‘They’re making me quit’: Barbara Walters’ friend Lisa Ling says late TV icon was muscled out of her seat on The View

The late Barbara Walters was muscled out of her seat on The View – the show she created – in 2014, according to her friend Lisa Ling.

Ling, 49, speaking with The Cut Monday, said that Walters – who died at 93 this past December – made the revelation to her on her last day filming the ABC chat roundtable in 2014.

Ling, who is currently a reporter for CNN, told the outlet that she had ‘never shared this [information] with anyone.’

Ling said that on the last day of filming, she said to Walters off-camera of her looming retirement, ‘Barbara, in a couple of months, are you going to be lounging in a hammock in Tahiti?’

Ling said Walters responded to her in a whisper, ‘They’re making me quit.’
