved the more diseases etc come along.. ps i also dont think alot of these kids have autism they are just slow learners and catch up in time.. Otherwise explain why they had it and with therapy there cured. NO they were taught and caught up.. Log in to Reply TV Gord April 14, 2014 I’m on irony overload.
