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. READ MORE

It’s a good time to be Katie Logan. The Bold and the Beautiful’s resident martyr has exchanged tear-stained tissues for the executive suite. She’s fighting her feelings for her sister’s true love and running her ex’s company.
Her portrayer, Heather Tom, loves the changes in Katie’s character. After taping an appearance on The Talk, she shared her thoughts on Katie’s love life, B&B’s steamy new storyline and her real and fictional siblings.
The idea of Katie falling for Ridge seemed as unfathomable as Ryan Gosling dating a Kardashian, until Thorsten Kaye assumed the role. “[Ridge]has this whole history but [Kaye] is so different from Ronn and I think that it's allowing him to be almost a new character and allowing for these other things to happen," said Tom. "It would never have worked with Ronn in a thousand years. I love Ronn, but I think that ship had sailed. He was with [Brooke] and that was just it.”
Tom likes working with her new costar. “I love working with him and I think that he’s present in the scenes and he throws the ball back and it’s fun. I think we have a very nice rapport, a very good chemistry and there’s lots of fun stuff coming up.” READ MORE
