"I believed every word I read in Page Six, I did. And there were contradicting sides and I believed all of it was true 'cause there's a little bit of truth to everything. Someone said she calls the control room and we take her notes seriously. And I was like, 'She calls the control room [and] I don't know if you take her notes that seriously. You probably make her feel like you're taking it that seriously, but she doesn't feel that way.' And I do think that Barbara Walters is probably like, 'This amazing show I created is now just kind of withering away with a revolving door of hosts that people can't keep straight.' I mean, I should know all the names of the hosts and I don't 'cause it changes so often."  

Chen is definitely in a position to take a few pot shots at The View. When The Talk premiered in 2010, Walters and Co. dismissed the CBS Daytime show as a lightweight copycat of her Mouse House chat fest. In recent seasons, however, The Talk has managed to eclipse The View in terms of popularity and stability.
