Today is the end of an era as Barbara Walters says goodbye to her hosting chair on “The View,” and given her strong reputation in the journalism world, it’s no surprise that a few very important guests stopped by the ABC set to send her off.
During the special episode on Friday (May 16), former First Lady Hillary Clinton surprised Walters and greeted her with a big hug. "I can't believe this day has come," the politician said. "The [Most] Fascinating [People] list has been, you know, a particular interest of mine," she added with a smile. Hilary topped the list in 2013.
For 17 years “The View” has been a constant source of inspiration and insightful discourse, and in honor of Barbara Walters' retirement ABC will bring back all 11 hosts.
According to ABC Entertainment’s Paul Lee, Meredith Vieira, Joy Behar, Star Jones, Sherri Shepherd, Jenny McCarthy, Whoopi Goldberg, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Rosie O’Donnell, Lisa Ling and Debbie Matenopoulos will all return for a grand finale on Thursday, May 15th.
