Since The View debuted in August 1997, nearly a dozen women have debated current events, interviewed famous personalities and caused plenty of controversy. With only four people left on the panel—Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy—late-night host Jimmy Kimmel boldly asked the show's creator who she misses the least on Monday, Nov. 18.
Speaking to Walters on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the comedian repeatedly asked the Emmy-winning broadcaster to name her least favorite panelist. "I'm trying to avoid it," the said. "That's why I'm talking so much."
Kimmel rattled off a list of names and then told Walters, "I've narrowed it down to Rosie O'Donnell and Star Jones." Walters burst into a fit of giggles and quipped, "They're both sort of laid-back, quiet and easygoing." All jokes aside, she praised the larger-than-life TV stars. "I happen to be fond of both of them, which you will not believe. They are very talented women."
Asked again who her least favorite person is, Walters joked, "I don't like any of them."
Despite their on-camera fights, behind the scenes, the women act like sisters. "You cannot have that show and work as closely as we have if you don't [like each other]," Walters said. "The View was my creation and I wanted to show that women did like each other and women could talk to each other."
Kimmel proved to be persistent, asking the TV journalist to throw some shade before the interview ended. "I am not going there," Walters, 84, said with a smile. "Although, if you keep this up, I may go somewhere else!"
