These goodbye shows are sort of like funerals and weddings– most of “family” even if they hate each guts will try to get along for the event. I have no doubt these ladies will put any ill will aside to wish good will to Ms. Walters on her retirement. I will try to watch, but might need some aspirin ready in case I get a headache trying to listen to eleven women talk over each at once.

How will anyone get a word in edgewise? Those yentas talk all over each other as it is. Poor Jason Thompson barely said a word when he was guest co-host a while back.

Well personally, She deserves it…she has had a remarkable career…sadly at her age, she is has a lot more to look back on as opposed to ahead…allow her to “have her day” …make her feel special and still relevant… Enjoy your moment Barb…and thanks for showing us IT CAN be done!
