Gonna place the blame on ABC, Babs?
According to new reports, Barbara Walters is said to be furious with ABC over the treatment of her long running show 'The View'.
Sources spoke to PageSix:
“She feels they’ve ruined the franchise that she and Bill Geddie built. Instead of focusing on smart, educated women with strong talent, they cast uninformed child actors on the show. The legacy has been compromised because of poor casting and bad leadership under ABC News,”
"Uninformed child actors"......clearly a dig at Raven Symone and Candace Cameron Bure, who have both announced their departures.
Some sources are even claiming that it's because of her feelings that Walters sat out the reunion episode of the program which featured original hosts Joy Behar, Meredith Vieira, Star Jones, and Debbie Matenopolous.
However, a rep for Barbara claimed her omission from the show that day was because of a trip planned with her daughter.
On the heels of Raven and Candace leaving, the show is left with moderator Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin, Paula Faris and Jedidah Bila.
Who's the next to go?
