Holy shiz! We didn't think this day would ever come!
At the age of 82, Barbara Walters has reportedly decided to retire in the following year, as she was overheard telling the President exactly that during a recent interview!
Microphones apparently picked up Babs telling him:
"I need one more interview with you because I'm retiring next year."
Aww! If this is true, then it's certainly a bittersweet revelation!
With the longevity of the career she's had, we commend her still holding more than her own in the biz, but we're certainly going to miss her!
ABC News EVP Jeff Schneider has issued the following statement regarding this report:
“Barbara has joked that she is retiring every year since the Clinton Administration. Anyone who just did a day trip to Syria and a 90 minute primetime special and interview with the President and First Lady hardly sounds like someone retiring from anything."
Phew! Glad to know that was just a nasty rumor!
Babara for life!
