'The View' reunites all 11 co-hosts to celebrate Barbara Walters
Barbara Walters, we're going to miss seeing you on "The View!" Friday will mark the 84-year-old co-host's final day as a regular on the ABC series, and to honor her 16-year stint on the daytime talk show, "The View" reunited all 11 co-hosts Thursday for the first time in history.
In a special "Dj View" segment, co-hosts past and present caught up and shared some of their favorite memories from their time on the show with Babs. Rosie O'Donnell even made light of her and Elisabeth Hasselbeck's contentious on-air relationship, joking that what she missed most about "The View" was "fighting with the skinny one."

Really, though, Rosie said she missed the "camaraderie" of the show, adding, "I love the audience."
Meredith Vieira, who served as moderator on "The View" from its debut in 1997 until she joined TODAY as co-anchor in 2006, admitted to being nervous in the beginning.
"You went on to have an even bigger career," Barbara told her, "and I take full credit!"

Star Jones, Debbie Matenopoulos, Lisa Ling and Joy Behar came back to their old stomping ground to honor Babs, and of course current co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy were present, too.
Clearly, the lack of Barbara's daily presence is going to hit hard. The legendary journalist will, however, continue to serve as an executive producer on the show.
