We shall see, but here is the plan.  According to The Wrap, during Walters final week on The View, circle the May 15th episode. That is when the long-running ABC morning talk show brings back all of Walters former co-hosts and mixes them in with the present ones … 11 in total!

Returning for the episode will be: Meredith Vieira, Star Jones, Joy Behar, Debbie Matenopoulos, Lisa Ling, Rosie O’Donnell  and Elisabeth Hasselbeck who will be hand along with present co-hosts; Sherri Shepherd, Jenny McCarthy, Whoopi Goldberg and Barbara herself.

The following day, after more than five decades on the air, Walters will say farewell to daily television with her final co-host appearance on The View that morning on Friday May 16th.  As previously announced, The View will commemorate Walters’ final week (May 12-16) with “ABC: A Barbara Celebration” featuring surprise guests, dedicated segments, and retrospectives of Walters’ life.

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!

Laurence Fishburne to Present Levar Burton with Lifetime Achievement Honors at ‘Children’s & Family Emmy Awards’

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) announced today that Laurence Fishburne (ex-Josh Hall, One Life to Live 1973-1976 ) will present Levar Burton with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the upcoming Children’s & Family Emmys on December 11th from the Wilshire Ebell theatre in Los Angeles.

Fishburne, who collectively had won a Tony, NAACAP and Emmy Awards, will honor his longtime friend for the body of his work. Most notable among their many collaborations was when Burton served as executive producer for the 2016 remake of Roots, which starred Fishburne.

As many know, Levar Burton is an actor, director and educator who has taught generations of children about the joys of reading through his show Reading Rainbow. Throughout his career, Levar has been honored with 13 Emmy Awards, 3 NAACP Awards, a Grammy Award for Spoken Word Album, a Peabody Award, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, among other accolades.

Burton is the award-winning author of The Rhino Who Swallowed a Storm, A Kids Book About Imagination, and his Grammy Nominated book, Aftermath. His podcast, LeVar Burton Reads, has been downloaded more than 25 million times. Recently, he launched the LeVar Burton Book Club via the Fable app.

The Children’s & Family Emmy ceremony will be hosted by former 30 Rock star, Jack McBrayer, and will be streamed live on NATAS’ dedicated viewing platform powered by Vimeo, available on the web at Watch.TheEmmys.TV and via The Emmys apps for iOS, tvOS, Android, FireTV, and Roku.

GH’s Josh Swickard Stars in HBO Max Film ‘A Hollywood Christmas’

Circle Thursday, December 1st! That’s when you can see General Hospital’s Josh Swickard (Chase) in yet another holiday film.  This time, Swickard stars alongside Jessika Van in A H0llywood Christmas streaming on HBO Max.

In story, A Hollywood Christmas follows Jessica, a successful Christmas movie director, who begins living her own real-life Christmas movie when a handsome television executive named Christopher (played by Swickard), shows up on the set.

Sent by the network to decide if producing Christmas movies are worth the expense, Christopher’s presence threatens to halt production on Jessica’s latest film. With Christopher looking over her shoulder on behalf of the network, Jessica now has to juggle: actors on the set falling in and out of love, an elf dog, and her own romantic feelings for the network exec!

As many are aware, Josh stars in many holiday films, so it’s a bit of send-up about a guy who is in Christmas movies starring in a movie about the making of one.

Warner Brothers posted tune-in info on their official Instagram a few days ago, sharing, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… #AHollywoodChristmas premieres in SIX Days! Spend the #HolidaysWithHBOMax.”

You can check out the trailer below.

Will you be checking out Josh in ‘A Hollywood Christmas’ starting this Thursday? Comment below.
