Barbara Walters is worried about retiring. She is a well known broadcast journalist, author, and television personality. She has hosted shows such as Today and The View and this is how she is feeling. She Co hosted the final show of The View, today, May 16, 2014 is taking a well deserved break this summer however new T.v, are on her mind already.
The 84-year-old star told UsMagazine.com:
”Monday comes, and I’m going to sleep late! A little later on I’m going to go to Europe for a few days with a friend because I don’t want to sit home and think about, ‘What do I do today? Why aren’t I on the air?’ So I’m going to go away for a bit. And then it’s the summer!”
She is keen on slowing down, and she is in hopes of interviewing more high profile people in the future.
”I would love to do an interview with the Pope. I do my homework, so I have a certain sense of authority. Sometimes I know more about the person than they do themselves. I’m very rarely nervous. When I finish an interview, I do ‘shoulda, coulda, woulda,’ and it drives me crazy, but when I’m actually doing the interview, I’m fine in authority and that’s a good feeling.”
She had been surprised today, when so many of her close friends which includes Oprah Winfrey and Hillary Clinton, showed up to surprise her on her final episode of the show.
”I didn’t expect what was happening today and when I looked up and there were all of these women, most of whom I recognized who are in this business. They all took time out of their day and all had to line up backstage. I can’t imagine a better tribute than that.”
