Goodbye, BahBwa! Walters To Retreat From Work

| Filed under: TV NewsBarbara Walters

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!

    wow, i give her kudos for working all those years! happy retirement!



  12. 12

    seriously, she is an embarrassment on The View at times. Out of touch, unable to pronouce guests' names, etc.



  13. 13

    She looks and acts much younger than 79. Time to retire though and do something else for a change.

    "We don't many people her age that are still working."
    Perez please read over your stuff. That sentence makes no sense what-so-ever.
    But anyway I wonder who she's referring to as 'nobodies'.



  15. 15

    Bless her heart, a lady if ever there was one but well past her tv prime. Retire and enjoy yourself Barbs!



  16. 16

    loves it



  17. 17

    When Perez talks about "we", does anyone know who "we" is?



  18. 18

    Perez
    She is retiring not retreating!! For somebody who makes a living from writing and for someone who wrote a book you have zero knowledge of the english language!!
    Learn to proof read and use spell check okay!!

  21. 21

    Good! It's about time!



  22. 22

    Classy Lady!



  25. 25

    Maybe NOW she can find one of those colored guys that she seems to have such a penchant for?



  26. 26

    She looks great for 79.



  27. 27

    Esa vieja todavia sopla :-o



  28. 28

    Miley isn't a nobody.. she is more famous than you will EVER be. It is PATHETIC that on every story you do you have to find someway to diss a girl that FIFTEEN years younger than you. GROW UP.



  29. 29

    Is it me or is anyone else happy that she's done! I can't stand Barbara, she's a trouble maker.

    Barbara loves attention to much to retreat.
    Myself, I am sick of her and her army!



  31. 31

    I've lost all respect for her over the last five years.



  32. 32

    For a second I thought Bye said Die… Die would be more fitting since a)she's so old and b)I can't stand her especially on the a loud mouth, garbage spewing platform as The View.



  33. 33

    Re: 6tsGirl – Why so much anger and hatred? She has accomplished more than you probably ever will. Good luck Barbara and enjoy your retirement!



  34. 34

    her and Regis should retire ensemble



  35. 35

    Wonder what she'll do with her free time now? –Go back to smoking her primos.



  36. 36

    GOD KNOWS SHE HAS THE MONEY TO ENJOY HER RETIREMENT! SHE'S BEEN A LITTLE BITCHY LATELY SO MAYBE IT'S TIME TO CALL IT QUITS.
    .

    .
    AND BRITNEY WISHES YOU A MERRY FUCKING CHRISTMAS!!!



  37. 37

    Good fucking riddance. Glad to see the tyrannical hag go away.



  38. 38

    She must not be that dumb, she knows everyone dies someday and LOOK she got herself EMBALMED without waiting for the last minute?



  39. 39

    i thought she was like 60 , wow she looks great for 80



  40. 40

    Miley has a career, she is far from a nobody. I don't like her as much as the next person but i'm not going to deny her immense success! Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, the Kardashians and all these other hoochy brats are the "celebrities" that Barbara's referring to. And if i were Barbara, i'd do the same thing too. The View is somewhat respected and i don't want to bring it's level down by inviting these people for a chat.

    SHE HAS ENDED HER CAREER WITH SUCH SHAME SHAME SHAME!!!!
    .
    A WHORY EMBARRASSMENT TO WOMEN!!
    .
    SHE OFTEN SPEAKS OF HOW HARD IT WAS FOR HER TO BREAK INTO THE BUSINESS AS A WOMAN. HOW SHE IS A PIONEER!!!
    .
    YET SHE HAS SPENT THE LAST DECADE BEING A VISIOUS BEAST TO EVERY WOMAN WHO HAS ALSO WORKED THROUGH OBSTACLES TO ACHEIVE GREATNESS!!
    .
    SHE AND JOY SIT THERE AND LAUGHINGLY TEAR DOWN ANY WOMAN SMARTER, YOUNGER, AND/OR MORE SUCCESSFUL!!
    .
    SHE WILL ALWAYS PULL THE 'SLAP AND A KISS' CATTY PLOY OF CONDESCENDINGLY PRETENDING TO HAVE "KLASS" WHILE TEARING SOMEONE DOWN!!
    .
    WE KNOW YOU ARE TRULY ABOUT TO BE A BEASTLY WHORE WHEN YOU BEGIN A SENTENCE WITH… "WHILE I HAVE SO MUCH RESPECT FOR SO AND SO, I JUST HAVE TO SAY…"
    .
    ROSIE, HILLARY, ELISABETH ETC ETC
    .
    I DON'T AGREE WITH ELISABETH POLITICALLY, BUT BABS ALWAYS PUBLICLY PATRONIZES HER BY DELIBERATELY TREATING HER BEST RATINGS GETTER LIKE A LITTLE POODLE WHO SITS THERE. NOT FAR FROM THE TRUTH, BUT BABS GETS VISIBLE PLEASURE BY LOOKING DOWN HER NOSE AT HER AND TRYING TO DISCREDIT HER.
    .
    SHE DOES IT TO EVERY WOMAN WHO HAS MADE SIGNIFICANT ACHIEVEMENTS.

    I think when the time actually comes she will simply reduce her schedule, not abandon it. It is hard to walk away completely.
