Oprah Winfrey and More Show Up For Barbara Walter’s Last ‘View’

By  | 

Bye, bye Barbara, you will be missed!

Barbara Walters said her final farewell to “The View” today and a who’s who of Newswomen were there for the big send-off!

Walter’s paved the way for ALL women in the biz, so it was only right for Oprah Winfrey, Diane Sawyer, Connie Chung, Katie Couric, Robin Roberts and more to show up and show some love.

And even though Barbara’s “The View” co-host Sherri Shepherd is in the middle of increasing divorce drama, she was in good spirits for the farewell taping and took to Instagram and documented the festivities.

My second “mama” @BarbaraJWalters taught me how to push past a NO… How to stand up for what I believe… How to say “I’m still talking…” How to ask the questions that nobody will… How to be grace under fire AND how to get my son Jeffrey off his pacifier (don’t let the tears bother you!) Barbara took a chance and believed in me when I didn’t even believe in me. Thank you for the master class in life. I love you lady #cantlivewithoutmyladies

God thank you for letting this legal secretary turned struggling comic turned struggling actress be a part of talk show history! @Oprah looks amazing! #dreamsdocometrue

THIS! A sister… A mentor… An inspiration… A God lover… An encourager. @Oprah

Although we will no longer see the 50 year TV vet at “The View” table daily, Barbara still plans on being a big part of the show. She will continue on as the Executive producer alongside good friend and producing partner Bill Geddie.

CONGRATS Barbara, now YOU take a little time and enjoy The View!

    Thanks for all your hard work, Barbara; you’re a real pro. My only question is why does Oprah have to be the center of attention and in the celebrity photo. I thought we were honoring Barbara. Just for once I’d like to see a humble Oprah; she’s like a bull in a glass shop. It’s bad enough we have to put up with her being on the cover of every issue of her magazine, but yesterday’s event was supposed to be about honoring Barbara Walters.
