'The View' to Reunite Past and Present Co-Hosts for Barbara Walters
There will be a big reunion on "The View". The talk show is bringing back the ladies, all past and present, to the Thursday, May 15 episode which is part of a week-long farewell to Barbara Walters.
Meredith Vieira, Star Jones, Joy Behar, Debbie Matenopoulos, Lisa Ling, Rosie O'Donnell and Elisabeth Hasslebeck will join current co-hosts Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd for the live show. This is the first time ever all 11 women will share the same stage.
The reunion episode will take place a day before Walters officially signed off from the show. "Barbara Walters' status as a trailblazer, a legend and an icon are undeniable," Paul Lee, president of ABC Entertainment, said in a statement.
"By creating a talk show panel with multiple hosts she changed the daytime landscape with a concept that is now widely emulated. It's a true testament to her legacy. We are grateful to her and recognize her enormous contribution to ABC Entertainment and the indelible mark she has left on television," he continued.
