Barbara Walters, 82, reportedly dropped a bombshell today during an interview with President Obama. According to a source who was present during the White House interview, Walters said she will retire next year, TMZ.com reports.
The website reports: “According to the source, during a break in the action, Barbara leaned over to Obama and said, ‘I need one more interview with you because I’m retiring next year.’ Here’s the thing … Barbara’s mic was open when she said it, and lots of people were listening.”
In a classic non-denial, denial, Jeff Schneider, Sr. VP of ABC News, told TMZ, "Barbara has joked that she is retiring every year since the Clinton Administration. Anyone who just did a day trip to Syria, 90-minute prime time special and an interview with the President and First Lady hardly sounds like someone retiring from anything."
