How do you really feel, Julie Chen?
When Chen appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live Tuesday, a viewer asked her to comment on a recent report in The New York Post's Page Six. The article in question claimed Barbara Walters is "furious at ABC" for ruining The View's legacy following her 2014 retirement.
"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," a source told the gossip column. "The legacy has been compromised because of poor casting and bad leadership under ABC News." On the flip side, Walters' rep insisted she "has a wonderful relationship with the show." Furthermore, she remains an executive producer on the long-running series, and she "calls the control room multiple times a week to offer her suggestions."
