The View to Reunite All 11 Co-Hosts -- Elisabeth & Rosie Included! -- for Barbara Walters Tribute

107600_7638Reunited and it feels so… contentious? Nah, probably not — unless there’s a spontaneous “Hot Topics” segment on politics or religion or vaccines.

In any event, The View will gather all 11 past and present co-hosts on one stage on Thursday morning, May 15 (11/10c) for a live celebration of the show’s creator/legendary newscaster Barbara Walters, who will retire from daily television the following day.

Slated to appear on the installment are: Meredith Vieira, Star Jones, Joy Behar, Debbie Matenopoulos, Lisa Ling, Rosie O’Donnell, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the current lineup of Sherri Shepherd, Jenny McCarthy, Whoopi Goldberg and Walters (who happens to be the last remaining panelist from the original lineup that debuted in 1997).

Walters isn’t completely retiring, of course: She’ll continue in the role of The View‘s executive producer alongside Bill Geddie, her producing partner of more than 25 years.

According to a network release, 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, both on screen and off.
