Is Barbara Walters ready to retire?
The 79-year-old television legeng will reportedly be done with TV later this year.
In fact, she's telling friends already that once her ABC contract expires shortly, she'll be calling it quits. Apparently, Walters is "burned out" and ready to relax.
We don't blame her. She's 79!
An inside source said, "Barbara's thought long and hard over whether she wants to extend her contract when it expires with ABC this summer. It's left her with many sleepless nights. ABC sees her as one of its marquee female stars and would like to see her continue, but Barbara's decided she's 'done it all - many times over' and wants some time for herself."
We have to give her credit. We don't many people her age that are still working. Or alive!
The source adds, "Her career has spanned five decades. She told a pal, 'I don't want to be 80 and working the phones to land an interview with one of the nobodies
Miley Cyrus who pass for celebrities today.'
Wonder what she'll do with her free time now?
Hats off to Barbs!
