She stepped away from her seat on “The View,” but Barbara Walters isn’t ready to give up her annual special reflecting on the year passed.
On Tuesday (October 21), the retired television personality revealed that she is set to host her “10 Most Fascinating People” special this year and unveiled a few of the featured names on her list.
“I was absolutely delighted when ABC approached me to do another year of ‘10 Most Fascinating People’,” Walters explained. “I know we said last year was our last, but there are just too many fascinating people out there… and you never pass up the opportunity to interview Oprah, Neil, Chelsea, or Scarlett.”
For 2014, Walters will feature Scarlett Johansson, Neil Patrick Harris, Oprah Winfey and Chelsea Clinton. The remaining list members will be announced soon.
Barbara started the show in 1993 and last year featured big names like Jennifer Lawrence, Miley Cyrus and Hilary Clinton.
As for her life post-retirement, Walters told ABC News that she is ready to enjoy her down time. “I have always had a schedule. I’ve always had deadlines. I’ve always had things to do. It will be nice to get up and say, ‘What do I have to do today? Nothing!'”
