Barbara Walters’ live TV appearances on “The View” are being limited by ABC executives, as the network seeks to focus on revamping the daytime talk show, reports the New York Post’s Page Six.
Walters reportedly wanted to appear live on the show when it returned last week with a new set and co-hosts, but ABC executives are said to have turned down the idea. Instead, she was featured in a taped segment.
Walters denied seeking to have airtime on the show, the story says. She told the publication, “How silly! I deliberately taped a piece at the top, gave it my blessing, and now they’re off to the races.”
